Synopsis

Switching to Goddess tells not only how and why the world’s become a sorry mess, but also what to do about it. War, terrorism, poverty, all can be traced to one single event: the switch, about 6000 years ago, from goddess- to god-worship. This switch rumbled over the landscape when a large part of the planet turned to desert, and hundreds of thousands of the world’s first farmers starved to death. The switch from goddess to god helped lock into place a new starvation culture, one that might have faded away once its usefulness had passed. Instead, this new culture became set in stone and passed down from generation to generation. Even in the midst of plenty, the deep-rooted and largely unconscious fear of starvation haunts its bearers. Starvation culture is now threatening to wipe us off the face of the earth. The fix is in coming to terms with starvation culture, ditching the gods, and switching back to goddesses. This book tells how to do that.
Jeri Studebaker holds a master’s degree in prehistory/archaeology and has studued the origins of agriculture, cultural anthropology and ancient Minoan art. She lives in Maine in US.
