Facilitated by Dick Whitaker and Bill Irons. Dick is a self-described "discussion group junkie." At Osher Lifelong Learning and UCE, his subjects have included Nature's God, What is Religion?, New Religions, Atheist Spirituality, and Darwin's Cathedral. He's been a market researcher and a 48-year member of UCE. Bill is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Northwestern University. His field research led him to inquire into broader questions of biocultural evolution including the origins of morality and religion. He was the first scientist to suggest that religion is an adaptation serving as a hard-to-fake sign of commitment. In 2011 he received a Lifetime Career Award from the Human Behavior and Evolution Society.
