The Side that History Forgot

This was an excellent book pointing out connections between different religions. Exposing attributes of patriarhcal Western religions this book gives the reader a new perspective on history. Much is speculative, but I must say that I haven't found much solid research ...
This was an excellent book pointing out connections between different religions. Exposing attributes of patriarhcal Western religions this book gives the reader a new perspective on history. Much is speculative, but I must say that I haven't found much solid research elsewhere that has been done on much of the topic covered. It is good to read this with a critical eye for speculation, but this book changed how I viewed religion, society and the world at large.

Merlin Stone's work is unreferenced and illogically derivative. Her assertions fail to cite knowledge from her bibliography, (also incomplete) e.g., she fails to recognize the iconology and mythos regarding serpents, the Sumerian origins of The Fall. The latter is remarkable since this work was originally focused on the Adam and Eve myth and titled THE PARADISE PAPERS.

    I liked the part about the biography of "Eve," but I don't think there matriarchy before patriarchy. The Myth of Matriarchy Prehistory by Cynthia Eller is both of feminist and archaeological dispute of the idea.
