Speculating About God? (#1505) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

In searching, striving to know God-if there is a God-we discover contrasting ways that God could be. It is good to wonder about God, see a landscape of possibilities, get the big picture of what God may be like.

How Could God Intervene in the Universe? (#1506) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

For God to be God, God could not do nothing. If God exists, God must do things. Assuming God created the universe, then God should do things with the universe. But what? And how?

Does ESP Reach A Larger Reality? (#1507) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Extrasensory perception (ESP) probes reality. If ESP does not exist, then today's physical world may be all there is. If ESP does exist, then reality may go beyond the physical world. But can ESP be tested by science?

Can ESP Reach A Larger Reality? (#1508) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

If ESP were real, would it transcend space and time? How could our minds know stuff, and do stuff, not only beyond our senses, but also beyond the laws of physics? What are possible mechanisms?

How to Argue for God? (#1509) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Is there a supreme being, a creator of all things, a God? Can arguments-reasons, logic, ways of thinking-cut through traditions, norms, feelings? Believers bear the burden of proof.

Does God Know Everything? (#1510) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Western religions claim that God is all-knowing. Then the trouble starts. What does it mean to know everything? Is God's knowledge of the future truth? Are 'possibilities' truth? Can God know infinities of truths? Does omniscience test a theistic God?

What Is Causation? (#1511) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Why does one thing 'cause' another thing? Is causation fundamental, primitive, real-not reducible to, or explainable by, anything else? Or is causation a human construct, derivative, artificial? At stake is what existence is about.

Can Dualism Explain Consciousness? (#1512) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Dualism claims reality has two parts, a physical and a nonphysical (mental or spiritual), both equally real. Dualism is believed by most people but rejected by most philosophers and scientists.

Is Consciousness Ultimate Reality? (#1513) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Some say that consciousness is the only true reality-that everything else, including the universe, comes from consciousness. If so, how would consciousness relate to the world?

    • 4/17/16 – KQED Plus (DT54) Over the Air Issue: Virtual ID missing

      We are aware that many Over the Air (OTA) viewers are currently unable to tune in our channels on the usual DT54.1 through 54.5. This is due to a problem with our PSIP generator, which engineers hope to have repaired on Monday 4/18. In the meantime, OTA viewers might be able to watch any of […]
