Peter Boghossian Speaks at Gulf Coast State College CFI On Campus

March 26, 2014

The event with Dr. Boghossian was a big hit! With help from Gulf Coast State College's Honors Program and Student Government Association, we were able to offer free pizza and drinks to everyone preceding the presentation. Then, at 1:00 PM, Dr. Boghossian kicked off his Critical Thinking Crash Course, where he presented wonderful thinking tools for tackling many questions in life! It was very informative, and we think everyone learned a lot from it.

Following the lecture, we held a question-and-answer portion of the event, where many people were able to ask Dr. Boghossian anything they desired. Questions ranged from the topics of free will and religion to other helpful strategies concerning critical thinking itself.

Afterwards, our own campus's GCSC TV was able to capture an interview with Dr. Boghossian about the event, and later in the evening, in association with GCSC CFI On Campus, Dr. Boghossian presented another lecture at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Bay County, where he discussed Street Epistemology and related tools from his new, best-selling book A Manual for Creating Atheists.

Overall, it was a great day for reason. We at GCSC CFI On Campus are honored to have had such a renowned philosopher deliver to us his exceptional educational tools, and we can't wait till our next Annual Spring Lecture!
