RUSH: I'm just going to tell you why I don't believe this stuff.
CALLER: Okay.

RUSH: I believe in Creation.

CALLER: Mmm-hmm.

RUSH: I believe in God.

This reminds me of an old story about one of Ronald Reagan's advisors. According to the liberal press, he once said we didn't need to worry about the environment because God was coming back soon, and this would happen before we destroyed the environment.

I don't know if the story is true or not, but Rush's dialog here is really scary. It's like a kid with matches and gasoline who has no fear because mommy always protects him.

By the way, does the word "dominion" mean anything to anyone? Does it imply any responsibility at all?

Thou hast given him dominion over the works of Thy hands;
Thou hast put all things under his feet.

James G Watt, who was Secretary for the Interior for a couple of years.

Bill Moyers was forced to apologize publicly when he claimed that Watt made the statement "After the last tree is felled, Christ will come back". In fact, one of Watt's detractors said it, in a caricature of his views.

Gen 1:26-28

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.



The term dominion can be simply meant as a type of stewardship of the earth.

"God gives mankind a second chance to use and preserve the resources He had so abundantly provided."
