Why I hate the Da Vince Code....

I decided last week to read the Da Vinci Code. Besides the incredible inaccuracies, there's one thing that really bugs me - and that's the ridiculous feminism. Yes, the book is full of anti-male feminism. Check out this paragraph from chapter 28:
The days of the goddess were over. The pendulum had swung. Mother Earth had become a man's world, and the gods of destruction and war were taking their toll. The male ego had spent two millenia running unchecked by its female counterpart. The Priory of Sion believed that it was this obliteration of the sacred feminine in modern life that had caused what the Hop Native Americans called 'koyanisquatsi' - "life out of balance" - an unstable situation marked by testosterone-fueled wars, a plethora a misogynistic societies, and a growing disrespect of Mother Earth."
How's that for blaming everything on men????

The fact that there is absolutely no anthropological evidence of matriarchal societies hasn't prevented 'feminists' from selling a load of BS to the public.

'Feminist' groups in North America however are simply another bunch of government funded lefty squawkers, so of course they squawk what they're told to squawk.

A recent example: Sharia law coming to a jurisdiction in North America - were they 'outraged' or 'oppressed' or 'offended' blah, blah, blah... No, didn't bother them in the least.

Actually, there is paleolithic evidence of matriarchy: A very nasty and violent matriarchy too.

The Goddess culture probably controlled all of Europe, western Asia and north Africa up until about 4,500 years ago. That culture was more violent than most patriachies. The goddess started the long decent into oblivion when the men in Egypt rose in rebellion: The men, according to current thinking, likely killed off the women, kept the girls and started the rise of the old kingdom.

My problem with DaVinci is that Brown left out the nastiness of the Goddess: He left out the human sacrifice, the fact that males had no rights, the preaching of hatred in the form of female superiority ... Brown shows a Goddess stripped of all her vicious nastiness, leaving only a pure & good view of a complex religion.

We cannot arive at a free and fair society without including both the male and female in the form of BOTH the sacred and the shadow. Sadly, Brown, like our western society, speaks only of the sacred feminine without in the same breath speaking of the shadow feminine.

The big religions have always spoke of the sacred & shadow masculine: This is the correct "half" way to approach the topic. We should have added the sacred and shadow feminine many centuries ago. We did not. This is a primary cause of our current society's problems. We see the good in the female, but cannot see the bad! Thus, we live in a society which is sick and getting rapidly sicker.

'Goddess culture' has existed, but that in and of itself is not evidence of matriarchy - they simply worshipped a Goddess, like the way some people regard the Virgin Mary. Men and women can worship a goddess all they want, but in ancient history when brute strength was a big factor in who had power and who didn't - men had the power.
