Hard to believe, but this nonsense is celebrating its 41st birthday. Those of us with any sense have largely ignored it because we mistakenly believed that only children would take it seriously we didnt believe that any sentient adult would!

Each year, Earth Day -- April 22 -- marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

Earth Day is the worship of nature rather than Natures God. Though touted as, somehow, NEW, worship of the earth is likely the oldest religion on earth. Born of child-like ignorance, it has survived centuries and is, once again, robust and thriving among those people of earth who have lost their way and have reclaimed this form of paganism Earth Day, The High Holy Day of Paganism | The Silent Majority Earth Day, The High Holy Day of Paganism | The Silent Majority 3. Michael Crichton, in his Environmentalism as Religion remarks, made before the Commonwealth Club, in San Francisco in 2003, summed it all up. The believers in environmentalism believe and preach that we should live in unity with nature, or the environment. They believe that in the beginning we did. They believe that we are now living in sin because we have polluted the earth. We will be visited with a judgment day and the judgment will be death, for the whole planet, unless we repent, (which means to turn around and go the other way) and make our way back to sustainability. You see, in the environmentalism religion, sustainability IS salvation. Michael Crichton 4. On the excellent webcast Uncommon Knowledge, Czech president Václav Klaus recently compared two ideologies that were structurally very similar. They are against individual freedom. They are in favor of centralistic masterminding of our fates. They are both very similar in telling us what to do, how to live, how to behave, what to eat, how to travel, what we can do and what we cannot do. The first of Klauss two ideologies was Communisma system with which he was deeply familiar, having participated in the Velvet Revolution in 1989. The second was environmentalism.

It is no accident that April 22, Earth Day, is also the birth date of Vladimir Lenin, an acolyte of Karl Marx, the lunatic who invented communism as an alternative to capitalism. Earth Day is naked communism. To begin, it substitutes a worship of the Earth, Gaia, for the worship of God, creator of the universe and the instructor of moral behavior for mankind. The Earth does not demand a moral code of personal behavior. While America was established to ensure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, environmentalism exists to exert more and more control over our lives by limiting our choices, our liberty.

In our contemporary era, Earth Day has become the modern celebration of Gaia. Partakers of this event, whether aware of it or not, play off the ancient pagan beliefs of a Universal Mother. Like the sacred oaths taken in her name, todays Earth Day celebrants sign environmental petitions, make pledges, and announce resolutions in support of Mother Earth. And like the old sacrifices to the deity, todays Earth Day practitioners offer sacrifices of good works to the planet. Not only is the Earth a deity to be venerated, but the Earth itself as the representative and embodiment of the Goddess has become a modern day idol.
