Durango Skeptics and Atheists

A Community for Critical Thinkers in the Four Corners Region

Happy Reason Rally Day 2012

Today is a special day for Atheists, Agnostics,  and Freethinkers.

For the first time, non-believers are descending upon the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to let our leaders know that we are here and we want representation.

Additionally, this day celebrates living a fulfilled life without  beliefs  in supernatural beings. It celebrates reality and the beauty contained within. It celebrates the clarity found in a rational worldview unsaddled by superstition and fear.

This day is also for those still grappling with the thought of “coming out” with their non-belief.  This is a difficult position to be in, particularly for those raised with religious beliefs.

But you are not alone.

Brandi, one of our members, is at the Reason Rally and will be blogging a full report on this momentous event when she gets back.

In the meantime, here our a couple of pictures she sent:

Recap From the Reason Rally

  1. I just got back to my hotel room from there. The rally was amazing. So many highlights…and I am still trying to sort out my own pictures, and dry out, but I highly recommend finding Jamie Killstein’s rant, or Eddie Izzard piece. They are epic!

    It rained on us all day, but the crowd was into it, and it was simply awesome. I lucked into getting a VIP pass, so I was sitting with the speakers (except Dawkins). In fact I was in between Greta Christina, and Christina Rad. Thunderfoot gave me a poncho…super nice guy.

  2. Oh yeah….Tim Minchin was amazing too. He played two songs I hadn’t heard before.

    Thanks for the Rally Info! I checked out your pix on your website, too. Very cool.

  4. I am still trying to upload them. It takes awhile, and I am brand new at it.

  5. The Thinking Atheist just published a great video about the rally. I really gave me goosebumps, because I experienced much of the same.

    Ha! You beat me to the posting of this video! I was totally on it this afternoon but had to pospone when my 16 month old woke up, demanding my attention. Yes, I agree- great video. Gonna post it on our site now!
