The goal of this forum topic is to discuss the differences between Anthropocentrism and Ecocentrism. I also want to see how YOU stand in this topic.

I am looking forward to seeing the differences you all come up with, and seeing how you all discuss this amongst each other.

Vaarka swung his sword at the mod. However, since I am now incorporeal, he ends up accidentally striking the entire American landmass (It's a REALLY bastard sword), destroying both continents. Spiders are now at 50% of capacity.

It is kind of hard to be a supporter of ecocentrism with the knowledge that Nature has caused millions of species to become extinct before man ever drew breath; also with the fact that Nature will surely allow the earth to just quietly die along with any ecosystem "protected" when the sun burns out. So why is Nature important again?
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.

Anthropomorphism. In the context of people first, the environment actually is put first fairly often, because we're heavily dependent on it. But our relationship with the environment should still take into effect how it affects us before it considers anything else.
"Whatever else is evil, the pride of a good mother in the beauty of her daughter is good. It is one of those adamantine tendernesses which are the touchstones of every age and race. If other things are against it, other things must go down. If landlords and laws and sciences are against it, landlords and laws and sciences must go down. With the red hair of one she-urchin in the gutter I will set fire to all modern civilization."
