If religion is indomitable, infallible, absolute teaching handed down from God to Man as his anointed landlord on Earth, why it does not include in its basic tenets the love and respect for Mother Earth?

My heartfelt thanks to Dr.Georg Peters for encouraging me to pursue my untapped passion in writing and for believing in my potential.

Mother Earth Versus Religion
Did your religion ever teach you to love Mother Earth? Did it pontificates and exalts the significance of mother Nature in your continuous existence? Does your bible, dogma, koran and talmud include in its basic tenets the respect accorded to Mother Earth, and the preservation of the delicate balance of nature in relation to man's interindependence relationship with his home planet?.
If your religion is infallible, personally ordained and anointed by the omnipresent, omnipotent and all powerful knowing God, why does it failed in that regard?
Does God in his infinite wisdom, inadvertently omitted the transmittal of the commandments in respect to mother nature? What if after the transmission of the ten commandments, man plotted to delete it and chose to retain only the laws pertaining to how man worship his creator and how man interacts with his fellow men? The statistical probability of man altering the law is not a remote possibility for man possesses the propensity to subvert and change anything he wants to suit his needs, wants and desires.
Religions all over the world teach man to love God, exaltsGod and glorify God above everything else. It laid down the laws on how humans must conduct its worldly affairs in accordance to the wishes that pleases God. Morals and code of ethics are further taught by religion for peaceful coexistence with his fellow man. Church laws that are strictly imposed on its members over a millenia sounds ludicrous this days.
Religious laws keep on changing with the times, for it is tailor made according to the prevailing moral codes and customs of the people at a particular period of time. Henceforth religious laws are dynamic and not absolute truth. With the many guidelines and rules imposed by your religion nowhere did not incorporate in their dogma or doctrines the important link of the place called Earth where man is taking up his residency. Why is respecting mother nature non existent in your religion?.
Man recognized his creator whom he only perceives in his mind. He puts absolute faith in him. Religion told man that God is there to guide and protect him even if he is invisible, because man is not allowed to see God literally in all his splendor and glory or else man will not live to see another day. Man's absolute belief on the existence of God is based on blind faith.
The time is more than apocalyptic for man to take a big leap of faith and begin to pay attention to his inexplicable link and bond with the one place who gives him shelter, nourish him, feed him, provide him medicine and cures for his various afflictions and so forth.
Religion is not only guilty of cold indifference to mother nature, it is also accusable of propagating population explosion principle, with the words quoted from the Bible, “ go to the world and multiply.", God forgot an addendum, “and let them suffer"
Mother Earth’s resources are depletable and not limitless. His religion chose to turn catatonic on Earth’s limitations and instead taught man to continue in his massive breeding campaign for his religion said that God in his merciful heart will provide man all his basic needs..
.
Man is obsess on saving his soul and getting a safe passage to heaven, while empathy on the plight of his home turf is found at the bottom of his list.. His religion convinced him of the existence of literal heaven, a paradise where everything is good, peaceful and beautiful. Man foolishly succumbed on such crap.
Heaven is right here, right now if man will start to try to make Earth a better place for him to live in.. Relocating to another planet is not feasible. When will man realize his shortcomings and rectify his wrong doings and ill choices?
Man and religion are in collusion to pursue their separate objectives, selfish motives and hidden agenda, with one common goal, to enrich themselves at the expense of mother nature and using the name of thy God in vain.
Quantum leap and breakthrough in science and medicines, has succesfully retard man's mortality rate and have cured deadly diseases that killed him two centuries ago. This resulted in late baby boomers that mushroom suddenly and life expectancy that has tripled in recent decades.
The advent of industrial revolution means increase global demand for food and fuel . Man starts raping the rainforest that sustain him and molesting the coral reefs which is the sanctuary and source of food supply from the sea. Many virgin and sheltered sanctuaries were denuded, different species of fauna become extinct to make way for agriculture, in order to keep up with the rapid increase for food consumption and satisfy man’s insatiable appetite for destruction in the name of capital venture and exploitation..
Church is mighty glad of the sudden influx of people, it means more money in its coffers. While self opportunist capitalists hired scientists to discover new technologies and alternative ways to help increase food production, mass production of different kinds of livestock, and make crops resistance to pests. Man funded costly research spending millions for gene splicing, and incorporating genetically modified organisms, again in the name of profit. Where does Mother Nature fit in the equation?
Does man contemplate investing on research to plant and replace trees that were cut and and used? Did man encourage the use of biodegradable and recyclable products? Man are even at war with each other, to implement self regulated population growth moratorium for the sake of Mother Earth.
Man filled Mother Earth with his filth by breeding like rats.. How long can Mother Nature keep up with fast paced marathon of man's self destruct endeavor?
Religion had never taught man to love the planet where he was fashioned and where God gave him dominion above other creatures. Man should break free from the mental domination of religion and refocus his priorities.
Religion pontificates the fallacy that Earth is a bad and condemned planet. Earth is said to be the prison crypt of the fallen angels and watchers who were punished by God and entombed for thousand years in here in violation of divine memorandum which is the "no interference with human affairs law", a strict directive imposed by God. Yet Earth is the reason why man is alive. It is not only logical, rational and timely for man to be responsive of the Earth's suffering, under his poor tutelage and seriously starts to take care of the place he calls home.
Man does not belong to a fairytale or made up place called shangrila. Earth is where he is billeted indefinitely , unless he cracks the secret code and secret mysteries of space travel and be allowed to become a member of intergalactic alliance, but that is another story. Man must wake up from centuries of lethargic hibernation and perform corrective surgery to halt the complete decimation of its resources. We come and go, but the home planet is here to stay. What legacy would we leave to our children?
What kind of environment?
Earth’s periodic upheavals and calamities are cyclic in nature but man in his greed exacerbated the situation.
Man is still mentally primitive since he learned to walk bipedal. He calls himself civilize, educated, reborn yet he is still obsess on the never ending spiral downward path to conquer, subjugate, divide, and enslaved his own kind. He never learned to look beyond himself and his egoistic perception of a master puppeteer.. He use religion to justify his actions and perverts the basic laws of Nature.
When shall man learn to appreciate the gifts bestowed by Mother Nature? When shall man learn to take care of the bounty right before his eyes? What man has accomplish so far is polluting Earth and make it his personal septic tank. .
Mother Nature is what sustain us all, the reason why we still exists and breath and continue to live.. It is the source of everything he needs in order tofunction, move and live. From the air he breaths, shelter.... Yet man never see the value of its importance in his continuous existence.
Earth’s ecosytem is fragile. Man is the appointed landlord on Earth but man is remiss in his duties. He ought to be kicked or replaced, perhaps burn at the stake for being an idiot.
Religion is bend on saving souls from eternal damnation.Man ought to overhaul his principles and start saving his dying planet..
If salvation is a fact, what reason why God would entertain such thoughts of saving man from the fate of death? What did man achieve so far that will make God think he is worth it ? Man discovered the atomic bomb and almost blew earth in 1960s. Man has altered drastically the landscape of Earth by turning rain forests into deserts. Man put a big hole in the ozone layer. He has changed the DNA make up of certain plants. The lists could go on, of a man's crime and how he indecriminately abused it.
Religion is farce, it is created to manipulate man’s thinking and mind set, It is created to control him. It caters only to the selfish motives and greed of a few individuals and organizations in the name of commerce and perverted form of capitalism.
When shall man snap out from his reverie and mental stagnation? When shall he will start to love and take care of Mother Earth, glorify and exalt her?
What is Mother Earth then? A sort of convenience for Man?

