Question: Nothing is said in the first 5 sessions about when humans began to realize that men played a part in the continuance of the species and the impact that might have had on a change from a Goddess-centered spirituality to a God-centered religion. It seems that I read many years ago that humans began to understand procreation after some animals were domesticated and humans observed their copulation with faster results than say larger animals. It kind of sounds like women were revered for their procreation, were cooperative rather than violent, and were accepting of men, but when men saw their part in procreation, they wanted power over/domination – stick it to women?/sorry. At some point men were considered the creators and woman only the receptacle for the seed which grew into a baby. Later it was realized that it took both.
This question has been growing for me as I read through the materials and if someone brings it up, I’m not sure how to respond except that I’m looking into it.
Thank you in advance for your thoughts and insights.
