Red Bank Humanists Put Up ‘Good Without God’ Billboard

The Red Bank Humanists (in New Jersey) have sponsored and put up their own billboard, modeled off the United Coalition of Reason model, encouraging like-minded people to come join them:

So far, no vandalism, so I’d consider the campaign a success!

    Red Bank? James ‘The Amazing’ Randi used to reside there.

    This is like half an hour from me. I might have to take a ride… :)

    How do you pronounce a dotted ‘h’? I don’t even know which language does that.

  • mikespeir

    They ought to make a billboard that reads, “HOW LONG WOULD YOU GUESS BEFORE SOME LOVING BELIEVER DEFACES THIS SIGN? redbankhumanists.org.”

      A contest/pool. The one that wins gets a selection of works by Dawkins, Hitchens and Harris…plus the same books will be donated to a local library of the winners choice.

    I worry that the fact that it has NOT been vandalized yet is a positive. The atheist/humanist groups should make it SOP to install (with permission of owner) a trail like camera so some nice images could be shared of the future vandals.

    • John Small Berries

      I agree. Most groups would judge the success of a billboard inviting
      people to “Join us!” by whether or not it attracted new members. To
      describe it as successful just because nobody’s
      defaced
      it is a rather depressing metric; I can’t even imagine how the bar could be set any lower than that.

    I grew up in a nearby town, Holmdel, and thinking back there were a fair number of skeptics among the adults (the High School library subscribed to Skeptical Inquirer [this was in the 1970s] and my bus driver handed out candy on Triskadekaphobia days [Fridays the 13, she was also on the town council]).

      Hmm…my cousin’s kids go to Holmdel HS…I might have to ask them to see if they still subscribe.

    I look for it when I’m there on Sunday for a meeting.

    Well the sign says “Humanist” instead of “Atheist”. If it was the other way, you would have already been vandalized. fundamentalist aren’t the brightest bulbs.
