What ‘Earth Day’ is about

April 22, 2010 is the 40th anniversary of the Earth Day!

And, while I think that just about everyone who lives on Earth would like it to be a nice, happy, comfortable little planet – have you paused to think what Earth Day is really about?

Oh, sure – we are being told that it is a reminder ‘not to pollute’ and ‘to be good to the Earth’ and not to forget ‘Mother Earth’….

But, things  have a way of being more than they seem.

No – this is not ‘yet another conspiracy theory’ – mostly because I think that even though conspiracies are ‘fun’, most people are simply not disciplined enough to carry them out….

What I mean is that every message has its ‘obvious’ meaning – the one we perceive easily.  In addition, it also has a deeper message:  sometimes intentional, at other times it is just ‘stuff’ that ‘piggie-backs’ on that message…the transmisssion of ideas the originators of the message ‘took for granted’ and which ‘snuck in’ without them (and/or their audience) even being aware of it.  Once these subtle and sub-conscious bits are part of the message, any message, they necessarily affect the subconscious attitudes of the people who hear and accept the message’s ‘obvious’ meaning.

And, in my never-humble-opinion, the deep, subconscious message behind Earth Day is this:

Anthropocentrism and theocentrism are mutually exclusive...

‘Anthropocentrism’ and ‘theocentrism’ are mutually exclusive…
