The most controversial book you will ever read!

The Sin Paradox; the case against Adam, Eve, and the Serpent—

A case not about their guilt or innocence, but whether the evidence points to the actual crime they committed. 

Could the sin of Adam and Eve be the beginning of a chain of events linking the golden calf, Passover, the dispersions, death, murder, debt, wars, abortion, even the last days of Jesus in a common Biblical pattern?


         The Sin Paradox offers a fresh perspective, challenging the traditional narrative while engaging readers in an intriguing examination of theological history. It presents a unique opportunity to dissect, analyze, and contemplate the origins of humankind’s moral fabric.

          In this compelling work, I delve into an unprecedented inquiry, treating the ancient tale as a criminal case—examining the motives, means, and elusive truth behind the guilt of Adam, Eve, and the Serpent. Their culpability is not in question; what remains shrouded in mystery is the specific act that transgressed the divine commands, birthing mankind’s first sin.

         The repercussions of their actions reverberate throughout history, shaping humanity and all of creation; but what could two individuals with nothing, not even garments, have committed that would cascade into an epoch-defining transgression impacting the entirety of existence?

              The question now becomes, could our modern society be committing the same sin as Adam and Eve? Are we now about to come face to face with our own judgment?

As seen on

Original Sin

What happened in the Garden of Eden?
What did Adam and Eve do?

*     A Paradox

      So, what is a paradox?

      A paradox can be explained as a statement, opinion, or tenant that on its surface may appear contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet when researched further may prove to be true.

*    The Accused

      Adam, Eve, and the Serpent-Satan

     The actions of Adam, Eve, and the Serpent brought on themselves and all of creation the righteous judgment of God. What could two people who have nothing, not even clothing do to directly affect all of humanity, human history, even all of creation itself?   Find out, read, "The Sin Paradox, the case against Adam, Eve, and the Serpent".

*    A Legal Challenge

      You are the Jury


      As with any criminal case, the defendants are presented, their means and motives are then revealed and detailed. This takes place in an effort to determine the truth of the guilt or innocence of the accused.

      The same process is true in The Sin Paradox, the case against Adam, Eve, and the Serpent.

The difference is their guilt has been determined. Their punishments have been handed down. All that has been left to discover is what their actual crime was. They clearly broke the commands of God. The question remains, what was that very specific overt action? What did they actually do which disobeyed God? What was mankind’s first or Original Sin?

     They ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they learned good and evil, they ate the fruit. These are the typical easy answers but, they do not answer the question, what  was that fruit?

    What did they actually do?

    Find out all the details, read;

The Sin Paradox,

the case against Adam, Eve, and the Serpent.


In The Sin Paradox, author D. B. Evans shares his revelatory answers to a number of important questions he asked to God—


Then late one night God answered with a single whispered word of knowledge

The Sin Paradox investigates the events in the Garden of Eden and shows how man’s sin, God’s righteous judgment and all of Scriptures are all linked with a single action. Learn how the events in Eden are the beginning of a specific pattern which weaves its way through all of Scriptures in a common thread of sin, judgment, sacrifice, and redemption.

Have you ever asked why God did something a certain way?  Here are just some of the questions asked and answered.   

  • What did Adam and Eve do?

  • What kind of fruit was it?

  • Why did Satan take the form of a serpent?

  • Why did Satan do it?

  • Why did Jesus have to die?

  • Why did He have to die the way He did?

  • Why did the last days of Jesus's life play out the way they did?

  • How does the sinful act of Adam and Eve permeate all of subsequent human existence and actions such as wars, debt, abortion, greed and all the other sins mankind experiences even to this day?

  • What does the Passover, the blood on the door and the Last supper have in common with what took place in Eden?


      What if all these questions and many more, could be answered with a singlular event and action? All would be connected with a consistant Biblical thread.  Is there a singlular action, beginning with Adam and Eve which links them all together in a clear progression through the books and history of the Bible?

      Well, I asked God these very questions, then late one night the answer came in a whispered word to my mind, my soul.   

The question now is, could our modern society be committing the same sin as Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden?


What Others have Said

Comments from theologians, professional editors, and others who have read

"The Sin Paradox, the case against Adam, Eve, and the Serpent".

