    Who is more moral? Men or women?

    I am not an atheist but am a man who, thanks to apotheosis, believes himself to have high morals. Perhaps even superior to women.

    I will take the Jewish view of Eden as man’s elevation as opposed to the Christian view that Eden was man’s fall. I do this because the Jewish view was the initial view of their scriptures. I give their view more authority than I do to Christianity. That Jewish view was later reversed by Christianity. Why Christianity did this is not clear.

    2. Orthodox Judaism: The Garden of Eden

    For this mental exercise, I say women are more moral than men. I take this view because teaching a topic is the best way to learn it, and that most of the child rearing/teaching in that day was done by women. Women then, teaching children their first morals, would also teach themselves morals faster than what men would.

    I do not read scriptures literally but will use the literal view and my logic trail and progression through Eden as if I do.

    Eve was first to eat of the tree of knowledge, and as scriptures states, became as God. That is, she developed the same moral sense as God. She then recognized that instead of leaving Adam to follow God’s instruction to not eat, she chose, with her new wisdom, to have Adam also eat of the tree of knowledge. Thus both were elevated to having a moral sense.
    Is the Jewish view the correct one?

    Who should lead mankind in religious and political thinking?

    Who is more moral? Men or women?

    I try to avoid religious threads, but I do have experiences with the integrity of men and women, both as employees and as rental tenants.

    With 45 employees, plus, in the summer time, I found women to have the highest integrity, over men. They tend to take much less advantage of an owner's business, than men. Always, of course, exceptions. The worst offender and thief was a woman.

    In my apartment rentals, I prefer men tenants, as they are less hard on an apartment unit, than women. They take better care of that which is not theirs. Although my very worst tenant of all, was a man.

    I am speaking generally, in each of the above situations.

    Morally speaking, humankind is one species and cannot really be compared, in that sense.

    I tend to think females are more moral. Just personal experience though.

    You did indicated your view of religious boards.
    With that in mind, who do you think are better on these boards and what is your opinion on women running religions?
    Also, are you male or female? I thnk male but seek confirmation.
    And where did you learn your morals from, a male or female?

    Regards

    I tend to agree.

    Care to opine on who should run governments and religions?
    Should it be the more moral choice?
