RE: When God was a Girl
I’ve talked this book up before: Time to be Rational - Darwin, Demons and Sex by Geoff Simons. First chapter covers the idea of female deity worship in antiquity in great detail, with a deluge of references. I'll defiantly be giving your doco a look tonight. Nice post.

If ya haven't read or watched Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth, ya really ought to. I finally understood Catholic's obsession with Mary, when I did.

... and judging by our "boobs" thread, that worship continues to this day.

I was in a discussion group on this a few weeks ago. The research shows that if women ran the world we would solve our differences by having sex. Where the hell did we go wrong?
Any woman for president.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

We humans took the wrong turn in evolution and got a patriarchal machismo society where it is customary to bash the other's head in if they don't agree with you.
The Bonobos, however, took the right turn in evolution and got a matriarchal hippie society where it is customary to literally fuck the other one if they have a different opinion.
Bonobos fuck every other Bonobo they can. All day long. Everyday. Same age Bonobos, same sex Bonobos, old and young Bonobos. All Bonobos! It lubricates their society and prevents aggression and violence.

Wish we humans had that.

Maybe, just maybe, Minoïc Crete had a similar society. All destroyed by the Thera eruption.
