Neglecting Eden


With the latest discovery of fish, shrimp and coral species, including two new types of walking shark, researchers dub its water "Earth's richest seascape and the most biodiverse marine area in the world". And only months ago scientists in the Foja Mountain expedition found an abundant number of new species of plants and animals -- for hundreds of years have lived in tranquility, somehow been safeguarded from the greediness of "civilized" groups of Homo sapiens.

Maybe it's God's course of leaving a remnant of Eden on this part of the globe.

Adam and Eve had to surrender Eden for they had taken it for granted: their existence, their life in it, was subject to their obedience to their Creator.

We have been neglecting Eden. What do we expect?
