If you take a copy of the Christian Bible and put it out in the wind and the rain
"If you take a copy of the Christian Bible and put it out in the wind and the rain, soon the paper on which the words are printed will disintegrate and the words will be gone. Our bible IS the wind and the rain."
Interesting statement from an unknown Native American. Most Native American cultures worship both the male and female God/Goddess. The Christians apparently killed the Goddess.
“In the beginning there was no land, no light, only darkness and the vast waters of Outer Ocean where Earth-Maker and Great-Grandfather were afloat in their canoe... Earth-Maker took soft clay and formed the figure of a man and of a woman, then many men and women, which he dried in the sun and into which he breathed life: they were the First People."
At least Eve had an equal inception as Adam. Odd isn't it that nearly all of the ancient 'religions' had goddesses but the major religions today have killed her off.
Many who hold the female God in high esteem tend to use the term 'Mother God' because many believe that Mother God came first in many of the ancient myths and beliefs. The Celts preferred the term, Deae Matres, divine mother goddess. Frau Holle is known from a famous Grimm's fairy tale. In English translation it is usually called Mother Hulda. In Germanic Pre-Christian folklore, Hulda, Holda, Holle and Holla were all names to denote a single Goddess. One who rules the weather: sun, snow and rain.
The Romans, Greeks and Egyptians all worshiped goddesses by not todays Christians, Muslims and Jews. What did a Goddess bring to a religion and, conversely, what is lacking in those three religions because the Goddess is dead?
Do the people today beg for the return of the feminine? and if she did return, how would than enrich the beliefs?
