    This would be totally subjective, it would be a rational and scientific attempt to explain an interesting skeptical question about an irrational claim surrounded in ambiguity in the first place. One example of this would be asking why a pear has a green mustache under a bonobo apple. That sounded like nonsense, and indeed you cannot rationally answer or rationally explain an irrational statement or idea, you have to use more irrationality or subjectivity as the nature of the irrational statement is beyond scope of rationality.

    Well whatever answer you get it isn't likely to make much sense and will be totally subjective. You would only get a true answer if you asked the people that wrote the bible. I would tend to believe though that in those times a female god, would not be taken seriously and for whatever reasons all that that god was and did would likely be relevant to the time and events that were happening in that time.

    I don't understand what kind of answer you want.

    Ah I see now, the answer will be very interesting.

    This a non-scientific question. If you'd perhaps phrased it to analyse the belief, something which can be measured, it might stand a chance. It didn't so it is closed.
