Agnostics and Atheists Set up the Fan

As in, the shit's gonna hit:

Atheists, agnostics to put ads on buses | freep.com | Detroit Free Press
"Don't believe in God? You're not alone," reads the ads that are to be placed on a dozen buses across the region. They were paid for by the Detroit Area Coalition of Reason, which spent $5,250 on the ads with the help of their national group, the United Coalition of Reason. It's part of a nationwide effort that has targeted more than 20 cities across the U.S. by placing such ads on buses, subways and billboards, organizers said.

I'm a little surprised tho. I've considered myself an Agnostic for some time, but I certainly don't disbelieve in God. At least, some sort of higher power. Oh well, there I go again, defying convention.

I think that it's important particularly for an atheist to examine where their moral framework comes from. Some will adopt the title just to be "counterculture" and have no clue what it actually means.
