From The Year of the Flood, by Margaret Atwood

"Do we deserve this Love by which God maintains our Cosmos? Do we deserve it as a Species? We have taken the World given to us and carelessly destroyed its fabric and its Creatures. Other religions have taught that this World is to be rolled up like a scroll and burnt to nothingness, and that a new heaven and a new Earth will then appear. But why would God give us another Earth when we have mistreated this one so badly?"
