Christian Patriarchy.

Eve ate first from the Tree of Knowledge and became conscious of morality. Why did she eat before Adam? Here she was, the first Goddess, having to decide the most important Laws governing the world. She must decide to follow God or to lead humankind.

Armed with the knowledge to recognise Good and Evil, she recognised that humankind should have a God that was human; not some alien God. The physical universe would be for humankind, and ruled under a human moral code of ethics.

She chose “adam”, a Jewish term for society, to be Adam. The first man and an example to mankind. The Bible states that Adam was to reign over Eve; that she was to be submissive.

The Christian interpretation of the Bible must have been inaccurate. Christianity translated the Jewish scriptures and reversed the original description that described Adam and Eve as being equal.

Is male dominance natural for our species, or has male dominance simply portrayed itself that way? Has Christianity helped to create a patriarchal society where women, like Eve, are expected to be submissive?

Eve made her choice at a time when might made right and physical strength was required because of the conditions at hand. Men seem unable to now get away from that notion and this is shown by the strife and political instability throughout the world.

Is it time for humankind to go to a matriarchal society; both at the political level and at the religious level?

Would you support forced government and religious --- Affirmative action?

They wrote that Eve ate the apple first to keep Women in their place, So Men can control Women by saying it is their fault we left the garden of Eden.
It was just a way to give men the power of control over women.
Thankfully we have grown as a species and one day we will laugh on how people thought.

Thanks and yes.
Unfortunately, time is moving and humanity is not because religions are holding us back.

Foolish is as foolish does.
And only fools would read the myth literally.
