Essay: God rained on the depressing "Reason Rally"

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

The 2012 Reason Rally was billed as the largest secular event in history.[1] According to the Religion News Service 8,000-10,000 people showed up for the rally. [2] The Atlantic reported 20,000 individuals were in attendance.[3]

Although the event was billed as the largest secular event in world history, strictly speaking that is not accurate. Communist countries have embraced state atheism. And Marxist-Leninism along with Maoism explicitly adhered to the atheist worldview and communist countries have engaged in militant atheism and religious persecution (see: Atheism and communism).[4] China still engages in religious persecution. Communist countries often had large/massive rallies. For example, at Tiananmen Square during the Cultural Revolution, the atheist Mao Zedong greeted 1,500 Red Guards and waved to 800,000 Red Guards and spectators below. [5]

The Almighty caused it to rain on the "Reason Rally"

God humbles the Reason Rally, a national atheist rally in America, via a rainy day as can be seen HERE and HERE and HERE

The Almighty rained on your parade atheists. What are you going to do about it?

The atheists looked like a sad group of wet puppies. If only they had brought umbrellas!

Although the rally was billed as "the largest gathering of the secular movement in world history" and many American atheists claiming that they are an oppressed minority (See Atheist whining), atheists/agnostics were not able to generate the crowd that Glenn Beck was able to gather for his Restoring Honor Rally.[6]

Atheism, meteorological science and the Reason Rally

According to CNN, the Reason Rally experienced rain due to thunderstorms moving through the area at the time of the event.[7] Despite the wide availability of weather forecasts provided by meteorological scientists, pictures from the event show that a large percentage of the crowd was rain soaked due to not having umbrellas for the event.[8][9]

Mr. Atheist, why did so few of the atheists have umbrellas at the "Reason Rally"? Evidently, many atheists are not familiar with the scientific discipline of meteorology whose practitioners give regular weather forecasts with various probabilities of rain.

Weight management practices of the attendees of the Reason Rally

When one compares pictures the attendees of the Reason Rally with attendees of the 2014 Cfan Christ For All Nations gospel crusade held in Barundi, Africa, there was a significant higher proportion of attendees of the Reason Rally who were overweight/obese.[10][11][12][13] According to medical science, excess weight/obesity poses serious health risks.

The traditional African diet is healthier than many Western World individuals' diets and Africa has some of the lowest obesity rates in the world.[14]

A depressed atheist thinking about the Reason Rally

God caused it to rain during the Reason Rally. And not many people showed up compared to Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally.

In addition, I can't answer Shockofgod's question nor can I answer the 15 questions of the Question evolution! campaign.

What two words can trigger extreme anger in Richard Dawkins?

Question: What two words are able to trigger extreme anger in Richard Dawkins?

Hint: Go HERE.

Jesus Christ said to forgive your enemies. Apparently, agnosticism/atheism have no such commandment!
