Where did the idea that information about our past—history—is “his story”? I find it amazing that knowledge of the past gets pigeon-holed into his and hers.

Okay, much of what was written over the past thousands of years was produced by men chroniclers. So what? Maybe it’s time to clarify why—it is either women or men—who get to tell the story.

I was recently told that my essay of the Sacred Marriage couldn’t be published on a “History” web-site because my degrees aren’t in History or Religious Studies. I do wonder why Metaphysics didn’t quality for Religious Studies because it certainly includes ontology, which means the theories about the nature of being and types of existence, as well as cosmology.

Any thoughts about that?
