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.
