Closer to Truth - A Website Worth Visiting

This is a great website! It is called Closer to Truth: Cosmos. Consciousness. God. Since I found it I’ve watched interviews (webisodes) like:

Arugments for God? with Alvin Plantinga
Arguments for God? with Richard Swinburne
Is God in time? with William Lane Craig
Is God all knowing? with William Lane Craig
Arguing God from the moral law? with J. P. Moreland
Arguments for atheism? with Daniel Dennett
Is God a person? with the Venerable Yifa (a Buddhist nun)
Is God necessary? with Bede Rundle
Does God have a nature? with Bede Rundle
Fallacies in proving God exists? with Michael Tooley
Can brain explain mind? with John Searle
Does a soul have an afterlife? with Nancy Murphy
Why did our universe begin? with Roger Penrose
Is mathematics invented or discovered? with George Lakoff
Is time travel possible? with Kip Thorne
Is time travel possible? with Michio Kaku
Is time travel possible? with Seth Lloyd (I'll admit I got stuck on this topic. Maybe I've watched too many episodes of Lost.)

It will be hard to get any reading done since there are so many more I want to watch. If you like philosophy (or theology or science) this is a great website. Best of all the interviews are informal and very accessible. In other words you don’t have to be a professional philosopher or a scientist to understand it (at least not most of it). Give it a visit and pick a topic that interests you. You won’t be disappointed. If you're already familiar with this website what have you enjoyed the most?
