The Goddess Auset is the embodiment of those intuitive and instinctive faculties that lay deep within our psyche, governing our ability to care for and nurture others. People in whom this faculty is strongly developed are very protective, caring and nurturing. These qualities, amongst the Kamitians and other Africans, were most desirable in mothers and wives.
In traditional African culture, social role models are based on organized laws that take in and integrate all aspects of man's being. It is an indisputable fact that women, as a whole, have a lower metabolic rate, and a higher para-sympathetic output than men. Among many functions, the para-sympathetic nervous system governs reproduction, gestation, and the trance states. These are the principles upon which women's roles in traditional African culture are defined. Activities that over stimulate the sympathetic (military, hunting, those requiring psychic aggressiveness), or diminish the capacity of the para-sympathetic functions were discouraged in women. The toll to be paid is in the reduction of the quality of childbearing, social peace and harmony, and spiritual inspiration. The latter is to be understood from the intimate relationship between the para-sympathetic and trance. As religion concerns itself with the inner realm of being, its main means, therefore, is the process of trance. It is a state in which an individual's externalizing faculties are "detached from the will," allowing the focus of consciousness to be internalized. Proficiency in this state of internalized consciousness gives the individual full acquaintance with the metaphysical realm. On one hand, communication becomes possible with the two classes of entities dwelling therein-the "living dead" (ancestors), and the spirits or natural intelligences (angels, deities) that administer the phenomena of the world. On the other hand, first hand knowledge of man's metaphysical vehicles (the deities of the tree of life making up his spiritual being), and his true relation with God, the divine laws, and the world is attained. Participation in African and Oriental rituals will reveal that women in general can enter into the states of trance with greater ease than men. This is why societies that utilize trance working in their religious practices have a greater appreciation and respect for women, and protect their capacity for prophetic inspiration by safeguarding them from such activities as soldiering, policing, etc.
Auset as "Mother of all living things," corresponds to the stage of conception of the will to achieve a specific goal. This conception, the uniting of the will (an image of what is to be achieved) to the life-force, (Ra) is achieved through mediumistic trance. It is interesting to note that in the Kamitic language the word "Tut" means "to clothe", Image, "to beget", etc. Out of ignorance, most of the time that people declare the will to achieve a specific goal they are in a state of externalized consciousness (non-emotional state), or verbalize it, and therefore fail to impress the idea upon the life-force. The same name, "Mother of the Gods and the living", is made for Het-Heru, but her function deals with the gestation of the impregnated idea (daydreams in which we are enjoying the objective). In our discussion of Ausar above, we discussed the origin and meaning of Auset's name. We must add that her "special name" as Khenemet Aunkhet, also conceals the fact that she is also to be invoked through the heka "Aung" (Aunk-note that g and k are interchangeable). In this role she shares many of the attributes of the Dravidian White Tara Goddess who combines both the qualities of Ausar and Auset. This name Khenemet Aunkhet which denotes the Water of life and fertility" is also applied to Het-Heru. As such she corresponds to the Dravidian Green Tara. The healing and fertility giving powers of this heka "Aung Tang" has been proven many times in the Auset and Het-Heru shrines of the Ausar Auset Society.

The woman, undoubtedly, has the same rights as the man. If we study carefully the word "Elohim," which figures in the Bible, we will find that it is a feminine noun with a masculine plural ending. The exact translation of such noun is "Gods and Goddesses."
A religion without Goddesses is found amidst materialistic atheism, because if Elohim are Divine Androgynous Beings, so-called Gods and Goddesses, I can say that the result is we would be halfway to atheism.
One cannot remove Goddesses from any religion because within us the Divinity is masculine and feminine at the same time.
We are able to deduce from this as a corollary that the woman has the same rights as the man, and that the Intimate Self-realization of the Being is not possible without the union of the separate parts: man and woman. Both united by means of sex, they constitute an ineffable creature, a Creator-Elohim.
if there were no religion...
...well, for one thing, I bet God would be pissed

Now why would you say that? (Edit:Refering to dbrandt)
When in reality, that man was brave, and risked his own life, something God could never do. He saved that child. If God had a part in it, that man had no choice, and consequently did not have the ability to excercise free will.
You don't see the dealings of God in anything and I do. Would every man in the world be brave enough to run and and rescue someone. the answer is no, some are brave some are not. Of course the man had a choice to risk his own life or not. How about since God knows EVERYTHING before it happens the story goes like this. God knows at 10:45 on the 20th of the month that 7 yr. little Susie is going to be involved in an accident. God says no this is not the time for Susie to die. So 44 years before this God had Robert born into the world. God arranged the circumstances of Roberts life so that he learned to think of others before himself. Maybe Robert lost a younger brother and saw the devistation it caused to his parents. Robert was endowed with courage and grew strong. Fast forward 44 years. Susie has just had her accident and Robert "just happens" to be on his way to work and crosses paths with susie at the time of the accident and saves her. Did God interfere with Roberts free will. Absoltutely not. God merely put Robert and Susie in the same place at the same time Knowing Susie would need help. Did Robert have to risk his own life. No, he had a choice, save her or not. He has free will to choose what to do or not to do.
By the way, you do realize it's not just an "accident" that you post on ATS and have interaction with "these christians"!

I heard a very young child on the news yesterday. He had survived surgery removing a huge cancerous tumor and significant other painful treatments. He even nicknamed his tumor charlie. (Freeky, kinda like that movie that just came out huh) Doctors worked hard and long hours to help him. His parents worked as well. He also worked hard to fight through his treatments. Yet, he said, "It was all in Gods hands" on television. Doesn't anyone see something wrong here? If those doctors did not do a great job and go to school for 8 or 10 years he would have died. If his parents were not there supporting him in so many ways, he would have died. If he didn't fight it, he would have died. I just named what amounts to probably 50 HUMANS responsible for him still being alive today. Charlie is gone because of them.
If you enter god into this, what happens? Thank God for saving him and protecting him? If god had a hand in it, that means that the humans were only living life by instruction from god. They had no choices, because if they did make a choice....it would be theirs and not gods ULESS WE HAVE NO FREE WILL! Furthermore, since it is a christian logic to thank god for all his help on these issues, and to trust in GODS PLAN, wouldn't there be more consequences? Like, thank god for not saving the other young cancer patient in the next hospital room.
