Is a woman superior to "god"?
Christians claim that their god made the world perfect and all the problems are due to Eve eating an apple. The implication is that "almighty god's" plans were thwarted by a mere woman. :)

got to keep women in their place with those dogmas because in reality if women had the confidence and self esteem of men the species would probably become extinct.

[@49537,PinkPowerRanger] Never been good at spotting that... lol
She is definitely superior to the Adam character of the story.

The god wanted to keep things secret from both of these clay experiments to maintain his control and illusion of goodness.

Some outside force called “serpent” basically put Eve on to another aspect of the world her and her mate was in.

She told Adam, and instead of defending his mate when the god came, his punk ass snitched on her. What a coward!

So she got the brunt of the god punishment and wrath in the story.

You know some woman hating male wrote it.

Could just be mysogianistic bollocks, of course. Or...THE WORST case of sexism EVER known to man (or woman!).

It was just an excuse to oppress us in the past. Men have always been scared because we can give birth and take it away, the only other beings in folklore that can do that are Gods :)

Heaven forbid we figured out that our oppression was simple jealousy.

[@380163,Quizzical] Even in Ancient Greece where they had GODDESSES, women had no property or political rights. It's like Hitler saying he loves animals, despite doing horrible experiments on them and what he did to the Jewish people.

Fertility Goddesses are a GREAT symbol but symbols are not representative of a general attitude when the history points the exact opposite through anti women laws for many centuries dating back to before biblical times and well after.

It all amounts down to power struggles which is what I'm getting at, all of those anti woman sentiments represent power but I also think power and greed, jealousy, fear all go together in a weird twisted way.

[@712527,AgapeLove] Anyways back to the actual subject, introducing womb envy... they basically explain it better than I do and also give historical examples of men jealous we could give birth and the like.

Here's also another link talking about historically how women were seen as unclean because of our periods (which actually indicate fertility by the way which is not disgusting,) pregnancy and other things.

[@394395,satanburger] That's true, saying you're pro fertility because you worship Ishtar or whatevs, is like saying you're pro Jew because you worship Jesus the Messiah, meanwhile you're gassing them.
The implication is that "almighty god's" plans were thwarted by a mere woman, in a contradiction to "God's will." It gives Christians, and "Christian society," at large, an excuse to blame women for [i]anything.[/i]

Personally I blame the apples

Not true. Satan lied, and Eve believed the lie, and Adam believed Eve.

[@838988,Perkins] It's one of the things I did study when I was a christian There are various ways of attempting to explain the contradiction but it's really just a fiction, no different from any other fairy tale.
