Why Men Created Gods! [1]

A comprehensive account of the negative effects male dominance has had on the human race in every aspect of life, and what could and should be done about it.

MEN CREATED GODS IN THEIR OWN IMAGE AND THEN TOLD EVERYONE WHO DIDN’T BELIEVE IN THE GODS THAT THEY WOULD GO TO HELL!

When the awareness of human beings finally evolved beyond the need for survival, food and sex they began to wonder about life and the world around them—how it all came about.

There was something in the evolving human mind that led them to assume that there must be unseen supernatural spirits or gods who created the human race and the world around them.

This longing for answers was obviously a common trait in the evolution of the human species as virtually all if not all groups of people—no matter how few they were or how isolated they were from each other—came up with a roster of spirit-gods to explain everything in their world—the sun, the weather, other life forms and so on.

Virtually all of these spirit-gods were created by men who gave the principal ones masculine traits, became their exclusive spokesmen and acted as their agents in establishing codes of conduct for their particular societies.

A primary theme in the doctrines established by the main surrogate male gods was the inherent superiority of males over females and the tenet that females were created to serve males. This alone was enough to prevent human beings from achieving their potential, but there were other fundamental elements in the male mindset that were equally damaging to the human species and the cultures that individual human groups created.

Male discrimination against females did not begin as a religious thing. It evolved naturally from the genetic programming of males, so when men created gods the gods naturally consigned women to an inferior status.

Males in virtually all species are genetically designed to be sexually aggressive, to impregnate as many females as possible and to take by force and keep exclusive sexual rights to as many females as possible.

This instinctive behavior in the earliest human males was buttressed by the fact that they recognized that females are inherently more sexually potent than males.

Females can engage in sex dozens of times a day whether they really want to or not because they don’t have to get a hard-on to do it and are not as exhausted as males are by the sexual climax—if they have one.

Males on the other hand, more often than not, achieve sexual climaxes in a matter of minutes because in earlier times engaging in sex left them susceptible to attack by competing males so they had to do it quickly.

Furthermore, most males, including younger ones, cannot repeat the sex act more than two or three times in rapid succession and still enjoy it. It not only loses its power to pleasure, it becomes painful.

And it was this sexual reality that resulted in early males doing everything in their power—physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually—to control women; to make them subservient not only sexually but in all other aspects of life.

While some primate species, like monkeys, can perform sexually several times a day day-after-day, even the most potent human male is satiated after three or four times at most. When a human male achieves a sexual climax it releases the sexual energy that has built up over a period of time, and it takes time for this energy to rebuild.

By the time the average male is in his late 30s this buildup of sexual energy generally requires two or three if not more days, during which his interest in sex is emotional instead of a physical need.

The hype that manufacturers use to sell drugs like Viagra—which artificially create erections of the male organ for an hour or more with the promise that men can have sexual intercourse several times a day day-after-day if so desired—is both misleading and dangerous.

The billion-dollar-a-year success of Viagra naturally inspired copycats—the hype of one of them, called Aspire 36 Plus, described as a fast-acting liquid, says that in addition to improving arousal it “enhances the entire experience from beginning to toe-curling end giving you both uninhibited satisfaction yet you’ll still be ready for round two, three or four!!!”  The ads go on to say that it keeps on working, again and again, “reducing recovery time for your encore performance!”

Males who have a hard-on for more than an hour or so without having a climax quickly discover that it is extremely uncomfortable and sometimes very painful if the sexual stimulation from kissing or other activity that doesn’t result in a climax is intense and prolonged. Teenage boys who neck with girls for long periods without going all the way find this out soon enough.

Having a hard-on for several hours—as some of the sex drug makers admit—becomes a medical problem that requires the intervention of a doctor who can ad-minister [as you would expect!] another drug to counteract the sex drug.

In other words, it is not natural or actually possible for human males to become as sexually potent as females because nature was not and still is not that equitable. The make-up of male and female sexuality was designed to ensure that life goes on despite all of the dangers it presented—not to make males and females sexual equals.

