World 188 starts in the garden of Eden, each religion has its interpretation and Pantheism sees the ‘tree of knowledge of good and evil’, and by association Earth as god, therefore people worship it instead of the traditional god.
In doing so people from this faith become more closely connected with their god by expressing their faith through dress, similar to modern spirituality. In this world, the commandments were expanded to include calls to protect, provide for, and expand nature. This new interpretation was popularized by Vivekananda in his 1893 visit to the united states Parliament of the World’s Religions meeting.

pantheism was a popular religion?
lack of appreciation to Mother Earth
