Women are evil?

I watched a documentary on the National Geographic Channel a while ago. I forgot the name, but it was about the New Testament or something. They briefly talked about a religious sect who believed that women are evil. I did not understand why they would believe such a thing until last night when I was lying awake in bed, unable to sleep as usual. Let me explain here.

Most people believe that we have souls, or we are infact spirits living in a material world. So the soul is the entity of life itself, and the body is just a vessel. And people believe in heaven and hell; that all good comes from heaven, and all evil from hell. The soul is pure, and is free from all temptation. But not flesh. With flesh comes the seven deadly sins. Vanity, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Wrath, Avarice (Greed), and Sloth. All these are the result of the sensory abilities of flesh. The body can interact with the physical world, and some of these interactions bring pleasure. So the body wants more, when the soul knows that it may be doing wrong. That little voice at the back of our heads will be telling us to stop, but our body desires more and more pleasure. So the fight of good against evil may infact be the fight between body and soul. Satan can be a metaphor for flesh. And Satan may have won a great victory a long time ago by trapping all souls in these vessels of flesh. The body is weak and can be damaged or destroyed, but the soul perseveres forever. So death can actually be the gift of man, where Satan is vanquished, and the soul released forever. If that is so, then birth is the Doom of man, where a soul is captured, and trapped in a weak, fragile, unholy vessel. So that sect may have seen that women are the agents of procreation, and the womb is the machine that manufactures these vessels to trap souls.

Note: I am not sexist. This is just a thought.

How could they think women are evils with this reason as without men, women cannot make the soul trapping process a success.

If women are really evils then I think small amount of men are joining women in this evil's job as well if we take into account of cloning. Ha...

the cloning process still requires a womb. And why did you change the picture of the witch? The other one was better

An interesting and thought provoking article you put up there, Ruben.

Well, I am not a Christian but I think if you are right in this, maybe that is what it meant when Adam and Eve had sinned when they produce more humans on Earth, trapping the innocent souls in the mere mortal bodies?

I read your blog Lewis, your story sounds like those American stories in Hollywood movies. Anyway, great to know someone like you! But it's really sad to hear your story (beginning part), perhaps that explains what we always say in Physics "you do not have to go around making trouble, nature does it for you."
