Environmentalism is a religion. A growing number of people familiar with the issue today acknowledge the fundamental religious nature of the Environmentalist Movement. The religious devotion that many hold towards the Environmentalist claim about man-made global warming in the face the corruption and deception revealed in recent years illustrates the religious nature of Environmentalism. Even the few credible interpretations Environmentalism gives to scientific evidence aren’t the only interpretations available.
Science should be treated as a process for investigation and exploration, not as an absolutist religion. Christianity preserves this true nature of science, and Biblical Christianity offers a very different interpretation of the evidence than does Environmentalism in most cases. Christianity, for example, advances free market and private property principles over against heavy-handed, the-state-knows-best ideology for addressing many environmental concerns such as endangered species. Christianity advances principles of exploration, growth, scientific research and human freedom instead of economic decline, population control and political power for solving genuine environmental challenges.
“Environmentalism and the Death of Science” is the only Canadian book which tackles the religous nature of Environmentalism, and lays out a clear Biblical Christian alternative to Environmentalism. It is the book for Christians who want to love God and be good conservationists without being seduced by false religious ideals such as Preservationism and Environmentalism, which are themselves expressions of Pantheism and Humanism.
