What Exists II? (#1906) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

What's the ultimate stuff of reality? What's absolutely fundamental and non-reducible - the fewest number of categories within which every specific thing, of every general kind, can be classified?

Why Anything at All II? (#1907) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

It's the ultimate puzzle. It's the haunting question. Why is there "something" rather than "nothing"? It seems impenetrable, uncrackable, unfathomable. But are there ways?

Epistemology: How Can We Know God? (#1908) Duration: 26:47 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Can humans have knowledge of God? Between humans and God, between finite and infinite, there seems an unbridgeable gap. So what can it mean to "know God"? There are multiple meanings.

Jesus As God - A Philosophical Inquiry (#1909) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Why the astonishing claim that Jesus is God? Not like God. Not representing God. But literally God? One need not be a Christian, or even a theist, to appreciate the arguments.

The Trinity: A Philosophical Inquiry (#1910) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

It seems the ultimate riddle: How could One God be Three Persons? How could One be Three? Or Three be One? And why three? Non-believers and believers can both enjoy the logic and linguistics.

The Incarnation - A Philosophical Inquiry (#1911) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

It's a staggering idea: God became flesh. Why would the Creator become human? For believers, how could Divine and Human natures interact? For non-believers, how do beliefs reflect the psyche?
