Separating Fact From Fiction

Land of the Rising Sun

I was just reading an awesome piece in The Economist on the death of an 800 year old Ginko Tree (Ginko biloba) in Japan when I came across the following quote:

“nature is to gods and man what God is to nature and man in Western religions.”

Do we have it backwards here in the West?

It seems as though Western religion – especially given the recent Catholic redux – could use a little dirt beneath its nails.

Instead of Finding Religion they could do themselves good by Finding Mother Nature! It is God’s Green Earth after all isn’t it?
