Earth 8-8-2 Invasion: Nature vs Nurture

Nature vs. Nurture (and Revised Cover Reveal)

It’s the age-old psychological question …

What makes a person evil, is it nature or nurture?

For many years psychologists, psychiatrists, scientists of all kinds and the like have been trying to answer this question without a definitive consensus. Some say it’s nature, others argue that it’s nurture. Then there are those who blur the lines and say that perhaps it’s both. So, is the answer black, white or grey?

Genesis, the main character of the Earth 8-8-2 saga also blurs the lines. You see, due to her makeup, it’s nearly impossible to know if she was created that way, or if her upbringing turned the tide.

In my eyes, this debate boils down to science versus tenet.

Let’s take a look-see and see what you think.

First, The Facts

  1. Genesis was made, not born.

  2. Genesis shares DNA from 4 different entities which makes up her own unique DNA.

  3. Genesis has feelings but can also be emotionless.

  4. Genesis was raised by a scientist, a soldier and 2 women (1 old, 1 young).

  5. Genesis had never really experienced heartbreak until she did.

  6. The 4 beings that make up Genesis’ DNA have their own independent characteristics and in many ways those traits contradict one another.

  7. Genesis is all-powerful and singularly so.

What does all of this mean? Let’s see if we can figure it out.

Second, Pros VS Cons

Third, Conjectures

In Genesis’ case, Nature weighs a far greater amount in the makeup of her person. The only counterbalance to her Nature are the binary elements of Nurture (Bullets #s 4 & 5). She carries within her a whopping 72% Nature against a minuscule 28% Nurture.

Which one can win the battle of her mind? Is the greatness of her Nature unremarkable against the strength of Nurturing? Or is it the other way round?

You know what? I’ll let you decide. 😉

Now, without further ado, I will present to you the revamped cover of “Earth 8-8-2: Genesis’ Rebellion”. Before I can do that, however, let’s take a quick look at the old cover.


What happens when Science’s Instrument of Salvation blazes her own path?

In the second installment of the Earth 8-8-2 saga, Genesis is heartbroken, disillusioned, but most of all … angry: angry that she has no say-so in the narrative of her own purpose. In the absence of choice, the only response that makes sense is rebellion.

As Genesis elicits the intensity of her powers, General Townsen must act quickly to develop a counterbalance to this previous experiment gone askew. Will the General’s army rise effectively against this unlikely nemesis, or will all see the literal overtures of what occurs when powers that be attempt to regulate true evolution?

This is NOT a standalone book, but the 2nd installment in a continuing saga.

Alrighty, y’all! Welp, tomorrow is the big day! Stay tuned for the “Earth 8-8-2: Armageddon’s Rise” book release post. You’re gonna love all the surprises I have for you!
