Synopsis

Making God Laugh examines the fundamentalist claim that we can know what God knows and that we can, therefore, speak with divine authority about God's plans for us and for the world. Such arrogance must surely make God laugh! But its effects are no laughing matter. Christians have long understood themselves to be at the centre of the universe, an understanding which has legitimised the exploitation of the earth's natural resources. That exploitation has now reached alarming proportions. Anne Primvesi argues that the time has come to replace human arrogance with ecological humility and a scientific understanding of ourselves as interdependent members of the whole community of life on earth.
