Actually it WAS holy writ that knowledge was the
Original Sin that got us kicked out of Eden. BUT the
whole point of the xtian doctrine, as opposed to the
ancient Judean tradition, was that the sacrifice of  
Jesus on the cross erased all our sins including the
original one. Thus to a xtian, knowledge is no longer
a sin. Did they even read their own book?
