Guess Who Else Adopted a Highway? December 5, 2010

Guess Who Else Adopted a Highway?

The Omaha Atheists have a highway of their own!

Hmm… I wonder what the longest stretch of atheist-cleaned road is in America.

  • This is cool!

    Christians vs Atheists in an epic battle to own the roads!

  • After the MN Atheists stretch of Hwy 35, there’s a stretch cleaned by a Unitarian Church. Not quite there, but they’re pretty close.

  • We (Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers) have a mile of I-35 as well.

    It’s not exactly a stretch, but it is the same highway. Does that count?

    Hmm… I wonder what the longest stretch of atheist-cleaned road is in America.

    Maybe it’s the many, many miles of roads crisscrossing the 591+ acres of the campuses of Harvard University?

  • Cool! We’re doing this too in our city. We’re just waiting for the signs to be up within the next month or so. Will you post about ours when they get up?

    Atheist Community of Austin has a section of Burnet Road just south of highway 183 and I went there a couple times to help clean and it was actually pretty clean already so kudos to that group.

    I enjoyed reading that sign compared to reading the others.

    We are atheist. The whole secular or humanist shit just pisses me off. I’m proud to be an atheist.

    I live in Omaha and I never knew there was an organized atheist group. Granted I never looked, but it goes to show how the billboards campaign can be effective in letting folks know. Good for them!

    Yay for Nebraskan Atheists!

    does anyone know which omaha highway this is on, by the way?

  • spink

    go Omaha!

  • Randy: Omaha Atheist Meetup group! Join us! Everyone is really awesome! We get together once a month for a meetup and in between there is usually other things going on like discussion groups, they have a bowling team going right now, we also go to the science cafe lectures and things like that. It really makes living in Omaha much more enjoyable!

    I have been out there to clean up that highway but I do not know where it is 🙁
    I didn’t drive therefore I did not pay attention to where I was being taken. But I think it was out by Venice so maybe hwy92?

    The stretch of highway the OA group cares for is to the West of Omaha, near Yutan.
    Thanks for the feature, Hemant! 🙂

    @Randy: We have a great, diverse group of 200+ (and growing) here in Omaha. Find us via! We have monthly meetings as well as other social, discussion, education and volunteer activities each month.

    LeAnne, this is on Highway 92 (West Center Road) west of 264th. We have a 2 mile stretch that we are responsible for clean up of.

    Hey, I don’t recall anyone asking permission to use my photo! 😛 Just kidding of course. Thanks Brian for sending this on, love the exposure! We are good without god!
