    The demarcation of a-hole.
    Is that the possbile starting place of a new inquiry?

    Yesterday was a great discussion like I have experienced in the last few cfino meet-ups. I had interest in raising awareness of the science of 2-system mind operation and suboptimal thinking of bias to the cfino group. The group as usual was very knowledgable in general and knew a lot about all bias before encountering the book.

    The group discussion ended with the topic of the cfi mission and membership. But right before that, there was talk about if and when we should judge people. I think I heard that in one range, we are not responsible for our problematic actions because we don't know enough about how we think. But at some point we cross the line into needing to take personal responsibility for our suboptimal thinking.

    That distinction may be the key to what I don't understand about the need for a rationality group to identifying themselves as secular. I would like to understand more.

    This video is a great into to dual process theory, and even mentions this exact book at the end. Fun little primer.
