  1. We have had an outpouring of enthusiasm for our sign. It is direct and informative! I hope we will do another soon.

  2. Now I do not find the sign amusing. I have a lot of headaches up here and ir you want the stars to shine and the moon too, plus nice weather I need a little cooperation. A nice bull sacrifice or an ox or cheesie-crispie can't you even afford a small goat?

    GOD, call me weewee, no yehweh.

  3. A recent site discussed the ad campaigns. http://www.alternet.org/story/150399/%22spreading_the_good_news_about_atheism%22%3A_why_we_need_atheist_ad_campaigns/comments/

    In part it asked why we are doing this. Indeed the photo journalist who covered the sign for the Budgeteer asked us, "If you don't believe in any gods why do you bother with this sign?"

    We told her in a kindly fashion and here is my reason:

    We are using ads in a variety of ways. WHY? It is not enough that religion carry on and just accept us.

    Remember religion brings us all diasters, book burning, hate, group isolation and war. But for me the biggest reason that religion MUST GO, is that it perpetuates itself so cunningly.

    Each religious generation tries to pass on to innocent and vulnerable children, the fallacious, magical distortion of the best reality we know. IT IS SERIOUS.

  4. Atheists are so commendable, urging people to stop the nonsense and accept only that which is understandable by the rules of simple observation and science. Most are totally unaware of their simple act of faith: 'Only this material world exists!'
    Way back in 1883 Edwin Abbott wrote 'Flatland' to show how contiguous dimensional worlds leave inhabitants of lower worlds totally unable to even imagine any higher world exists. In their Creed Christians acclaim God as 'Creator of all things, seen and unseen'.
    Recently, the book 'Techie Worlds' utilizies the unidentified extra dimensions of Superstring Theory to examine the teachings of Jesus and His Church.. We all agree, after a soldier is blown to bits by high explosives we cannot physically explain the 'resurrection of his body'. But 'Techie Worlds' presents a logical and mechanistic way he can get his body back in a higher world. 'Trinity' is ridiculous in our world, but 'Techie Worlds' explains it in a simple way. 'Soul' has a similar problem; it teaches that men are like the Deity. Many other 'ridiculous' concepts are explained, including creation, the Kingship of Jesus, war in Heaven, the logic of redemption, etc, avoiding the language of the pulpit in favor of the talk of engineers and auto mechanics.
    'Techie Worlds' (available from Amazon) is a direct challenge to atheists, making them aware of their act of faith. It's ideas are not provable, but show that this guy who lived 2,000 years ago held notions that can only be true if such 'higher' worlds exist. How did He know?
    So 'thinking' people have two reasonable acts of faith to choose from. The 'only this world' view is greatly lacking,especially for this life on Earth.
