Women and the concept of God have both been fundamental in the progress
of human society, but their histories differ greatly from what we
have all been told.
Present-day archaeological, historical and ethnographic knowledge
indicate that prehistoric woman was not submissive to man, to the
contrary: the communities of our ancestors were dependent on her
triple function as procreator, organizer, and producer. Ever since
we first began to evolve as hominids, up until the agricultural
era, the development of the psycho-social structures and technical
advances that made civilization possible were all the work of women.
And just what
does "God" mean? Some 30,000 years ago, God still didn't
exist, but the concept began to live and to take shape at the same
time that we humans were developing logical-verbal thought; in fact,
during the maturation process in children's use of language, the
basic substratum of the concept of God may still be seen. In any
case, archeological proof shows that the first generating/controlling
"God" was conceived and recognized as a woman for more
than 20,000 years, and that there was no other divinity part from
the Great Goddess until, between the 6th and 3rd millennium A.C.,
when, owing to socioeconomic needs, the concept of a male God appeared.
Surpluses produced in agriculture provoked the defeat of woman and
the Goddess at the hand of males and the male God; and this submission
was imposed on earth as it was in heaven.
research collected in this book provides coherent answers to transcendental
questions, and gives us a new way of looking at woman, man, and
