The Gaia Hypothesis from James Lovelock is something which I favour a lot. This is a Greek name but the idea is basically that planet Earth is a living organism, with thoughts, feelings and moods hence she can react to being hurt and can also have moods and temperaments just like any other creature. This basically makes the Earth a host while we are like parasites, and very harmful parasites at that. Not very reassuring for us in the long term unless we do something about it. This would make the Earth into a being which needs to be worshipped. Which is basically what we have to do.
