Responsibility and the effect of moral pollution My understanding of one message from Day 2 is that the earth and world become morally polluted by disobedience to various mitzvot. I wonder , according to Torah, what specific effects does such moral pollution have on nature and the world, and does this moral responsibility apply only to Jews or can the rest of humanity be implicated beyond their responsibility to the Noahide laws, even if they are ignorant of these mitzvot? I ask this because the ancient Greeks believed that natural disasters such as famine, plague, drought, etc. were the result of the human committal of an act of hubris,so they would seek the Oracle of Delphi to discover the cause and cure.The direct relationship between physical disasters and human behavior was obviously apparent to the ancient Greeks, although their religion was pagan, and they did not understand it. Does Torah expect all human beings to be responsible for these mitzvot for peace to prevail as the Greek view might imply? Reply
