QuoteOfficial Update from the Metroplex Atheists Chairman - Thursday, February 19, 2009The good news is that we have agreed to work with the new national organization, United Coalition of Reason, to put up not one, but two billboards in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, one in Dallas and one in Fort Worth.We will receive full support in maximizing our exposure with the two billboards, including substantial monetary contributions, support for a website, an 800 number, help with local and national public relations, and spots on local radio. Radio spots have not been used in connection with an atheist billboard before so we will be the first. It's a package that will give us the most "bang for the buck" and will allow us to highly leverage the generous donations given by those who want to see an atheist billboard become a reality.The bad news is that the billboards will not be up until April. Between now and then the national organization will complete its preparations and we can work to include other local non-theist organizations, in addition to the Dallas-Plano Atheist Meetup Group and Metroplex Atheists, in the new Dallas/Fort Worth Coalition of Reason or DFWCoR.Contributors to this campaign can be very proud, not only are they going to put up the first atheist billboards in Dallas and Fort Worth, they are also going to positively affect the entire metroplex non-theist community for years to come.
Quote from: "seasonsofmadness"Glad this is coming to my state. I'll probably make a trip to Dallas in April, so maybe I'll get to see it. We'll probably be hearing a lot of controversy over this one though.
QuoteI find it mistifying that in this age of information, some people still deny the scientific history of our existence.

Quote from: "VanReal"That's a great point Whit, there is the fact of people "knowing" and then of people really knowing. I think it would be okay though, after all maybe there is strength in numbers, even if we have itty bitty numbers right now.
