Why Men Made God

Why-Men-Made-God-coverwith Karis Burkowski

The Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Celts and northern Europeans all had pantheons of gods and goddesses. What changed and led to the idea of just one, all-powerful God? The evolution of human beliefs is a fascinating story!

For tens of thousands of years, we belonged to the land we lived on. Then we decided that the land belonged to us. Why? This book traces our cultural development from hunter-gatherers to semi-nomads, through the adoption of agriculture and city life, and shows how we changed from a cooperative, peaceful society to one based on division, avarice, conflict and the subjugation of women, children and the planet itself by men.

Knowing and understanding our history explains our present. From our attitudes about gender expression and gender equality to the economic imbalance that is undermining our culture, Why Men Made God sheds light on our disastrous abuse of the environment and our refusal to address the looming climate crisis.

The authors’ conclusions are challenging. If we do not make concerted, global efforts to counteract climate change now, future generations will suffer catastrophic consequences. This book presents a path to regaining balance in the world, to assure our own future and that of our children.

Everyone should know this story, it affects us all.
