Go to: Westboro Baptist Church to attend Reason Rally with special message for atheists

This could be in the line of a Jonathan Swift A Modest Proposal style stunt .

A display of the contrast ,on one hand ' Religion represented by the WBC with true biblical adherence ,lock stock and two smoking brimstone barrels .These are the people who achieved the impossible feat of getting FoxNews to defend gays

And in the other corner we have the Secularist an eerily much more familiar foe to the religious devout ,in such light some may well forget what they believe and follow their gut feelings before realizing what they've done .

But it's risky ,how the media paints it .Also do WBC generate much attention these days ?

All I can say is Good luck ! and I hope it's worth the nuisance

Comment 17 by zengardener :

Is that Captain Piccard?

It is Piccard and I thought it expresses exactly the sense of dread I feel about this idea . What can be achieved by this? other than perhaps elevating atheist to the second most distrusted group in the USA ,if we're lucky But who knows ? , it's said " all publicity is good publicity " or it could be an identification among extremist groups

@ EvilConservative
"I have a feeling that by the time the dust settles on this issue, we'll be ready about it in our history text books instead of our Science text books."

Are you really so sure ? You can reassure us that everything is going to be just fine .If you were religious such certainty would be expected after all god made the Earth for humans to use. But you are here RD.net so I'll assume your not.

Earth owes us nothing ,not even survival and there isn't another planet for us if your wrong .
It's an experiment where we're changing the atmospheric chemistry ,we're changing vast areas land use for agriculture oblivious for the most of the potential consequences.
An experiment and we're living in it

When I hear such flippant confidence I think of being a passenger with a drunk driver (The drivers here are Exxon ,Heartland institute,Koch et al ) you'll forgive me for not being too reassured

Are the lobbyist for the oil barons so sure AGW is false that they'll lobby congress to prevent any proactive measures.. Or is the regulations that might get in the way of profits that concerns them .What do you think ?

If you don't mind I'll just stick with what the Climate Scientist say and if my car breaks down I'll ask a mechanic and not a vet
