Atheist Billboards in Texas

An atheist group in North Texas is putting up billboards which read, "Don't believe in God? You are not alone." According to their spokesman, unlike some other atheist efforts, this one isn't meant to attract people to atheism. Instead, the purpose is to reach out to atheists and let them know there are groups they can connect with.

Like many of these atheist advertising campaigns, this one seems pretty pointless to me. I'm pretty sure most atheists are well-aware that they aren't alone. Anyone with access to the internet can find all sorts of information about atheism, atheist groups, blogs, and so forth. It's their money and they can do whatever they want with it, but I think an atheist group should be able to find better causes worthy of financial support than putting up some billboards.
