Human History Part 2

Mysteries have always been apart of our life. Many of the important questions in life had no answers, until now. I have gained knowledge that must be shared with my fellow human beings. I have gained this knowledge through tireless efforts of research and mainly through an over-active imagination.
One of the most important questions ever put forth by the great philosophers is, why do men have nipples?
They would have this answer if they had only known about the Great Empire from so long ago. In part one, I told about the origins of the gods and this one is dedicated to one of the great eternal questions.
In the early days of the Great Empire, the people had both sex organs and they were referred to themselves as man. The Great Empire, in its full glory, covered the entire Earth. The land mass was large, but the philosophers and scientists noticed a startling problem. The Great Empire was getting over populated, because early man reproduced by masturbation. When a man got pregnant, he could not perform his duties. The philosophers and scientists knew something had to be done. So, they told the people that the gods would punish them if they got pregnant more than once. But, even the punishment from the gods could not make the people quit masturbating and reproducing.
The philosophers and scientists studied the problem day and night. A naturalist and skilled surgeon named Gender solved the problem. In his studies, he noticed that most animals were either male or female and that they were not male and female in one. So, with a chosen team of scientists and surgeons, he devised a surgery that would separate the two sexes. They picked two test subjects and went to work. Months passed and success was to be had. Gender was successful in separating man into male and female.
He made the male for physical labor, for seed production, and for thinking. He made the female for beauty, singing, for child bearing, and for house cleaning. For a time Gender thought it would be best if the new males and females shared the nursing duties, but this failed. When it was the male's time to nurse the baby, the chores went undone. So, he done away with these milk men and made the nursing duties fall solely to the woman.
Gender had done a good service for the Great Empire, therefore, he got to name the female and he called her woman.
The question often asked during the second age of the Great Empire was, what did Gender give you? Slowly, that question evolved into what is your gender?
Author's Note:This was exactly a story outline. I found a disc that a ton of my writings that I thought was lost, but now can be posted for your reading pleasure.

New Years Day

It has been too long since I have written a serious post. Wait, I never wrote a serious post too often on here. The end of the year is upon me. It is a time for reflection and to consider what you have done in life. It is also a time for new beginnings, although everyday is a new beginnging, but New Year's day is the time that this fact really hits home. I have already set a few new goals for myself, not going to outline them here, so I wonder why I keep a blog sometimes. I don't use it much and I never kept a diary before. I have tried to about five times. You write down all kinds of pointless matters in it and when something cool happens you are too tired to record it.

The Preamble Project

The Purpose of this project is to present to my readers the Preambles to United States Constitution and to each of the States’ constitutions. I have never seen all fifty-one of them together.


United States Preamble
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect

Delaware Preamble
Through Divine goodness, all men have by nature the rights of worshiping and serving their Creator according to the dictates of their consciences, of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring and protecting reputation and property, and in general of obtaining objects suitable to their condition, without injury by one to another; and as these rights are essential to their welfare, for due exercise thereof, power is inherent in them; and therefore all just authority in the institutions of political society is derived from the people, and established with their consent, to advance their happiness; and they may for this end, as circumstances require, from time to time, alter their Constitution of government.

Pennsylvania Preamble
WE, the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of civil and religious liberty, and humbly invoking His guidance, do ordain and establish this Constitution.

Massachusetts Preamble
The end of the institution, maintenance, and administration of government, is to secure the existence of the body politic, to protect it, and to furnish the individuals who compose it with the power of enjoying in safety and tranquillity their natural rights, and the blessings of life: and whenever these great objects are not obtained, the people have a right to alter the government, and to take measures necessary for their safety, prosperity and happiness.
The body politic is formed by a voluntary association of individuals: it is a social compact, by which the whole people covenants with each citizen, and each citizen with the whole people, that all shall be governed by certain laws for the common good. It is the duty of the people, therefore, in framing a constitution of government, to provide for an equitable mode of making laws, as well as for an impartial interpretation, and a faithful execution of them; that every man may, at all times, find his security in them.
We, therefore, the people of Massachusetts, acknowledging, with grateful hearts, the goodness of the great Legislator of the universe, in affording us, in the course of His providence, an opportunity, deliberately and peaceably, without fraud, violence or surprise, of entering into an original, explicit, and solemn compact with each other; and of forming a new constitution of civil government, for ourselves and posterity; and devoutly imploring His direction in so interesting a design, do agree upon, ordain and establish the following Declaration of Rights, and Frame of Government, as the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
