Serpents Eat Dust

God curses the serpent. From now on the serpent will crawl on his belly

        and eat dust. One wonders how he got around before — by hopping on his

        tail, perhaps? But snakes don’t eat dust, do they? 3:14

Respond: The serpent is the devil (Rev 12:9 & Rev 20:2) The Jacobson’s organ helps the snake smell. As a snake forked tongue darts out to senses its surroundings, it, at least occasionally, licks the ground or picks up dust particles. Once the snake pulls in its tongue,  its inserts the tips of its forked tongue into the two openings of the Jacobson’s organ, where the particles are identified and analyzed. The snake’s brain can “read” the smells and taste from its tongue. So, in a way, “snakes really do eat dust”.
