We have come to the end of Christopher Southgate’s book The Groaning of Creation. We will have one final meeting coming up to summarize our final thoughts of the book.
In this session we discuss the impact of human overpopulation and if humans should or ought to intervene when an animal species is on the brink of extinction.
Here are our essays.
Is God Responsible for extinctions that happen throughout nature? Does he cause them? Is there something good that can come about through the extinction of a species? Or is it a total waste?
Yesterday, we discussed how extinction may not be a total loss, the role of humans in God’s creation, an eschatological ‘need’ for redemption, a response to Ivan Karamazov, and whether or not God played a direct role in the evolution of homo sapiens.
Our response are here.
