Well, I've done it now. Do you think this might be an offensive comment to leave on a Christian blog?
"Verumserum,As I've noted in earlier posts on this blog, I'm really two different people. On the one hand there's Athana the Social Scientist. On the other, there's Athana the Goddess Devotee. As the Goddess Devotee, I'm supposed to be good and accept all other religions. But as Athana the Social Scientist (and lover of humans), I find it next to impossible to do that with the god religions!!!! Why? Because I feel they're lethal to my people, my lovely, beautiful human race!
"Here’s an eye-opener book for you: James DeMeo’s Saharasia: The 4000 BCE Origins of Child Abuse, Sex Repression, Warfare and Social Violence in the Deserts of the Old World. DeMeo says gods came into existence when much of north Africa, the Middle East, and central Asia turned to desert. They (the new gods) were a response to severe deprivation and a consequent generalized mental illness. Along with the gods, responses included the “new” behaviors of child abuse, male-on-female abuse, sexual illness, war, and violence."
