THE MISTAKE Began WHEN....

“The mistake began when God was created in a male image…. That makes life so perverted and death so unnatural. We should have imagined life as created in the birth-pain of God the Mother. Then we would understand why we, Her children, have inherited pain, for we would know that our life’s rhythm beats from Her great heart, torn with the agony of love and birth. And we would feel that death meant reunion with Her, a passing back into Her substance, blood of Her blood again, peace of Her peace! Now wouldn’t that be more logical and satisfying than having God a male whose chest thunders with egotism and is too hard for tired heads and thoroughly comfortless?” (From Eugene O’Neill's Strange Interlude).

I love your blog. And I totally agree! Of course God is a Mother. Have you read "The Fall: The Evidence for a Golden Age, 6,000 years of Insanity and the Dawning of a New Era"? You ought to check it out.

"The Fall is a major work that overturns mainstream current thinking on the nature of civilization and human nature. It draws on the increasing evidence accumulated over recent decades that prehistoric humanity was peaceful and egalitarian, rather than war-like and crude. It is not natural for human beings to kill each other, for men to oppress women, for individuals to accumulate massive wealth and power, or to abuse nature. The worldwide myths of a Golden Age or an original paradise have a factual, archaeological basis."

Keep up the good work!

Thank you, thank you for the praise, mary. It's just what keeps us bloggers going, wonderful praise like yours. Yes, I've read *The Fall* and just ate it right up. Gave my copy to a friend, who liked it so much she went out and bought her own. I'm so glad you found it too!

Hey, mr. kim/mick bright kim from South Korea, welcome to RGT!

Animals are living in Heaven without blame, yet they have no religion.

Right?

So you think religion is unnecessary? A roadblock to heaven? Both?
