I must disagree, with respect, to this comment.  The various religions throughout the world all begin with such cryptic stories, and yet all are so broad they truly point to reason and not morality, but ETHICS or better yet "a way of being" that blends perfectly with how science is teaching us how to live. The whole global warming thing is ingrained in "waste not, want not", "be stewards", Love my world(s) As I Love You".  And that's just a sampling, the Yaqui and other "Tribes" and always Earth freindly.  It is merely a mis-interpretation of the current wave of U.S. Christian faith that is so prevelant and dominant in the media that askews the truth.
