Frank Grimaldi (4/25, Letters) seems to think the Bible gives us license to destroy the Earth. He states that Genesis gives man “dominion over this creation,” and therefore we can do with it what we will.
It’s true that we seem to have dominion over the plants and animals. But we don’t have control over the laws of nature — one law being the law of gravitation, which means we are more or less stuck here on this planet.
If we don’t find a way to limit population growth, Earth will become a barren sewer and our descendants will end up killing each other over food and water.
Maybe that is the fate of humanity, but you can’t blame some optimists for thinking that we are intelligent enough to live in harmony with nature.
