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:

In the singular moment of noticeable conflict, Derek Rogers, a computer science major at Dalhouise University in Nova Scotia, Canada, was detained by guards for wearing a shirt with a slogan recently plastered on buses by activist groups that read “there’s probably no God, so get over it.” He was escorted to the bathroom and ordered to flip the shirt inside-out.

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?

You can see Derek’s version of the story here:
