This is an excerpt from the two-part, 60-minute DVD. In it, Daniel Quinn proposes that the modern environmental crisis has its origins in the agricultural revolution that began about ten thousand years ago. At that time, humans developed a vision of themselves as the pinnacle of creation --a species for whom the entire earth was intended. salvation depends upon our reclaiming our ability to live in harmony with the natural world. Daniel Quinn is the prize-winning author of the controversial best-seller Ishmael, The Story of B and Providence.
