"How can anyone who truly believes in God and truly believes that He created this world not be an environmentalist?"

Given all the horror we are seeing in the world because of people who "truly believe in God", I would hope the discourse on environmental responsibility would not be based on such myths.

Even the idea of "replenish and subdue" or "have dominion over" are arrogant and reckless.

That "god said so" is NEVER a good reason for doing anything! Let's work out the ethics of environment using REASON, not appeals to fiction and myth.
