The Evolution of Human DNA Includes the Seeds of Rebellion
Oppressors BEWARE the newly literate masses, for when information and education are free, the people will be also!
Nietzsche declared "God is dead."
He was referring to the modern trend toward agnosticism and atheism, and he frames God as a story.
That God was dead was shocking enough, but that we killed him, took Nietzsche to a heightened individual voice. He was bold and went against the grain.
All Gods are stories told by humans to explain existence, and most gods we have created are dead. Think of the Greek and Roman Gods, crushed by Christianity.
Nietzsche claims that modern life has eliminated the need for god, but he asks what will replace him. In other words, if you don't believe in God, where is your moral foundation? If you don't believe in God, how do you tell the story of existence in a powerful way that rings true?
Nietzsche values the individual who must always fight to keep from becoming a drone, one of the mindless masses. Tribes always threaten to strangle individuality, and resisting the majority is difficult. With and without god, people must fight for their individuality.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Near 6:00 in the evening, dark thick clouds blocked the light over Rexburg, Idaho, as vicious storms of wind, hail, and massive rain loomed. Houses hit the hardest were in the valley areas and homes with basements.
Even homes with slightly lowered elevation were inundated with silt and muddy water. Emergency services gave warning of flash flooding hours after the damage had been incurred.
Mass evacuations to the nearby campus of Brigham Young University - Idaho, helped rescue efforts, but nothing could hold back muddy, gushing waters penetrating an estimated hundreds of homes.
Time will tell the financial damage incurred, but at this point the community is coming to the rescue in unprecedented numbers, and the people are safe, though salvation efforts will continue through the night and the immediate future.
There is no telling how long citizens will remain in refuge on the BYU - I campus.

We blog to live fully with family and friends
As I write, my 11 year old boy and my 7 and 8 year old daughters are running up and down the hallway behind me. We have hardwood floors, with no carpet to soften the sound. They are having brilliant fun.
I am a family centered blogger. This might seem a distraction, but those who acquire lasting happiness, find the source in home and family. Family centered means that you incorporate family into your blogging in many ways.
Like me, many bloggers write from home, and the business provides more intimacy with the family throughout the working day. Most bloggers confess openly that their writing and lives are flavored with the dialect of the family.
Balancing the fam and the blog
While the intimate connection between home and blogging is largely an advantage, one must try to maintain boundaries between the two.
Some boundaries that are useful to create include:
I am blessed to have a blogging family, and the unity and happiness in the Hammond Home compensates for a few missed deadlines and a few missed ball games.
