Climate conference calls on goddess for help, according to an article in the Washington Post 29 Nov 2010. In her opening speech Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change invoked Ixchel the ancient Mayan jaguar goddess, who is also the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. Figueres said in her speech: “May she inspire you – because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools.”

She went on to say: “Excellencies, the goddess Ixchel would probably tell you that a tapestry is the result of the skilful interlacing of many threads. I am convinced that 20 years from now, we will admire the policy tapestry that you have woven together and think back fondly to Cancun and the inspiration of Ixchel.” The Washington Post article ends with “Two weeks from now, we’ll have a sense of whether Ixchel – and the delegates – were listening to Figueres’ appeal.”

Editorial Comment: Since the only God who matters is the One who has the power to back up His claims because He created the heavens and the earth, and is therefore in control of the climate, we recommend that Christiana Figueres and the Washington Post should both take notice of the psalmist who wrote 3000 years ago that man-made gods may have carved ears, but they cannot hear our prayers. (Psalm 115:6) Therefore, it is pointless to call on them. This report is also a reminder about the fact that climate change agenda has become largely pagan humanist in its orientation – not scientific. (Ref. paganism, politics, climate change)
