ATHIEST BILLBOARD: YOU DON’T NEED A GOD TO LOVE YOUR CHILDREN

Driving to work today, I was greeted with a new billboard along Harbor Blvd for Mother’s Day. It featured a lovely photo of a mother playing with her child. In big bold letters, the message was YOU DON’T NEED A GOD TO LOVE YOUR CHILDREN, and it was sponsored by some ‘skeptic’ group, another word these days for ‘atheists’.

Clearly, atheists are not at all content to simply disbelief (which is their claim, by the way – an outright lie). Atheists oftentimes are both anti-God activists and anti-believer crusaders. Apparently, this God that they claim to disbelieve the existence of bothers them SO MUCH, they spend real big money on campaigns to celebrate their belief in nothing.

Some atheists now have formed churches so that they can gather and worship nothing. There are groups of skeptical atheists who get together with families and friends to fellowship with each other over nothing. Of course, this kind of nonsense has transformed simple disbelief into a faith of its own. The faith of belief in nothing.

Sure, atheists will tell you that they don’t believe in a God, but then ask them: Is there a God out there?  The atheists who say “no” have made the most irrational statement about faith imaginable, because one cannot know that somewhere out in the vastness of the universe there is NO GOD. Of course it’s possible.

The atheist who tells you “I don’t know, I want evidence” is saying that he or she is open to considering the evidence, and is therefore NOT an atheist after all but an agnostic. Agnosticism is sitting on the fence, waiting for a lightning bolt to hit. It’s at the very least more reasonable than outright atheism, but it doesn’t get the agnostic anywhere at all.

So next time you see one of these anti-God, anti-church, anti-believer messages on a billboard, remember that the people who paid for it are usually angry with God (and therefore the faithful as well) and are on a crusade to get others to be angry as well.

To those who disbelieve; I have no desire to force you to believe anything. I urge you to allow us the same courtesy, to believe in and trust God because we have a right to. That’s all. Peace.

    “The atheist who tells you “I don’t know, I want evidence” is saying that he or she is open to considering the evidence, and is therefore NOT an atheist after all but an agnostic.”

    No, anyone who doesn’t believe in any gods is an atheist. If you’re going to insist that any degree of doubt makes an atheist an agnostic, I’ll hold you and every believer to the same standard, and suddenly 99% of the world are “agnostics” — and the term becomes worthless.

    By the way, if you think that billboard is such a threat to your belief, I hope you complain about all the religious billboards all over the US, and “in god we trust” on money, and “under god” in the pledge of allegiance. But somehow I doubt it.

    If you truly have no beef with atheists, then why did you spend so much time writing an article that mocks them?

    And what’s with the quote marks? What does that mean?

    Say what you mean and mean what you say.

    The billboards are an invitation to other atheists (anyone without a belief in a god) to be open about their beliefs. Only when we are free to acknowledge atheism without fear will we be able to stop the encroachment of religious dogma into the fabric of civil society. Don’t think atheists are discriminated against? Seven states ban an atheist from holding any office!

    I you have a problem with atheists putting up bill boards then you better also have a problem with “in God we trust” on public grounds and currency. With regards to conversion, if Christians can have their own television channels, door to door missionaries handing a out flyers, and mega churches, atheists can as well. It’s a free country.

    Typo RIGHT in the headline. Easily discounts the rest as wannabe journalism.

    At least Arby Bee is honest and calls atheism a “belief” that requires faith to believe in. It takes more faith to be an atheist than it does to believe that there is a creator God, because you have to discount and or ignore the complexity of life itself and science of irreducible complexity.
