Well the Bible does not refer to the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge as an apple. That is man's popular opinion.

Paintings and drawings are only the artist's view. There are also pictures of Jesus with different ethnicities. FOr example where I live I see lots of pictures that portray Jesus as white and someone else might see pictures of him as Asian. The Bible says he had course hair like sheep's wool and olive skin.

The bible talks of Adam eating a fruit from the tree of knowing. It was not literally a tree, nor did Adam eat an actual fruit, the whole story was said in metaphors. Most Christians make the mistake of taking the bible to be literal truth and therein lies the problem. And no, we shouldn't be "aloud" in paradise, we should be quiet, in deference to the Big Man.

I don't think it was an apple, whatever fruit it was isn't here anymore. At least that is what I think.
