The article provides a brief analysis of the Gaia hypothesis and expands the biblical integration component of Dr. Jeff Zweerink's lead article.
Prior to writing the article, I thought the Gaia hypothesis was pure and simple Earth worship. I discovered, however, there is a "weak" form of the Gaia hypothesis that simply involves the scientific observation that the Earth's conditions have been adjusted over time to accommodate new life forms. I think it could be used as a form of a design argument. See what you think.
