Does God Exist?
Date: March 2019
Duration: 1 hours 21 minutes
Does God exist? How do you justify your belief or unbelief to others? A delicate matter, you rarely have the occasion to fully explore these questions in daily life. Now, this special series invites you to join some of the world's leading thinkers in the serious civil conversation you crave.
Daring to ask the big questions, your host, Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, holds 18 riveting one-on-one interviews with the leading figures of our day.
As you listen to these discussions about the existence of God, you will probe compelling questions. Does belief in God really need to be justified? How does God make Himself known? What are the most persuasive arguments atheists put forward? How have believers refuted those arguments, and how successfully?
A gifted moderator, Dr. Kuhn creates equilibrium through his even-handed questions and eagerness to give everyone a seat at the table. You'll hear from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim philosophers as well as prominent atheists.
Topping the chart of Christian philosophers are Alvin Plantinga and Peter van Inwagen, both professors at the University of Notre Dame. From the atheistic camp you'll meet Daniel Clement Dennett III-one of the contrarian "Four Horsemen of New Atheism"-and the founder of The Skeptics Society, Michael Brant Shermer.
From the problem of evil to the Freudian notion of wish fulfillment, these three episodes will engage your mind and your heart in some of the most profoundly important questions ever asked.
