No, not 'beef" -- forbidden fruit. So I guess Locke getting Sawyer to strangle his dad is going to reverse original sin. Brilliant.

#68: Daddy issues = Garden of Eden
Everyone on the island has Daddy issues. They all have some beef with their fathers—they’ve all been mistreated, or at least feel mistreated, by their fathers. This also seems to point to the ULTIMATE Daddy issue, the issue that all mankind has with the FATHER OF MANKIND…Adam. The one who originally did all his children wrong by partaking of the forbidden fruit, setting into motion the CURSE, (the numbers) and dooming all of mankind to death. Those chosen to attempt to pass the judgment test would obviously have daddy issues of some sort, if they are trying to reverse the action of Adam.
