We don't put much stock in the bible, but there is something about the creation myth that we find intriguing. Whoever came up with the idea of a magical garden, the paradise called Eden, also knew enough to make sure there was a man and woman who were made for each other, and for whom nudity was part of their joyful, innocent state. This is the only part of the story that makes sense. Of course they would be happily nude in a garden paradise, in an existence without strife or worry; they were human beings in their natural state. If only the myth had ended there, instead of casting blame on Eve for the fall of man and introducing humanity to the concept of shame in one's body. We might still be living in a paradise of shame-free appreciation for the human form - especially the beautiful female form - if it had.
