The Pat Flynn Show

Jun 2, 2019

Stephen Barr PhD returns to the Pat Flynn show to talk about the intersection of science (particularly physics) and classical theism.

In this episode:

  • Why is there a universe at all? Can science answer this question, or do we need religion?
  • Does God offer explanatory power? Can God help us make sense of things that we can't otherwise? And what about flying spaghetti monsters? Because why not.
  • How "anthropic coincidences" point strongly to a cosmic designer.
  • Is everything *just* physics? Or is there more to the world than what physics can tell us?
  • And does atheism (specifically physicalism) reduce to absurdity? 
  • Are miracles problematic with the laws of nature?
