Nature cannot be destroyed by humanity. Nature is always superior; it shall always prevail. Humans, under the spell of chemistry, physics, and technology, have fallen out of touch with nature and forgotten how to restrain their overconfidence. The result is not the destruction of nature, but the exact opposite. Nature is irritated, and stirred up in its powers to such a degree that it certainly destroys those who endeavor to escape its powers. The destruction of nature is not humanity's destruction of nature. The destruction of nature is nature's destruction of humanity. This puts a question on the developing science, especially, on the developing field of chemistry, regarding the use of chemicals. Naturopathy is touted to stand in the center of new idolatry, but the theology of the same, remains to be understood.