Subsequent religious taboos, customs and laws designed to control and limit the sexual behavior of both males and females were to have incredible un-intentional results.

Generally, the only people who were exempt from these restrictions—or simply chose to ignore them—were the men in charge. Both lay and religious leaders have historically broken the laws they enacted and required common people to obey.

The cultural problems afflicting the present-day world at large are therefore not simple or isolated. Their partial or complete failures include all of the organizations that are associated with civilization—economic, educational, political, and social.

There are still some shining lights in American and other cultures but broadly speaking the various facets of the cultures are a mishmash of conflicting principles, faulty planning, incompetent execution and a number of cancerous elements that represent a serious threat to humanity and to the Earth.

As British philosopher Aldous Huxley once observed: “At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice, and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity: idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political idols.”

Before dealing with male-created gods and the male-made religions they spawned it is necessary to address the sexuality of homo sapiens because sex is one of the three key foundations of human behavior. And unfortunately for humanity, the preprogrammed sexual nature of males has played the key role in all cultures created since the appearance of human beings.

The Misunderstanding & Misuse of Male Sexuality! [2]

This book identifies and describes the built-in characteristics of human males that have plagued mankind since Day One, and why man-made God-based religions have failed to curb male behavior. It is available from Amazon.com in both printed and ebook formats.

MALE GONADS ALWAYS IN THE ON POSITION!

What nature obviously did not foresee or plan for was the possibility that male members of the human species would not always have ready access to females for sexual purposes. Males were designed with their gonads always in the “on” position, producing semen and sexual energy 24 hours a day.

The problem with this is that when males are pre-vented—for whatever reason—from expelling all of the sexual energy that builds up in their gonads and prostate glands the pressure from the unused energy builds up and up, and fairly early in the process begins to affect how males think and act.

One of the most unheralded results of this sexual energy buildup is the relationship between violence and unused male sexual energy. Studies by professionals have shown that the more sexual energy that builds up in males the more likely they are to engage in behavior that includes every form of violence known.

This behavior ranges from verbal and physical abuse of children, girl friends and wives to fighting among themselves, single and mass murders, and wars in which hundreds to millions are maimed and killed.

Just one aspect of the misunderstanding and misuse of human sexuality in ancient as well as modern times is the incarceration of huge numbers of men in prisons where they do not have access to normal sexual release with females. There are also prisons for females who have no access to male sexual partners but their numbers are miniscule compared to males.

In many countries, including the U.S., religious taboos have traditionally prevented prison inmates from having access to partners of the opposite sex. But there are some exceptions.

Mexico, often touted as a strict Catholic country, allows many of its prison inmates to have conjugal visits from wives and girl friends, particularly those who can afford to pay their jailors a fee for the privilege.

This situation exists in Mexico because like other typical Hispanic-influenced Catholic countries most of the men pay no attention to the dictates of the Church [except perhaps on Sundays and special holidays]—looking at religious beliefs and real life as separate worlds. There is even a special term for this division of real life and religious life in the Catholic Philippines.

The Incredible Masturbation Taboos

The role of the Christian Church in attempting to control the sexual behavior of males has included taboos against masturbation. Until recent times the Church taught that achieving sexual release through masturbation was a sin against God. There is scripture in the Bible that says it is better for males to leave their seed in the bellies of whores than cast it to the wind.

And until modern times some preachers and priests advised mothers of young boys to tie their hands be-hind their backs at night so they couldn’t masturbate while in bed. [It is normal for males to get hard-on’s from four to a dozen times every 24 hours, including while asleep, which often wakes them up as they get older.]

As late as the 19th century some Christian mothers were still telling their young sons that masturbating would make them go insane—and still today young males who masturbate do it furtively in order not to be caught and shamed by their parents or other adults.  Masturbating by girls has been even more taboo.

Thanks to the religious position on masturbation, the female need and urge to masturbate has given rise to a large industry that manufactures and sells dildos and other masturbation tools for women.

