Creationists Smite Atheists as Billboard Holy War Moves to Times Square Are nonbelievers just 'wrong'?

Creationists have thrown the latest stone in the heated battle to piss off the most number of people with a billboard. "To all our atheist friends: Thank God you're wrong," declares a billboard in New York's Times Square. (There's also one in San Francisco.) Paid for by Answers in Genesis, the ministry behind Cincinnati's Creation Museum (you know, the one where you get to frolic with dinosaurs), the billboard directs people to a site that explains the Young Earth Creationist theory—one which many god-fearing believers don't believe. Dave Silverman, president of the American Atheists tells CNN: "They're throwing down the gauntlet, and we're picking it up," adding that his group will "slap them in the face" with it. I think this means holy war.
