New Radio Ad Tells Atheists ‘Where To Go’

The United Coalition of Reason, known for putting atheist billboards around the country, has announced a new radio campaign telling atheists “where to go.”

Thankfully, it isn’t Hell.

You can hear the ad here (MP3). The text is below:

We’d like to tell atheists where to go! Not just atheists actually… but agnostics, freethinkers, Humanists, and anyone who is just plain non-religious. You can go straight to… the Secular Directory at GodlessGroups.org. That’s GodlessGroups dot O-R-G. The place to find other godless people just like you!

America today is bursting with atheist, agnostic, freethought, and Humanist groups. If you don’t believe in a god and are seeking to meet others of like mind and interests or just want to find groups that can give you a larger voice in our culture, you need GodlessGroups.org. You can find everything from education groups to support groups to atheist churches! Wherever you live in the United States or Canada you’ll find groups for you. When you get to the site, just type in your city and state and, just like that, all of those nearby godless groups will pop up.

We live to tell atheists where to go! So go right now to GodlessGroups dot O-R-G. GodlessGroups dot O-R-G.

If you can’t tell, the ad promotes the Secular Directory, a new website that shows you all the atheist/secular groups in your area:

Have fun reading the 11th annual “Naughty & Nice list.”

This year, you better not waste your time on Tractor Supply Company… where I know you’re all planning your holiday shopping:

Video Footage from Greece City Council Meetings Shows Why Non-Christians Were Unwelcome There

Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Town of Greece v. Galloway, a case that could decide the fate of invocation prayers at city council meetings.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State is arguing the case for the plaintiffs and they’ve put together a wonderful website offering video evidence of what they’re opposed to.

Like prayers being delivered at a meeting when children are present — how is that not a form of indoctrination?:

A Songwriter and an Astrophysicist See the Universe as a Beach Ball: A Beautiful Riff on Intergalactic Isolation

For decades now, scientists — at SETI and elsewhere — have been sending signals into space for the express purpose of contacting distant civilizations. We have yet to hear anything back.

In this simple, beautiful, Saganesque musing on the vastness of space and time, singer/songwriter Peter Mulvey explores why — with an appreciative nod to his friend Vlad, an astrophysicist. Mulvey’s performance took place at the Kaufman Center in Kansas City, Missouri, this summer, as part of the TEDxKC conference. It isn’t an atheism-related video, per se, but its poetic emphasis on the insignificance of our “pale blue dot,” in the scheme of things, might give pause to theists who believe that Earth is the pinnacle of Creation:

After Teen Jesus, Another Halloween Costume Controversy: Seven-Year-Old in Virginia Dresses as KKK Member

“It’s supposed to be white with white. Black with black. Man with woman and all of that,” Jessica Black of Craigsville, Virginia, explained to her local TV station. A reporter had asked her why she would let her seven-year-old son dress as a KKK member for Halloween — and her answer was, in part, that it’s a valued family tradition. Nothing wrong with the Ku Klux Klan, Ms. Black emphasized.
