Teleological and Intelligent Design Arguments for God’s Existence

Teleological / Intelligent Design Argument for the Existence of God (found in the book Reasonable Faith by William Lane Craig): The fine tuning of the universe is either due to physical necessity, chance, or design It is not due to physical necessity or chance Therefore it is due to design “What is meant by fine tuning?  The physical laws of nature, when given mathematical expression, contain various constants (such as the gravitational constant) whose values are not determined by the laws themselves; a universe governed by such laws might be characterized by any of a wide range of values...

Use Music To Improve Your Health

I am, and always have been, a music fanatic. In fact, my whole family is; it’s a must-have whenever we get together. The music blares and the singing (and laughter) quickly follows. For me, music is also a must-have for workouts. Have you ever really thought about why everyone seems to (or used to, thanks to podcasts!) listen to music while they exercise?  From my experience, many of the reasons are due to the fact that the music “pumps you up”, puts you in the zone, or gives you a little extra energy boost.  Ever notice how you feel...
