Is “Mother Earth” Human, and Does “She” Have Rights?

I found this over at Fox News.

How blind and lost. 

United Nations diplomats on Wednesday will set aside pressing issues of international peace and security to devote an entire day debating the rights of “Mother Earth.” 

A bloc of mostly socialist governments lead by Bolivia have put the issue on the General Assembly agenda to discuss the creation of a U.N. treaty that would grant the same rights found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to Mother Nature. 

Treaty supporters want the establishment of legal systems to maintain balance between human rights and what they perceive as the inalienable rights of other members of the Earth community — plants, animals, and terrain. 

Communities and environmental activists would be given more legal power to monitor and control industries and development to ensure harmony between humans and nature.

    “”“Harmony with Nature,” as political grandstanding — an attempt to blame environmental degradation and climate change on capitalism. “”

    They worshiped the created rather than the Creator. Just another case of ‘natural law’ creeping in; the intellectual reasoning of fallen man rather than the revelation of almighty God. Signs of the times eh?

    Anything to do with “Mother Earth” is Wicca, as there was, is and always will be only God! Also, what is “Mother Earth” going to say or do when this happens:

    “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” II Peter 3:10 KJV

    “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.” Isaiah 65: 17 KJV

    “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” Revelation 21:1 KJV
