Secular Student Alliance Trip Featured on ABC News

I’m still in Ohio for a couple days wrapping up work with the Secular Student Alliance… more updates to come.

Until then, there was a nice little piece about atheists “converging on the Creation Museum” at ABC News. (There may be more big stories to come…)

One mistake in the article that has not yet been fixed is in this excerpt:

The shirt did not read that at all. It said, “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

That’s a big difference, don’t you think?
