In pockets of the United States are swarms of atheists. Centered around institutions of higher learning, these intellectual folk are hot for debate and hot for religion, just not in any way that would be supported by the local Christian church. Yet, housed within these groups is something intriguing, that they even do not realize is there. The seed of truth that has lain dormant for so long is germinating in this oddly fertile soil.
The “Good without God” campaign seeks to canvas the country with billboards and fliers announcing that it is possible to be a moral person without belief in a Higher Power of any sort. Even in nearby Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University, a humanist group started a controversial bus ad campaign declaring that people all over the world do not believe in God and still are able to resist committing murder, adultery, and theft. Oddly enough, with full agreement, the church may find the answer to its current identity crisis.
