Our sister group, “SEEKERS Anonymous – DC Metro”, will be meeting again on Monday, August 5, for Week 5 of the “Peeling the Cosmic Onion: A Journey of Spiritual Transformation” series! The topic will be “Cosmic Origins”.
As we continue to peel back the layers of reality, we encounter ever more wondrous phenomena. At our last meetup, we examined the miracle of Life and its origins, digging deeply into the secrets of DNA and the unimaginably complex molecular machines that drive our physical bodies. Naturally, we were drawn to contemplate our own role in the rich panoply of Earth’s biosphere. On Monday, August 5, we will shift our focus to a much grander vision, that of the entire cosmos.
The Big Bang Theory turned the field of cosmology on its head in the mid-twentieth century, and still drives scientific and cultural imagination to this day. What does this theory reveal about the history and origins of our magnificent Universe? Where did the energies that now form all of material reality come from? And what came before that, if, indeed, there was a “before”? Can the Big Bang Theory predict the ultimate destiny of the cosmos, or reveal meaning for a race of sentient life forms on a pale blue dot in a remote region of an insignificant galaxy?
Please consider joining us at Ridgetop Coffee & Tea in Sterling, starting at 7:00pm on Monday, August 5, as we discuss both the science behind our Cosmic Origins, as well as the intriguing concordist viewpoint of nuclear physicist and author Dr. Gerald Schroeder.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you on August 5th!
