I am now intrigued & drawn to the godess phenomena - "mother" earth is upset with us & is unleashing fury- I do not think that anyone is selected per se & those who were spared in Galveston- odds & better building- that's all. I am curious as to anyone else who have thoughts about the godess aspects????
Read The Chalice and The Blade by Riane Ensler. Still considered a groundbreaking classic. I had no idea how pervasive goddess culture was and how it was ground out of existance by North European dominator cultures. There is another way besides patriarchy.
