Faith and Science film "Flight: The Genius of Birds"; Supper preceding

The San Jose chapter of Reasons to Believe will show and discuss the DVD 'Flight: The Genius of Birds.' "Flight is a brand new and spectacular wildlife documentary. It is an exploration of the animal kingdom from a perspective ignored by television and the scientific establishment. Instead of presenting a worldview based upon the blind, undirected process of Darwinian evolution, Flight offers a compelling look at the design and purpose woven throughout the fabric of life on Earth. Hummingbirds, starlings, and Arctic terns especially reveal compelling design features."

Sponsored by Reasons to Believe, a group where 'science and faith converge.'  Founded by astrophysicist and pastor Dr. Hugh Ross, organizers come many spectrums of the scientific field as well as philosophy, theology, archaeology, etc.  Local San Jose chapter meetings are sometimes led by professors from Berkeley or Stanford.  Ron and I have enjoyed being exposed to new concepts on things as tiny as the atom up to the size of the universe; cells and DNA.  As Christians we find it supportive;  for those who hold different beliefs or none at all, it's a good place to see what the 'opposition' is thinking these days. 

RTB's website has section/categories geared to a range of people -- believers in the Bible, those with doubts, and those who decidedly don't believe.  Check it out at

We'll gather at Le Boulangere in Los Altos starting at 5:45 for a quick supper -- sandwiches, salad, soup are available -- before the meeting, and arrive at the church just a few minutes before 7 for the film and discussion.   301 Main St Los Altos, CA 94022   Just arrive when you can.  Please let us know if you plan to go there.

    Thanks, Rick! The San Jose RTB group meets once a month but always on Friday night -- maybe some day you'll have a night off and can come.
