Nowhere is the influence of sex more plainly manifested than in the formulation of religious conceptions and creeds. The object of this book is not only to furnish a brief outline of religious growth, but to show the effect which each of the two forces, male and female, has had on the development of our present God idea. Discussions include topics such as: sun worship, fire and phallic worship, sacrifices, and many more. A trustworthy history of the growth of religions must correspond to the processes involved in the mental, moral, and social development of the individual and the nation.

By means of data brought forward in these later times relative to the growth of the God-idea, it is observed that an independent chain of evidence has been produced in support of the facts recently set forth bearing upon the development of the two diverging lines of sexual demarcation. In other words, it has been found that sex is the fundamental fact not only in the operations of Nature but in the construction of a god.
