S&F Good perception.
In Christianity it is said that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary. The Child of the Mother. In old religions the mother is representative of the
earth. Jesus was born of the earth. Jesus was in contact with the mother.
The earth is a living consciousness, created by god. In Christianity To get to god we must go through Jesus...Jesus being the manifestation of the
earth's consciousness. Catholic religion has woman praying to the mother. The mother is the consciousness of earth or Jesus.
If you look around the pyramids in most places you notice desert. The people stripped the clay layers and the water went down. The clays were used
to fill the pyramids, make bricks and mortars, and to make pottery. They destroyed the environment in the area, nature took over as the runoff of
water went through the exposed sand and washed down the topsoils. The winds blew the sands around covering the areas that still had the clay layer
and a manmade desert evolved in the area. If you look at ancient writings it is evident there were not deserts in many of the areas there are deserts
today. They also stripped out all the trees that could fix the problem and built ships , paths to haul the blocks for their structures, and buildings
out of them It was an ecological nightmare.
All the early religions considered the mother, the earth, as an important being. She was the provider. Along came greed and desire to build bigger
and better pyramids and buildings and the area suffered. This was a big mistake of our ancestors to believe the earth was immortal. They destroyed
their local environment so had to start waging war to gain new areas to grow their food. Then they did the same thing over, destroying the clay
layer. The clays are processed by trees and vegetation, leaves form the mineral rich clays that make this all work well. They also make the humus
that binds the substrate. The minerals in clays are bound, they need a little lime to release the minerals so we can grow veggies. Too much lime and
the soils get burnt.
So God was being sarcastic when he sent Adam and Eve out of the Garden. He was trying to show them that the food we need to survive, the mother could
provide. He sent them out to look for bdelium and gold somewhere, the things that others were destroying the earth to acquire. There were already
others out there, the god depicted in genesis is actually a man who saved these kids, a very wise man who was trying to raise his new family to be
good people. He was teaching them that certain foods extend your life, but they wanted the ones that taste good instead but make you have a rash. He
may have been a Messiah, a person filled with the spirit of god. I will accept that as possible.
So god was proud of his garden of eden, one of his creations. We destroy gods creation and abuse the land. There is not another planet this great
for a long distance, people who think we can reach it and live there are a little disillusioned. We need to take care of this place, not create a
toxic dump. We have to listen to god and learn to listen to mother earth. This planet can be destroyed, it can be made incapable of supporting us.
Science cannot help us with this unless they start backing conservation and environmentalism. We have to understand, even if we do find another
habitable planet with advanced life on it, they will not take us there. The aliens will not want the destroyers of a planet living on their planet.
God will not leave us into heaven if we will destroy the integrity of heaven. We are being tested.
So the direction we are going in with consumerism is wrong. By making things in China instead of making things more environmental friendly, the
polution is still going to reach here, it will effect everyone. China needs to deal with fixing their pollution, they will have to raise prices on
their exports to do this. This will negatively effect the buying power of our dollar but it will make sure our great grandchildren have a world to
live on. Consumerism isn't evil, the tactics they are using of planned obsolescence is evil. We can have things but we need to learn to buy local
and support eco friendly businesses. By echo friendly I do not mean renewable resource industries that destroy land and forests. It seem that those
who desire to make money have sidestepped rationality. A forest is a living organism, not just poplar trees that have been genetically engineered.
We were put on this planet to take care of the world and moderate things. We abused our position and we are on the path to destroying it and the
other animals we are supposed to be managing.
Gees, I'm starting to sound like an environmentalist.
