Why A Body in a Resurrection? (#1407) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Judaism, Christianity and Islam teach the 'resurrection of the body', the person brought back to life. But isn't a 'body' out of place in a nonphysical hereafter? Isn't a body a burden throughout eternity? Moreover, how to resurrect a body?

Must Multiple Universes Exist? (#1408) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Toward A Science of Consciousness (#1409) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Why do we have inner awareness? Why does it 'feel like something' inside to see, hear, taste, think? It's called 'consciousness' and it seems mysterious-but can science explain it? We talk to experts at the 20th biennial conference, "Toward a Science of Consciousness."

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?
