Los Alamos Faith & Science Forum Presents Patrick Berg, MD, Maj, USAF On The Origin Of Life Wednesday June 29


In 1802, William Paley published his famous watch analogy in Natural Theology. He asserted that if a watch is found in an open field, “the inference we think is inevitable, (is) that the watch must have had a maker – that there must have existed, at some time and at some place or other … an artificer who formed it.”

He reviewed the complexity of human anatomy, as well as animals and plants, based on scientific understanding at the time. Seeing complexity far beyond a watch in plants, animals, and human anatomy, he concluded that there is a Creator.

Paley’s idea was not new. From the Read More

Fr. Glenn: Back And Forth

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

Let’s see … did anything notable happen this week? Hmmm … let’s think.

Ah, yes … the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health/Roe v. Wade overturn by the Supreme Court—celebration for some, infuriating for others. But, no matter which side one falls on, we know one thing for certain: it is not the last we’ll hear of the debate; quite the contrary. Because of the extreme polarity of the division, it will be a battle that will likely go on—as it already has—for decades (centuries?) to come.

The Dobbs decision is an interesting (rather long) read as it goes through the reasoning of the court. Read More

LAPD began 2022 with an emphasis on a traffic safety campaign called “Be Visible” in response to several serious crashes that occurred in 2021. The year saw several cyclists struck by vehicles in Read More

LANL News:

Get ready for a safer drive and bike ride on West Road, thanks to fencing being installed along sections of it by Los Alamos National Laboratory.

  • Dry grass and pine needles are less likely to ignite if cars aren’t parked near them along the road, decreasing the potential for
