The Future is Calling Us to Greatness - Bestselling Author and "Evangelist for Evolution" Michael Dowd

Since 2002, Michael Dowd and his wife, acclaimed science writer Connie Barlow, have traveled North America non-stop and have addressed nearly two thousand religious and secular groups — from Unitarian Universalists and secular high school, college, and university students, to Catholic, Protestant, and Evangelical Christian churches, to New Thought, New Age, and Eastern spirituality groups. Their purpose and passion is to share the inspiring and empowering side of science and to show how a deeply meaningful and fully evidence-based view of human nature, death, and the trajectory of "big history" can inspire people of all backgrounds and beliefs to live in integrity and cooperate in service of a just and thriving future for all. Michael's presentations and books, including Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World, have been praised and endorsed by Nobel Prize-winning scientists, noted atheists and skeptics, and religious leaders across the spectrum.

About his current talk and multimedia presentation, Michael says: "Science and religion are not enemies; indeed, they must work together if humanity is to survive the 21st century. Given our impact on Earth’s climate, the seas, and other species, humanity is about to experience what could be called The Great Reckoning. A worldwide movement has been emerging for decades, largely unnoticed, at the nexus of science, inspiration, and sustainability. What unites us are a pool of common values, priorities, and commitments regarding the importance of living in right relationship to reality and working together in service of a just and thriving future for humanity and the larger body of life."

Please join us for a stimulating evening presentation at the UU Community Church of Santa Monica on Monday, March 10th with a discussion and reception to follow. Jointly presented by UUCCSMAAHS (Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists & Secularists) and Sunday Assembly LA.
