You are very kind, Erik. To your point, we once largely did. For some 25,000 years prior to the rise of patriarchal religions, most of the world’s most populous places (with the exception of Hebrews) were matriarchal societies. If you’re curious, it might be interesting to read When God Was a Woman, by Merlin Stone. It’s highly instructive. Thanks for your kind comments.
