Arizona assaulted by 11 atheism billboards.

(click ads)
Via the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Eleven billboards in all will be up for the next month—nine in the Phoenix area and two in Tucson (home of Dickman's Meat). Jesus, they need an ad agency—those layouts/that typeface are yucky.
Via The Friendly Atheist.
Previous Atheism Ads:
• Jesus compared to Zeus and bigfoot.
• Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are Good Without God.

"I figured it out!"
"What will make these billboards really pop and get others to join in our beliefs!"
"Which is..."
"Outer glow. Damn I'm good."

I'm an atheist, and that "we're too old for imaginary friends" line gives me pause. That's the kind of thing we say to each other in our secret snobby atheist meetings, where we hoard all the good beer. It's not for public consumption.

I think the ads are ugly, but it's brilliant. Living in the Bible Belt, all you hear is that atheists are evil people with no moral compass. This shows just average Joe Blow atheist as a good, decent person.

It's a much better campaign, even with the ugly typeface, than most church ads.

They need crummy layouts and lame fonts to attract the attention of stupid people who believe in God. If the billboards are interesting and sophisticated, fundamentalists will cock their heads like confused dogs and drive right past.

Amazing how often atheists' non-religion manifests itself as anti-religion. Really makes the atheists look like twats.

As a lapsed Catholic, I approve these messages.

May they illuminate far and wide... AMEN!

An individual's relationship with his God (or lack thereof) should be like their intimate relations with their partner: private, kept within the four walls of home and not shared with others.

The problem with any belief system is the need for its devotees to share their enlightenment (and attempt to convert) others.

Keep it to yourself, folks.

This demonstrates pretty clearly the double standard that the religious will rarely acknowledge, much less speak against. How exactly does putting up a few billboards constitute an "assault?" An atheist who writes a book or files a lawsuit is a "militant." A Christian who murders doctors, commits arson, beats people up or incites violence against people he disagrees with is "devout." If you don't agree with them, you are "oppressing" them. What a joke. Talk to those people in Iran who were horsewhipped for drinking the sacramental wine if you want to see someone suffering religious persecution.
