On The Friendly Atheist, Hemant Mehta has unveiled a new, completely inoffensive atheist billboard that will be used to advertise Skepticon, the freethought convention in Springfield, Missouri in November. This is not a joke, folks:
Now I like teh kittehs as much as the next person, but is there a point here? Or is this just a nefarious use of felids to make people think kindly about atheism? Or could it be that we’ve gotten so much flak for relatively innocuous billboards that are still seen as militant that we’ve retreated to the ultimate refuge of cuteness and lovability? Regardless, for some reason I can’t get behind it.
