.- Following a secular humanist ad campaign in Washington D.C. which questioned religious belief, an initiative called I Believe Too has been launched to counteract the secular campaign with a positive, upbeat ad that identifies God as mankinds true and loving creator.
In November the American Humanist Association (AHA) bought advertisements on Washington D.C. buses reading Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake. The campaign aspired to bring together the non-religious during the holiday season.
The I Believe Too campaign, sponsored by the Center for Family Development, called the AHA effort a campaign against God. Aiming to fight back with the same campaign they are running, the I Believe Too ads are planned for 10 buses with side posters, 10 buses with tail posters, 200 interior bus posters.
Costs of the full campaign are estimated to be $14,000. As of Tuesday morning, 64 donors had supplied the campaign with $3,400.
The ad itself uses an image from Michelangelos The Creation of Adam, focusing upon the outstretched hands and fingers of God and Adam.
Why Believe? Because I created you and I love you, for goodness' sake, the ad reads, attributing its words to God.
JoEllen Murphy, the initiatives leader, explained her motivations on the I Believe Too web site.
After a friend forwarded me an article about the AHA ad campaign, I thought, Enough! I am so tired of God and religion being attacked that I decided to start a counter ad campaign, she said.

Yeah! That’s the spirit!!
The biggest problem with atheism is that an atheist pretty much has to believe in evolution, and evolution has been overwhelmingly disproved of a period of many decades. Evolution is basically incompatible with modern mathematics and probability theory.
‘Humanism’, just a rationalism for the degradation into narcissistic bestiality.
Well, then, get one flu shot and never bother with another one. More for the rational people.
and we all know the hypocicy of that, as a true believer in Darwinism, would despise homosexuality, and the other deviant behaviors, to a much greater degree, than the “hate” that these so called “humanists” and atheists, accuse “Christians” and other people of faith, of having.
They are all hypocrites with conflicting, if convenient, lies/arguments, trying to justify their headlong rush back into the muck of the primordial gene swamp...Less and less *human*, more and more animalistic, with every passing day.
“Why believe in God? Just be good for goodness sakes.”
Wrong, denying God is not goodness. It is showing the greatest disrespect to the Creator who gave us life and everything. How can you be good if you are denying the God who created goodness and morality. This is human pride and self-righteousness.
