I was also about to correct you by saying there is no 'e' in sex(e) ... but of course that is a relative point.

There is no god.
There is only a multitude of alien races who deposited us on this planet during slightly different times as a kind of social experiment. It's not working by the way.
You can't prove any of that either.
You're right, but IMO the alien theory is much more plausible.

In the Western countries the evangelical forms of Christianity encourage society to return to the heterosexual nuclear family. But this makes me wonder, where is this nuclear 1950's style family unit in The Bible? If Jesus is our greatest example in everything, then where is his wife? And before that in the Old Testament, where is Mrs God?
Are there vague references anywhere to a female energy in God or influencing Him?
I know the Gnostics and other mystic conspiracies within Christianity have interpretations on this (especially popularized by the Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown).
But mostly marriage advice is taken from OT polygamists, or "celibate" apostles.
So I'm very confused by this contemporary evangelism on gender relations as an ideal family unit, because I really don't see it anywhere.
