These are pictures that I took at the 2016 Reason Rally this afternoon. This was the largest atheist event in United States history. I want to get these up first to allow you to see what happened at the rally. My next post will be a review of the event and my thoughts about what I witnessed. Feel free to comment below, as always I love you guys!
“All thinking men are atheists.”
“It’s an incredible con job when you think about it, to believe something now in exchange for something after death. Even corporations with their reward systems don’t try to make it posthumous”
The last picture I took, but I wanted to lead off these pictures with this protester.
