Ancient Northern Europeans believed when they died they got sucked back into the warm, loving womb of their Great Mother Goddess Holle (Hel, Ella, Hella, Holga, Helga, Holda, etc.).

And then, from Mother's womb, you waltzed out into your next earthly incarnation.

So -- wouldn't men return sometimes as women, and women as men?

Whaddya think, dearies?

And if so, would this have handed our ancestors a different view of the opposite sex than the views we have?


We humans come in two fun models: the first can make life (let’s call this model the “Gynes”), the second cannot (let’s just for the heck of it call this model the “Non-gynes”).

And let’s just play a little joke, ok? Let's try to fool people into thinking it’s the type of human who can’t make life -- that actually made all life.

Wowza! In my humble opinion, why things got turned totally upside down and backwards -- those who can’t give birth become the divine birth givers -- is something to be very, very worried about.

But boy did those non-gynes puff and pant to give birth! Here's just a few examples of how they grasped at any straw to explain their (totally physically impossible) feat of giving birth:

Ra from Egypt gave birth from his mouth.

Zeus from Greece gave birth through his head.

Atum from Egypt (Heliopolis) created the first two humans by masturbation and self-fertilization through his mouth.

Kun from China gave birth by “Caesarian section.”

Ymir from Norseland gave birth from his “sweaty armpit."

Loki from Norseland “Gave birth to Odin’s horse after making himself pregnant by eating a woman’s heart.”

Kumarbi of the Hittites became pregnant “by eating his rival’s penis…."

Apollo of Greece gave birth by sitting on eggs.

Jehovah from all over gave birth by waving a magic wand over a rib.

To my great shame and horror, I live in a place calling itself "a Christian nation."

Today I watched a Christian dude open up a U.S. Senate session by reading from the bloody butchery book this nation lives by, one of the most barbaric books ever written: the Bible.

Although your Christian minister will bend over backwards to hide it, this butchery book is dripping with HUNDREDS of little bloody gems like the following:

"And the Lord said ... take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun...." Numbers 25:4

"He (the Lord God Jehovah) hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcasses...." Isaiah 34: 2-3

"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones [i.e., infants and toddlers] against the stones" Psalms 137.9

"Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth." Zechariah 14:12

And my personal fave (it has rhyming words in it):

"The sword of the LORD is filled with blood." Isaiah 34: 6***

Gee. I wonder. Could there be any connection between verses like these* and the fact that we elect presidents who go gaga over torturing people? (Most other societies** don't torture.)

The fact that we adore war? (Many societies don't do war; go to to see.)

The fact that we have runaway child abuse? (Many if not most other societies don't damage their own kiddies).

"Religions" that center around war gods like Jehovah, Allah and Yahweh aren't religions at all. They're really -- secretly -- political control mechanisms.

These so-called religions are sacs of sickness. And out of love for ourselves, our children, and the world in general, we need to pass laws making them illegal. And ASAP!
* And there are (literally) hundreds more where they came from.
** Hundreds of different cultural groups exist in our world. Most of the indigenous ones do not torture. The rest of us have been conquered centuries if not millennia ago by war gods like Jehovah, Allah, Yahweh, and various Hindu and Asian war gods.

Jesus is a great guy.

When times are good, people follow him like the people of Hamelin followed the Pied Piper.

But when times are tough, people line up behind Jesus' dad, the war god Jehovah.

With the Great Guiding Goddess, there's no choice: ya hafta be good *all* of the time.

Think YAJ* isn't pounding your world into the dust behind your back? Getta load outa this:

In October 2008, a group of about sixty American science teachers met to compare notes, at the Center for Science Education at Emory University in Atlanta, and they had some revealing experiences to relate. One teacher reported that students “burst into tears” when told they would be studying evolution. Another teacher described how students repeatedly screamed, “No!” when he began talking about evolution in class.

Go HERE for more.
Those busy little Christian bees have been brainwashing their kiddies for years, now, force-feeding them with trashy stuff about how Darwin's evolution is a lie. Now these poor, dumb kidlets are college-age. And they're infesting our college classrooms, making it next to impossible for our college students to learn science.

Last time the Christians went to town on science, they pushed us into the Dark Ages. Are we going to let them do this to us again?!? (To read more about how, more than anything else, it was Christians who pitched the West into the Dark Ages, go HERE .)

Richard Dawkins penned a great comeback for bumbleheads who think evolution is bunk:

Just as you entrust your travel to a Boeing 747 rather than a magic carpet or a broomstick; just as you take your tumour to the best surgeon available, rather than a shaman or a mundu mugu, so you will find that the scientific version of truth works.


Science gets you to the moon and back. Even if we bend over backwards to concede that scientific truth is no more than that which enables you to pilot your way reliably, safely and predictably around the real universe, it is in exactly this sense that – at the very least – evolution is true.

*YAJ is the god Yahweh/Allah/Jehovah. Many think YAJ is three separate gods, but he's not. He's the god of Abraham. He has multiple personalities.

Why do Christians make their kids memorize only certain Bible verses -- like, for instance, "God so loved the world"?

Other verses are far more to the point about how much God loves the world. For example:

"The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt" (Deut. 28.27).

"Thy carcass shall be meat unto all fowls of the air" (Deut 28.26).

"Him that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat" (1 Kings 16.4).

"He slew all the house of Baasha; he left him not one that pisseth against a wall" (1 Kings 16.11-12).

"Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy people .... And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out" (2 Chronicls 21.14).

And my personal fave:

"Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth" (Psalms 58.6).

