Its known that at the beginning of Society , GOD was worshiped in the form of Female .
But why this trend changed .
Many Male Warrior Gods took birth by 3000 BCE .

Back then were Women in majority that led to this kind of worship .
Are there any Religions in West that pray to Mother Goddess .
What has Torah , Bible and Quran got to say on Mother Goddess .

Is there any mention of such phenomena in the above mentioned books ?

If the deity exists they are unlikely to be female, as she would have done a much better job, LOL!!!!

If you want to make up a god that suits your pleasures, the have at it, but the God of Israel is definitely referred to a male as in, Father of the Son of God.

Its interesting that the Hebrew word for woman, "ishR31;shahR42; literally means a female man.

God is neither male nor female in that he, as well as the angels in spirit form, have no sex organs. No genitalia. Male of female.

God is also, in a sense, both male and female as we know the terms in accordance with the personality traits and how they differ, because, as the Bible says, they were both made in his image. His likeness, if you will. So those things that make men men and women women, other than the obvious physical differences, are both a part of the way Jehovah God thinks and acts.

The Hebrew language uses gender, i.e. masculine, feminine and neuter like Spanish does today. God and the angels are always referred to in the masculine, like a ship is usually referred to as feminine. Wisdom, which is also applied to Jesus, is in the feminine.

I think you are confused in your interpretation, according to your own tradition. You can imagine that the word "man" in Genisis 1 referrs to mankind, by taking the following quote into consideration.

Genesis 1:26-30 King James Version (KJV) (capitalization, my emphasis)

26 And God said, Let us make manKIND in OUR image, after OUR likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; MALE AND FEMALE created he them.

That would be male and female crated He them, after saying in His image mad he him. "Them" plural "him" singular, also Adam was created first before being placed in the garden, and Eve was made after words. And in all senses of the word father and son and understandings of such through out the whole of the world except maybe you, is male by all understanding through out the human race.

Not to mention the rest of the Bible that tells of the same God refers to Him in the male terms through out.

As per Shaktism, Adi Parashakti appeared as Divine Pure Eternal Consciousness i.e. Shoonya Bindu, the divine zero feminine energy, which then expresses itself as prakriti (Universal Nature)

The concept of Adi shakti is very much similar to the modern discoveries in the field of Modern science and technology. Energy is basic entity that is base of all, as of Energy doesn't require a base. This is what when energy exist even after destruction of Universe. Science named it, the Dark Energy responsible for destruction and Vacuum Energy which creates universe. An energy that exist even after destruction and before creation is called Zero Energy or Sacred Energy or Supreme Intelligence. Scriptures like Devi Bhagwata Purana, four Vedas consider Kali as Dark energy which dissolute complete universe along with time. Lalita gives birth to the universe in the form of cosmic egg which later got banged to create manifested universe. Ultimately, Adi shakti her self is the Zero Energy which exist even after destruction of universe and before its creation.

You ought to re-read Genisis Chapters 1 and 2. Your sequence is Waaayyy off! I'll summarize the sequence, then post direct quotes of my summary, ok?

ManKIND was created in the SIXTH day, according to Genesis 1:26-27, MALE AND FEMALE. (already provided quote for)

In Gen. 1:28 instructions are given to "be fruitful and multiply"
If only Adam was created, what is he supposed to impregnate to multiply with?

Gen. !:29 are instructions of what is to be eaten, "EVERY tree,.....for you it shall be for meat" this too according to the story occurred BEFORE the garden.

Genesis Chapter 2 begins with the SEVENTH day and God RESTING. never says if he woke up while another being messed with the earth

Genesis 2:4 is where god is given a specific title, LORD, is how he is referred to beginning in Gen. 2:5 and gives an entirely different account of "creation" as well as in my opinion a different persona.

It is my personal belief, that the God of Genisis 1, and the god who calls himself LORD are not the same, and its why God in Genesis Chapter 1 says OUR image.

Genesis 1:28
"28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and EVERY TREE, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed;TO YOU IT SHALL BE FOR MEAT.

Genesis 2:1-5
2 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
