Christianity story of the 'tree of knowledge of good and evil' https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tree_of ... d_and_evil is about not going overboard. E.g. God said can eat from every tree (including tree of life) but cannot know more than one ought to (by God's design of Eden) : then all creation will live in perpetual 'bliss', until time comes when man yielded to temptation and ate from the tree of knowledge (e.g. get knowledge from the tree rather than from God himself).
This symbolises a certain preliminary balance that God wanted to maintain INSIDE the Garden of Eden (man could eat from almost all trees (except one)). Some Jewish Rabbi have postulated that maybe in future, man could eat from the Tree of Knowledge, but they were not mature enough to eat the fruit when they disobeyed God's word and ate from it- thus suffering the consequence of death.
Bhuddism teaches the middle way although there is no concept of God per se in Buddhism, but u can see the same precept as the tree of knowledge being probably too intense knowledge that Adam and Eve were not able to assimilate, to their own detriment/ death. "Avoiding both these extremes, the Tathagata (the Perfect One) has realized the Middle Path; it gives vision, gives knowledge, and leads to calm, to insight, to enlightenment and to Nibbana." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_ ... usehold%20
Thus, there are strong similarities between Judaism, Christianity and Bhuddism and Singaporeans ought to celebrate these similarities and practice equanimity, rather than go on a blind rampage and be unknowingly hostile towards other religious groups.
