A Sign From the Saint Louis Coalition of Reason

A little blue dot appeared roadside in our red state yesterday.

Yes, local disbelievers can now find other like-minded folks.

Most such signs get vandalized pretty quickly. Let’s see how accepting our own community is.

    I love this billboard. It is much better than the previous There's Probably no God… which always felt too wishy-washy. (I thought it was very appropriate for the UK with it's Anglican tradition, but way too weak for the US's more robust evangelicalism)

    It also appeals to the normal human need to be part of a group. It's an active invitation to join in. The old one was almost an injunction to drop out which might appeal to some, but definitely not all. This, in my opinion, is the right approach.

    I am so happy to see this! Glad my donations are being spent wisely!

    Wonderful!

    I still expect the yahoo's to get all outraged and offended (just as they have in OKC)

    I just saw another one of these billboards spring up along another major St. Louis highway. I commend those who chose this wording.

    On Tuesday, campaigners announced plans for an atheist advertising campaign to appear on the side of buses with the message: "There is probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life." The campaign, which was launched by TV comedy writer Ariane Sherine, blogging on Commentisfree.co.uk, hoped to raise £5,500 from supporters, which Dawkins had pledged to match with his own money, but by yesterday public donations had already raised more than £96,000.
