Blog 9 - Preservation of Nature
Foltz in an effort to preserve nature has argued that until the beauty of nature is acknowledged in its numerous character the natural environment will not be granted the respect that she deserves as a locus of endless, inspiring, Godful beauty. That is, the mindless consumption and exploitation of nature can only be preserved through the aforementioned. But Snyder believes that this method is not widely practical, and if used, is most effective with Buddhism. I agree that the when it comes to Western culture the majority is not as fervent to the faith compared to the East. But, I think we should find away to make everyone use their concept of spirituality to associate with nature. If the majority can recognize this spirituality of nature, from their perspective, we will have more lobbyist for nature.
