i think MT was a true seeker--not that he thot he had the answers.  he
satirized the trappings of faith elsewhere, too, but here he shows
anger /in belief/ about the state of things in the earth, the nature of
humankind, God's pinnacle of creation. he's hurling a vitriolic
challenge to the creator for blowing it, imo, but i haven't read
everything of T's.  his letter to the earth was brilliant, and he was
speaking /God's/ truth there.
