Or maybe they just lost their ability to think innocently.
What if they ate the freewill apple in the Garden and it brought along a loss of innocence?
I think gaining clothing could be more freeing than losing it. I don't think primitive people are mentally freer than modern ones. A primitive person has a struggle to get and maintain the big 3 things: food, clothing and shelter.
At the very least people wearing clothes means people are getting better at obtaining things for themselves. This is where the human mind would start to depend on itself more and God less though it might have completely depended on Him before.
A state of freewill could equal an imbalance between knowledge and innocence. Now what caused the imbalance?
