Given that God will destroy this earth by fire... ...should we really embrace the idea that humans can save the earth. If we just treat the earth with respect it will look after us. Mother nature, Gaia and all sorts of other notions give a mystic to plain old creation. Watching an advert for tampax (sorry guys) Mother Nature was played by an actress and my immedite gut reaction was that it was a pagan concept imported to an advert. We should embrace the idea (theology?) of stewardship but to think that the fate of the planet is in our hands, doesn't it sound a little arrogant?
