  • MOVIES: 'The Principle' and the significance of life

    by Phil Boatwright, posted Thursday, January 21, 2016 (2 years ago)

Interviews with leading cosmologists are interspersed with the views of dissidents and mavericks, bringing into sharp focus the challenges and implications not only for cosmology, but for our cultural and religious view of reality."
