So today’s topic is Ecology and religion. At first I didn’t understand how these correlated, but I get it now. It has to do with the relationship of humans and everything else on the planet. Which, I mean, is what ecology is, I guess.
Are humans superior to animals? To what extent? It’s a weird thing to think about. In the same way that we are raised to love our parents, we are raised to think that humans are the only real species, and the rest are considered pets or fields of study.
According to the religious side, since God made humans and made animals and fruit and the land for us, we are supposed to control everything, and we have ownership of it. Funky stuff.
