Godless-in-Chicago-Mobile

Some atheists advertise on billboards…

Those atheists are not named Rob Sherman. He decked out his entire Sherman-mobile:

GodVan

He’s promoting his blog.

And himself :)

And he’ll be driving in the fourth of July parades in various Chicago suburbs.

If he accidentally runs over a Christian child, our entire movement will be set back four centuries.

According to Michael Miner of the Chicago Reader, Chicago Now pays its bloggers $5 per 1,000 hits.

I wonder: What do the Science Bloggers get? Is it comparable?

And how do I get me a piece of that action?

    Too bad everything but the lettering on the door smacks of photoshop. Maybe it’s a concept of what he wants to do?

    Good on him. I’d go for something like, “Atheism: Nothing beats being rational!”, though. I can come up with a lot of things that beat being “right”.

    ['Tis definitely Photoshopped, BTW.]

    Maybe I’ll spot the blogmobile this weekend! I’m not a huge fan of shameless self-promotion, but I like spreading the ‘godless gospel’ ;)

    A) Don’t give fundamentalists ideas.

    B) There are no christian children, only children of christian parents.

    $5/1000!!!! That’s about 10X what I get through Google ads, etc (though my traffic is not at all targeted).

    Wow, a whole $5 per 1000 hits? I’d be able to afford lunch after a couple of months.

    The fundies have been doing this sort of thing for a long time – no matter where you live, you’ve seen the Jesus mobiles. This is an interesting approach for atheists to try. I hope he stays safe.

    Yeah, that’s almost 100% Photoshop. Pity, really, because I’d love to see some heads explode as he drove by.

    Perhaps if he made a quick video of the vehicle making a turn, it would convince the skeptics. :)

    Why would he pretend to do his van all up? That’s a pretty poor shameless promotion if you ask me.

    If you open the pdf he linked to in the article, you can tell it’s definitely a digitally edited photo of a blank truck. I’m not saying he’s not going to have something like that by the 4th, but as of that post he surely did not.

    Either way, I’m glad he’s raising awareness about godlessness.

  • Wendy

    It’s not even Photoshop, it’s MS Paint.

  • Heidi

    Well, I clicked and went to his site. Spreading atheism is a good cause, even if it’s just done in Photoshop.

    The photo may have been altered, but he really did drive the RV with the signs on it. No kids were run over, but he did get booed.
