The woman (Eve) is told that there is going to be conflict between her and the man. The man is told that there is going to be conflict between him and the soil.
And this is where you and I come in. We were born into a world, into a condition of disconnection. Things were created in a certain way, and they're not that way, and we feel it in every fiber of our being.
Is this why the first thing newborns do is cry?
Rob Bell, sex god, p. 40
One wouldn't suppose that the first thing a newborn does is cry because, well, the first thing that happens to it is that the doctor spanks it, would one?
And he does it for the child's own good, too, to help it to start breathing. If he doesn't, the child will suffocate. Severe damage or even death may result from it.
While kind of seeing his point, Bell does go a bit far with the newborn analogy. One must go a ways before saying that those just born are experiencing existential angst.
