On Tuesday October 25, 2011 we viewed two episodes of the “Through The Wormhole” – “Is There a Creator? ” and “ Is There Life After Death?” – presented by Janet Rowland.  The “Through The Wormhole” series originally aired on the Science Channel, and is narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Is There a Creator?” –  It’s perhaps the biggest, most controversial mystery in the Cosmos. Did our Universe just come into being by random chance, or was it created by a God who nurtures and sustains all life? The latest science is showing that the four forces governing our Universe are phenomenally finely tuned, so finely that it has led many to the conclusion that someone, or something, must have calibrated them. While skeptics hold that these findings are neither conclusive nor evidence of a divine creator, some cutting edge physicists are already positing who God may be. Some of the answers are as compelling as they are disconcerting.

Is There Life After Death?” –  Everyone has pondered the question that strikes at the core of our existence; Is there life after death? What happens to the soul after we die? People who have had near-death experiences claim to have visited the other side before getting yanked back into consciousness. Now some of the brightest minds in science are trying to understand how life can persist beyond the physical and what it might look like. It might be a quantum state based on the fundamental laws of the Universe. Ultimately, it is a journey that struggles to decode the most complicated instrument in the Universe: the human brain.

Thanks to everyone for joining us for “Is There a Creator?” and “Is There Life After Death?
