Its atheism has undoubtedly been one of the great weaknesses of Marxism in its bid to gain a hold on the human mind. Atheism is unnatural to the human condition and Western atheism has always been little more than a reaction against Christianity but not a permanent option for the masses. Atheism is a way station to a completely non-Christian religion. Pantheistic Marxism will be the next great challenge to Christianity - and maybe the last before the return of Christ.

Bolivia's president Morales, having achieved the establishment of pantheism as his country's official religion, has taken his religious agenda to the UN, which has acceded to his wishes by establishing April 22 as Mother Earth Day, thus establishing the worship of the goddess Pachamama (known as Gaia in other circles).Normally, one would react to a UN resolution giving goddess Mother Earth the same rights as humans with a yawn. But Morales, his Green supporters, fellow globalists, believers in liberation theology and the Marxist dialectic take the resolution quite seriously, as the UN is seen as an international vehicle for accomplishing goals long in the making.One would suppose the UN would be committed to cultural and religious diversity, eschewing the establishment of a global religion, given the fact it has representatives from countries around the world. But as it turns out, the UN has long had an interest in a global government and universal religion.
Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca said Bolivia's traditional indigenous respect for the Pachamama was vital to prevent climate change. "Our grandparents taught us that we belong to a big family of plants and animals. We believe that everything in the planet forms part of a big family. We indigenous people can contribute to solving the energy, climate, food and financial crises with our values," he said.
Little opposition is expected to the law being passed because President Evo Morales's ruling party, the Movement Towards Socialism, enjoys a comfortable majority in both houses of parliament.- - snip - -
Bolivia is struggling to cope with rising temperatures, melting glaciers and more extreme weather events including more frequent floods, droughts, frosts and mudslides.
Research by glaciologist Edson Ramirez of San Andres University in the capital city, La Paz, suggests temperatures have been rising steadily for 60 years and started to accelerate in 1979. They are now on course to rise a further 3.5-4C over the next 100 years. This would turn much of Bolivia into a desert.
Most glaciers below 5,000m are expected to disappear completely within 20 years, leaving Bolivia with a much smaller ice cap. Scientists say this will lead to a crisis in farming and water shortages in cities such as La Paz and El Alto.
Evo Morales, Latin America's first indigenous president, has become an outspoken critic in the UN of industrialised countries which are not prepared to hold temperatures to a 1C rise.
You can see how the typical global warming alarmism, taken for granted by The Guardian, is used as the excuse for the establishment of a new religion. Just below the surface is a rabid anti-capitalism and under that is a rejection of all historical monotheisms and the whole concept of the fall into sin and the need for Divine redemption. With pantheism, there is no original sin, just sins, which can be atoned for and corrected by social conditioning and bureaucratic management of behavior.
At first it was called "Earth Day" but the name used by the United Nations has now been changed to "Mother Earth Day" so as to personalize and deify the Earth itself. See the UN Declaration of Mother Earth Day 2011 here. For an example of the alliance of Western left-wing activists working with the UN, Bolivia, and various Marxist and environmental groups, take note of this report:
Canadian activist Maude Barlow is among global environmentalists backing the drive with a book the group will launch in New York during the UN debate: Nature Has Rights.
"It's going to have huge resonance around the world," Barlow said of the campaign. "It's going to start first with these southern countries trying to protect their land and their people from exploitation, but I think it will be grabbed onto by communities in our countries, for example, fighting the tarsands in Alberta."
Long before she was an "environmentalist" Maude Barlow was a leading socialist agitator and feminist in Canada. There is a flowing together of the feminist, neopagan, Marxist, and environmentalist movements into what is quickly becoming a new religion - one which could aptly be named "Pantheistic Marxism.
