That edit...Edit

It's obviously a reference to Adam and Eve, you'd have to pull a complete half- assed,hand-wave to NOT consider it one.

Ever heard the phrase "Ever since our ancestors ate from the tree of knowladge"...? It's ludicrious to think it's not supposed to be the same basic thing. They obviously just changed it to drinking outta a fountain to not offend people.

As soon as I read that line, I instanting thought "Adam and Eve". It doesn't matter if it's a direct mention that Christianity exists in AA, my point was that the line was obviously inspired by it, and there could be considered a reference to a Labyrinthian religion. Or it could just even be a reference, without any context. 

In any case, it's worth mentioning. Like I said, it's obviously inspired by Adam and Eve. 2.26.102.56 00:18, July 9, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not convinced that the fountain of knowledge is a direct reference to the tree of knowledge. I searched the quote "Ever since our ancestors ate from the tree of knowledge" on Google and got three results. I agree that references to eating from the tree of knowledge are probably pretty common, but as it stands, fountains and trees of knowledge are just a generic mythological concept as far as I know. There's a fountain of knowledge in Norse mythology, for example. So I think that both notes should be removed as not being very notable or clear. "Similarity" type notes are rather dicey just because we as humans naturally find patterns that aren't really there, and hold onto them so much that we make the similarities vague enough that they have to be true. capefeather (talk) 21:22, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
