Tip Hillman has launched a new atheist Kickstarter project called Bright Simon’s Guide to Being Smarter Than God in an effort to

  • 1. inspire non-believers and
  • 2. encourage fence-sitters to embrace science and rational thinking.

It’s for a younger audience, and begins:

Kick scientific truth forward! Let’s produce Bright Simon’s first book, posters and t-shirts to promote freethinking, facts, and fun.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at Bright Simon’s Guide to Being Smarter Than God. It’s a multi-faceted project that includes a printed book, posters, stickers, and T-shirts, all designed to promote science and rational thinking. It revolves around an atheist character, Simon, who contrasts the dubious claims of beliefs with the verifiable proof of science. His motto is “Aren’t You Curious?” and his goal is to promote knowledge and secular-based virtues in a friendly way through popular culture.

To fund the project $8000 needs to be pledged by August 30th.

One thought on “Bright Simon’s Guide to Being Smarter Than God”

  1. While I’m usually with strident atheist set, when it comes to kids, those bets are off. “Aren’t you curious” is a vastly better tag line than “smarter than god”. I know it’s too late now, but if you have an explicit goal of reaching fence sitters, you couldn’t do much worse than the smarter line. One caveat, it might be just the right kind of edgy for teens, but that’s almost impossible to know beforehand and the negatives would still outweigh the benefits.
