Communist China’s officially atheist ideology is the cause of China’s destruction of the environment; because the atheist Chinese Communists are unwilling to submit humbly to any Truth which contradicts theirown personal superstitions of “economic development”. Communist China is – paradoxically – a very anti-scientific government, believing in its own Marxist-materialist-atheist superstitions even when they contradict science. That is why the material conditions, and the environment and ecology, of China are such a mess today – because of China’s superstitious materialism, because of the Communist Party’s refusal to submit to any higher Truth.
America – although nominally a mostly Christian country – contributes to this problem through the American habit of believing in material/economic “progress” as a kind of god/idol.
How Muslims, especially those living in democracy like Indonesia, can play major role in defending the ecology/environment, and thus set a good example for both China and America?
