Can God and Science Mix? (#1605) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Religious Faith: Rational Or Rationalization? (#1606) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Can Enlarged Materialism Explain Consciousness? (#1608) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Materialism is the belief that only physical things are real. But physical things seem so utterly different from mental things. Could there be more to materialism than the known laws of physics?

Does Consciousness Defeat Materialism? (#1609) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
