Launching the Columbia Coalition of Reason!

21 Nov

Today marks the first day of the Columbia Coalition of Reason campaign! We’ve launched two billboards around town that you can see here:

“Don’t believe in God? You are not alone.” Is the message. We meant for it to be non-offensive (if that’s possible) since we are trying to let other atheists out there know that we exist. We’re not saying your god doesn’t exist, we’re not calling people stupid for holding such beliefs, we simply want to reach out to others like ourselves who might feel isolated and alone.

It will be interesting to see how the public reacts.  A Charleston group did the same thing earlier in 2009 and recieved a big out pouring of support. Hopefully the Columbia community will be just as supportive!

    Having no beliefs in dieties does not make a person a somewhat lonely and pathetic creature during the accepted holidays. Although I feel sorry for those bound to religious superstitions of the past, I can enjoy the good feelings generated at this time of year without their beliefs.

    Gods play no part of my life. Except for being sad that so many of our fellow humans are still a primitive group, why should they?

    Well done, Columbia!
