Ken Wilber on the Deity of Nature (or Not)

“If nature (via evolution) produced humans, and humans produced the ozone hole, then didn’t nature produce the ozone hole? If not, then there is some part of humans that is not part of nature, and therefore nature cannot be the ultimate ground of existence. Nature cannot be a genuine God or Goddess or Spirit — because nature is clearly not all-inclusive and thus must simply be a smaller slice of a much bigger pie.”

    A good, logical, brief rejoinder to hardcore evolutionists. Need more quotes like this one published on apologetic sites.

    The irony of the above comment is that I think Wilber is a “hardcore evolutionist” — albeit one steeped in a mystical understanding of the kosmos.
