So Mother Earth is Punishing Us with COVID-19

When riding the trails of social media, it is not surprising to find some mighty strange ideas about COVID-19. An actor thinks that Earth is punishing us for our environmental crimes. Idris Elba is promoting a pagan view of Earth as a living thing, which has grown in popularity even in evolutionary circles (see "More Gaia Paganism in Evolution"). Earth is not an entity, old son.

An actor believes that COVID-19 is Earth punishing us. This is a pagan idea, and scientific facts as well as a creation worldview show otherwise.

It is interesting that Elba is "race conscious" by stating the obvious: black people can get the virus. His worldview probably excludes the biblical fact that there are no races. Ethnic groups, sure. But we're all the same race.

It is amazing to this child that people foolishly look to uninformed but highly opinionated celebrities for medical and political advice. Since Earth is not a living being, it cannot decide to make a virus to punish us. Elba does not indicate how he knows that the pagan deity chose to make this virus, and why it was made. Actually, COVID-19 fits into Darwinian mythology, but as a punishment humanity, it fails because most people survive. We did not hear such foolish claims about Earth punishing us with other, more deadly, viruses. For far more rational information, see "How COVID-19 Started and Where It’s Going". (I've seen similar remarks from global warming cultists.) This is not a time to be making up your own "facts", people.
English actor Idris Elba believes the COVID-19 virus is a defensive action by the Earth against the harm humanity is doing to it.

Elba and his wife have both tested positive for the virus but have not shown any symptoms.2 In a video interview with Oprah Winfrey, the actor said, “Our world has been taking a kicking. We have damaged our world and it’s no surprise that our world is reacting to the human race.”

Although Elba didn’t explicitly say so, it seems he was referring to environmental damage caused by pollution and/or “climate change.” He compared the Earth to an organism attempting to defend itself against an infection. He also said,