Another Hard-On Dilemma!

Healthy males get hard-on’s from four to eight or more times every 24-hour period, starting when they are still in the womb and continuing until they are in their 70s, 80s or 90s if they live that long.

In advanced countries today men are living into their 70s and 80s and beyond, and during these long life-spans they are having far more erections per day and night than was normal for males in the past because there is more overt sexual stimulation.

This means the average male gets from 2,000 to 3,000 hard-on’s per year, of which less than 10 percent are used. You can image what kind of physical and emotional stress this causes.

In addition to this natural phenomena, by the time boys in the United States and some other countries are in their mid-teens they have advanced to necking with girl friends, during which they typically have full, hard, unrelieved erections for as long as an hour or more. This results in significantly increasing the build-up of stress in their prostate glands and gonads—often to the point that it is extremely painful.

Furthermore, the amount of sexual titillation that present-day males of all ages are exposed to on television, in magazines, movies, etc., is incredible, and dramatically increases the incidence of regular, daily sexual stress that is not relieved.

If you assume that a male has a partial or complete erection only five times every 24-hour period and lives to be 60 years old that amounts to a total of 109,500 erections. You can assume that these erections were not “used” more than about 100 times a year, for a total of 6,000 during the 60-year period. This leaves males with well over 100,000 unrelieved sexual arousals over a period of six decades.

The negative impact this accumulation of stressed-out periods has on the prostate gland has to be horrific—and may be the primary cause of the enlargement of the prostate gland…and may also be associated with the incidence of prostate cancer.

For every year beyond 60  that you add to the life-span of men you have at least an additional 1,800-plus erections—and despite old tales you might have heard,  normal, healthy men in their 70s and 80s do get hard-on’s, and suffer when they are not used.

It’s Not a Laughing Matter!

Those who are tempted to laugh this problem off as something that is not really serious would, again, be well advised to consider that unrelieved sexual stress among males is one of the primary sources of all of the male-generated violence that has plagued mankind from the beginning.

The longer normal, healthy males go without re-leasing the natural buildup of sexual energy the more apt they are to engage in some kind of violence—from abusing their wives and children to taking their frustrations out on other members of society—or engaging in other kinds of destructive behavior.

If you make up a list of all of the cruel, destructive, evil, inhumane, savage and stupid things that have happened to human beings—and are, of course, still happening today—at least ninety-five percent of the people responsible for these things have been and are males.

One of the primary reasons for this male mayhem can be traced to the position taken by the three largest and most powerful religious cults [Judaism, Christianity and Islam], which  resulted in males having to repress their natural sexual desires and use up their sexual energy in other ways that were often violent.

The fact that this religious rationale incorporated the concept that females are inferior to males made life even more onerous and destructive for humanity in general.

In simple terms, when a man gets hard on the bot-tom he gets soft on the top—meaning he cannot think in clear, rational terms and is likely to do irrational things when in a state of sexual arousal.

In the past the only option generally open to young males to expel their sexual energy was masturbation, which was generally effective when early teenage boys were concerned. But masturbation is not the natural solution for adult men. It relieves the physical stress somewhat but not all of the mental/emotional stress—and the relief is short-lived.

Male-dominated religious teachings combined with man-made legal and social sanctions designed to keep women from expending their unused sex energy has caused as much if not more damage to the mental and physical well-being of females.

The Misunderstanding & Misuse of Female Sexuality! [3]

A FALL-OUT FROM THE MALE DOMINANCE FACTOR!

Until recent times virtually all societies ignored the fact that women also have powerful sexual urges and needs—an incredible arrogance perpetrated by males. The emotional and physical suffering this has caused and continues to cause females is incalculable.

Over the millennia the various ailments females suffered from being denied the opportunity to fulfill their sexual needs were invariably linked by males to the overall nature of females—not sexual deprivation. Some men, however, consciously or subconsciously, apparently realized that there was a sexual element in the “disruptive” behavior of females, and their often stated solution was that they needed a “good screw.”

