Gen 3:14 And the Lord God said to the snake, Because you have done this you are cursed more than all cattle and every beast of the field; you will go flat on the earth, and dust will be your food all the days of your life:


Before the curse, did snake crawl on the earth as now? Could snake have legs before that? And its legs were taken away after the curse?

Actually, this is one part of the bible that isn't so bad, scientifically speaking. It is vey likely that snakes evolved from some legged lizard - as shown by studies of snake bone structure, and the discovery of some snakes/lizards with degenerated limbs.

Not quite so sure about the "cursed" and "eat dust" bit though...:wink:
