In June of 2013, the Forum held a conference at The Chautauqua Institution in New York State titled “Journey of the Universe and Our Elegant Universe.”
The conference was a wonderful setting to explore the story of cosmic, Earth, and human evolution. Scientists gave lectures in the morning sessions on the topic of “Our Elegant Universe.” The Journey of the Universe film had two screenings followed by lively discussions, and the afternoon sessions included responses to the film from the perspectives of the world religions. These sessions were organized by Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim with colleagues from the Forum, including Heather Eaton, Chris Chapple, David Haberman, and James Miller.
