Reason Rally Gathers at National Mall

A rally organizers have billed as the “largest secular event in world history” will be held on the National Mall today.

The Reason Rally will bring atheists and nonbelievers together in a hallowed American place… The rally will express some of the alarm atheists can feel at seeing religious creeds on U.S. currency or hearing politicians pay respects to “people of all faiths,” but not those who have none.

When the “largest secular event in world history” only has to apply for a permit of 15,000, that’s pretty pathetic. Who knows if they’ll even make that mark, but there are WNBA teams who have averaged better attendance than that!

These are people who will gather together and most likely spend most of their time talking about how religions are the cause for all the wars, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the century just past saw more people slaughtered by Godless states such as the Nazis, Stalin’s Soviet Russia, Mao’s Communist China and third world Communist dictators than all the previous centuries combined, but I respect the efforts of the atheists to gather together and have their voices as a small minority in America heard alongside everyone else’s.

The part I don’t get is, these are supposed to be people of science, people of reason – where is the logic in trying to brand yourself as a “nonbeliever”? Bullshit. Believing in nothing is a belief in and of itself. You can try to convince yourself you believe in nothing all day long and the only thing it will make you is a nihilist. Most atheists are not nihilists, which means they believe in a lot of things, one of which is the absense of God.

You say you worry about the respect paid to “people of all faiths” but feel slighted as a person who has none? Are you seriously trying to tell me it takes no faith to believe that the universe was created without a Creator, that all of this reality just poofed out of nowhere?!?!

It’s amazing to me how so many smart people can be completely oblivious to the fact that it takes just as much faith to believe in the absense of God as it does to believe that there is a God, but dear atheists, please take heart, when the phrase, “people of all faiths” is used, trust me, you and your faith in the lack of a God are right there in there.

  • Some people seriously have WAAAAYYY too much time on their hands~

  • Hey Mike, it was good talking with you yesterday. I pray for all the unbelievers out there that each one of them would come to the truth by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. As far as the wars go here is a prophecy of warning that Jesus Christ has given to us:

    Matthew (24:4-14)-4 Jesus told them, Don’t let anyone fool you.5 For many will come claiming to be the Messiah, and will lead many astray.6 When you hear of wars beginning, this does not signal my return; these must come, but the end is not yet.7 The nations and kingdoms of the earth will rise against each other and there will be famines and earthquakes in many places.8 But all this will be only the beginning of the horrors to come.
    9 “Then you will be tortured and killed and hated all over the world because you are mine,10 and many of you shall fall back into sin and betray and hate each other.11 And many false prophets will appear and lead many astray.12 Sin will be rampant everywhere and will cool the love of many.13 But those enduring to the end shall be saved.
    14 “And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it, and then, finally, the end will come.

    John (16:9-11)-9 The world’s sin is unbelief in me;10 there is righteousness available because I go to the Father and you shall see me no more;11 there is deliverance from judgment because the prince of this world has already been judged.

    Acts (4:11-12)-11 For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, ‘The stone that you builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.’12 There is salvation in no one else! Under all heaven there is no other name for men to call upon to save them.

    Romans(10:13)-For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.”

    John(14:6)- Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

    Note: Again I pray that many unbelievers will turn from there unbelief this very day, and cry out in the name of Jesus Christ to save them. I ask and pray this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

    God bless you,
    Randy

  • It would be interesting to attend the rally, Mike. On the other hand, atheists probably look like everyone else. The last Gay Pride Parade I watched was a bunch of uninteresting, ordinary people. Why watch that? All the fun stuff had gone!

  • If Earth was made by a God just for WE stupid humans,why is it 72% water & we were’nt born with fins?

  • You are confusing disbelief of theistic claims with belief in nothing – wathever that may be.

    you know how it is to not believe something because you are not a muslim or a hindu. So please, stop with the bigotry and strawman. Also read up on the concept of the burden of proof while you’re at it…

    • Burden of proof comes in to play when you’re in a courtroom and the system says someone is innocent until proven guilty. When it comes to a philosophical question – claiming an absence of God or the existence of God, the burden of proof is split equally.

  • Genesis (1:1-2)-1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface.

    John (1:1-5)-1 In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 He existed in the beginning with God.3 God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him.4 The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

    John(1:14)- So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.

    John(3:16)-“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

    1 Timothy (3:16)- Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit. He was seen by angels and announced to the nations. He was believed in throughout the world.

    2 Peter (3:3-7)-3 First, I want to remind you that in the last days there will come scoffers who will do every wrong they can think of, and laugh at the truth.4 This will be their argument: “So Jesus promised to come back, did he? Then where is he? He’ll never come! Why, as far back as anyone can remember everything has remained exactly as it was since the first day of creation.”
    5,6 They deliberately forget this fact: that God did destroy the world with a mighty flood, long after he made the heavens by the word of his command, and had used the waters to form the earth and surround it.7 And God has commanded that the earth and the heavens be stored away for a great bonfire at the judgment day, when all ungodly men will perish.

    Note: The most important aspect of the continuing discussion is not the process of creation, but the origin of creation. The world is not a product of blind chance and probability; God created it. The Holy Bible not only tells us that the world was created by God; more important, it tells us who God is. It reveals God’s personality, his character, and his plan for his creation. It also reveals God’s deepest desire; to relate to and fellowship with the people he created. God took the ultimate step toward fellowship with us through his historic visit to his planet in the person of his Son Jesus Christ. We can know in a very personal way this God who created everything. The book of Genesis begins, “God created the heavens and the earth.”

    Romans (10:8-10)-8 In fact, it says, The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: 9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.

    Amen. God bless you,
    Randy

  • Awesome blog!!. Love those that tell it the way it is brother. The thing that makes me lol is that atheists call themselves atheists because deep down they are afraid to be called what they are: Antichrists. They will argue that they believe in no god @ all therefore it’s not the same thing. Jesus is God. The Father calls him God and Lord in Hebrews 1:8-10. So since God’s son Jesus Christ is God and not believing in Jesus Christ is called an Antichrist and since they believe in no god at all, including Jesus Christ, they are Antichrists. Period.

    Oh, Btw, the earth is 72% or more because God arranged the 100% that used to be to make dry land which is called earth. We are not born with fins because God formed Adam from the dust of earth, not from the depths of the sea.

  • Amen Jo Jo, Jesus is God. So keep on praying for our enemies so that many can turn from their unbelief and come to the truth in Jesus Christ.

    Acts (26:17-18)-17 And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles. Yes, I am sending you to the Gentiles 18 to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’

    1 Timothy (1:15-17)-15 This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”- and I am the worst of them all. 16 But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life. 17 All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen.

    2 Peter (3:9)-The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

    Ephesians (6:12)- For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

    Matthew (5:43-45)-43 “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and unjust alike.

    God bless you,
    Randy
