While it's my personal view that all of this is mostly true, I think it would be useful to add citations cause it is a very "anti-christian" stance, and probably needs at least authors who are writing on this topic to be listed as reference. It's also quite vague on Ashera herself, and her role in the various Mesopotamian religions. The entire "fall from grace" stuff is again, very interesting, but its not really based on anything but guesses. I don't know how much "weasel word" approach is good here, but there's no real evidence in academics to support what is being claimed, just lots of very logical people saying "this makes sense as it's happened in other religions that we can trace".

I found a few cites, but WP useses mostly book cites, which unless I can find an excerpt I don't really like using. Тyrannis 17:01, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

She's also the boss of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. I think. I never actually beat that game. It was too damn hard. Plus Awakening is like A(g64,g64) times better. Wehpudicabok [話] [変] 08:26, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

So the 'sons of God' who found human women attractive and/or the ditto mentioned in Jonah would be Asherah's? (And who did the daughters marry?) 31.51.114.13 (talk) 23:28, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

She's just Ishtar/Inanna/Astarte adapted to Canaanite audiences. Never mind evangelists when confronted with the fact YHWH had a wife and other people seen now as bad guys where his companions will ignore that. --93.191.139.7 (talk) 21:07, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
