I'm ashamed of my sex for the way they have treated women.
I was wondering - what about the part where Jesus washes Mary's feet. It's a mutual exchange is it not? Equality.
Also, the story of Homo Sap. Sap. Isis - very telling. Perhaps God's only begotten daughter.
Something obviously went wrong. There was worship of the female circa 30,000bc as evidenced by the various 'Venus' figurines (e.g. Venus of Willendorf).
It makes no sense until you consider the whole picture:
Women are the source of new life and were revered as such.
However, the Bible warns of 'fornication' - sex is only bad when it leads to over-population and spread of disease. Has anyone considered why Jews are circumcised? - check AIDS research in Africa - the route of infection is the foreskin. Interesting to think AIDS may have been around for millenia, in fact, some prostitutes in Africa are immune to HIV and you don't get immunity overnight. Also, homosexuals/bi-sexuals are reviled in the Bible because they spread HIV by their sexual practices.
So, my best guess is that the fall had something to do with the above problems of population and disease. Women take the rap. Men begin to take control and for a time all goes well but men get greedy and start to fight and the world ends up as we see it today.
That is the truth of what happened to the best of my knowledge based on the facts and stories we have to hand.
It's long been said that if women were in charge we would all be one big happy family.
Peace and love
