How do we know anything? Do we know because "science says" or because of logic, or because of tradition or because of our personal experience? How can these ways of knowing work together? Does information come only from the physical world or also from outside of it?

How did everything begin? Why is there something rather than nothing? Did the universe need a creator? Why do we exist? How can we understand the world in which we find ourselves? Looking closely at our world one cannot help but wonder about these and similar questions. Professors Ben Moore and Ard Louis, both physicists, are dedicated to seeking answers. In this discussion they will talk about their findings and the more controversial issues surrounding them. Will Christian faith give decisive insights to the matter or will science alone have all the answers?
