Dr. Collin”s talks are foundational (“101”) in nature, as they are prepared for audiences less well grounded in the history, basic underpinnings and philosophical outlook of the non-theistic life, he gave this presentation to us partly for our input; seeking our opinions and concerns to help guide future out-group presentations as well as to examine for ways to help our own group. He mentioned that this “coming out” was reinforcing, since he was given a goodly amount of positive response from the students, non-student audience members, teachers and hosts.
