So who is to blame for the lousy framework of this world?
Who is to blame for disease, pestilence, tornados, floods and other such “acts of god”?
Who is to blame for “the daily grind” that exploits the lives and effort of the majority of humankind?
Who is to blame for the general physical hardships of each respective gender?
Who is to blame for suffering?
Well, to hear the Bible tell it, you can blame it on the first woman Eve. If she just would have consulted Adam before biting that fruit!
Of course, the Gnostics blame it on the first female deity, whose crime against the cosmos was that she impregnated herself without consulting her male consult as to his thoughts on the subject.
It seems to me that women simply get a bum rap when it comes to the religious tales of humanity.
I tell you what I think though, and it doesn’t require a Philip Marlowe or Sam Spade to crack this case:
I think Eve and Sophia were framed on a bum rap by the patriarchal creator and writer of each of their respective myths!!!
