Default Matriarchal cultures & female Goddesses

I just realized that most patriarchal cultures have male Gods and matriarchal cultures have female Goddesses.
Early prehistoric and historical people's creator often took the form of a female. In most myths the creator is feminine.
In some mythology as the society became patriarchal the goddess was overtaken by a god. Sometimes just the sex of the deity would change.
Some Native American cultures attribute creation to Mother Earth. Some cultures worship the "Queen of Heaven."

Maybe creation was based on females giving birth. In their eyes, that is where creation came from.

Refrencing the ARK of the Covent "Before any priest could take up his calling he had to go through a solemn ritual which lasted for seven days" Ironicly the length of a womans menstral cycle. Why would God demand this? why not 10 -12-14 days. Because MAN took dominence over women and has asserted this thru time. I feel the priest were women, God is written and does things like a women, he creates only women can create life! Men destroy women save.
Think about this WHAT if Jesus was a WOMAN! crazy thinking huh!
but consider it. In the writings of the bible discribing men transpose those into women. Remember what is written was controlled by men. Just think of a 12 girl going into the temple, speaking as a man. Traveling with 12 men but not married to any.

Oh oh okay the effects of the mushrooms are wearing off now! Who, who wrote that stuff up there about women? Thats just crazy, no respectable christian would think that or would they?HMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Your edit is correct, Vishnu: the master of—and beyond—the past, present and future, the creator and destroyer of all existences, one who supports, preserves, sustains and governs the universe and originates and develops all elements within.
The Trimurti (three forms) is a concept in Hinduism "in which the cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction. These three deities have also been called "the Hindu triad"or the "Great Trinity", all having the same meaning of three in One.

I don't know if he is a he or a she but it has four arms and is blue in color.

Creation phantoming from the physical perspective is futile. Creation from the spiritual perspective is where it's at. The genesis of Creation is far above the food chain, somewhere in the region of Spiritual apercu which in turn has for genesis a long line of nurturings... The Gospel ministers to all of creation; and not creation to the Gospel.

The Gospel creates and recreates from litteral dust and water all the elements of life. And it accounts for itself like an account of the hands of a potter to his wheel.

I like to vision my triangles as female. To stay on topic the Greek Goddess Hecate was sometimes depicted in triplicate.
