Ah, the books of Timothy: my favourite. They're the ones that I use to keep all the women in line.
"Let a woman learn in silence with full submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach, or to exercise authority over a man, but to be in silence."-1 Timothy 2:11,12
Such sage advice. The Bible is truth, and such a statement must be obeyed; otherwise, off to hell we go.
This only proves the narrowness of your mind and intellect! That you can read something into existence that is not there. Read the whole context of the book and not just the verse if you wish to gain a better understanding of what is meant in 1Timothy 2:11-12.
For the record the Bible is full of women who taught and prophesied to all the people both men and women. For example...
"And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time."
To be a judge is to be a leader and an example of the people and for the people.
Although this is probably why you hold fast to the theory of evolution. Only a narrow mind, lacking in understanding, could read into existence something that is not really there.