However, this insight did not lead to any lessening of the male-created taboos that kept females from being able to use up their sexual energy

The Role of the Catholic Church

Some of the measures promoted or condoned by the Catholic Church during the so-called Middle Ages to control female sexual behavior are hardly believable today.

Beginning in the 11th century, European church and lay leaders launched a series of religious-inspired military campaigns against Middle East countries in an attempt to free Jerusalem and the other “Holy Cities” from their Moslem occupiers.  These so-called “Crusades” against Islamic countries continued off and on for approximately three hundred years.

During this incredibly long period of Pope-backed wars some men had their wives outfitted with “chastity belts”—iron thong-like devices that were locked in place to prevent the women from being able to have sexual intercourse with other males while the husbands were away doing their religious duty.

Many of these lockable iron “chastity belts” were made in Italy, where their manufacture and use was promoted by the Catholic Church.  [Even farther out than this device was an older practice among ancient slave holders to have the foreskin of the penises of their adult male slaves sewn tight, leaving only a tiny hole for urination, to discourage them from engaging in sexual intercourse with any woman…another extreme to which men have gone in the past to control sexual behavior.]

Ironically, most of the glory-hungry knights who left Europe in their zeal to take the “Holy Land” away from Moslems never returned home. Some 20 percent of them were killed in battle, and some 60 or 70 percent of them died from the plague and other diseases.  History also notes, not surprisingly, that many women managed to get around the iron chastity belts by one means or another, including having a second key made by willing locksmiths.

According to a number of totally unreliable sources on the Internet some form of chastity belts continued to be used in Europe well after the end of the Crusades, and, in fact, into modern times. Such is the terrible hold that religious beliefs have on both men and women.

However, given the male psyche it is not surprising that historically males have gone to inhuman lengths to prevent females from exercising their full sexuality because it is far stronger than that of males.

A fictionalized account of how the misunderstanding and misuse of human sexuality leads to the formation of a chain of sex clinics [that provide “the real thing”] and become the largest enterprise in the world, leading to the election of the first female American president – with a startling end!

Why Women are Superior to Men! [4]

THE BIBLE HAS IT WRONG!

According to human biology all human beings begin as females, with some of the embryos later developing into males. This is the first sign that “God!” intended for females to be more important than males. In any event, it puts the kibosh on the Adam and Eve fable that God first created a man then took a rib out of the poor fellow and created a woman.

Nature’s plan also made sure that females are sexually superior to males. As noted, females can engage in sex dozens of times a day if they want to—or don’t want to—while even the most virile male peters out after three or four times at the most and has to wait for hours to days before he is able to produce more semen and sexual energy, get it up and in again, and actually enjoy the act.

And finally, the genetic factor that nails the superiority of the female sex is when women are free to think and behave in a way that is natural for them they are generally more practical, more logical, more rational, and more humane than males—all factors that are essential parts of the make-up of females because they are responsible for the actual creation and nurturing of human life.

In the U.S. and a few other countries the religious concept of female inferiority lost some ground during the 20th century, but even in these countries women are still regarded as and generally treated as inferior to men.

Humanity will continue to be plagued by ignorance, stupidity and violence as long as religious doctrines continue to preach and enforce the superiority of men and the inferiority of women, and prevent women from bringing their innate sense of compassion, cooperation and goodwill to the world at large.

Obviously, the sexual nature of males and the sex-based arrogance that led them to automatically assume that they were superior to females was to have results that went far beyond the oppression of females.

This arrogance and the cultural systems it created continue to plague mankind, and despite the examples of women who have ascended to power in the business and political worlds the underlying faults and failures of the religious-inspired syndrome remain in control in most societies.

The incredible power that Catholicism has traditionally had over the lives of millions of people began to weaken in the mid-1900s, primarily as a result of man-made wars and male-invented technology—the wars forcing males to free women from their homes and farms to work in factories while the men were away fighting and dying; and the new technology, particularly automobiles, making it possible for wo-men to exercise a degree of freedom to go places on their own that they had never had before.

