A Naturalistic Fairy Tale-Part XIV

We must skip ahead a bit. To the time when non-anthropogenic global warming did run its course. It did become quite hot, killing off most creatures. But there did exist, a “last refuge,” an Island for the nurturing of life.1 Although global warming now, is most certainly, and definitely related to the sins of man against the Earth, it was related to natural processes then (of which man is not a part of). Alas, 250 million years ago, did Global Warming extinguish 95% of life in the oceans and 70% on land. Thank Science there were Islands of life that did survive. And though the fossil record did nearly disappear during this time, we did find at least one Island where a fully-formed marine ecosystem did continue to exist. It is to this massive death that we do owe our lives–just enough death to promote life to the greatest extent (Praise Science).

  1. Although global warming now, is most certainly, and definitely related to the sins of man against the Earth, it was related to natural processes then (of which man is not a part of).

    You bring up an interesting point here!

    A) If everything exists due to natural process, or NO GOD, then natural process rules: right?

    B) If natural process rules, then how can man be responsible for global warming (except in a natural way: either harmful or beneficial), which is due to the natural process and therefore, very natural?

    C) Yet, I hear advocates of naturalism claiming that man is destroying his environment. How can that be, when man is merely part of a natural process that he doesn’t control, nor fully understand?

    D) In fact, according to naturalists, man is created by natural forces, so how can he control his natural surroundings which created him?

    E) Is naturally created man more powerful than the natural process which created him? If so, how can that be?

    F) Is the natural process not “fit” enough to “survive” the destructive nature of its own creation, man?
