a sacred earth ?

“One of the reasons we’re destroying the planet is that it has lost its sacred dimension for us. The planet as given to us by science is a physical reality essentially meaningless in itself. It’s a resource for our physical activity.”

—Thomas Berry, Dream of the Earth

Centuries ago science overtook faith as reality.  The wisdom of the ancients tied the sacredness of our earth and of nature to a power beyond the understanding and reasoning of mankind.  But man’s arrogance demanded an answer to all questions and the discovered explanations which they accepted denied the sacredness of Creation.  The earth has become just another vehicle for our selfish endeavors.
