  •  You're not supposed to spill the sacred seed. (4+ / 0-)

    I read a timeline on the history of contraception recently.
    It wasn't until the mid-1800's, when the ovum was discovered, that it was realized that women were anything but incubators for the "life" provided by the man.

    Yep, the sacred seed was the source of life. Which is why in the Bible, although there are tons of male geneologies--"G, the son of F, the son of E, the son of D, the son of C, the son of B, the son of A"--the female ancestors are rarely mentioned. Why should they be? They were, after all, only incubators.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

      if you go back farther, more ancient peoples saw the woman as the source of life. And these were not uncivilized and ignorant people; there were more developed cultures around Europe and the Middle East before the nomadic tribes that worshiped sky gods invaded.

        Most people have never heard of them. Sad.

      •  there are plenty of remembered matriarchs (0+ / 0-)

        and the culture those biblical people and that of their decendents is matriarchal.  Can you stop spreading misinformation about general history and Jews now?

        •  ? (0+ / 0-)

          who said anything about Jews? it so happens most of the tribes I refer to were Aryans , but it's true that some Hebrew tribes were part of the invasions into more the more egalitarian cultures too. Check out some research by Marija Gimbutas.

    •  what on earth? (0+ / 0-)

      Are you really this ignorant, or just think it's ok to talk shit about my ancestors today?
