    is spectacularly uninterested in an afterlife.  The covenants God made with Abraham say NOTHING about that.  If the basis for saying evolution discredits religion is that it discredits an afterlife, ancient Israelite religion is untouched.  Most Jewish positions I am familiar with are also fairly unconcerned with life after death.  The vast majority of feminist theologians - Christian and post-Christian - blatantly condemn concerns with afterlife as a case of overwrought egoism.

    As for contemporary liberal religions being an obstacle to environmental ethics, I suggest you do the research before you make the claim.  There are plenty of religious folk out there making religious cases for environmental ethics, and faith communities who are putting it into action.

    One example.  There's more.
