Atheist group targets Muslims, Jews with ‘myth’ billboards in Arabic and Hebrew

By Dan Merica, CNN

(CNN) – The billboard wars between atheists and believers have raged for years now, especially around New York City, and a national atheist group is poised to take the battle a step further with billboards in Muslim and Jewish enclaves bearing messages in Arabic and Hebrew.

American Atheists, a national organization, will unveil the billboards Monday on Broadway in heavily Muslim Paterson, New Jersey and in a heavily Jewish Brooklyn neighborhood, immediately after the Williamsburg Bridge.

“You know it’s a myth … and you have a choice,” the billboards say. The Patterson version is in English and Arabic, and the Brooklyn one in English and Hebrew. To the right of the text on the Arabic sign is the word for God, Allah. To the right of the text on the Hebrew sign is the word for God, Yahweh.

Dave Silverman, the president of American Atheists, said the signs are intended to reach atheists in the Muslim and Jewish enclaves who may feel isolated because they are surrounded by believers.

“Those communities are designed to keep atheists in the ranks,” he says. “If there are atheists in those communities, we are reaching out to them. We are letting them know that we see them, we acknowledge them and they don't have to live that way if they don’t want to.”

CNN’s Belief Blog: The faith angles behind the biggest stories

Silverman says the signs advertise the American Atheists’ upcoming convention and an atheist rally, called the Reason Rally, in Washington next month.

Atheists have long pointed to surveys that suggest atheists and agnostics make up between 3% and 4% of the U.S. population. That number increases when Americans unaffiliated with any religion are included. The Pew Center’s U.S. Religious Landscape Survey found that 16% are unaffiliated, though only a fraction of those are avowed atheists and agnostics.

Silverman acknowledges that the pair of new billboards will likely cause a stir.

“People are going to be upset,” he says. “That is not our concern.”

“We are not trying to inflame anything,” he continued. “We are trying to advertise our existence to atheist in those communities. The objective is not to inflame but rather to advertise the atheist movement in the Muslim and Jewish community.”

The billboards will be up for one month and cost American Atheists, based in New Jersey, less than $15,000 each, according to Silverman.

Mohamed Elfilali, executive director of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, laughed when he learned the Arabic billboard would go up in the same town as his office. He says he’s surprised that someone is spending money on such a sign.

“It is not the first and won’t be the last time people have said things about God or religion,” Elfilali says. “I respect people’s opinion about God; obviously they are entitled to it. I don’t think God is a myth, but that doesn’t exclude people to have a different opinion.”

But Elfilali bemoaned the billboards as another example of a hyper-polarized world.

“Sadly, there is a need to polarize society as opposed to build bridges,” he says. “That is the century that we live in. It is very polarized, very politicized.”

The Brooklyn billboard is likely to raise eyebrows among Jews, in part because Orthodox Jews don't write out the name of God, as the billboard does.

“It is an emotional word, there will be an emotional response," said Rabbi Kenneth Brander, dean of Yeshiva University's Center for the Jewish Future. "People will look at it in a bizarre way. People won’t understand why someone needed to write that out.”

To get around the prohibition, Jews usually use only one Hebrew letter in place of the word. In the Torah scroll, though, the word is found and it is pronounced Adonai, which means “my master.”

Rabbi Serge Lippe of the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue was more dismissive than outraged about the billboards.

“The great thing about America is we are marketplace for ideas,” he says. “People put up awful, inappropriate billboards expressing their ideas and that is embraced.”

But Lippe acknowledged that there are a lot of agnostic and atheist Jews. A recent Gallup survey found 53% of Jews identified as nonreligious. Among American Jews, 17% identified as very religious and 30% identified as moderately religious.

“When you have two Jews in the room, you have three opinions,” joked Lippe.

American Atheists have used the word “myth” to describe religion and God on billboards before. Last November, the organization went up with a billboard immediately before the New Jersey entrance to the Lincoln tunnel that showed the three wise men heading to Bethlehem and stated “You KNOW it’s a Myth. This Season, Celebrate Reason.”

