Exploration of the Western religion is the thrust of this paper-not to affirm an existing belief but to belie it. Genealogy becomes a weapon that the researcher employ in order to make known that the existing patriarchal belief has as its basis only a half-lit region of anthropomorphic projections. It is the desire of the researcher to see and expose the reality of god as female.The aper does not tackle the idea of God being a product of Augustinian divine illumination. God here is presented as a consequent of the peoples failure, the peoples existential shortcomings, or as they say -The idea of God is not a rise, it is a failure, a sort of failure of nerves.The paper touches on the Greeks, specifically on their three major rituals - the Diasia, the Thesmophoria, and the Anthesteria. It unmasks the rituals of its superficialities and goes into the heart, the foundational structure that makes up the rituals, and how conclusively, as a matter of course, the Gods are nothing else but a shadow of a shadow. The psychological, emotional and physical make up of the people of ancient Greece are given distinction, so too the archeological findings and tribal war considerations that are evidences of the transformation of gender belief.
After the Greeks, the evolution of Christianity is given an outsider's historical, analytic point of view. The evolution of Christian belief is qualitatively analyzed in, again, an anthropomorphic perspective with the incorporation of Emile Durkheim's sociological milieu.The conclusion points to the understanding of women's role through religious deconstruction.
