Adam and Eve: The greatest lie prevents true equality

“Adam and Eve is the greatest lie ever told. We were all female in the womb. So the male is made from the female, not the other way round. Always. Systemic inequality in law, religion and society is not just morally wrong, it’s Bronze Age, batshit crazy, and science disproves its basis.

– Gary J Byrnes, March 2020.
