Gaianism and the Gaianists

Hey, deep ecologists: the planet is not your nature preserve!

In the absence of a Creator a number of people have taken to worshipping the next best thing, creation itself. This phenomenon has been exemplified by the rise of Gaianism and the Gaianists. Given the poor state of the environment today this sentiment has mutated into the kind of reverential desperatism and misanthropism that is now the all too familiar opium promoted by the deep ecologists.
The deep ecologists and Gainists ascribe divine status to nature—a kind of neo-pantheism--and like their religious forbearers, have insisted on keeping humanity outside the gates of heaven. In their view, man is dirty, irreverent, and profane. His sheer presence is an affront to the divine processes of nature, the very cause of paradise lost; terms like ‘biodiversity’, ‘symbiogenesis’, ‘biosphere’, and ‘homeostasis’ have replaced the old religious canons.

Dennis Prager makes the point the commie-libs are busy closing zoos and changing opinion of the acceptability of keepig animals in zoos at the same time they are busy trying to turn Westrn Civ into a human zoo where all uncertainty is removed and freedom extinguished.

That's "deep ecologist" in the sense of "deep shit".

Just for fun, go on a science website or facebook post and defend Christianity. You don't even need to go that far..just indicate you are even mildly tolerant and/or sympathetic to believers and then sit back with a bowl of popcorn and enjoy the frenzy. Nothing more fun than getting diehard Enviro-goons worked up into demonic uproar. It's good sport but you may want to protect yourself with some holy water or wear a cross around your neck, perhaps some garlic. It gets rather rough, but it's good fun.
