ETA: There are two things wrong with this quote:
1. It’s overly optimistic. The men live to 50; the women die at 25 after bearing the 7 children
2. It personifies. I don’t believe Nature wants us dead; it just acts that way.
Being a person, I cannot believe in a personal God, either Earth Mother or Sky Father. If Nature were a person, it would be the sort of abusive parent whose rule is: “If I catch you not paying attention to me, I will hurt you. And I may hurt you anyway.” But the first step from paranoia to paranoid schizophrenia is taking it personally.
