God? Who is this? Let's keep this forum on the topic of existant beings that have physical evidence of that they exist. And for anyone who tries to refute this argument, you're wrong. there is no proof for any God.

Do you even know what this thread is about?

Has anyone heard of or read "The Case for God"? I saw a girl reading it on the subway last week.

Darn! Wish I could see that over here. My husband and I were discussing why certain religious trends, such as Creationism, has managed to take hold in America but not here in Germany. Do you know if they have a transscript?

It is tricky trying to watch programs from a different country than the one you are living in. Until my daughter went to Japan I did not know that everything I see on the web is not what she is able to see. Also, DVD's only play in the country they were made to be sold in. With all that said, yes, you can get a transcript of the program.

I hope the link works for you. The entire program is available to view on the web, but not sure if it can be seen in Germany. PBS also sells the DVD, but again, I think it might not work in Germany.
