Anne and Paul Ehrlich wrote: “Evidence points to the need for a quasi-religious transformation of cultural values.”
Passover and Easter are liberation stories, from Egypt & from Rome; into the Promised Land & into the miracle of Life After Death. Christians & Jews celebrate control over the Earth, its storms & bodies of water & animals. An obedient natural world is the theatrical frame of Moses and Jesus.

To believe in this planet-wide event is to have a new kind of faith. Earthalujah!
