(PICTURES) New Jersey Lincoln Tunnel Atheism Billboard: Story of Christ a "Myth"

by the Left Coast Rebel

Can I get a few things out of the air before I discuss the New Jersey billboard proclaiming the story of Christmas (virgin birth, the whole kit-and-caboodle, I assume) as a "myth"?

1). It's their right to do so, free speech and all.

2). Imagine, just for a second, if the billboard declared Islam a "myth" and hinting at is as being an absurd credo? You would never see it, and anyone that pulled it off would be threatened with death by "tolerant" Muslims.

At first glance, the billboard simply looks like a classic nativity scene with the three wise men riding camels and of course, the manger. Above this depiction is "You KNOW it's a Myth. This Season, Celebrate REASON!" Here's a pic of the New Jersey atheist billboard:


And a closer picture of the New Jersey atheist billboard:

This "statement" automatically brought some thoughts to my mind ---

The problem with the United States is not adherence to the Christian faith but rather the soulless, Godless, worship of moral relativism and the Almighty State that has replaced traditional belief systems and is now so pervasive. That's why a tyrant like B.O. can be elected.

Which brings me to another thought - would you rather your child to be able to recite the story of the virgin birth or "Barack Hussein Obama, MMM, MMM, MMM?"

  4. Ever tried reasoning with an Atheist? I rather have teeth pulled without novacaine They're the ones that believe all morals are equal even when they contradict each other which proves moral relativism is absurd (what we call a logical contradiction in math and logic), but they still attached themselves to that "faith". The problem with athiests is they have religions, it's just religions without deities, lust, money, power (just look at liberals on this one), fame, trees, animals, stars, sun, moon, and mainly themselves with the most proposerous reasons. To claim they celebrate, or even respect, reason is just nonsense.

    As an atheist I must have missed that memo about godlessness suddenly becoming the de facto belief system. Not sure if I follow the connection to Obama that is implied, however...

    I could easily say that reasoning with a Christian is aggravating, but that doesn't make it so. Should you want to deride us atheists, a cogent argument would be appreciated.

  6. Everyone has a belief system -- no one was there at the beginning of "time." It takes faith to believe that some little blobs decided to morf into life. (For the life of me, I don't know why they think it might happen after millions of years.) It takes faith to believe that the Bible's account is true- that there is a loving Heavenly Creator. I, for one, do believe that there is a God who created all things, who was born of a virgin, who died for us. The Bible's words: "The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God' "
    The United States is going down the path of what Jeff said- "the soulless, Godless, worship of moral relativism and the Almighty State."
    The effects are very evident in our culture.

    By the way, I witnessed it time after time, there's hardly an theist in the chemotherapy room. Telling, don't you think?

  7. Jeff, yes, I meant "atheist" and I have been in a chemo room time after time (as a patient.) Have you?
    No, I strongly disagree with you as well, it does take faith to believe that these lifeless blobs would morf over "million" of years. Jeff, you might consider what you believe as "science" is flawed. No one was there at the beginning. No one can prove that the blob would morf. And it's true no one can prove creation. But there is evidence to "intelligent" design. Because evolution (with a small e) is true, doesn't make Evolution (with a capital E) true. Species evolve, it's true. But species haven't ever turned into other species.
    I remember scientists predicting a population explosion that was going to produce mass starvation on the globe. What happened there? Scientists have their agendas too, just like politicians.

  8. And Jeff, I do believe the whole Bible, not just some verse here and there that happens to fit. You either believe the whole or none of it.

    No, I have not been in a chemo room, but that wouldn't change anything if I were. Should I ever encounter myself in a life or death situation like that, I am no more likely to start believing in god than I am to start believing in Zeus, or Santa, or unicorns. So when folks like yourself insinuate that all it will take is a brush with death (or other bad things) to flip an atheist into a believer, you are misunderstanding just what atheism is, and assuming it can be switched by a single event like that.

    Not that there aren't some atheists who would switch, but when someone doesn't believe in god there is no special motivation that death brings to them to make them suddenly believe.

    "it does take faith to believe that these lifeless blobs would morf over "million" of years."

    Nope. You are wrong. Sorry to just say it flat-out like that, but you seem to just fundamentally misunderstand what science is and how it works. I don't doubt that you don't believe in evolution, but it isn't a matter of belief. Faith does not enter in to how science works. Never has. I'd take more time to detail why that sort of statement is incorrect, but I don't want to spend too much time if my comment won't even be posted.

    There is not evidence to intelligent design. If there were, science would accept it as a legitimate theory, which it does not. The best proofs ID can offer are half-truths, weak scriptural basis, misunderstanding of real science, etc.

    "I remember scientists predicting a population explosion that was going to produce mass starvation on the globe. What happened there? Scientists have their agendas too, just like politicians."

    I have no idea what you are referencing, and a cursory google reveals nothing. If this is a claim, it would help to link to an appropriate discussion about it.

    "You either believe the whole or none of it."

    Interestingly enough, I actually agree with you on that. A literal reading of the Bible, or none at all. (if you meant literal). I still don't think there is a god, but I can agree with that sentiment.
