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?

Observing Physics, Observing Nature? (#1708) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Atonement - A Philosophical Inquiry (#1912) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Salvation - A Philosophical Inquiry (#1913) Duration: 26:47 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

What's Philosophy of Cosmology? (#1901) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

We search deepest levels of cosmic reality, the big picture of the puzzle of the universe - beginning, size, structure, future, far future. We seek significance in cosmology, if there's any to be.

What's Fine - Tuning In Cosmology? (#1902) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Here's the claim: cosmic conditions that allow complex structures - galaxies, stars, planets, people - depend on a few "constants of nature" lying within tight ranges of values. But is fine-tuning valid?

What's Fine - Tuning In Physics? (#1903) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Why do the "constants of nature" - masses of subatomic particles and strengths of forces like gravity and electromagnetism - have the values they do? Does fine-tuning "cry out" for explanation?
