Paradise Felicia Appenteng

In light of recent posts about Lost Paradises, I thought that it might be interesting to listen to a discussion about the original loss of Paradise and the fall of mankind.  An examination of the nature of sin is necessary to understand lost Paradises because perfect places and imperfect beings are inextricably bound to each other. 

In this line of thought, I found this idea to be a perfect introduction to one of my favorite programmes, the BBC Radio show, In Our Time, hosted by Melvyn Bragg.  On April 8th, 2004, he held a discussion called "The Fall"

How would you characterize man’s relationship to Paradise throughout history?  Could you frame history as an attempt to achieve the impossible Paradise?
