Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was a French philosopher and Jesuit Priest. He was often denied publication by the Roman Holy office and yet had a heavy influence on the reforms brought by 2nd Vatican. One of his best known contributions was the idea of the Omega Point. The Omega Point refers to the maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards which, he believed, the universe was evolving.
Come to the Open Tap tonight and consider this idea. Is he right? How could this be verified? How would this affect church doctrine? What does it mean for how we relate to God? And more…..
The Open Tap meets every Thursday at 5:30 to 7 at Henry’s bar Upstairs. It is an open theological conversation, with the goal of communicating at some depth about all kinds of issues. It is not, however, ever meant to convert or persuade another to another point of view.
