Last year I reported on their belligerent positive affirmation of God’s non-existence which read:
At this season of the Winter Solstice, may reason prevail.Now they placed ads that state, “Yes, Virginia ... There is no God.”
There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell.
There is only our natural world.Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.
Freedom From Religion Foundation’s co-founder Annie Laurie Gaylor again affirmed their “faith” based dogmatheism in stating, “The main purpose is to express something that's true that doesn't get said very much -- there is no god -- and it shouldn't be a taboo…If people are mad about it, it's because it's true.”
Just how long will they continue making dogmatheistic assertions about God’s non-existence without evidence?
Do not misunderstand, I find the honesty refreshing but I thought that merely expressing “faith” based assertions was not the manner in which supposedly evidence based atheism function. I know, I know; it is, it is.
Since atheists are not interested in influencing children—wink wink, nudge nudge—“Yes, Virginia ... There is no God” refers to a September 21, 1897 AD edition of The New York Sun which included the phrase “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” Thus, the Freedom From Religion Foundation has pictured Santa Clause positively affirming God’s non-existence.
The true Santa:
