Recently, a fundamentalist Christian organization called “We Can Know” leased billboards in several states in the US alerting citizens to the ‘fact’ that Christ was returning on May 21st of next year, complete with ensuing ‘Judgement Day’.
Those of us among the atheism community, as well as those who may not be atheists but are aware of this continually repeating trend, are aware of how this dance will end: The Funky Backpedal. Wether they invoke Poe’s Law, play it off as publicity stunt, or say it was some ineffable arrival, the moves of the dance are the same.
In anticipation of this moment, we are counting down the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until that date on our new website, “We Can’t Know“– a domain chosen for obvious reasons.
Spread it far, spread it wide!
