“They who know of no purer sources of truth, who have traced up its stream no higher, stand, and wisely stand, by the Bible and the Constitution, and drink at it there with reverence and humility; but they who behold where it comes trickling into this lake or that pool, gird up their loins once more, and continue their pilgrimage toward its fountainhead.” ~Henry Thoreau, Civil Disobedience
A Sprinkling of Resources to Explore the Open Landscape
Earth Congregation (a wild idea)
The Green Bible (“The Word of God. . .biodegradable”)
The Earth Bible (an Aussie, earth-justice approach)
The Green God (a university class)
Earth Gospel (a christian’s effort)
Beyond God (the next steps up the path)
Freethoughtpedia (worth it for the warning label)
Strange Behaviors (Richard Conniff)
Biodiversity Foundation (E.O. Wilson)
Biomimicry Institute (Janine Benyus)
And, while looking for an honest approach Beyond the Bible (actually just another theo-illogical pseudo-progressive pile of paper)
I found: The Pink Camo Bible (isn’t that special?)
*Think About It: The Word of the Almighty Creator of the Universe . . .On Sale!. . .
I’m waiting for the Cute and Cuddly Version. . .covered with fur. . .maybe with a pop-up Jesus singing “Eat It” for Communion, to the tune of MJ’s “Beat It.” It’s gonna make a mint.
How about the Accessories version—with pockets containing crucifixes and communion sets?
Or, maybe the Crucifixion version—with real long nails, a hammer and actual splinters from the old rugged cross!
Or, the islamist version—comes with its own Improvised Explosive Device, or better yet, a Qur’an that will survive the exploding bomber!
All such a Joke, if it wasn’t.
The Skeptics’ Annotated Bible, Qur’an, Book of Mormon (someone took way too much time on this, but then again, at least someone is paying attention)
