What is an "Earth Religion"?
The term earth religion encompasses any religion that worships the earth, nature or fertility gods or goddesses. There is an array of groups and beliefs that fall under earth religion, such as animism, which is the worldview that all living entities (plants, animals, and humans) possess a spirit, and pantheism, which takes a varied approach to the importance and purpose of the earth, and man's relationship with the planet.
Several of the core statements of earth religions deal with the connectivity humans share with the planet, declaring that "all matter, energy, and life are an interconnected unity of which we are an inseparable part" and "we are an integral part of Nature, which we should cherish, revere and preserve in all its magnificent beauty and diversity".
