Conceited Apes

I have an understanding of who and what I am, which is a part of the earth. So that’s what I identify with, is the planet as a whole.

We come out of the earth and go back into the earth. What gives me great joy is knowing that everything around; rivers, mountains… is a part of my body.

Almost all theological thought is anthropocentric and I just cannot buy into the anthropocentric ideology. Basically we’re a bunch of conceited apes.
