85-Year-Old Atheist Sponsors Billboard Reading ‘Enjoy Life Now: There Is No Afterlife’

Wayne Hensler, an atheist in his mid-80s, has decided to leave a “legacy for [his] grandchildren” by putting up a billboard showcasing his thoughts on the afterlife in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin. It reads “Enjoy Life Now: There Is No Afterlife”:

The billboard will be up for a month. But I suspect it’ll only take critics a few days before they complain about the message (“Enjoy life now? NEVER!”)

It’s not the first time Hensler has paid for this particular billboard message. When he did it in 2010, the sign was vandalized two weeks later.
