Didn't get much of a chance to talk to you guys, but it was a hell of a time, and great meeting everyone.

Definitely going to make the haul to CA for next year.

Great Time / Visit

I really had a wonderful time, I am sorry I wasn't able to spend As much time with Brian, Kelly, Rook, mrgawn....ect (damn that list could go on forever)

But Your also Correct in pointing out, that NO ONE gave Anyone from RRS (or any other Part of any of these wonderful groups that came together under this Umbrella) a hard time, or thought one was Better then any other. I think it is basicly because we all know that it takes Alot of different Ppl working alot of differant Angles inside a movement, to get the common Goals accomplished.

Again, "Thank you!", I had a wonderful time, and I look forward to doing as much as "we" can, to help, ALL of this movement, and struggle, to See and eventualy end the NEED at some point, for such talks as we are having Today. But Until that day comes, It is so nice to see, and Know so many Rational Thinkers, in One place and so close to our Nations Capital! (even if they are making it look and feel more like DISNEYLAND there) Peace & 143

It's the other way around. Dawkins was wondering who had stolen his wallet all day, hence the quirky smile and Rich over there was pissed that he got found out.

MY PICTURES FROM THE

MY PICTURES FROM THE CONVENTION: A short recap from my point of view. I came to this convention mainly to meet the rational response squad members. Sure, meeting Dawkins and other celebs was great, but I wanted to finally meet with a group of people who have been part of my life for about 2 years now. Needless to say it was absoulutely one of the best weekends I've had in a long time. You mother fuckers are the best.

This convention has left me energized, and ready to keep fighting irrationality. We are growing in numbers, we are getting bolder, and stronger. Every day more and more atheists are coming out of the closet and starting to realize that something needs to be done about religious extremism. This convention was proof that we are here and we are here to stay. No longer can the theists dictate our social and political discourse without a fight.

Although there were no single moments of the convention that were better than others, the highlight of the weekend for me (outside of meeting other RRS members: Sapient, Yellow, Rook, Razorcade, Rich Rodriguez, Kelly, HealthyAddict, Brian 37, Hambydammit (sp?), Tomcat, Mr GAWN, Greydon Square, Everlastinggobstopper, Comedy Jesus, ShaunPhilly, and others) was meeting and conversing with Matthew Chapman (Charles Darwin's great great grandson). To shake the hand of a man who is directly related to THE MAN was absolutely inspiring.

I want to thank all of you for making this one hell of a fucking weekend. Cheers, and stay rational everyone.

Sorry Rook, I didn't have the nice recording equipment your film crew had. Smiling  But I believe the film crew caught it all on tape, perhaps it will make it through the editing cuts.  Anyway, you guys fucking rock.. Keep up the good work and stay in touch.

One wonders how many years of telling preachy theists to "shut yer gob" it takes to win from their own lips the name "EverlastingGobstopper". Tongue out
