Since when did atheism get the sole license over reason? (Especially considering the volumes of philosophical thought that have been written on the subject). The title of the conference alone is incredibly arrogant. It would be nice for the world to wake up and realize that Dawkins is little more than a hyperbolic anti-religious bigot, who inspires legions of online zealots in the exact manner he purports to oppose.
I realize that Dawkins is an outspoken atheist but in this essay the word is not mentioned once. The points he makes are, well... reasonable. If I were in DC, I'd be there. I do hope they spend more time being inclusive rather than the you may not like the rally for reason approach.
