A group put a billboard similar to the Christian "I am second" billboards. It says "Don't believe in God? Youre not alone."...
So that's where this question comes from.

I am not familiar witht the the "I am second" billboards. In my area I have seen a lot Christian billboards that say things like "Jesus Saves" & "Jesus is THE Lord & Saviour" & other things along those lines... so when I saw the "Don't believe in God? You are not alone" billboard I found it refreshing; THAT billboard only reaches out to those who share the belief stated on the billboard, it doesn't try to sway or worse force ones belief on others. Jesus is most definitely not my Lord or Saviour & I don't appreciate being told so by an abrasive billboard. I don't see that billboard as prostelyzing (sp?) at all.

Atheist often feel isolated. Some have been disowned by family member, some just think that no one thinks the same way they do. The billboards are away for atheists to come together.

I agree with bubbaluva. I am in the south and see many many many billboards etc. that have " Jesus Saves" or "Jesus loves you" and other similar things. I am not offended by them but they do annoy me ( just being honest) I am not atheist but my beliefs differ from those messages by far. There is no billboard like the " Don't believe in God? You are not alone" one here but I can imagine it being offensive or anything because it is just asking a question and letting others know they aren't alone. It doesn't say " You shouldn't believe in God" or " God is imaginary" or anything like that. It is a question not a statement.
