In ancient Hebrew “messiah” and “snake” were the same word. Think about it. It is possible that Eve (“the living”) actually lead Adam (“dust”) out of the dark by offering him the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge at the urging of the Savior? Dangerous supposition… It flips all the concepts and prejudices we’re comfortable with. Do not know if this is true or not, but I know I can not be so stupid to exclude any possibility before I think about. I keep wondering why for centuries the church insisted on “believe and do not search”. Whatthey really hiding? And why? The generally accepted version of the New TestamentÂ is a collection of texts selected and censored. The clergy have decided what we should and should not know. Church argued for years that the Earth is the center of the universe (and the only planet), stating vehemently that the earth is flat … And so on.And we have Lillith, the possible prototype of the independent and leading woman, created at the same time and from the same earth as Adam and being his first wife, but she refused to become subservient to him and left him.
Mysterious are the ways, isn’t it? Nobody have a monopoly on “truth”. Arguments are always on each side, but vehemency, it wasn’t,Â is not and it never will be an argument.
And the story of Lillith, the removal of the Apocrypha writings from the “official” version of the New Testament and the removal of most of the references about Mary Magdalene and her importance among the disciples, hiding and acute note of misogyny. Who’s afraid of Eves?
