History of the Goddess
From the Ice Age to the Bible
Before the rise of monotheism, the early Hebrews were pagan and God had a wife, the Mother Goddess. The Bible tells the story of their divorce. Goddess worship promoted equality for women, social justice, spiritual connection to nature and the cycles of life, cannabis, sexual freedom, celebrated transgenders, and practiced abortions. When the Goddess was thrown out of the Hebrew temple by the monotheists, so too were all of these deeply ancient traditions. Many familiar Bible stories and characters are reinterpreted by showing where the Goddess appears and the Bible is reframed by comparing it to the mythologies of neighboring cultures.
