The Land Shall Mourn

“There is no God and we are his prophets.”
― spoken by Ely, an old man the father and son meet on the road in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road

In the process of removing God from this world will we abuse our ecosystem to the point of environmental catastrophe? It would appear so in Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic novel The Road.

The Road Protagonists: A father and his son. They walk alone through a scorched America. These two and a few other hungry souls are the only things moving in the ravaged landscape save for the ash in the wind. Stones crack in the cold created by sunlight-blocking ash. Snow is gray.

The Road Antagonist: The world and everyone living in it.

“It is implied throughout The Road that the apocalypse that has shrouded the bleakest of all landscapes was brought about by us, by humanity. That we authored this environmental catastrophe through thoughtless pillaging of resources laid before us. We upset the balance of our ecosystem. And that by extension, we have removed God from this world.”

Christopher C. King. “God’s Silence, Humanity’s Deafness: On Cormac McCarthy’s Two New Novels.” Oxford American, Spring 2023, p.102

Do we prophecy of our own destruction and the extinction of the planet when we say there is no God?

Does playing God with science mean the world will be saved? Would creating a ‘perfect race’ through AI and genetic manipulation save the world? That doesn’t appear to be the case in the deep-space terror movie Alien Covenant unless you think a perfect creation is a face-hugging parasitoid

Peter Weyland, founder and owner of Weyland Corporation, creates an android. The android chooses the name “David” for himself after observing Michelangelo’s statue.

To find the fountain of youth, Weyland finances a voyage into deep space (Prometheus to LV-223) to search for mankind’s creator. In the process we learn that androids, like the humans that programmed them, can become narcissistic, unhinged and murderous (the most efficient means to a selfish end).

“[Michael] Fassbender plays both the kindly android Walter and his twisted, civilization-ending “brother” David. David can create (and uses that talent to engineer alien life), while Walter cannot — an intentional limitation in his programming. But in a moving and seductive scene that’s been described as possibly homoerotic, David teaches Walter the flute, declaring “you have symphonies in you, brother!” Later, the pair share a kiss, with David telling Walter no one will ever love like he does — before attempting to kill him.”

Couch, Aaron. “’Alien: Covenant’ Screenwriter on the Michael Fassbender Scene That ‘Easily Could Have Gone Wrong.’” The Hollywood Reporter, The Hollywood Reporter, 17 Apr. 2023

Long story cut way short: android David does away with the kindly Walter android and becomes pseudo-Walter. He boards the colonization ship Covenant as Walter. He does this to continue his face-hugging parasitoid creation project, begun on LV-223, on Origae-6. David freezes his regurgitated face-hugger embryos, tucks in the last of the crew’s survivors and heads to the helm. On his way, David requests Richard Wagner, Das Rheingold, Act Two, The Entry of the Gods into Valhalla. David, with an inflated sense of self from having dealt with everything that would stop him, views himself as a God-level creator.

There are those around us with a similar God-complex. They are easy to spot in history and they are easy to spot in everyday life. They walk around with an attitude of extreme entitlement and arrogance. They act with grandiosity, bullying, exploitation, gaslighting, and to isolate and destroy their opponents. They build relationships that serve them and refuse to take responsibility for their actions.

Speaking of God complexes and creating face-hugging monsters, the extremely arrogant Anthony Fauci, the former NIH director – the deceptive Francis Collins, and the CCP played God with bio-weapons. And that led to the release of COVID and that led to the wearing of masks.

What do we know this Earth Day? Do we know what mankind is capable of?

If you have lived just 20 years, all you may know are the COVID and “anthropogenic climate crisis!” narratives. Live to seventy and you see mankind longing for and creating weapons of mass destruction and instigating one war after another in a desire to control territories, resources and humans. Live to seventy and you see mankind creating one crisis after another to transfer money and power to the State.

Is mankind creating an environmental catastrophe or is it that the gods of this world are plundering the resources of the earth and humanity with Green Energy policies that in effect transfer money and power to a few whilst doing nothing to affect the climate and drastically affecting to the negative human flourishing?

Is it OK for the gods of this world to create bio-weapon viruses in their conquest of the earth? Is it OK that the gods of this world produce Frankenstein-like creations with gene mutations in their quest to be god-like creators and AI implants to obtain eternal life for the brain? (cf. Alcasan in C.S. Lewis’ The Hideous Strength. His guillotined head becomes the host for, it seems, Satan.)

