Science Vs. God?
Science Vs God is not primarily about religion. It is a gripping, no-holds-barred series definitively examining whether contemporary science appears to support the existence of a creator or systematically bury “him.” It assembles a world-class cast of “believing” and “unbelieving” scientists – and others – who, in spirited and determined fashion, unleash their arguments as to whether the scientific evidence points to us being here by cosmic chance or because a creator intended it.
AKA The God Question
Part 1: The Cosmos
Its origin shrouded in mystery, described with the precision of mathematics, there is nothing as impressive as the cosmos. Life on Earth is supported by forces finely tuned to an astonishing degree. So is it all luck? Or does the evidence suggest something more behind our ordered universe?
Part 2: Life and Evolution
The evidence for evolution is compelling. Indeed its achievements are so spectacular that they lead to underlying questions about why it is so successful if there is no over-arching plan. In this episode champions of the view that Darwin has buried God clash with their theistic counterparts.
Part 3: Mind and Consciousness
Human consciousness is the most mysterious phenomenon in the universe. Not only does it exist; it is sophisticated beyond understanding. The big issue: does the immaterial reality of human consciousness point to an immaterial mind behind the universe?
