What Is Nothing? (#1212) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Why Anything at All? (#1213) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

What Would It Feel Like to Be God? (#1203) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

God is said to be all-powerful, all-knowing, all-good. But what is God's private mental life? Is this asking too much, going too far?