Would you agree? If man is a godless soulless creature, a mere chemical phenomenon with no moral center, then all kinds of evil and suffering are possible. The scenarios presented in The Road and Alien Covenant indicate that man knows well the outcome of man without God and man as his own god.

If man is made in the image of God, what does that mean?

It means that we look after God’s temple-cosmos creation not as self-appointed gods but as co-workers with God. As such, we do not exploit and ravage the earth or each other but operate with wisdom and love.  These last are not church words that are meaningless in the ‘real’ world.

For us to “Subdue the earth, in the context of the Genesis creation account, means to continue adding form and function to what God has started. For instance, we read in the Genesis account and later in the “Creation Psalm” (104) that God directed “the waters” for the benefit of His creation. Irrigation and water management are examples of humans likewise bringing form and function to creation for the benefit of many.

Psalm 104: 9-13 (Emphasis mine.):

You set a boundary that they [the waters] may not pass,
    so that they might not again cover the earth.

10 You make springs gush forth in the valleys;
    they flow between the hills,
11 giving drink to every wild animal;
    the wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By the streams the birds of the air have their habitation;
    they sing among the branches.
13 From your lofty abode you water the mountains;
    the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.

Wisdom and love perspective: We are part of God’s creation and yet we are to rule over creation as God rules over creation – with love and care. You may feel that God is an absent landlord, but consider that that our image of God designation confirms that God has assigned us the task to care for the works of His hands with the work of our hands. That we receive the Holy Spirit when we believe and are baptized means that we have communication with God. Wisdom and love are imparted to us so that we may act with wisdom and love in the ‘real’ world. Our eyes are opened to God’s view of the cosmos.

God sees us as one creature among many.

“While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember that everyone else and everything else are also God’s creation.” – Maya Angelou

Science and technology before the late twentieth century had splendidly humanitarian aims, but they also had a dangerously anthropocentric tendency that got us into the way of thinking about nature that has proved so disastrous. By viewing the other creatures as valuable only for our sake, only as resources, we have got to the self-defeating point of wasting, spoiling and exhausting the resources. It just isn’t good enough to see environmental issues as about preserving nature for us to use or enjoy. We need to recover the sense that other creatures have intrinsic value. It’s just good that they exist.

The Community of Creation – a sermon preached at St Edward’s church, Cambridge, 28 April 2012 by Richard Bauckham

Therefore, the land shall mourn. —Hosea 4:3

Creation has been groaning and lamenting the effects of mankind’s evil right up to the present time. In McCarthy’s The Road creation’s redemption never comes. Blame for the devastation, by at least one person, has been passed on to a perception of God’s absence: “There is no God and we are his prophets.”

What does redemption look like? It begins by acknowledging that we live in an interconnected and interdependent world.  When one part of creation suffers, we suffer.  

When we acknowledge that there is a problem that needs to be addressed, we look for ways to address the problem without doing harm to others and the planet. We study the problem without media intervention. We find reliable sources. We don’t make demands. We make positive recommendations and, when possible, take steps to enable ourselves and others to produce a solution.

All of creation – God-imaged men and women and flora and fauna and sea monsters and behemoths and galaxies and planets and weather and insects (not Alien xenomorphs) –is to reflect the “good” form and function given it by the Creator and the loving care God and his co-workers provide. 

Like it or not, all things since the Big Bang have worked together for the glory of God, not the glory of men. We can be in sync with that or with The Road.

Psalm 148

Praise for God’s Universal Glory

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his host!

Praise him, sun and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars!
Praise him, you highest heavens
    and you waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for he commanded and they were created.
He established them forever and ever;
    he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you sea monsters and all deeps,
fire and hail, snow and frost,
    stormy wind fulfilling his command!

Mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars!
10 Wild animals and all cattle,
    creeping things and flying birds!

11 Kings of the earth and all peoples,
    princes and all rulers of the earth!
12 Young men and women alike,
    old and young together!

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his glory is above earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up a horn for his people,
    praise for all his faithful,
    for the people of Israel who are close to him.
Praise the Lord!

INDIANAPOLIS — A loud boom and bright flash rocked central Indiana on Friday night, and experts believe it was caused by a meteor.

Dr. Brian Murphy, the director of the Holcomb Observatory and Planetarium in Indianapolis, discussed the reports with 13News and said a meteor was the likely source. 

“This sounds like it was a fireball, which is a relatively large object,” he said, like a large rock entering the atmosphere.

You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators.
