Morrie Pongratz will present the third installment of the Los Alamos Faith and Science Forum’s summer series Wednesday, June 14.
The theme of the talks is “Hope: Science, Religion and the Future”. In this third presentation we encounter “evolution” and discuss the impact of Darwin’s work on our concept of God and the cosmos. The talk will highlight the insights of the scientist and theologian, Teilhard de Chardin, S.J., the author of “The Phenomenon of Man”.
The talk will also introduce the work of Georgetown University’s Distinguished Research Professor John Haught, author of “God After Darwin”. Professor Haught will give talks at 7 p.m., June 22-23, 2017, in Fuller Lodge, 2132 Central Avenue, Los Alamos, NM.
The meetings will follow our usual format: light supper at 6 p.m., talk at 6:30 p.m., followed by questions for the speaker and then table discussions. These talks will be in the Fellowship Hall of the Unitarian Church (1738 N Sage Loop in Los Alamos.
