God Is Not A Super Hero

There is a young woman named, Jenifer with a stage four cancer…..I have joined a prayer chain for her.  When you see a beautiful young woman who has lost her hair and is going through the struggle to live many would ask, “How can God let that happen?”  God didn’t let it happen – we did:

We’ve thrown beer cans in the river, and put power lines overhead.

Our lakes are getting greener and the fish are floating dead.

There goes a load of concrete to pave another street.

Won’t be long before there’s no ground beneath our feet.

We call it progress.

We came upon God’s green Earth to plunder and deface,

and when we’re finished here on Earth we’ll foul up outer space.

Strip mine on the mountain cut down all the trees.

Make ‘em into paper for blowing in the breeze.

The litter bags are empty in all our smoky cars.

Our trails are blazed with wrappers from our plastic candy bars.

We call it progress…

We did it. God did not call a prophet to the mountain to give out the formula for polyvinyl chloride – plastic is man-made. So are the phthalates that contaminate everything from teething rings to IV bags.

God did not invent DDT, Agent Orange and Roundup – or any of the other more than 500 toxic substances listed by the EPA as a cause for cancer that are still permitted to be used in essential products we need every day. God did not go into the pharmaceutical board rooms to point out that there is more money in treating than in curing. God never said that taking genes from a frog and putting them in a potato would improve agriculture.  Above all God did not give us the dogmatic neo-Darwin materialistic paradigm that we have allowed to distort our laws, our science, our education and our very concept of reality. We did this. God is not a Super Hero who is supposed to swoop in and save us from the consequences of our choices.  God will help us heal ourselves and our planet, but until we change our priorities we will remain the invasive species. We are our greatest threat to health and life.
