Consequences of wilderness designation - March 29, 2016

All this is embodied in the religion and worship of the Earth Goddess Gaia, who dwells in and is embodied by a sentient planet Earth. The Religious and Political Environmentalists are Her high priests and law givers; Wilderness is their Totem.
Bart Everson's insight:
In this polemic, the author argues that protecting wilderness in Utah would be "the sacrifice of the infidel to the Goddess Gaia."

Has the Gaia theory changed for you since you formulated it?
No, it hasn’t. It came into my mind quite suddenly in America at Jet Propulsion Lab in 1965. Well, that’s over 50 years ago, and it’s been argued about an amazing amount. But it hasn’t changed. It stays the same.

Williams: The broad science of climate change

Williams: The broad science of climate change | Gaia | Scoop.it
In the 1970’s James Lovelock, a NASA planetary scientist, proposed and has since documented the theory of Gaia. The theory states that once Earth had produced dominant populations of prokaryotic organisms (Bacteria and Archaebacteria), those organisms through their metabolisms began to regulate atmospheric composition, ocean chemistry, mineral cycling and biological diversity. These processes are the nature of Gaia. This was initiated over 3.8 billion years ago.

Credo (From Across the Pond)

Credo (From Across the Pond) | Gaia | Scoop.it

You cannot tell me there is no God. Not my bible God but another one, a spirit God, of Gaia, the earth. Many a time I have walked with my God. Sometimes with elation, my heart singing and toneless words coming out of my mouth.
And sometimes I walk with shame, seeing what we have done to my earth, my Gaia.

A heartfelt meditation from a retired Unitarian minister.

Students to Perform all American Concert Tonight

“When I work, I usually compose at a piano. When I wrote this one, I had this picture of a forest or a jungle with big trees and the first thing that came to mind was earth and Gaia is another term for that,” Key said. “There’s this Gaian hypothesis that the earth will reclaim all the man-made structures after we go away. The piece came from that.”

In Greek mythology, Gaïa is the personification of the Earth, the mother goddess who birthed the planet and the entire universe. "She would be angry,” Loueke states bluntly. “We have not taken good care of her child.”
