Hat Tip: Mike from wretchedsinner.blogspot.com for the design :-)

Not really 'design', is it? More like graffiti really.

But hey; any publicity is good publicity, eh?

Cheers,

What is the purpose or intended use for these posters?

Nohm said...

Tim,

It's my opinion that the purpose of the posters is:

"Hey, fellow non-believers... you're not alone."

And

"The idea that non-believers are hedonistic nihilistic heathens with no morality is hyperbole at best, completely untrue at worst."

Nohm said...

Oh, just realized that I didn't see Trish's version of the poster.

I *assume* Tim was asking about the original poster, but if he wasn't, I apologize and my answer does not apply.

I don't think I was clear in my question. I am familiar with the campaign in New York by the atheist group. I did not know if you were planning to post this "corrected" version anywhere?

Fish with Trish said...

Nope I'm not planning on it. It would probably be very expensive to run something like this, ya know. Besides, there's no need to -the Coalition of Reason group has already opened the door for folks to start thinking about God. :-)

I wonder what happened to all those who (especially in New York City) started searching for God and getting religious after the 9-11 attack. It's amazing how we forget about God when we are doing good, and how we run to Him when we "think we really need Him", when in reality we need Him all the time. If these people keep this up maybe God might have to give us a "reminder".

Awesome. I love it!

Actually, Matt, I believe it's a single graffito.

You think you're so smrt...

Esly Carrero said...

Can you add this to the list of gospel tracts along with the new doggit IQ test? :)

It'd be nice for all the New Yorkers who like to give out tracts.

:)

Someone should rent a billboard sign next to the original & place one there. hee-hee.

ExPatMatt said...

I AM smrt, Frodo. We both are. In all ways.

To put it another way; wearesmrt.com pletely.




PS. shhhh!

@frank - everyone didn't "run" to god after 9/11 I was an atheist before that happened, while it happened, and after.

Well, in Cincinnati, various religious people didn't like that kind of poster at all.

So, they threatened the people who put it up.

Is that an example of how people are "good WITH your god"?

Godless Billboard Moved After Threats on the WCPO.com site.

"We weren't given the landowner's identity or precise details," reported Fred Edwords, national director of the United Coalition of Reason. "Nor did we pursue them. It was sufficient to learn that multiple, significant threats had been received and that Lamar would act quickly to alleviate the problem. Lamar was most apologetic to us regarding the situation. It was a development they hadn't expected. Nor had we. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before."

"Everything that has happened shows just how vital our message is," said Shawn Jeffers, co-coordinator for the Cincinnati Coalition of Reason. "It proves our point, that bigotry against people who don't believe in a god is still very real in America. Only when we atheists, agnostics and humanists come together and go public about our views will people have a chance to learn that we too are part of the community and deserve respect.