However, the power of the Islamic religionto subjugate and oppress Moslem women did not begin to wane significantly until the so-called Arab Spring that started in 2011 when revolutions began in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and elsewhere against their despotic religious-based governments—but this movement has a long way to go to free females from the shackles of Islam.

THE FEMALE DOCTRINES OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAVE HAD THEIR DAY!

The oppression of females by the Catholic Church began to take a hit with the appearance of The PILL in 1960 but it was to be a series of scandals in the late 1900s that finally began to significantly erode the power of the Church over the lives of women.

The 20th Century Sex Scandals

The greatest scandal to hit the Catholic Church at the end of the 20th century was the widespread public disclosure of sexual activity by homosexual and pedophile priests—a practice that had been going on since day one because it was condoned by those in these categories who had risen to high positions in the hierarchy of Church and was also kept quiet by other high-placed members because they didn’t want to harm the Church image.

This ongoing situation did not become publicly known nationally or internationally until the advent of news media that was both irreverent and more driven by readership and profit motives. The first reactions of the Catholic Church on the highest level were disingenuous to say the least, but as more and more incidents were revealed and lawsuits mounted, the Church finally admitted the problem and said it would take steps to stop it.

There is also growing lay and some priestly opposition to the Catholic Church doctrine of requiring priests to remain celibate—in part, no doubt, because of the 20th century sex scandals involving priests.

The dogma that abstaining from sexual intercourse with members of the opposite sex results in males and females remaining pure, saintly and god-like, goes back several thousand years. It was not until the 4th century A.D. that it first cropped up in the so-called Western Church. And it was not until the mid-11th century that Pope Gregory VII issued a decree forbidding priests from marrying. [Another reason for this was that when married priests had male children any rights they had to Church-owned land went to the eldest son, diluting the power of the Church—and that had become a serious sore point for the Pope.]

The decree prohibiting priests from marrying or engaged in sex with females was reaffirmed by Popes in the 12th century and again in the 16th century. Despite growing opposition to this ancient practice the decree was again reaffirmed in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.

The ancient idea that celibacy contributes to purity in both a physical and divine sense is, of course, absolute nonsense. What it does do is subject the individual to enormous stress that manifests itself in a variety of ways that have long been obvious but have been ignored by the Church hierarchy.

Religions and American Women

American females have also been among those who were deliberately kept ignorant of their own sexual nature as well as that of males until modern times.

In this day and age it is absolutely incredible to admit that just a few generations ago American women were subject to being tied to stakes and burned alive by men who accused them of being witches when they exhibited “unnatural” behavior—generally the result of sex-related frustrations.

It was not until well into the 20th century that a few women began to rebel against the sexual restraints and discrimination females were forced to endure, by writing and speaking and eventually creating a movement that came to be known as “Women’s Lib.”

The partial success of this movement was a direct out-growth of the new entertainment and news media industries jumping on the Women’s Lib bandwagon—not so much because they had become advocates but because of prurient interest in the stories and the fact that they grabbed attention and increased sales profits.

But Women’s Lib has made only a small dent in the behavior of males driven by unused sexual energy and a mindset that is still in an ancient self-interest mode based on physical strength, size and an “in-charge” complex that often ignores reality.

Of course, there are millions of civilized and educated men who have risen above this ancient male programming, and their influence is growing but it is far from the point that it can change the course of the institutions that control the bulk of humanity.

As is so obvious it goes without saying that even the most enlightened societies today remain in the grips of ancient patterns of thought and behavior that are patently irrational and destructive not only to human beings but to the Earth and all of its other life forms.

But it also goes without saying that for the first time in human history the knowledge that is necessary to change this doomsday scenario is at hand and the desire for change is growing. The question is when will it really begin to make significant inroads on the power structures that are now in charge.

