NYC Atheists Bus Campaign


You asked for it. You anticipated it. You waited for it! This month, some two dozen buses will roll through Manhattan, debuting our 12-foot long, three foot high message, "You don’t have to believe in god to be a moral or ethical person". Look for the signs the first day our buses maneuver through the city in late June. Take a photo of yourself standing beside our bus poster at a bus stop and we'll run it in our newsletter.


Please donate towards our next NYC Atheist Bus Campaign
Make our voices heard. NYC Atheists Inc. is a non-profit (501c), non-partisan, educational association, so your donations are tax-deductible.

Location: The Press Box Restaurant, 932 Second Avenue (bet. 49th & 50th Sts.) -2nd Floor.
Speaker: DANIELLE MUSCATO: AMERICAN ATHEISTS PUBLIC RELATIONS DIRECTOR Danielle Muscato is a writer, activist and public speaker. A former Christian praise & worship musician, she has been active in the Atheism movement since 2009 and with American Atheists since 2013.
Subject: “AMERICAN ATHEISTS: THE ‘MARINES’ OF THE ATHEIST MOVEMENT” How AA is taking the lead in Atheist activism. / American Atheists boasts that they are the “Marines" of the Atheist Movement. Dave Silverman, American Atheists president, claims that the American Atheists is the most effective national Atheist organization. Silverman says that American Atheists attracts the greatest number of individuals seeking information about Atheism. Silverman's evidence is the comparison of the number of computer “hits” between the other National Secular Organizations and AA. He also shows that each time AA does an aggressive action (like a new controversial billboard) the AA “hits” surge. He also states the other organizations' “hits” have remained static / flat whereas AA’s have soared. The key AMERICAN ATHEISTS PROGRAMS are: BILLBOARDS: (top news coverage) billboard campaigns to encourage closetedAtheists to "come out" and celebrate their atheism. These billboards not only encourage atheists to stand up and be heard, but also raise the profile of Atheists and Atheism in the media and public discourse. MEDIA: (Silverman probably best debater / Regular Fox News) radio / tv / print CONVENTIONS: The 2015 American Atheists National Convention is being held April 2-5, 2015 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, with the headliner Ms. Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Host: DAVID ORENSTEIN, Ph.D
Subject: PETER SINGER’S BOOK, “THE EXPANDING CIRCLE: ETHICS, EVOLUTION AND MORAL PROGRESS.” What is ethics? Where do moral standards come from? Are they based on emotions, reason or some innate sense of right and wrong? For many scientists, the key lies entirely in biology--especially in Darwinian theories of evolution and self-preservation. But if evolution is a struggle for survival, why are we still capable of altruism?
