This worries me, because as much as I respect the 15,000 years' worth of religious ideation on the divinity of the earth mother, I don't see a practical value to this worship. Yet I think I may find personal satisfaction therein, which means I may need to move to the wilderness and become a forest witch.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

There's something majestic and inspiring about Earth! There's nothing wrong with enjoying it. In that way it definitely feels religious.

A planet that is actively trying to kill its inhabitants in a million different ways, and yet makes them fully dependent upon it, doesn't deserve anybody's worship. If you described your real mom like that, I'd tell you to stay the hell away from your mom.

Is the planet actively trying to kill us? Feels more like the other way around. I mean, this is no The Fifth Season.

Volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, avalanches, etc. The only things that are threatened by human activity like habitat destruction and pollution are living things, including ourselves. The planet itself is in no danger from us.

Well, that depends on what you classify as "the planet." If it is just a bunch of rock, then sure, it's not in danger. But it's not just that.

It's mostly rock, but there's a little water and an atomsphere on top.
