Godless Ads

"Don't believe in God? You are not alone."

These words are part of a coordinated multi-organizational advertising campaign designed to raise awareness about people who don't believe in a god. The King and Queen size ads proclaiming this message will appear tomorrow on the outsides of a dozen buses traveling throughout the Detroit area as far north as Pontiac and Auburn Hills, as far west as Walled Lake, as far east as Troy and as far south as downtown Detroit. Their presence will continue for a month.

Big Rab, in Dumbarton is thinking of a similar campaign on McColl's buses on the High Street in Dumbarton, however he's planning on tempering it with the subheading, "But Ryan's Believe in Christmas"!

The people who have got obviously too much money to waste Campaigners say, "We want people to understand that humanists, freethinkers, agnostics and atheists are essentially like everyone else."

Rock on man! I never thought of it like that!

I think they did it in London, too. I can hardly believe that Detroit will be fazed by this.

Probably not but I suspect it might attract some people to one of the Detroit Coalition of Reason member groups which is the idea.

Actually, American atheists have a very hard time being accepted. There have even been legal campaigns mounted to prevent atheist messages.
