Why does Eve get blamed for everything?

3 years, 10 months ago

Since eating from the tree of knowledge and wisdom, Eve has earned a shameful reputation that is still held against women today. But Cain the first murderer in our society isn’t nearly as infamous. Modern religions and society trace everything that is wrong with the world back to the first taste of knowledge and wisdom rather than the first act of violent bloodshed… Does anyone else see something wrong with this?

Not only has this placed a tremendous burden on women but this attitude is also connected to the use of violence and murder by religious institutions in order to keep knowledge and wisdom away from people so that they could be easier to control.

I dont think of it as a fairy tale but rather a very clever marketing campaign =)

The Romans crucify Jesus Christ who had always been a threat to their empire. Over one hundred years later they decide to put together a bible idolizing him (the exact opposite of what Jesus would have wanted) composed only of the stories that they decided to include. Fast forward to the present and the Roman Catholic Church is the wealthiest organization in the world… Brilliant.

And about the serpent called Lucifer. Lucifer is a name often attributed to Satan but it actually means the morning star which is a reference to Venus. Venus is the goddess of desire and her job is to help you fulfill yourself which could be a good thing or a bad thing. I think eating the apple was the best thing that ever happened to humanity. I don’t think of it as a good thing that anyone would want mankind to be ignorant in a garden for eternity.

And after Eve at the apple she did not “die” as threatened. She had a ton of kids and lived for like a thousand years… which makes me wonder if people who swear by the bible have ever read it.
