Abstract and Keywords

Earth is proving to be a remarkable planet, and humans have deep roots in and entwined destinies with this wonderland Earth. Simultaneously, however, humans are remarkable on this remarkable planet, a wonder on wonderland Earth. But the foreboding challenge is that these spectacular humans, the sole moral agents on Earth, now jeopardize both themselves and their planet. Science and religion are equally needed, and strained, to bring salvation, to keep life on Earth sustainable. In the midst of its struggles, life has been ever ‘conserved’, as biologists find; life has been perpetually ‘redeemed’, as theologians find. This article holds that science and religion join to celebrate this saga of life, perennially generated and regenerated on this planet.

Keywords: Earth, home planet, science, religion, biology, theology