At the time, the American Atheists said the billboard was to encourage Atheists to come out of the closet with their beliefs and to dispel the myth that Christianity owns the solstice season.

The Christmas billboard led to a “counter punch” by the Catholic League, a New York-based Catholic advocacy group. The Catholic League put up a competing billboard that said, “You Know It's Real: This Season Celebrate Jesus."

Silverman says his group’s billboard campaigns will continue long into the future.

“There will be more billboards,” Silverman says. “We are not going to be limiting to Muslims and Jews, we are going to be putting up multiple billboards in multiple communities in order to get atheists to come out of the closet.”

Your desire and flat out NEED to believe in religion only proves that you have NO ability to be unbiased. Btw....the bible doesn't prove anything.

    Most Atheists, the ones that I know, are just plain mad at God for one reason or another. I just let them be angry with Him …because I know you can’t be mad at something that does not exist. I, also, know they’ll come around one day…. when God’s Love engulfs them, like it did me back in April of 1980. It was just AWESOME! I’m not perfect by any means, but I’m no where near what I use to be. Thank you, Jesus.

      That is a misconception. They are angry at theists, many due to years of indoctrination they have had to suffer at the hands of one of more parent. It creates a negative view, often because of abuse involved.

      Be assured they are not angry at god, as they do not even consider it as existing or worthy of thought. They theists are the threat to them.

      Are you stumped by the idea that God should SPEAK the message? Part the clouds (where applicable) and TALK.

      March 1, 2012 at 8:14 pm |
    • Crad

      What about the deaf people who cannot hear? Or the blind people who cannot see the clouds part? Why do you keep mocking me when im simply asking you a question? You pose a very complicated solution and im trying to ask you questions. You think it would be so simple and im telling you it would not be. And the clouds parting and god speaking would STILL be denied by millions of people who could easily believe its mass hysteria. People would say "what is more likely? That god parted the clouds and spoke or we are all suffering mass hysteria?".. And people like you would believe mass hysteria. So were back at the question..

You keep saying the same thing over and over expecting different results and thats the defintiion of insanity. How can i converse with you when you wont answer questions. I asked how do deaf people hear god and what about mass hysteria and you laugh about clouds. You are at a crawl.. Sorry

      I take back the teenager comment. You have the reasoning skills of a first grader. Part of a conversation is listening and all you do is bark like a scared dog trapped in the corner.

      Billboards will not upset the religious one's knowing only the weak one's will move out behind it...at least that will filter out hypocrites from their communities...
      Normally youth do start as non practicing to their religions as atheists or agnostics but there is a time or an exprianced moments come in to their life when they start to become into practicing and stronger in faith...

      It would be a shame really if you are right that religious organizations are not contributing much in unpoliticalized charity helping the poor,hungry and needy no matter what their beliefs or disbeliefs are...

    This story actually does make me wonder what percentage of those who identify as Jewish are in fact atheists. It is a recognized phenomenon that many supposed Jews only participate in the various religious aspects of the faith in order to socialize with others in a similar ethnic group. I'd imagine that it's a far higher percentage than with Muslims, although on the other hand I suppose the threat of death would be a fairly good incentive for those who find Islam to be BS to still pretend to go along with it.

    I am an atheist and I live by a very high moral code that is derived from the understanding that nothing is going to save me when I die. I'll be dead and hopefully have left the earth a better place then when I came into it, just because I don't believe what ever you believe does not give you the right to cast judgement on me. From what I have read about the main religions available right now, you judging me as untrustworthy is you committing a sin and not inline with your own teachings, twenty push ups for you or what ever your clergy deems as appropriate punishment for being a jerk.

    When a person is only 4 or 5 years old having an imaginary friend is cute. However, at age 9 or so on it becomes PSYCHOSIS; the American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition: Severe mental disorder ..... characterized by deterioration of normal intellectual and social functioning and by partial or complete withdrawal from reality.