  • A New Theory

    Whispered word

    Every theologian and his uncle has a theory about what really happened in the Garden of Eden. What, exactly, did our first ancestors do that messed things up so badly for the rest of us? There are scores of theories, ranging from the literal to the metaphorical and every place in between. Most of the theories seem pretty plausible. That’s the genius of the story; it lends itself to an almost infinite variety of interpretations. The latest one is laid out in The Sin Paradox, by D.B. Evans. While working on another, unrelated theological thesis, he heard the whisper of a single word, which, he believes, gave him the answer to perhaps the oldest and most important question in the annals of human history: What, exactly, was the sin committed in the Garden of Eden?


  • The Bible is Literally True

    A Lot to Like

    There’s a lot to like about this book. Bible interpretation is tricky business. As the author himself says, “It is said, and I agree with the point, the Bible is to be considered literally true. The problem arises when the words used are taken too literally or rather hyper-literally.” The author does not make that mistake. In fact, it is the perfect balance he strikes between the literal and the figurative that allows him to craft an interpretation of what happened in the Garden that is free of any of the usual contrivances, ambiguities, and evasions that characterize most other interpretations.


  • Impressive

    Corrorborating Evidence

    I was also impressed by the sheer volume of corroborating evidence the author presented for his thesis.


  • Precise and Bold Answers

    Special Appeal

    Everyone knows about the story of Adam and Eve, and almost everyone, at one time or another, has wondered about that first sin. What exactly was it? Why did it demand such a harsh penalty? Was it literal or figurative? Or both? Evans’s book provides precise, bold answers to these questions. This book will have a special appeal to biblical scholars, as Evans relies heavily on the meanings of the original Hebrew words.


  • A Whispered Word Changed Everything

    People will be talking

    But whether it offends or excites or stuns, one thing is for sure: it will get people talking. Evans has done the near-impossible; he has put an entirely new spin on an old story that most of us thought had either already been figured out or was beyond figuring out. That one word whispered in his ear has changed everything.


  • Reems of Supporting Evidence

    A fascinating book

    This is a fascinating book in which the author lays out his theory what man's first sin was.

    He backs it up with reams of supporting evidence. The end consists of some closing thoughts in which he observes that the first sin, continues on today. He says that this "will soon reach an apex and we will be driven from the land as has always been the case


  • New and Unglossed Understanding

    Relevant to today

    The author lays out a theory to try and explain what the original sin was that Adam and Eve committed. This topic is glossed over in most sermons and teachings as there is not much written about what happened in the bible. It is probably one of the two most significant events to affect mankind. As the author states in the book, keep an open mind, read the bible verses for yourself and pray about it before you make up your mind as to the conclusions. In today's political climate, it becomes more relevant every day.


  • Very Informative

    A realization

    Very informative. Made me realize how much original sin is referenced in bible.


  • Well Researched

    Highly Recommended

    This was well researched and very well written. An interesting new perspective on an ancient ideal. Great read. I highly recommend

          "The Sin Paradox" is a gripping and thought-provoking book that challenges readers to think deeply about their faith and the role of God in their lives. Drawing on the events that occurred in the Garden of Eden, Evans delves into the idea of incurring a death penalty and the cursing of creation, and offers a fresh perspective on the personal relationship with God. The book is a must-read for anyone seeking answers to important Bible questions.

      As a seasoned author and speaker, Evans has been interviewed on the prestigious radio show “People of Distinction with Benjie Cole”. His expertise and passion for his subject matter are evident in every interview, where he explores topics related to faith, religion, and the Bible with clarity and insight. 

For Evans, the journey of writing "The Sin Paradox" and promoting his message has been a deeply personal one. As he states, "My goal as an author and speaker is to promote the Gospel, the Bible, and belief in God. I want to inspire others to explore their faith and develop a deeper relationship with God. Through my writing and speaking, I hope to help people find hope, redemption, and meaning in their lives."

His book, "The Sin Paradox", is a powerful testament to his knowledge, insight, and faith, and is a must-read for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of God and the Bible. Join him on his journey of hope, redemption, and faith - you won't regret it.
