Both science and religion find a wonderland Earth. Biblical faith has the conviction that species originate when God ordered earth to "bring forth swarms of living creatures." We know that biodiversity today much better than did they, but Bible writers would have rejoiced in this fuller creation. The Hebrews found a promised land; today we can think of an Earth with promise. Both science and religion encounter nature with awe: an awe-full sublime.
