Today is the Reason Rally and it looks like it’s gonna be thunderstorms all day long. No doubt the wingnuts will declare this to be God’s judgment and warning to us to change our evil ways — because, of course, it’s so incredibly unusual for it to rain in Washington, DC in the spring. And that claim will only reinforce the necessity of fostering a more rational view of the world.
Seriously, a rainstorm is the best God can do? In the old days he supposedly rained down fire from the heavens, sent plagues of locusts, wiped out cities — and now all he can do is spit out a mundane rainstorm? I think God should prove his existence by opening a giant hole at the national mall and swallowing us all up. Go ahead, God — I double dog dare ya.
He won’t, of course. But he has a hell of an excuse — non-existence.
