Pretty self-explanatory, but feel free to elaborate.

By men? What about women?
That is why God is male, isn't it?

True, however the real question is whether or not he ends up being beneficial to those under him. After all, nothing says that a democracy is perfect.

Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if the patriarchy had a lot to do with the religious beliefs.

The God of the Bible is.... the only logical answer to where humankind, and the earth, came from.



Up to this day, science has failed to provide a rational answer to explain how life and the earth was created... other than by an intelligent designer. Every popular theory science has ever provided has been proved false eventually... including evolution, natural selection, etc.

How is that proven false? Isn't the other way around?
The creation in the genesis book doesn't have sense at all, does not have scientific reasoning. But that is because it was written thousands of years ago.

If we wish to seriously consider the account of Creation as given in the Book of Genesis, then we must give equal weight to the consideration of the creation of the world by the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

You have a strong patriarch society, the judaism, in which their religion is monotheist, writing religious books and setting their rules and laws based in that type of system.

My point is that if that society would have been matriarch, then God would be a female figure today instead of a male, and the rules and traditions would be a lot different.

the bible was made up by man. that's easily evident. the fact that so many other religions around the same time as christianity's formation shows that all christianity is is a theological version of puff daddy.
