Too Much Law School

The following came to me last night in a dream:

Assume the facts of Genesis, chapters 1-3. Does Adam have a claim against the snake? Against Eve? Would the answer change if consumption of forbidden fruit were judged by a negligence standard instead of strict liability? If you were Adam's lawyer, what additional facts would you want to know?

Now assume further that, in response to his expulsion from the Garden, Adam rises up against the snake and kills it. Discuss his criminal liability. What if he slew it immediately after eating of the fruit? If he slew it before eating? (Hint: the tree is a tree of "knowledge of good and evil.")
