The idea that Earth was a benevolent, living organism friendly to humans, providing all the elements for embodied life, and a warm, scented, beautifully coloured and protected haven, with soft grass underfoot, pleasing birdsong, cooling waters, magnificent scenery and a sky of glorious cobalt in the lonely freezing, deadly, radiation-filled pitch-black vacuum wasteland of empty space – has been proven to be a myth.
Richard Dawkins proved it by saying the Universe doesn’t care. It probably wants us to get healthy so it can eat us up.
Fact: kindness is uknown in the Universe. In the photo above, the fruit is way out of reach of the distressed child, terror of starvation etched on its face: what benevolent Mother Nature would inflict such torment? And there’s probably a wasp somewhere too. The Earth clearly hates us.