And the crux of this power structure is bound up in one-god religions—in fact, the biggest tragedy to be-fall mankind was the creation of the first one-god religion between three and four thousand years ago—a time-frame which reveals clearly that most of its most crucial dogma are false, since the history of mankind is measured in hundreds of thousands of years and that of other life forms in millions of years.

Why the Jews Created God! [6]

ORIGIN OF THE ONE-GOD CONCEPT!

From ancient to virtually modern times all societies had a variety of gods, some numbering in the dozens. While some of the gods had to do with the origin of life, others were the gods of such natural phenomena as the wind, the oceans and mountains.

Jews Create Yahweh/God

Between three and four thousand years ago the religious leaders of the Israelites [Hebrews], a group of Semite tribes who lived in the area of what is now modern Israel, came up with the idea that just one all-powerful god would be far better than many gods, so they decided to worship only one god, whom they referred to as Yahweh. As time passed the Hebrews began to claim that Yahweh was the only God and that all who did not believe in and worship him were doomed to go to Hell when they died. Their religion came to be known as Judaism [from the name of one of the Israelite tribes], and its members came to be known as Jews.

The creators of Yahweh [God] knew absolutely nothing about the Earth or world at large, including the many civilizations around the globe and the billions of galaxies and trillions of stars [suns] that make up the universe. So they had no problem in attributing all things in life and nature to their new God, including he belief that creation occurred only a few thousand years earlier—which was as far back as the Jewish people could trace their ancestry.

The Jesus Christ Add-On

Several centuries after the concept of one god became well established in Jewish culture the descendants of the creators of Yahweh took bits and pieces from many other religions—including the concept of virgin birth—and came up with the idea that more people would believe in and worship their God if he sent them a son as his personal go-between, giving birth to the story of Mary and her son who later became known as Jesus Christ the Savior of mankind. [The word “Christ” comes from the Greek term referring to the oil with which the Jews bathed the feet of those they regarded as holy.]

The Rise of Christianity

Over the next few hundred years the one-God cult of the Jews morphed into the theological and social cult that came to be known as Christianity, which eventually was split into Catholicism, Protestantism and a mish-mash of other sects, including Mormonism, by males who did not accept all of the teachings of the Catholic Church and had their own ideas of God’s will and the proper behavior of men and women.

While the original aim of Christianity—whose founding is often credited to the Jewish tribal leader Abraham—was to assert and maintain human worth and dignity it was soon subverted into a tribal identity and competed with other faiths for social and political power. Thus the numerous wars waged in the name of the Christianity and its offshoots over the millennia and down to modern times.

Still today most Christian sects, especially Catholicism, are basically tribal religions that serve the interests of their male founders and administrators at the expense of females and competing religions.

There is no more stark evidence of the inhumanity of a bigoted god-based religion as the invasion and conquering of the New World in the 1500s by Spanish conquistadors who believed that their Catholic religious beliefs took precedence over the cultures and lives of the millions of people who lived on the Caribbean Islands and the North and South American continents—a phenomenon that was later repeated by English and other European immigrants who began their campaigns to conquer and control—or eradicate—the Native American population in the 1600s.

God’s Terrible Swift Sword

In America’s Civil War [1861-1865] in which hundreds of thousands of young men were killed and hundreds of thousands of others were horribly mutilated both the North and South sides publicly and loudly proclaimed that God was on their side and that they were doing God’s work. Southerners justified their keeping of black human beings as slaves as in keeping with the will of God. Northerners justified their going to war as a fight against evil and sang about “God’s terrible swift sword” helping them vanquish the Southern armies.

The military campaigns by the United States government against Native Americans, whom it regarded as pagan savages with few if any rights, did not end until the 1880s. It was not until 1924 that Native Americans, whose ancestors had lived here for thousands of years, were “granted” citizenship by the government that had conspired in killing most of them and depriving the survivors of their traditional homelands.

What a travesty, and what an indictment against the religious beliefs and practices of early European-Americans.

