You'd think God would know to start off with the machine gun by now.

Because he was invented by men, duh. They weren't going to invent a female monotheistic god! That'd just be silly.

So what about all the ancient Mother Goddess worship?

Men learned that through patriarchal religion they could increase their social dominance? Or they decided that being the dominant social paradigm made it okay to believe that God looked like them?

Or, to use a quote that has questionable attribution, "God created man in His own image and man, being a gentleman, returned the favor."

Or, if you prefer, Montesquieu (1721) said, "if triangles had a god, they would give him three sides."

I like how only one member of the sisterhood cheers. It's a nice sign of their personality.

SUDDENLY
OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE
EVE WITH A MACHINE GUN

....and now I'm trying to imagine the story of Genesis as an action-thriller. It's kind of working, but not really.
