Bolivian president Evo Morales led the UN to adopt April 22 as International Mother Earth Day two years ago, but that wasn’t enough. Now he wants the U.N. to adopt the “Laws of Mother Earth,” which would establish nature -- including all animals and the environment -- as living and deserving of the same rights as humans. Bolivia has already adopted these Laws, which confers 11 rights for nature and calls for the eradication of capitalism.
What’s behind this? A worldview, of course. Morales ideas come from an ancient pantheistic religion of the Andes region, Pachamama, which sees all of nature as divine. The Bolivian president wants a full integration of this religion throughout Bolivian society, and around the world.
Environmentalism is important, but environmentalism from a pantheistic worldview is very different than one from a Biblical worldview.
