Wondering About God?

From Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host and creator of Closer To Truth:

I like arguing God: whether God exists, what God might be like. For me, God debate is good fun.
But God debate is not a game. And when I get serious about God, I wonder about God—critically, whether there is a God; philosophically, about God’s essence and traits. I wonder about all the ways that God could be. Or could not be. I seek those of different views, whose Gods have different shapes and stripes.

Does a Fine-Tuned Universe Lead to God?

From Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host and creator of Closer To Truth:

We go our ways and live our lives. All seems ordinary, normal. Yet all is extraordinary, astonishing. We human beings sit roughly midway between atoms and galaxies, between the infinitesimally small and the immensely large. And both—atoms and galaxies—must be so perfectly structured for them—for us—to exist.

How Do Human Brains Think and Feel?

From Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host and creator of Closer To Truth:

Nothing; not science, not theology, not politics, not love: Nothing means anything without our brains. Everything we know and do, all the sense of human thought, all the feelings of human emotion, all the questions of human existence—all are the product of the brains in our heads.
Thought, emotion, existence—I’ve yearned to know what it’s all about. One could start with physics, philosophy, psychology, religion. I start with the human brain. How do human brains think and feel?

Why the Cosmos?

From Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host and creator of Closer To Truth:

I look out to the far reaches of the universe, an overwhelming vastness of galaxies and spaces seemingly without end, and I am weak with wonder. When I learn how fundamental forces of the atom explain the origins and structure of the cosmos, I am overwhelmed by the unity of small and large. It is said that “how” questions belong to the realm of science, but “why” questions do not. Yet startling new connections, never thought possible, offer radical powers of explanation.
Do “why” questions belong to science? What about the biggest “why” of them all: Why the cosmos?
