One, if the above is literal, then where did the likeness of women come from?
Two, if women were so unimportant, then why the need for Jesus to be born to Mary? And because of this holy birth, how come the perception towards women did not change?
Now the next few statements, I must say require a thick skin for those that get offended easily, but this is the reason for discussion.
If women were considered to only be "2nd" made, then why are women more efficiently made for the continuation of life, as men are simply needed to provided needed "help" with the beginning, but afterward are no longer medically, nutritionally, or need to gestate?
Is it so hard to try to understand the need of women, or the understanding that the church has decided that there had to be a hidden agenda about women in general?
Third, if procreation was supposed to be a #1 goal, why would women who are far more complicated biologically be made second?
