Hello all you Deep thinkers. I just wanted to make you all aware of the lecture tomorrow night at the Hammer Museum in Westwood at 7 PM. Admission is free, but it may fill up, so get there early. The Evolution of GodIs God good or bad? In both the Bible and the Koran, God?s mood seems to swing randomly between belligerence and benevolence. But the scriptures, read carefully, reveal a subtle pattern in these moods, a pattern that is key to understanding the evolution of the great monotheistic faiths. In an era when the perceived divisions between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam spark violent conflict, understanding the deep parallels between the faiths is crucial to building a peaceful world. Robert Wright, a Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation and the author of The Moral Animal, Nonzero, and the recently published The Evolution of God, visits to discuss the birth and growth of the Abrahamic God?and why his best years may lie ahead.
