What do you think about how the Bible depicts God's choices about where to place the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? Do you think there is some way to interpret the Genesis story about the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil that makes God look sensible, reasonable, and intelligent?

If so, your solution cannot add anything new that's not already in the biblical text and cannot leave out any details that the Bible provides.
