Richard Herring's Meaning Of Life: Episode 1 - Creation

RHMOL #:1 Creation. In a ground-breaking, new, independently produced series, Richard Herring attempts to find the answers to all of life's big questions, through the medium of stand-up, animation and an interview with an expert. First up is the creation of the Universe, where did we come from and why can neither science or religion give a satisfactory explanation of what was here before? Was the Universe created by an insect, some milk, a wanking God or a confusing explosion of nothing? What really happened in the garden of Eden? Why has science come up with such a childish name for its theory? With an interview about Quantum Theory and much more with Marcus Chown.
