This world that we inherited from men that gave themselves the power to be the only ones to think-do-undo-create-destroy is already in shreds.
Gail, we are in times of change. Nothing stop us from writing beautiful poetry, amazing inspirational texts, to write and shape history, to change the political arena.We all now have the power to leave our print.
The veil of ignorance is falling so rapidly that men can’t hold it anymore. Because was ignorance, plane and simple ignorance what made our world to be the way we find it now.
And I don’t doubt also that jealousy of men toward women’s ability to create. Jealousy that blind them and send to trap women in their life of servitude, abusing their physical power they subdued women to live under their domain.
But I like say, it’s no more. We have the power of the pen reigning freely. We have the power of our thoughts that refuse to be restrained.
Not that other women in past did not attempted it, we saw what happened of them. They were Burn at the stake. They were discredited (Maria Magdalene) They were decapitated, they were put in solitary confinement in towers.
But no more!, knowledge is free again, and so we are

“You shall bear children in intense pain and suffering; yet even so, you shall welcome your husband’s affections, and he shall be your master.” Genesis 3:16

Reading this versicle from Genesis, allows my mind to explore other possibilities.
To analyze the other possibilities we have to read Genesis 1:28 -And God blessed them and told them, “Multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; you are masters of the fish and birds and all the animals”.
As I read Genesis the idea strike me that, maybe.. just maybe…the story is not complete, because if God commanded Adam and Eve to multiply, this off course before they ate the “forbidden Fruit”, they did not did so. So, in Chapter 5:1 of Genesis, “Here are SOME of the descendants of Adam, the men who was like GOD from the day of his creation.
Adam was 130 years old when Seth was born.
Seth born after Cain and Abel, meaning that, when Adam and Eve, disobeyed God, let me say again Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate from the Forbidden Fruit, which was not other but having sex.The forbidden fruit is sex. Before Adam and Eve had any sex, Adam was “like God from the day of his creation”, they could have created, “multiply” the earth without sex.
But by having sex they lost the powers of the Gods, now to multiply they were cursed to have sex and to bear the child with pain. Adam lost his God Like power having to having sex since that day on to multiply, but as a curse “you shall bear children in intense pain and suffering”.
And again why the curse was not put on Adam? mmmm interesting, that Adam being as God, could not resist the beautiful offering of Eve?..It is strange since the beginning that God was misogynistic and showed clearly in his curse.
Now going back again to the other possibilities, When in Genesis 1;28 God commanded them to “multiply”, or….they disobeyed and did not multiply when they were blessed, or the story is incomplete and the sons and daughter that were bear without pain were mistakenly forgotten to mention in Genesis.
As I read the subsequent lines of Genesis I realize that Adam and Eve, indeed keep having sex after they were expelled from paradise, and before when Cain and Abel born in the firs 130 years, before falling of paradise

But then we have the Hebrew version of Can “Adam knew his wife Eve intimately, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain. She said, “I have had a male child with the LORD’s help”, again another mmmmm. So according to the oldest text, Cain was not son of Adam, but son of the Lord, The God himself who created Adam in the first place, the God that made Adam “like God”, with the ability to create. So why, does God takes away the powers and send them out to wander and suffer the mundane life of a human. All because Adam has sex with Eve?..Eve that bear Cain the son of God?…
I always wonder why, Catholic Church will baptize the children. “To clean the original sin”, The original sin which was to born out of a sex relation, the fruit of s sin- eating the forbidden fruit- and not from the original master piece that God did, making a living specie out of ground.
The story makes more sense, instead of the Apple, “One apple a day keeps the doctor away”.
the interpretations and symbolism given to the stories to fit a boxed mind it is extraordinarily naive for today standards Thought.
The story get more darker and darker, but I don’t want to digress from my original thought. Which was…..
History is His Story…So Gail, we need to write the real story, not his-story, not her-story, not their-story, but the Story of humanity as a whole, from everyone point of view included, with best interest in mind of all of us, the humans on earth.
And sorry, Human word, using the man which mean ground, and Humus meaning Earth.
So Human was a name given to the specie that was formed in Earth from ground…well off course all these according to interpretation of Men who were in charge to History, literature and important developments on Earth..
The point I m making here Gail Baker, is that our world is full of interpretations, specially the interpretation of the male version of his-story, but the good news is that we can write story as well, and we have the internet to raise awareness.

To be continue…………………..
