The evidence was all around them, especially in human guided breeding of animals such as pigeons and dogs. So why was something so obvious not discovered and well defined centuries if not...

Women’s Rights if God was a Girl

How much harm has primitive male dominated societies done to women’s potential over the past millenniums? How long have women suffered as oppressed second class citizens? What would history look like now if the Western god was a woman? What if males were not indoctrinated with a notion of superiority and prejudice against the opposite... Read more »
