Towards the end of Devil's Advocate, John Milton makes a long speech to Kevin. In part of this he gives Kevin an "inside information" into God and quotes:
He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift and then what does He do? I swear, for His own amusement, His own private cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It’s the goof of all time. Look, but don’t touch. Touch, but don’t taste. Taste, don’t swallow.
What exactly does he mean by "sets the rules in opposition", and the examples after as well eg. look but don't touch? I am guessing this is referring to rules of a religion since physically humans are obviously able to look and touch, touch and taste etc.