    Go to your employer and tell him/her you have an imaginary friend, named Bill, whom you've never actually seen, and to whom you talk to daily and consult with for major life deciaions. Yep, try that, and let me know how it works out.

    I believe in God, although I would fall into the spiritual not religious category, but I also believe that Atheists have just as much right to put the billboards up as any other group. How many times in your lives have you driven down a road or highway and seen a billboard advertising a particular religion or denomination and thought nothing of it? I think the wording could be less confrontational, but it is their $15k paying for the advertising space.

      March 1, 2012 at 7:56 pm |

      Because god is love. Whether you believe in god or not is another thing. But the definition of god is love, in all its many many forms. Lets not confuse the term love with a childish definitin either. When a parent grounds their child and denies them pleasure of playing outside it is love. The child hates the parent, and some children kill their parents for loving them. But it is love. Athiests are killing god

      That God is love I do not question. But how do you know that he loves every one? He has revealed much to us about himself and his att.itudes toward us; where in all his revelation do you get the teaching that he loves us all?

      March 1, 2012 at 8:03 pm |

      It is in the very nature of what god is. It is by default. If god doesnt love everyone than it is not god that we are speaking of. Its like saying how do you know that a rolling stone is moving. It is inherent in its very nature.

      Im not familiar with that verse so i cant comment. But if thats what it says and you a confused it would be a good idea to talk to a preacher or a philosopher. Especially since many people think hate and love are one and the same. Sorry, wish i could help you out there.

      March 1, 2012 at 8:26 pm |
    • SciGuy

      Crad, I think you should study the Bible some on this issue before continuing to say God loves everyone. This would be a serious error in your message if it's not true. For example, read through the entire book of Acts, the book where we have the original preaching of the gospel immediately after Jesus ascension to heaven–see how many times the love of God is mentioned in the apostles message to the unbelievers. You'll find the answer is ZERO.

      Why? God existed a looong time before the bible. Its just a book many people wrote. I have a personal relationship with god and i trust him more than a book. Im not religious so i cant help you if you arent looking for answers. Dont want to fight.

      Because i talk with him all day long, every day. He and i are best friends and ive been talking with him since before my first memories. Ive also heard preachers try to use biblical text to justify politics, and why i should vote for certain presidents. I dont go that way. I read the bible but im not a scholar, and god and i can exist solely without the bible. God wasnt born with the binle and i dont depend on it for my relationship with god.

      I find it interesting that God says he exalts the scriptures above his very name while you demean it by saying its "just a book." it's a warning sign to you that you are out of sync with God.

      You make it sound so simple and noble, and yet at the same time those who would supposedly be fighting for "hope" are doing so by trying to suppress anyone who does not agree with them. Just look at how far the outlandishness of current flock of GOP candidates has gone in an attempt to sway their evangelical base. Sure, maybe there's no "hoe (sic) after death," but it is logical to attempt to make the most of what we do have in this one life we do have, instead of sacrificing everything for some supposed posthumous reward. And no, that does not mean we're going to go raping and pillaging because we're somehow freed from any sense of morality. Quite on the contrary, objective morality is far superior for the cooperative advancement of society instead of morality based on archaic stories that dangle an imaginary afterlife as a magical carrot.

      It's the same reality you know, just without believing Santa (God) is real.

      Nope, only believers do.

      "people take those theories no matter how big the HOLE in it and apply it to reality. "

      Think of it as a crime scene. You believe you know absolutely who did it, and how it happened. I am trying to use actual evidence and research to find the truth.

      Patrick, uh, evolution can be observed. You'd be hard pressed to find an honest scientist who denies it.

      Now, I'll throw you a bone.

      Your post would have been better represented if you had said "human evolution". Though "human evolution" is a theory, considering the fossils and evidence of proto-human beings, it is far more likely that we evolved from a lesser developed ancestor than it is that we were made out of dirt by a supernatural deity.
