  • Cosmos: How vast is our universe? How did it begin? Is it fine-tuned for life? Could our universe be a fake? What is the far future of our universe? Are there multiple universes? What is time? What is the relationship between science and religion? 

  • Consciousness: What is consciousness, our inner awareness? Why is it so mysterious? What is the mind-body problem? Can brain explain mind? What is the self? Do we have free will? How does personal identity persist through time?

  • Meaning: Is there purpose in the cosmos? What causes religious belief? What is God? What are alternative concepts of God? Can God be proven or disproven? What are God’s traits? Did God create evil? What’s the New Atheism?

Founded on diverse views and critical thinking, Closer To Truth has developed strategic collaborations to promote a better understanding of our human experience.
