    While the talk was mostly fine, and the environment was good, I think Randy didn’t address the real issue at hand. John challenged the community to prioritize other issues besides religion, and Randy made no argument that religion is actually a top priority.

      Gary, I feel that we may be talking past one another's points.

      I certainly concur that, as individuals, we can take no action without first internally making that action our number 1 priority. But given the sample list of issues: social justice, economic justice, world population, environmental crisis, & improvement of rationality. I can say that my own personal prioritization of these is going to change on a day to day basis, since I value them so similarly.

      And if I were have to make decisions about allocation of resources towards these problems, the specifics of the actual projects would be much more important to me than which of the issues the project was meant to address since I value the issues so similarly.

      Thank you both for your input. I looked up synergy and am reading more about group decision making before commenting further.

    This is the second event like this I have attended, the other one was Monettes' Right Way To be Wrong. I can say I am thrilled to have found this group.
    About Randys' presentation itself: I would have liked a little more context about the differences he and John have. One of my guests is Christian and we had wonderful conversation all the way home. My atheist son was thrilled to find out about groups like ours.
    Thanks Randy (&organizers)
