"In The Beginning" romanticized, from Michelangelo’s The Fall of Adam and Eve to Durer's or Cranach's, comes with huge responsibilities. Let your mind run wild, have fun, make stuff up like the source material but start with the reflection that if you were whimsically made from scratch, you would not have scars left by the umbilical cord attaching the fetus into the placenta. No birth, no bellybutton! The story of creation from The Book of Genesis, when absorbed literally, not as metaphor or allegory, jump starts intolerance and corrupts the future of a promisingly inclusive, loving life free of bigotry, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, and all sorts of mental evolution blockages fueled by nothing but the first coupling of faint of mind and hate. To every "God made Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve" quoting religious nutjobs and harmful extremists, I give you a just as made up Adam and Eve. Inspired by gender equality, the true blessings of knowing fact from fiction, and what the hell, the Rebel Heart Madonna, who has always known Where Life Begins.
