I grew up Christian. If you look at the logic of the bible, even as a child, I always thought it made more sense that God was a woman.

My own Catholic mother would call entertaining this concept blasphemy. So as a little girl, I never dared to ask questions when I was confused with the bible story of how the creation of humans came about.

The bible says God made Adam first …a man.

Then took a rib from Adam and made Eve…a woman.

Helloooooo?!

What’s wrong with this picture?

Just looking at the science they taught us in school, this concept didn’t make sense.

Everyone knows that all babies come from a woman's womb. Wouldn’t it make more sense that it was Eve that gave birth to Adam?

The Catholic religion is built on the premise that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary. That concept confused me too but if people are going to believe that, Adam being born of Eve is not such a great stretch of the imagination.

They call God a creator for a reason
