the Garden of Eden Divorce of Asherah and Yahweh

"Yahweh’s Divorce from the Goddess Asherah in the Garden of Eden"
or
Was the Garden of Eden story created to dishonor and defame Asherah?

The Garden of Eden story is a recycling of standard  Mesopotamian myths. 

It is no accident that the narrative includes a sacred Tree of Life (one of Asherah’s attributes) and a serpent (another one of Asherah’s attributes).

 By deliberately interweaving Asherah representations into the Garden of Eden story, the authors were able to successfully defame Eve/Asherah – the Feminine component of religious worship.  

Author Arthur George presents addresses this further in “Yahweh’s Divorce from the Goddess Asherah in the Garden of Eden."
