Is There Life After Death?
Date: February 2019
Duration: 1 hours 21 minutes
What happens when we die? There is no bigger question, and no shortage of potential answers.
In this series of three episodes, your host, Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, holds sixteen engaging interviews with an eclectic lineup of experts.
As you listen to these discussions about the possibility of eternal life, you will probe fascinating questions. Can our personal awareness transcend physical decay and dissolution? Religions around the world offer hope, but with promises that are contingent on the existence of God. For life after death, would God be required? If so, how would God do it? And what would life after death-eternal life-be like?
You'll begin by exploring the afterlife conceptually, with the help of a half-dozen of the world's leading philosophers.
Authors add an interesting perspective to the debate. You'll hear from three, including the author of the book Theology in the Age of Scientific Reasoning (1990), which won the American Academy of Religion award for excellence.
And of course no contemplation of the afterlife would be complete without consulting religious traditions.
Physicists have the last word, along with the former Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Sri Lanka to UNESCO, France, and the United States. If you're scratching your head now, you'll soon appreciate the "the more, the merrier" approach that Dr. Kuhn takes to these interviews.
Bursting at the seams with high-caliber thinkers, these three episodes promise to expand your view of the afterlife.
