Join us for birthday cake and ice cream as we celebrate the birth of Charles Darwin. We’ll then enjoy the PBS Nova film ‘Dawn of Humanity’: “Deep in a South African cave, a special team of experts has brought to light an unprecedented wealth of fossils belonging to a crucial gap in the record of our origins that spans the transition between the ape-like australopithecines (such as the famous Lucy) and the earliest members of the human family. At the center of the discovery is paleoanthropologist Lee Berger, a character brimming with enthusiasm and opinions, whose claims have stirred long controversy in the contentious field of human origins. Join NOVA to solve a two million year-old “crime scene” and dig into extraordinary new clues about what made us human.”
This film profiles Atheist and rock climber Alex Honnold on his quest to perform a free solo climb of El Capitan in June 2017. Honnold was also featured in Chris Johnson’s Documentary, “A Better Life: An Exploration of Joy and Meaning in a World Without God. Honnold has a truly exceptional way of finding joy and meaning in his life. One that is very dangerous and could shorten his one and only existence. We are curious to see how he wrangles the fear into a meaningful life goal and succeeds.
