Hard to believe that the Summer of 2020 is now a memory. It has certainly been an eventful season and sadly, not all good. Our hearts are heavy for those who have been affected by the fires in Colorado, California, Oregon, and Washington and we also send our prayers to all those who have been dealing with sickness or loss of loved ones. Here's hoping that the Fall brings some relief on all fronts.
We want to once again connect with you and let you know about a feature that that you might find interesting coming up in October.
Our October video on the Urantia Book page is called: Hunting for dinosaurs showed me our place in the universe by Ken Lacovara. It will appeal to many of you who are fascinated by the Urantia Book's portrayal of earth's history and the dinosaurs' place in it.
Here's a thumbnail sketch of the video's content: "What happens when you discover a dinosaur? Paleontologist Kenneth Lacovara details his unearthing of Dreadnoughtus -- a 77-million-year-old sauropod that was as tall as a two-story house and as heavy as a jumbo jet -- and considers how amazingly improbable it is that a tiny mammal living in the cracks of the dinosaur world could evolve into a sentient being capable of understanding these magnificent creatures. Join him in a celebration of the Earth's geological history and contemplate our place in deep time."
Although Lacovara subscribes to the popular asteroid collision theory of the dinosaurs' demise, this does not detract from his inspiring and sobering view of our ability to discern the future and address those factors that endanger our survival. The dinosaurs were not so lucky. The study of the ancient past provides us with both humility and opportunity today. Unlike the dinosaurs, we have a choice as to our species' survival. They could not see their demise coming; we can look into the future and see the factors that we can address to avoid their fate.
