CONTEST!! Picket Sign Writer’s Block… I Need Your Help!

As many of you are aware, I’m scheduled to attend the Ark Encounter protest on Thursday, July 7th, as well as speak at the after party & rally.  I’m working on having a picket sign printed with the Young Skeptics logo, but I’m having a total block when it comes to something catchy to include.  Feel free to make some suggestions in the comments here and I’ll pick one or two to add to the sign!

The winner(s) will receive a signed copy of my book, Understanding an Atheist: A Practical Guide to Relating to Nonbelievers. (US shipping only, sorry.)

Once it’s printed, I’ll post a picture of it and you may even see your work on the news!

Here’s what I have so far, but I’m not sold on any of them.  What suggestions do you have?

  • Indoctrination = Abuse
  • Stop supporting ignorance
  • Creationism is anti-intellectualism
  • Answers in Genesis is preying on your children

Yeah, they suck.

The sign will have the Young Skeptics logo as well as “Teach Critical Thinking Instead”.  So the other text will have to mesh with that message.  And I’d prefer it be something not entirely specific to the Ark Encounter or AiG so I can use it again at future events.

Contest ends today (Friday 7/1)  Ok, go!

    I suggest:

    “Creationism is Religion in Disguise,
    McLean v. Arkansas Board of Education”

    “The Bible is Pornography, Not Suitable for Children”

    “Your Lies Don’t Fool Us (or Me)”

    “Keep Your Ignorance Away From Children”

    “Logic & Reason, Not Superstition”

    “Once Upon A Time…”

    “We Need Science In Schools, Expel Religion”

    “Plants Couldn’t Exist First Without Light”

    “Our Science Threatens Your Religion”

    “State & Church Separation- 1st Amendment”

    “NO EVIDENCE – You Can’t PROVE Creation!”

    “Magic Is NOT Real!”

    “Your God Murdered the Unborn in the Flood!”

    “You are NOT My Authority”

    I could go on.

    Smaller letters for “is”. I know I’m too late to win.
