find aspects of my worldview and outlook on life are, to some degree,
associated with taking a human being centered viewpoint where humans are
the most important thing in the universe. I feel humans are special, stand
apart from nature, and "the world belongs to humans.” I am
comfortable with the increasing commodification of everything and valuing
other things based on usefulness to humans. (Note: some extend this
in worshiping a Personal and Moralistic God and highly valuing their own
believe humans are part of nature, not its rulers. People should cherish,
revere, and sometimes stand in awe of natural beauty, not despoil it or
threaten the integrity of ecosystems. The interconnect-ed unity of its
parts / processes should be valued without regard to usefulness to people.
Beyond respect, some feel they belong to nature. Sources of this feeling
include a living in nature groundedness, and indigenous religion. Natural
pantheists identify God with a self-organizing, ever evolving universe.
Some worship the Goddess. Animists talk of gods inhabiting special places.
