End of Nature Judeo Christian Tradition of God Reading Question

Don’t copy the answer directly from the reading. Use your own largesse.

Answer each question in its entirety and get every point.

Question 1

Bill McKibben spends considerable time likening “Nature” to “God”, and yet proclaims that the Judeo-Christian tradition of God “bears an immense burden of guilt for” the end of nature. Why?

Question 2

In the reading, McKibben suggests that, similar to the idea that the Holocaust prompted a great many people to agree with Nietzsche that “God is dead”, “the end of nature” is doing the same. Why?

Question 3

Why, as McKibben elucidates, does the end of nature make humans feel “sad”?

Question 4

In the closing paragraphs of the reading, McKibben articulates his main theme: that the end of nature is “lonely”. Why, in your estimation, does he come to this conclusion? Additionally, in your opinion, what are some limitations to his argument, and to the narrative he has crafted in this chapter?
