The Seven Wonders of Nature

Natural Seven Wonders

After setting up the biggest online voting poll ever for electing seven new wonders of the world, the swiss-canadian filmmaker Bernard Weber set up a new poll: the election of seven new wonders of nature on www.natural7wonders.com.

To my humble opinion, this contest is not so much about nature itself - nature can deal with herself, she doesn't need our approvement. This whole thing is much more about the image of nature. Because how on earth could I have any judgement upon all these natural sites that I never have visited? How should I rate the Grand Canyon above the Okavango river or even above the little bush behind the house I grew up that I used to play in? And what's next? The New Seven Wonders of the Universe?

We dont really want to conserve nature.

We want to conserve our image of nature.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
