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?

What Is Truth? (#1405) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Everyone wants to know 'Truth'. But what is Truth? People argue about Truth; people fight about Truth-consider politics and religion. But what is the basic meaning of Truth itself?

Does Information Create The Cosmos? (#1406) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Of what is reality made? What are the most basic building blocks from which the cosmos is constructed? Particles? Mass-Energy? Forces? Fields? A new candidate is 'Information'-'IT from BIT'.

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)

Of all human knowledge, the most stunning may be multiple universes-very many universes, perhaps an infinite number of universes. Are multiple universes-the 'multiverse'-scientific fact, theory or speculation?
