Hope, Nature, Sin, and Transhumanism
Are We Making Progress?
In Summer 2020, the Los Alamos Faith and Science Forum examines the issue of hope in this uncertain age, the relation of religion and ecology, the age-old questions of original sin and the problem of evil in light of recent scientific discoveries, the future of humanity in the context of bioengineering advances and ethical issues, and finally, near-death experiences.
All lectures will take place on-line using Zoom
The lectures begin at 6:30 p.m., every Wednesday, starting June 3 and running for seven weeks through July 15. These sessions will be available on the internet via Zoom.
