Happy Earth Day Birthday, Comrade Lenin

It's no accident that Earth Day is on Lenin's Birthday. It's more than just an observation of caring for the environment, and the biblical view is brushed aside.

Партия Ленина - сила народная
Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт!

Today is the birthday of Ленин — Lenin.

Looks like I went "Russian" into this post. I won't get high "Marx" for it...

More commonly, it is celebrated worldwide as "Earth Day". It is a multifaceted. One one level, it is great to take notice of our environment and make personal choices to keep things clean. It is difficult to image any thinking person who is opposed to such things, and most people seem to be observing it with good intentions.

Earth Day is also observed by pagans [12], and there is other planet-loving wackiness, too [3, 4].

But another level is more insidious. This involves government intrusion, taxation, regulation, political lunacy and more. It is strange that what should be a simple "take care of your planet, please" message is intertwined with extreme leftist politics [5], [6], including the politically-motivated unscientific "global climate change" fraud [7, 8].

Why is that?

People promote Earth Day, and are unaware of its origins. The significance of the date of the first Earth Day (April 22, 1970) is lost on them [9] or simply denied. No, it is not just a coincidence that it is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lenin. The Communist leaders hated God, Jews and Christians. Karl Marx embraced Darwinism as the natural science version of their political philosophies; evolution gave communism more strength [10].

Those with power and influence who advocate Earth Day should actually be happy to deal with believing Christians and Jews because we have a mandate from the Creator to take care of his creation!  [11]
