If you live in Atlanta, be on the lookout for these two digital billboards, both of which will be running throughout the month of December:
“We humans in the Northern Hemisphere have been celebrating the Winter Solstice, a natural holiday, long before Christmas crashed the party,” says FFRF co-founder and Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “The Winter Solstice, on Dec. 21 this year, is the real reason for the season — the shortest, darkest day of the year, heralding the rebirth of the sun, the lengthening of days and the natural New Year.”FFRF member Jack Egger was pivotal in getting the billboard up. FFRF also has a chapter in the Atlanta area that works to spread freethought and secularism.
“If all of us had faith in science and humanism, we would improve life on Earth so fast,” says Egger. “By giving up supernaturalism, we all can have a more fulfilling life, with a brighter, more peaceful and predictable future.”
You have to appreciate any press release that includes the phrase “We humans…”
Here’s the question I’d like to know: How many Georgians will take offense to the simple two-word phrase? You know someone’s gonna be furious while driving down the highway.
