Can Free Will Survive God's Fore-Knowledge (#1412) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

The tension between human free will and God's knowledge of the future threatens both. It's called God's 'foreknowledge'-God knowing now what will happen later-and one need not believe in God to appreciate the puzzles.

How Can God Not Be Free? (#1413) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Does God have real choices? Or is God bound tightly by God's own nature? Can God do absolutely everything? Can God be 'brave'? Can God 'improve'? For God to be God, how can God be constrained all?

Can The Mind Heal The Body? (#1401) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Stress triggers sickness, shortens life. Tranquility promotes wellness, lengthens life. How we think affects how we feel. Psychosomatic medicine is modern medicine. But what works, and what doesn't? What's science, and what's not?

Is God Responsible for Evil? (#1402) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

How on earth could God be reconciled with massive, monstrous Evil? If God is all-powerful and all-knowing, and if God is the creator, wouldn't God be responsible for evil?

What Is Information? (#1403) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Information is all the rage in science, changing how we think about fundamental questions. Information has many descriptions, some of them surprising. Why is Information so important to scientists and philosophers?

Can Design Point to God? (#1404) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

To argue for God, the easy way appears to be 'design', the obvious order and apparent purpose of the world. How could all of this be if there were no God? Quite easily, says science. What's the deep thinking on both sides?
