Biocentrism vs. Anthropocentrism vs. another Centre

Friday, April 11th, 2008

I thought that Barbara Kay’s opinion piece in the National Post a couple of days ago made some good points about the biocentric view – placing nature at the centre – held by people like Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Watson apparently thinks that the earth’s population should be capped at 1 billion people (a reduction of more than 5 billion).

Some of the reader comments following the article at the above link argue for an athropocentric view – where humans are at the centre.

Meanwhile Psalm 24:1 talks about another Centre.
