Billboard Wars

American Atheists recently put up a billboard on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln tunnel saying, "You KNOW it's a Myth, this Season, Celebrate REASON!" The Catholic League then retaliated with it's own billboard on the Manhattan side of the tunnel with the message, "You Know it's Real. This Season, Celebrate Jesus." CNN's Jeanne Moos recently produced a humorous look at this debate which you can view here.

Watching the CNN piece sorta takes me back to elementary school. "I know you are, but what am I?", "I don't make monkeys, I just train them," etc. Both sides in this debate seem to have a lot of dogma and enthusiasm; what appears to be missing is a reasonable defense of each view. Years ago Monty Python's Michael Palin rightly pointed out that "An argument is not the same as contradiction," and Christians would do well to think about the apologetic implications of this sound advice.

    Notice, not notive and actually, it shows the first time at :26 in. Funny, no one seemed to notice or even know to what it was referring.