The Power of the God Cult

The power of the cult of Christianity and its offshoots to seduce and hold the minds of the most educated men and women in those ancient times was to shape the future of their followers in ways that could not have been intended—causing, death, destruction and incredible suffering on a massive scale.

Since creation of Yahweh/God the knowledge that human beings have learned about the universe, its origin and how it works, is off the scale, and yet millions of educated people continue to profess belief in the God-concept taught by Judaism, Christianity, Islam and all of their offshoots, and to worship a God who represents all of the elements in the nature of human males, the good and the bad—a form of willful stupidity that is pathological to the extreme.

The only thing more incredible than this ongoing pathological reverence for an imaginary God are the rationales that professed believers in Judaism, Christianity and Islam use to convince themselves and others that there is a God who created everything some six thousand year ago and is responsible for everything, despite the obvious evidence to the contrary.

Historically, Jews, Christians and Moslems have slaughtered each other while shouting that God is on their side. When tragic things occur they say it is God’s will, while continuing to preach that God is the ultimate guardian and protector of human beings and will save people from evil and disaster if they believe in him and pray to him—or his “son,” the young Jew Jesus.

What is now just as incredible is that many people know that belief in a benign God creator and protector is absolute nonsense but most of them—especially politicians—are afraid to publicly admit it.

What was weirdly amusing at the turn of the 21st century was that one of the few individuals with a public pulpit who was not afraid to speak the truth about the God fable was a comedian: Bill Maher, the host of Real Time on HBO. Bill repeatedly said the God story was all just nonsense.

Promoting and Selling God

Since around 500 A.D. the God fable has become a major industry, and today its various constituents employ several million people. These include managers of institutions like the Catholic Church, Jewish synagogues and Islamic mosques along with a large number of individuals who use the airwaves to con people into sending them money.

Of course, Jewish, Christian and Islamic sects and their hundreds of thousands of churches provide some material support for many of members, but their use of the God fable to attract and hold these members is in-defensible.

In addition to perpetrating a false faith these institutions provide people with a way of avoiding personal responsibility for their behavior. The fact that these faiths allow their members to slaughter each other in the name of and for their God is a form of insanity.

The babble of many of the religion-based con men and con women on radio and television is so infantile, so stupid, so obviously put-on, that only people who have been programmed to the moronic level could believe what they say and send them money.

The efforts of obviously well-educated members of the Catholic Church and similar organizations to af-firm the existence of a Creator-God are marvelous demonstrations of their skill with words in “proving” something for which there is absolutely no evidence—and incredibly vast amounts of evidence to the contrary.

What is most disturbing and the most dangerous for humanity is that equally well-educated and knowledgeable people in positions of great power and influence cop-out by agreeing with or pretending to agree with the God people.

By this time it should be obvious to all that the most destructive element in God-based moralities is the fact that they are male-oriented and male-dominated.

One of the stories in this book is about a legend that Jesus Christ and his brother Isukiri spent his “Missing Years” [from the age of 12 until 32 or 33] in Japan, and that after returning to Jordan it was his brother who was crucified…and that Jesus escaped back to Japan, married, had children and died there. His tomb was in the village of Herai,..and there is other evidence! Another story describes the annual fertility festivals that have been popular in Japan for over a thousand years. The cover of the book depicts a scene from one of these festivals. It is available from Amazon.com

Fall-Out of the Primitive Male Mind! [8]

RELIGIOUS SUPPRESSION OF FEMALE SEXUALITY!Throughout the history of Jewish, Christian, Islamic and other male-controlled societies virtually all women have been forced to suppress their natural sexuality to a degree which left them frustrated and subject to a variety of physical and mental ailments.

Remarkably, more than 2,000 years ago Hippocrates came up with the word “hysteria” to describe these ailments, but he didn’t understand that they were caused by pent-up unused sexual energy.

Just as remarkable—given the ongoing ignorance of males and the influence of religions—in the 1880s an American doctor came up with the idea of using an electric vibrator as a medical treatment for women suffering from “female hysteria”—having somehow discovered that when the genitals of women suffering from “hysteria” were stimulated to orgasm the symptoms of the malady disappeared.

