Who Am I

I am David Marinelli. I research the origin, meaning, purpose and destination of life. I also have a keen interest in ecology, wilderness as social order, biodiversity, wilding, wild habitat degradation and extinction of species.

We are the expression of a good God and are beholden to a higher moral order.

“…and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8: 31-32).

Ecology

Think of the rain and the sea that provide the water you drink

Think of all the species we share this Earth with and the common parents we shared with them hundreds of millions of years ago, and without which your biological body would not be standing here today
Think of this oasis of life, Earth in a solar system, afloat in a galaxy with 11 million suns, one is ours, amongst countless galaxies in the universe, our only home, made friendly and hospitable for us by nature

We owe a debt of gratitude and allegiance to the natural world

Taking back our personal reality in a symbolic world
