We are alienated from nature. More and more, nature is something that we watch and consume. Direct experience with nature is becoming a rarity. Instead we come to websites like this one and read about nature, look at pictures of nature or watch films devoted to nature. Other people go to school and become geneticists, biologists or the like that study nature from a distance. Children would rather be inside watching television or playing video games, or playing on the internet. In part, due to paranoid parents who are afraid to let their children explore the natural world—to walk along streams, climb trees, to play in awe and wonder at the world—a whole generation is now completely enmeshed in the technological system, oblivious to the wonders around them not created by human hands.
There is a time for learning, and this site is dedicated to pointing out a few things relating to Christian theology and the environment. It is dedicated to saying why you should turn your computer off and go outside. If the site does that for you, it has served a somewhat subversive purpose.
