The Atheists Strike Back
Near a freeway exit at 5th and Harrison in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood, a billboard has gone up to counter messages that have proliferated recently around the world proclaiming May 21st as Biblical "Judgment Day."
One of the oddest details is that both the Christian crackpot, Dr. Harold Camping and the Atheist sponsors of the billboard above are both based in Oakland, a place that most San Franciscans never even think about. It feels like a holy war being fought on proxy ground, with TJ MAXX going to the victor.
