This season, celebrate reason


Atheist.org banner…so the New Jersey Billboard, sponsored by Atheists.org, invited.  The website claims that millions of atheists are closeted, choosing to go along to get along. In the end, this campaign–this claim–is really to fight for intolerance and ignorance, the site says. This war that they’ve taken upon themselves to fight (their words, not mine), is a war on false gods, false prophets and false promises. How does a person of faith respond to the assertion that Christmas (and Jesus and Christianity for that matter) is a lie; a fable?

In the end, the site says, humans have to accept reality…as reality. The assumption here is that since we can’t really prove anything in the Bible, we’re just gonna have to “know” what’s real just as we would know anything. I think they just made a case for faith.
