Project Reason Video Contest (revised after the contest)
Our 2010 Submission:
No, we did not win, but we had great fun creating a witty view of superstitious beliefs. Elaine and Duane employed some sparkling comedic timing.

(the video entries are below the printed rules) My favorite from the 2012 entries is called, “Conflict” by somebody named, Risenape. I particularly like the last line: (We should) “live with questions that may never be answered, rather than answers that may not be questioned. Choose a side.”
I also enjoyed “Genesis Creation Visualized – Scientifically” Created by TheSkepticalMagician.

About Project Reason: Noted atheist author Sam Harris created the website Project Reason. This is from the “About” page on the website:
Project Reason is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation devoted to spreading scientific knowledge and secular values in society. Drawing on the talents of the most prominent and creative thinkers across a wide range of disciplines, Project Reason seeks to encourage critical thinking and wise public policy through a variety of interrelated projects. The foundation will convene conferences, produce films, sponsor scientific studies and opinion polls, publish original research, award grants to other charitable organizations, and offer material support to religious dissidents and public intellectuals — all with the purpose of eroding the influence of dogmatism, superstition, and bigotry in our world.
While the foundation is devoted to fostering critical thinking generally, we believe that religious ideas require a special focus. Both science and the arts are built upon cultures of vigorous self-criticism; religious discourse is not. As a result, religious dogmatism still reigns unchallenged in almost every society on earth—dividing humanity from itself, inflaming conflict, preventing wise public policy, and diverting scarce resources. One of the primary goals of Project Reason is to change this increasingly unhealthy status quo.
Project Reason is not affiliated with The Reason Foundation or REASON® magazine.
