Theological Ecology

Those who study the earth’s biosphere see life on this planet as a profound web of interconnecting organisms and forces.

Existence is relationship.

This knowledge will be perfected in the 21st century and demonstrate that the universe is mathematically fine-tuned with more precision than current scientists suspect. This precision will show that the universe has an intelligent design.

Nothing exists or subsists alone. The mathematical precision of this ubiquitous cooperation and unity comes from ontologically real, missing causal links. These causal “holes” mean that all processes are inherently discontinuous and must therefore get help from outside sources to continue their course and existence.

In humans, we see this outside support coming from the food we eat, the air we breathe and the external data coming into our five senses (mental food). We return (reciprocate) this material back to the outside world by defecation, exhalation and our actions.

The universe is literally held together by sharing.

This design has its source in theological principles. The ecosystem is a physical analog of God’s spiritual love (the essence of love is to share and unite). God created a world that requires its parts be dependent upon each other. When this principle is extended to human relationships, we get a harmonious and heavenly society. When it doesn’t, problems and disruptions occur.

Angels are the highest expression of this grand universal design. Love powers the universe!
