Reconstruction of Religion and Ecology Discourses

  • Hardiansyah, Suteja

Various research of experts prove that the existence of environmental sustainability in danger significantly. Unlike the non-ecological problems, the ecological crisis can not be ignored. Human passivity and activity in response to these problems will determine the story way of environmental ecosystems. Religion as a worldview in its application aims to promote the good of life, can not evade the challenge of the contemporary ecological crisis. This paper will show that religion is inherently having an attitude of respect toward nature. For religion, nature and humans is the presence of The Sacred locus. Thus, man and nature in the light of religion is a thing equal; are both a locus of the Sacred. Basically, ecological crisis in the light of modernization is not rooted in religion an sich. There are other significant factors, namely industrialization, economy, social-culture, behavioral, interaction of agents, politics and technology as an extension of science.
