Luther & Copernicus: From Reformation to Revolution

May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Faith Lutheran Church, 20080 Redwood Road
Castro Valley, CA 94546 United States
+ Google Map

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 Theses; we recall the hammer and nails of 1517 that sparked the Protestant Reformation. In 1543 Nicolaus Copernicus published his theory that the Earth orbits the Sun; and this sparked the Copernican Revolution. Are they connected? This is a historical mystery. Lutherans today love natural science. Could Copernicus be the reason? Host: Joshua Warfield: jwarfield@ses.gtu.edu

October 16 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm
Lafayette Orinda Presbyterian Church, 49 Knox Drive

The Future of Transhumanism as a New Religious Movement

November 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Berkeley Institute, 2134 Allston
Berkeley, CA United States
+ Google Map

2017 marks the 500th Anniversary of the posting of Martin Luther's 95 Theses. 2017 also marks the inauguration of the Tuomo Mannermaa Lecture series. It's time to assess the value and relevancy of the doctrine by which the church rises or falls: justification by faith. What does it mean, really?
