I"m in no mood to dig through thirty pages of flak against my like-minded brethren. Can I get a better summary?

Some questions were also asked and sometimes went unanswered *cough*

You're not a theistic satanist, Chillz, are you? A notion was thrown into the debate about how people became satanists after feeling betrayed by god, and I was thinking about the implications of this on your morals..

Just would like to point something out, it may or may not have already been covered. (didn't quite read all 32 pages) God put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil into the bible in order for there to be free will. If there was no choice then we would not be entities of our own, we would simply have no choice but to love and obey him. But he allowed for us to choose not to follow him.
In summation, the tree made free will exist.

So God gave us the ability to sin, and thus gave us limited hope for passing his arbitrary test to gain access to eternal happiness?

I would choose to say that God gave us the ability to choose our own destiny, and it was up to us to decide where we wanted to go with it.

You must agree that you would rather have the choice to follow God or not. Rather than being without option.

Well, we aren't the ones choosing, though. Everyone says we have the ability to choose, but really the choice falls down to "Follow these rules" or not. You can be a great person, but if you aren't following the rules to a tee (which includes very asinine rules)...then you are screwed.

You must agree that you would rather have the choice to follow God or not. Rather than being without option.

Which one?

I can agree it is nice, but Yahweh didn't create that option. Also, I'm not fond of the idea that my choice in deity could decide what afterlife I live.

Well, I am arguing from the standpoint of Born Again Christianity, which does not state that you must follow the rules to a tee or you are screwed.
I'm not sure what you know, but at no point in the bible did God condemn someone to Hell after there first sin. Rather, he has set up systems for forgiveness so that even the most flawed humans can be with him for eternity if the choose.

Not sure what you mean here. Logically,

1) if there is no tree there is no choice.
2) God created the tree
3) God created the choice.

Am I incorrect?
