Why filter?

Hello! First of all, let me tell you that I love the podcast. My question is the following: I am pretty new to advanced photography (more than simple point and shoot) and I am wondering what the benefits of filters are with digital cameras. I understand the benefits when using film, however, I do not understand what the benefits are for digital since images can be fixed later using software. What are the actual benefits of using filters over simply correcting the pictures afterward using software? Thanks! Once again, love the show! Fred
