EARTH DAY OR EARTH WORSHIP?
Every year since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated on April 22. Most people choose that day to pick up litter and plant trees. It is a time to take into consideration that we should take care of, and be thankful for, our earth that is God�s gift to us - and this is good.
But to those extremists who fear all people (excluding themselves) are destroying their �Mother Earth� or some may call �her� Gaia. Earth Day is a time to promote their cause to �control� all the water, land and resources in the world with no consideration of property owners or their property.
Ordinary people are unimportant in the scope of their visions of control. There is no room for privately owned property as ordinary people would not know how to �preserve� or care for land they own and pay taxes. You will find animals hold a higher place than man when you research their Wildlands Project. They have planned to stack people together in high density housing called Smart Growth following rural cleaning for the Wildlands project.
In exploring the intent of those who choose to �control� the earth in their form of worship, we are reminded of Romans 1:25 which tells us there will come a time when there will be those who begin to worship the creation and not the creator of the earth.
Larry Gabriel, South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture is a true lover of the use of land and private property ownership. He describes the feeling he gets when he rides his horse in the early morning to check on his cattle, �It is not nature worship, as some city folks believe. It is just being part of the land, by remaining quiet and in awe of creation. There is nothing else like it. I hold onto it.�
Originally called "The First National Environmental Teach-in," Earth Day was modeled after the anti-Vietnam war teach-ins of the late 1960s.
In 1962, Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin (served 1963-1981) began a seven year journey to draw political consideration to the drastic attention needed to be given the environment. Nelson said his efforts �was the germ of the idea that ultimately flowered into Earth Day.�
Nelson saw the enthusiasm used by college students protesting the anti-Vietnam war and decided to capitalize on this method to spread his environmental message.
This type of protest does not require a lot of knowledge about the issue being protested, but it requires a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
This method proved successful. Envirolink reported that the first Earth Day in 1970 rallied over 20 million Americans from around the country and mostly on college campuses to get involved in environmental "teach-ins." For the 20th anniversary in 1990 more than 200 million people in 141 countries participated worldwide
There is no doubt that the clean up in the 1970s was needed. Dangerous toxic pollutants had been allowed to run into waterways. The air was black with industrial pollution. The Environmental Protection Agency enforced needed changes and our world became cleaner and better.
But in the 1990s, we began to see how this environmental effort began shifting gears to achieve socialistic goals that go far beyond a clean earth.
Sustainable Development was introduced when the United States signed on to the Agenda 21 Programme in Rio de Janeiro at the 1992 Earth Summit. Following the Earth Summit, a global effort to take control of private resources was put into place under the guise of protecting and preserving our environment.
New clean water, air and land controls and standards arrived. These new restrictions forced many factories and industries to relocate or close down completely leaving millions of workers without jobs.
Increasing demands by unions and unrealistic environmental restrictions made moving to third world countries where the wage scale was low, and with fewer if any, environmental restrictions -- an attractive option to stockholders of major companies.
Incentive driven Smart Growth and Sustainable Development programs began to saturate the whole United States quickly appearing at the local levels. Although the program names may be different, the plan is the same and very few boards will refuse �free� money in the way of a grant. [to better understand Smart Growth and Sustainable Development see the DVD "Liberty or Sustainable Development"]
This did not happen by accident. It is the plan to redistribute the wealth of the United States to 3rd world nations.
Implementing Sustainable Development means:
To accomplish the implementation of Sustainable Development, the minds of tomorrow must be molded in our youth today. It is being done through our education system, television and in any sphere that a youth�s mind can be reached.
Freedom 21 in Santa Cruz has prepared a booklet Understanding Sustainable Development Agenda 21� with the above information, and they encourage all public officials to read and understand how this global plan is introduced locally in order for them to protect the people they were elected to serve.
Environmentalists have enough money behind their visions that their lofty goals are easily fulfilled into reality. Money and power can accomplish great tasks in promoting an agenda - and environmental groups have both.
But has environmentalism gone a step too far?
Recently in a speech by Dr. Eric R. Pianka at the University of Texas at Arlington before the Texas Academy of Science, he supposedly endorsed the airborne Ebola as an efficient means to eliminate 90 percent of the world�s population. According to reports, this speech was received with �enthusiastic and prolonged standing ovation.�
Reportedly, Pianka received more applause from a banquet hall filled with more than 400 people when the president of the Texas Academy of Science presented him with a plaque naming him 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist.
Pianka and the other left leaning scientists have declared what must be done to save �their Earth.� Is it only a matter of time until one of these scientists will go over the edge and become the �mad scientist� who has access to bio-chemicals and viruses and will decide it is time to rid the earth of its destructive population?
It has been reported that England�s Prince Philip made the statement �In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.�
Was the Terri Shiavo case a test for population control? Has Roe vs. Wade legislation assisted the depopulation cause with the killing of well over 40 million children. By promoting homosexuality in the minds of our youth, are their goals of preventing procreation succeeding?
These ways are morbid enough, but have we reached a new level of earth preservation by turning to global mass killing by releasing pandemic diseases?
Apparently God does not have a problem with population as He must have believed he had provided enough resources on earth to care for His people. His promise to Abraham was:
�I shall bless you abundantly and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky or the grains of sand on the seashore.� �Genesis 22:17,
is often compared to Communism. Ironically, April 22, 1970, the first
Earth Day, also marked the 100th Anniversary of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin's
