    75. The Big Picture | Series: Two Philosophers Wrestle With God | Dialogue 5 [Part 2]

    The ancients wondered whether gods were subject to constructs of Time and Fate. Today, we question whether God can change rules like E = mc2 or if He works in rhythm with the universe, yielding to the laws of nature.

    Join host Scott Langdon as he revisits a section from God: An Autobiography, As Told To A Philosopher that solves these age-old questions and explores Polytheism, reincarnation, the human mind as a medium, and the relationship between God and humans. Following is a dynamic discussion between Dr. Richard Oxenberg and Dr. Jerry L. Martin, investigating the book's implications and the big picture of life.

    Is existence meaningless and no one in control as the nihilists believe, or are the absolutists correct in disproving meaninglessness with an absolute reality capable of controlling everything? Join us somewhere in the middle, a twilight zone located at the crossroads of philosophy, history, and our understanding of God. Consider the world's religions as exploratory points of interaction between humans and God, seeking to understand His nature, developing a joint project of self-discovery and fulfillment, leading to the big picture of it all.

    Revisit a section from God: an Autobiography, as Told to a Philosopher through the dramatic adaptation, and dive into the dynamic discussion between philosophers over the 'big picture.' Does philosophical tradition get the big picture and ultimate reality wrong? 
    Better understand God's message in the book by exploring the self behind the self, the God beyond God, and the Atman, or soul of God. Jerry explains which God spoke to him, the reincarnations of God, and the paradox of same and different.

    The discussion looks at pain, God's loneliness, God's knowledge of the plan or telos, and the actualization of God within this world. Learn about the creative force of God and the disruption that the rest of reality creates, beginning with the Big Bang or God's birth.

Join us in this still-lingering time of enforced leisure and understand what it means when God said, "Listen!"
    This interesting conversation covers the paradox of evil, how to pray, and whether a parent's frustrations are similar to God's frustration. But, can God be like us in just doing His best?