Richard today asked three dynamite questions: "What would a Goddess country be like? What do you think the laws and the culture of a modern nation that modeled itself after the Goddess be like? How do you think it would be perceived by the wider world?"

Fab questions, Richard. First let me say I'm not absolutely certain that a Goddess country could survive alone in today's world. That's why I've always stressed that the world needs to move together toward understanding and diluting what I call "starvation culture"* (which affects most of the world today, mostly through starvation-god religions such as the Abrahamaic religions and Hinduism but also through the older, outlawed starvation-god religions in places like China and Russia).

At the same time we're bashing the toxic old starvation gods, we must begin bringing back the old Guiding Goddess** ways of life. What would a Goddess country look like in the world today?

Social Equality. First, there'd be no social inequality. Everyone would be considered as equally valuable as the next person. Just as a healthy mother sees all her kids as equally lovable and valuable, so the people in a Goddess country would see everyone -- despite anyone's IQ, abilities, age, looks, skin color, or what have you.

Financial equality. Second, there'd be no poor people. Everyone would be rich. The Goddess-centered Minoans and Indus Valley people were some of the wealthiest in the world -- but everyone in these civilizations was equally wealthy. For example, in the large Indus Valley cities of 4000 years ago, everyone had the same high-quality stuff -- including indoor bathrooms. Indoor bathrooms for everyone was never again to happen until the 20th century -- when most in the West at least gave up their outhouses and turned to indoor plumbing.

Playful, creative, sensual. Third, compared to the people in most countries today, everyone in a Goddess country would be extremely playful, creative and sensual. There'd be a premium placed on one's abilities in these areas, so instead of considering them sinful or a waste of time, everyone would be totally lauded and praised for how well and often they showed playfulness, creativity and sensuality.

Economics. Fourth, I think a Goddess country would operate on the basis of a gift economy. The person most highly honored would be the person who could give away the most. For a great look at a modern-day gift economy, read Leaving Mother Lake, about the Goddess-centered (until recently at least) Moso of the Chinese-Tibetan borderland. The big problem in any economic system is how do you urge people to produce when we'd all rather sit back with our feet propped up sipping fine wine. In a gift economy, everyone works hard to produce so they can give the most away, and thereby win the praise of all their countrypeople.

Risk-Taking. Fifth, I think the people in a Goddess country would place an extremely high premium on risk-taking, pioneering, knowledge seeking, curiosity of all kinds, and adventure seeking. The Minoans had their bull-leaping and their wide-ranging mariners. Likewise the Indus Valley people had wide-ranging, curious, adventure-seeking mariners. Moso men go on long, adventurous trading journeys.

Government & Politics. The interesting thing about both the Goddess-centered Minoans and Indus Valley peoples was that we can't see any signs of their leaders. The Egyptian pharaohs (who lived at the same time) plastered pictures of themselves everywhere. But not the leaders of the Minoans and the Indus Valley. I wonder if the Minoans and the IVC weren't governed by councils with rotating, elected "moderators" to "lead" each council? In a society in which everyone is equal, why would a council moderator be any more "important" than anyone else? I'm envisioning the kind of direct democracy the North American Iroquois Indians had.

Law enforcement. In a mature Goddess country, there'd be no such thing as a police force. The archaeologist Jane McIntosh says that the up to 80,000-large Indus Valley Civilization cities had no police forces. Apparently there was no need for them.

Laws. I'm not sure a Goddess country would have "laws" as we know them. "Laws" are needed only when cultural morays no longer work. Laws were probably invented by the state (starvation culture).

War. If you don't even have a need for a police force, you're certainly not going to need armies (unless there are still starvation-culture countries left on the planet -- which we all need to work to get rid of ASAP). There's absolutely no indication whatsoever that the quarter-of-a-million-square-mile Indus Valley Civ. had armies or made war anywhere at any time (See Jane McIntosh's A Peaceful Realm).

*For an explanation of Starvation Culture, plug the term into this blog's search box below.

**A "Guiding Goddess" is a goddess who births everyone and everything in the universe; who has no violence-prone, warlike god hanging over her right shoulder; and who isn't abused in any way by any possible gods in Her pantheon. The Moso, Basques and Hopi are three modern societies who, until recently anyway, had such Goddesses. I believe that many societies in the Neolithic and early Bronze Ages revolved around Guiding Goddesses. For more on this, see Studebaker's Switching to Goddess: Humanity's Ticket to the Future.

Dude called Paul Martin says "pleasure" is a Good Thing, but then burbles on about "dissolute" dudes like "Suetonius’s Twelve Caesars ..., Elvis Presley, Errol Flynn, Janis Joplin and the 17th-century libertine Lord Rochester...."



Yikes! Those two words don't sound like pleasure to me! They sound more like icky-dip stuff!

Then this dude tosses out Plato, and how Plato said pleasure is the "greatest incentive to evil."

Whew. I don't know about you, but to me this poor Dude doesn't seem bitten lock, stock and barrel by the idea that pleasure's a Good Thing.

How about you? We know the Goddess loves us to bask in the pleasures She gave us. But how do you know you've ever really felt pleasure? Can any of us who've grown up under the cloud of a daddy/war god ever really feel pleasure?*

Go HERE to read more about Paul Martin's new book, Sex, Drugs and Chocolate: The Science of Pleasure.
*Modern daddy/war gods are Jehovah, Allah, Yahweh, Vishnu and the like. Plato's daddy/war god was Ares. In ancient Rome the Big Daddy was Mars. The old Norse put up with Odin/Wodan. I could go on (and on and on).

Thnx to dog ma for the foto; go HERE to see more of her work.
