Can Dualism Explain Consciousness? (Episode #1512)

KQED World: Fri, Apr 22, 2016 -- 3:30 AM

What Is Causation? (Episode #1511)

KQED World: Fri, Apr 15, 2016 -- 3:30 AM

Does God Know Everything? (Episode #1510)

KQED World: Fri, Apr 8, 2016 -- 3:30 AM

Western religions claim that God is all-knowing. Then the trouble starts. What does it mean to know everything? Is God's knowledge of the future truth? Are 'possibilities' truth? Can God know infinities of truths? Does omniscience test a theistic God?

How to Argue for God? (Episode #1509)

KQED World: Fri, Apr 1, 2016 -- 3:30 AM

Is there a supreme being, a creator of all things, a God? Can arguments-reasons, logic, ways of thinking-cut through traditions, norms, feelings? Believers bear the burden of proof.
