RE-DIVINING EVE 2005-2016

"Did you know that it is believed that the 'apple' that Eve ate in the Garden of Eden was actually a pomegranate?"

"Growing up Catholic, I learned the myth of Adam and Eve: a moral story to teach children to avoid temptations, or there would be consequences. Eve was considered the worst offender of temptation, for she was given a harsher punishment than Adam for eating of the forbidden fruit that was offered to her by the devil disguised as a talking serpent. Painful childbirth and domination by man was the consequence.  “Re-Divining Eve” is a re-definition a universal myth to remove its message of blame, shame, and guilt, replacing it with the divine."
