This article amazes us being the readers.
This is especially so in the diagram displayed, “parallels in history” that touches on specific numbers being used repetitively, as a testimony of Divine work at hand. While scholars may come close to hint an interesting pattern how God works in the lives of historical figures, never have we heard or read such precision and sureness about the interpretation of history and Almighty, All Loving God has been working behind history.
A remarkable findings and explanation.

Hi, I have recommended the 2 hr lecture of the DP on youtube to many people. And suggest someone replacing ying and yang in the principle of creation with male and female, which is more consistent and resonates with Genesis 1:27 (God created in image of male and female) and Romans 1:20 (God’s invisible nature clearly seen in what God has created through male and female.)

Your interpretation about the fall between Lucifer and Eve is so very far to be true to the teaching of Sun Myung Moon (Exposition of the Divine Principle). Lucifer had “real” sexual relationship with Eve (exchange of elements from Lucifer to Eve) it was just not physical because Lucifer is a spirit entity (angelic). The violation of Eve by Lucifer was committed first then fallen Eve learned from Lucifer the egoistic(self-centered) nature and in the same position as Lucifer the “experienced” fallen Eve then with the same method seduced Adam to fall.

Thank you, Helen, for your feedback. However, I am not clear as to why you find the article inconsistent with the explanation of the Fall you present. The article notes “The essence of the fall is that Eve in an immature state was seduced sexually by an angelic being (Lucifer). Eve then seduced Adam.” There is a note to explain (as you did) that Lucifer being an angelic being did not have a physical sexual relationship with Eve; the relationship with Adam, however, was physical and completed the Fall: “This is not to say that Eve and Lucifer had a physical relationship. Rather her relationship with Lucifer is seen as the “spiritual fall,” which was consummated when she and Adam had sex prematurely outside of God’s blessing.”

Perhaps you find the text to imply that there was no actual relationship between Lucifer and Eve? To avoid such confusion, the note will be revised to clarify that their relationship involved an exchange of elements from Lucifer to Eve.

Hello, New World Encyclopedia team!
We made a resource for studying the Divine Principle https://principle.study/en/. The main purpose is to make the Divine Principle technically easy to read and give presentations. For that, we add diagrams and switch colors to select the necessary level of presentation. Also, along with the English language, we added Korean original text. Now our website has English, Ukrainian, Russian, and Polish languages, but we plan to add more.

Could you add a link to our website to the article about Divine Principle?
