In anticipation of this weekend’s Skepticon IV in Springfield, Missouri, the Ozarks Area Coalition of Reason have put up a billboard for the closeted atheists out there — thanks to $5,000 in funding from the United Coalition of Reason : “We hope that folks will realize we are a regular part of the community,” said Steven Olsen, coordinator of the Ozarks Coalition of Reason. “Atheists and agnostics like us live throughout Missouri. We’re your neighbors, your family members, your friends, your coworkers. One of us might even be sitting next to you in church.” … By the way, if you’d still like to attend Skepticon, it’s not too late to register ! It’s free to attend and the speakers aren’t all that bad… Hope to see you there, especially if it’s your first time attending an event like this If you have the means and you’d like to see this kind of event continue in future years, please consider making a donation to Skepticon . They already do so much with a limited budget, but some financial comfort would be a boost for the next group of organizers.
