About the origins of religion
Humans became the dominant animal species because they can cooperate on a large scale in a flexible way. The flexibility comes from culture. Cultures define how people cooperate and cultures can change. To make large scale cooperation possible humans have imagined things like laws, money, property, corporations and nation states. These things only exist in the minds of humans. Gods are figments of human imagination too. Science may have enabled humans to make their fantasies become reality. Humans may have turned into gods themselves when they became immortal and created virtual reality universes for their own entertainment. We may be living in one of those universes.
Who was Mary Magdalene?
Who was the Bride of Christ? And why did Jesus appear to have a loving an intimate relationship with God. There might be an answer to these questions. Mary Magdalene could have been an avatar of God. Jesus may have thought that she was a reincarnation of Eve and that he was a reincarnation of Adam. Jesus hay have believed that Eve was not made out of the rib of Adam but that Adam was born as a son of Eve so that Adam and therefore Jesus were a son of God.
The identity of God
A few spectacular turns in history made the God of Abraham the dominant deity on the planet. This universe might be a virtual reality created by an advanced civilisation for the purpose of entertaining someone we call God. God might use avatars and appear as an ordinary human to us. Initially Christianity might have been about the marriage between Mary Magdalene and Jesus representing the Kingdom of God.
Mother Goddess Eve
Research indicates that Eve may have been a Mother Goddess before the creation story was redacted. Eve is called Mother of all the Living. The creation of Adam and Eve in Genesis 2 is at odds with Genesis 1. It is also peculiar that the woman was made from a rib of the man. Adam calling Eve mother of all the living before they had any children also suggests tampering. It is hard to believe that Eve and Adam were the only people as their children married.
