The serpent, which is a symbol of envy, targets Eve by telling her she can be "like God." He targets her pride and envy. Those are the two worst sins there are, especially pride, which has traditionally be considered the sin on which all others are based. The envious will also destroy themselves as long as they can destroy those they envy.
The Eve talks Adam into listening to her, meaning man's greatest sin is listening to women when their motivations are pride and envy.
Want proof in real life?
Leftism, which is feminine, is based and hubris (pride) and envy.
Why do women want to move into men's fields? Envy, the belief we're having a party out here.
Why do they want to change men's fields to suit themselves? Hubris, the belief they can do it better.
Why do successful women not help less-successful women. Envy they may become their equal, and hubris, in that they think they're better than them.
Why do less attractive women want all women to be fat and ugly? Envy! Since they can't raise themselves up, they want to drag down all women to their level. Envy!
I would not say all women are motivated by pride and envy. If Pareto was right, just 80%.
Men are also motivated by pride and envy, but far less so than women. In their case it tends to be admiration, which, as the Greeks noticed, is the benign form of envy. It's why men can be mentors, but women can do so only rarely.
Again I repeat: men's greatest sin is listening to women when they are motivated by pride and envy. That is one of the reasons we are in the trouble we are in, to the point some sort of collapse is inevitable.
Then, of course, society will regroup itself, as it always does, and again men won't listen to women. Then later on, they're make the same mistakes, forgetting the lessons they've learned, and they'll start listening to women. And then we'll have the same problems - again.
