Discussion Topic for This Month: “Why Is There Something, Rather Than Nothing?”

presented by Mat Robbins


Mat explains: “We will look at several possible angles of inquiry, paying special attention to religious explanations, the anthropic principle, the axiarchic principle, and the explanatory framework offered by ‘possible worlds’ theory. I will present arguments regarding some of these, discuss their shortcomings, and welcome whatever further lines of discussion we choose to pursue. Hope to see you there!”
