Man and Mother Nature
John J. Mulhall
Man currently stands at the apex of his remarkable ascent and power; master of all he surveys and unchallenged by any other species he shares the planet with. Whether he believes his ascent was divinely ordained by an omnipotent being in the sky called God, or that he evolved from a remote simian ancestor, he has turned his back on Mother Nature who first gave him life. In Man and Mother Nature, John J. Mulhall eloquently sets out to prove that mankind's rise was facilitated by the immutable laws of nature, which still control his thoughts and actions. Man is not in control of his destiny. He is merely a puppet in the hands of Mother Nature who influences his thoughts and his actions, and has done since he first stood on two legs and gazed up at the sky. Therein lies his legacy, and his destiny.