THE VERY ONES WHO ARE RUINING THE EARTH ARE HUMANS. IT IS NOT THAT HUMANS ARE IGNORANT AS TO HOW TO TAKE CARE OF OUR EARTH. IF THEY CAN CULTIVATE ARID GROUNDS FOR AGRICULTURE, I DO NOT SEE ANY REASON WHY WE SHOULD BE GIVEN A DIVINE LECTURE ON THE OBVIOUS.

THE PROBLEM LIES ELSEWHERE. BASICALLY IT BOILS DOWN TO HUMAN GREED. AND THE BIBLE ADDRESSES THIS ISSUE IN MANY PLACES. IN FACT IT CLEARLY WARNS, "NO GREEDY PERSON WILL INHERIT GOD'S KINGDOM. (READ 1 CORINTHIANS 6:9-10) GOD IS NOT ALOOF TO THE RUINATION OF THE EARTH. PLEASE READ THE BOOK OF REVELATION IN THE HOLY BIBLE.

REVELATION 11:18: "AND GOD WILL BRING TO RUIN THOSE RUINING THE EARTH."

REGARDS, SON OF GIDEON

Thanks for your comment. If you try to google the Phils. and the flood brought by heavy rains last night, you will see how the locals have been abusive to its environment and how I cried for Mother Earth and for the innocent children who were drowned and fall victims from such irresponsiveness and greed by the few rich and politicians as well as the utter indifference and apathy of its citizenry.
