Toastmaster Marie Cook presented a keynote speech for a Teilhard de Chardin Forum at the Batemans Bay Toastmasters Club recently. The speech was titled: “Uplift the spirit – Humanities Evolution.” Teilhard de Chardin was a French geologist / paleantologist, theologian, and philosopher who died in 1955. He shared with Albert Einstein the view that humans are an evolving species.
Marie’s speech projected a positive aesthetic academic view of humanities affinity with nature where there is every reason to be optimistic if we understand we are not separate nor a single unit to nature. We are part of the web of life with nature, and evolve productively as a colony merging with nature. By studying the knowledge of how we evolve we are able to connect and then make a contribution to our societal future and humanity as a whole. We have the potential to be greater if we gain this knowledge. Marie emphasised that nature and humans are in harmony, and we have a responsibility to understand this divine connection, for our own peaceful existence.
Batemans Bay Toastmasters provides members with a constructive practical development routine enabling the formation of an aptitude towards advanced communication methods.
