New book - ‘Surprise’, reveals God’s Little Secret - If a serpent was responsible for the ‘Fall of Man’; then a worm, Oouey, could surely ‘Enlighten’ mankind! Oouey is a Simple Worm with a Simple Plan - LOVE. He wants to Save the World via B4HEART - Humanity Envisioned And Realized.Never underestimate the element of ‘Surprise'.The Legend It all started way, way back in the so-called ‘Garden of Eden,’ with Adam and Eve, who Oouey's Greatest Granddaddy, Ebenezer Worm (whose name implies Divine Help or Deliverance) tried but failed to warn and enlighten. For he attempted to prevent and later conquer evil as he stuck his neck out of ‘The Apple’ and shouted: “Excuse me, Madame,” just before the ‘Original Sin’ or first bite. But, Eve was so intoxicatingly engrossed, so enthused and relished in the process that she didn’t notice or see him, and she almost bit Ebenezer’s head off. In fact, Grampa Gooey was too slow, and he lost his tail in the inevitable act. Thus, 'Curiosity' is the ‘Original Sin’ that led to the 'Logical Fall of Mankind' per ‘Choice’ or ‘Free Will’.
Some say it was a miracle that he didn’t lose his life in this historic event. But, perhaps God did have mercy on poor ol’ Gramps since he was on a sacred mission, actually trying to warn both Adam and Eve with a slice of advice. For he knew of God’s little secret. He knew that if man indulged in the ‘Apple of Good and Evil,’ then man must also partake of the ‘Tree of Eternal Life.’
Unfortunately, since he didn’t succeed in averting the misdeed, evil manifested, and Grampa grew aghast. To make amends, he spent the rest of his life trying to get both Adam’s and Eve’s attention. But, they were too proud and salacious to listen as evil persisted and escalated. Thus, on his deathbed, in front of his entire family, he made them all promise and take a solemn vow to erase evil and pass the word on to their offspring. Hence, Oouey believes that he was deemed by fate as a duty to fulfill his Greatest Grampa's death wish — to avenge the 'Logical Fall of Man.
