Does Cosmic Fine Tuning Demand Explanation? (#1208) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

The universe works for us because of deep physical laws. But if the values of these laws would much change, then all we see and know could not exist.

Why Obsess About Free Will? (#1209) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Why Seek An Alternative God? (#1210) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Why is there a world, a cosmos, something-instead of absolutely nothing at all? Of all the big questions, this is the biggest. Beware: this is no ordinary question.
