Remember that the Bible you are looking at has been processed by the religious athoritiy (depends as to whom it was by the edition of the bible) and
anti-female sentiment was high both at the time of the original writings and as they were being chewed over by the Churches.
I would be interested in where exactly you found the idea that Jesus turned women into men to enter heaven. I'd love to see the arguments for that
As for the whole "good/evil as man/woman" idea well, no. The sexes were developed as a reproductive system by evolution over the eons. As for the
teachings, it's much as tempogen says, how can something created from a theoretical good man be evil? Besides, both were blind to good and evil
before they ate of the forbidden fruit, so it was that both man and woman were at the get go, innocent, and without sin.
Also, a good amount of the evil in the bible is male-to-male. Jesus was persecuted by men. Cain killed his brother. Most every war in the book is
fought by men. King Herrod was rather evil.
In the New Testament, women are given a very positive role. The Virgin Mary is sacred as the mother of the son of God, and she is seen as pure, good
and everything that one should strive for. The bible's other Mary is also eventally seen in a positive light as the tender of Jesus as he dies. She
first had to forgo her earthly sin but such it was with all of the apostles.
Women are not evil, sorry buddy, but there's not any proof I've seen beyond the flawed interpretations of a very few imperfect people on their
bibles. I'd bet a good bit of cash that they had their own agendas to begin with.
