I really enjoyed this book because of his research on this otherwise taboo topic and his thought provoking conclusions, some which I agreed with and some which I did not.  I would love to hear our other member's thoughts on his ideas (particularly the ones related to atheism).

As always if you don't get a chance to read the book you are more than welcome to come for the discussion.

The location of this restaurant is exit 3 of Dolphin mall (free parking) close to Cheesecake factory.

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

By Jonathan Haidt

As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has done the seemingly impossible—challenged conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to everyone on the political spectrum. Drawing on his twenty five years of groundbreaking research on moral psychology, he shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns. In this subtle yet accessible book, Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts. If you’re ready to trade in anger for understanding, read The Righteous Mind.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
