Repent, atheists! Or be devoured by Cthulhu!

Charlie, an old friend of mine, went to the Reason Rally in DC this past weekend.  He knows I’m “into Cthulhu”, in his words, so he snapped the first picture below and sent it to me.  I thought it was damn funny, and my first thought was, “I wonder if that guy holding the sign is a Lovecraft eZine reader?”  then posted it to the eZine Facebook group.

And… yes!  Lovecraft eZine reader Dan Alban is the “Cthulhu Prophet”.  Pictures and videos of Dan mock-protesting those evil atheists are below, and here is a news article about the eventOrganizers had cordoned off a wide triangular area for protesters, but by 1 p.m., the only person in the protest pen was a young man promising that heretics would be devoured by Cthulhu, a fictional deity in H.P. Lovecraft novels…

Last, but not least, is a picture of my friend Charlie sitting next to PZ Myers.

  1. I feel saddened that there were none of the fellowship there to spread the good news of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

  2. GREAT job Dan!!!

    BTW:

    FSM will be eaten by EOD and Cthulhu Cultists…in fact that’s what I had for dinner last night. Wasn’t flying at the time, however.

    • Mike. Small world! Thanks for your help that evening. I wasn’t sure I was in the right place until I got onto the shady grove train. Then I knew where I was. This weekend was the first time ever on a subway system.

  3. This is why I am an Abtheist….I suspect that there are indeed Outer gods responsible for creation but they treat all life as at best an annoyance….worshipping them is as futile as any cargo cult and could lead to actually getting their attention…..a result we certainly should not embrace…..

  4. The wife and I just booked steamship passage to Kadath, I’ll make sure and get a snap of the unhallowed pits where no dreams may reach. She can’t wait to ride the Shantak.

  5. I had my picture taken with him! I was wearing a shirt with an octopus print on it. I showed him the W.H. Pugmire book I had with me and we had a very nice conversation.

    I have quite a few great pics from the rally. Will post on my blog soon.

  6. It has been my observation that a lot of atheists tend to be fat, angry white men. Swing those verbal fists of fury, guys. Lash out with intense emotion at the enemies of “reason.” Huff, puff….

  7. I laughed my noggin off – great stuff! Well, there’s some human sacrifices, too, but mostly believing and worshipping! LOL Classic! You rock, my man! Glad to see the atheists found the humour in it!

  8. Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this
    post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.

    Thank you for sharing!