Even after the doctors discovered that orgasms eliminated this ancient “disease” neither they nor their patients realized that the cathartic release following genital stimulation had anything whatsoever to do with lack of sufficient sexual activity. They called it “paroxysm.”

Despite the “sexual emancipation” of women that began in the United States in the early 20th century, picked up speed in the 1950s, and now often appears to be moving at the speed of light, most American women still today are constrained in their sexual behavior, repressing, ignoring or denying their sexuality to a significant degree.

With the “power of God” in their hands, male religious leaders long ago succeeded in brainwashing most women to not only accept the sexual restrictions placed on their behavior, but to also become firm believers in the righteousness of the laws—written and unwritten—that controlled their lives.

The Pope vs. Women

Over the centuries one of the most irrational and inhuman policies of the Catholic Church has been its prohibition of any form of artificial contraception, labeling it a grave sin against the will of God.

But finally, in an interview with a German journalist in 2010, Pope Benedict made the following deliberately convoluted comment: “There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility.”

This comment appears in a book entitled Light of the World: The Pope, the Church and the Signs of the Times, by Peter Seewald, released in November 2010. The Pope made the above comment when the journalist asked him if it wasn’t “madness” for the Vatican to forbid a high-risk population from using condoms.

The Pope added that the Vatican does not regard the use of condoms by male prostitutes as a real or moral solution, and followed this with a weak-kneed comment that “it might be a first step in a movement toward a different way, a more human way, of living sexuality.”

When asked about the Pope’s unprecedented comments Catholic religious authorities said it was obviously a change in the ideology of the Vatican…a situation that once again exposed the irrationality and inhumanity of the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church.

One of the things that is forcing the Catholic Church to change its ways to avoid disappearing into the dustbins of history is the fact that thousands of priests have left and are leaving the Church in order to get married.

Fall-Out of the Primitive Male Mind

The gene-based need for males to dominate all areas of human endeavor resulted in selfish interests, tribalism, territorialism and discrimination against race, skin color and other religious beliefs becoming male characteristics.

Still today in many males these elements, separately or combined, override logic, objectivity and rationality in both subtle and obvious ways, resulting in behavior that is negative instead of positive, disruptive instead of harmonizing and destructive instead of constructive.

Examples of irrational, illogical and harmful behavior are so deeply ingrained in the minds of many males that they have become institutionalized and ritualized in customs and laws and have persisted since the dawn of human history…because the essential mindset of males has not changed and people with invested interests in the customs and laws have made sure that they continue to survive.

Humanity will continue to be plagued by ignorance, stupidity and violence as long as religious doctrines continue to preach and enforce the superiority of men and the inferiority of women, and prevent women from bringing their innate sense of compassion, cooperation and goodwill to the world at large.

Obviously, the sexual nature of males and the sex-based arrogance that led them to automatically assume that they were superior to females was to have results that went far beyond the oppression of females.

This arrogance and the cultural systems it created continue to plague mankind, and despite the examples of women who have ascended to power in the business and political worlds the underlying faults and failures of the religious-empowered syndrome remains in control in most societies.

The Coming Female Revolution

Wise men and women have known for millennia that it is immoral and inhuman to treat women as the property of males, but it was not until the 19th century that women began to make their voices heard—and often went to jail for it.

It is absolutely incredible that male-created and dominated religious dogma prevented American women from having the right to vote until August 26, 1920, and still today many women around the world have far fewer political and social rights than men…all because of the hold that gender-based religions still have on the minds of people.

Women with few rights or virtually no rights at all have traditionally been brainwashed to accept the superiority of males and to be the most diligent followers of the very religions that have made them inferior creatures since day one.

But imagine what would happen if the vast majority of female Catholics, Christians, Jews and Muslims simply stopped going to and supporting the male-run churches, synagogues and mosques. Without female support, most of these institutions could not survive.
