Genesis not anti-feminist

Whether one looks at the debate allegorically or literally, there is no debate in the moral lesson of Genesis. Please forgive me if I’m an advert for Jordan Peterson, but I feel he has explained it best for non-believers or extreme secularists. Genesis, colloquially known as the Adam and Eve saga, is in no way anti-feminist. Yes, I said it.

Sure, the feminists argue that Eve came from Adam’s rib, yet in no way does that make her less than him. Just like me coming out of my mother’s womb doesn’t make me less. Furthermore, Eve suggesting that they eat the forbidden fruit is clearly a suggestion of desired power and prestige, however, when God shows up Adam lies to God and blames the love of his life. Which is worse? Suggesting an action to be a better individual or lying to the creator and blaming the love of your life?

The reality is that Genesis is not a moral lesson of feminism and/or misogyny. It’s a lesson of trying to be more powerful than the Great Source, and if called upon such vice, lies and blame are not the right course of action. How this ever got reeled in to feminism and misogyny is beyond my comprehension. The next time people exploit ancient scripture for their own political benefits or social causes, please give it a second or twelfth thought.
