I really wish this thread could have stayed constructive and peaceful but it's just getting rude now.
As a woman I am absolutely fine about the position the bible has put me.

To be honest and not to sound condescending - I think faith is a hard concept to understand if you don't have it.
How would you explain to those Ancient Egyptians I have mentioned a few times...(if you had the chance)... that the sun is not infact pushed across the sky each night by a God who takes the form of a dung beetle?
...or would you be happy to just accept that is what they beleive? That that is their 'faith'?

Those genuinely interested in talking about translation and doctrine I would love to continue chatting with you, I really enjoyed that. I'm not sure if there's a possibility of having a closed thread seeing as this forum as a whole seems incapable of having a conversation regarding religion that doesn't go sour.
If you want to pm, Id love to speak more

You don't know anybody's background or what their faith has been. I was raised a catholic, went to catholic school. I'm not ignorant. I have friends who are all from different religious backgrounds, including Christian, Islamic, Hindu.
I've travelled a lot and find places of worship/shrines etc. Fascinating.

As a non-religious person who enjoys reading discussions in semantics, translations, interpretations etc, I was really enjoying this thread.

Yes, I'm happy to let the Egyptian belief slide. If they want to put faith in a dung beetle - be my guest. Their lives, their beliefs. Same applies to those who have a different belief to mine, including those who are atheists etc. I thought that was a basic of being a human? Respect the right to a belief in something..anything or anyone.

I'm not talking about you as a woman today. I'm talking about the treatment of women throughout the Bible.
My kids are being told stories from it.
And I am genuinely interested to see how and why people translate things the way they do -- becasue I live side by side these people. And many decisions made in my life time will be based on teachings from this book of books.

It always surprises me when people miss the irony in their behaviour.
