Sexism in the Major World Religions

I will begin the discussion on sexism in the Major World Religions with roughly the beginning of sexism and how it is evident in all the Major World Religions. From the ancient past, evidence shows that sexism was near nonexistent than today’s which has become so pervasive and females were highly valued. Currently in the world with the male dominant and centric religions and the many cultures of current and past historic societies, which often seem to devalue, give a lesser status, or limited the value of women. Moreover, before there were any male god myths, there were only or mainly female goddesses and animals or aspects of nature, which were held as spirits or something like deities. Many present day thinkers may find it difficult to comprehend that women could have been valued, be equal to some extent, or even hold a position of power, especially political power in early historic or prehistoric times. Around 6,000 years ago, women were documented as leaders and other positions of political authority starting with Legendary Queen of Ethiopia. According to a scientific study, there is further confirmation which shows that sexual equality is nothing new, even if it is something long forgotten but is still be fought for yesterday, today, and tomorrow. In contemporary hunter-gatherer tribes, evidence shows that men and women tend to have equal influence on important decision-making. Such findings challenge the idea that sexual equality is a recent invention, which suggests that it has been the norm for humans for most of our evolutionary history. At least by 12,000 years ago, female goddesses and not male gods were...

His Foolishness The Dalai Lama

“The planet does not need more ‘successful people’. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds.” ~H.H.The Dalai Lama Sorry, to seem like the atheist/anti-religious asshole but I call bullshit, The Dalai Lama is very successful, so what he states is a clear contradiction. Then in a weird way, I do kind of agree we don’t need him. He had control the Tibetan Government in exile, which receives many donations which pays for his traveling around the world and his security detail. The very successful Dalai Lama has 111 books you can count them: http://www.dalailama.com/biography/books/20 With 111 books to his name, I would say he is very successful, so how can he judge. When you say healers you don’t mean doctor’s right, you mean ”spiritual” healers like faith magic, which is ridiculous and disproven superstitions and how absurd to say we need more storytellers as a way to help the world… How about more education, more science and more critical thinking, rather than ridiculous beliefs in faith magic? But who cares right if the Dalai Lama expresses empty platitudes, he is just an ordinary MAN (Lhamo Dondrub) not a 14 time reincarnated unique anything. Lhamo Dondrub the Dalai Lama’s birth name reminds us he is just a man nothing special and it is absurd to think otherwise, just like all others who are claimed to be holy (I am thinking of you pope). Lhamo Dondrub, when you say lovers, you don’t mean homosexuals right, not that you don’t go beyond the standard view of Buddhism; which has viewed homosexuality as falling under its rules...
