Today is the National Day of Prayer. Today is also the National Day of Reason.
Take your pick.
Or take both.
How is that possible, you ask? If you’re not a believer then obviously you wouldn’t choose Prayer Day and if you’re not an atheist then why would you want to observe a Day of Reason?
I believe you can.
The National Day of Reason was created by the American Humanist Association, a member of the Secular Coalition and The Washington Area Secular Humanists. The coalition lobbies for atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, etc. They take offense at the idea that a government endorsed “day of prayer” has been set aside in a country where 20 percent of the people , according to a Pew Foundation poll, are “nones” or those who are not affiliated with any religion.
