National Atheists Group Meeting In Des Moines
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The National Atheist Convention kicked off in Des Moines on Thursday night.
Organizers say they expect their largest crowd ever, more than 700 people, to attend an event that runs through Sunday in downtown Des Moines.
KCCI reports the convention follows a high-profile advertising campaign featuring billboards that appeared around Des Moines.
The billboards read, "You know there is no God, we know you're right."
The American Atheists group says it hopes the billboards would show local atheists that they aren't alone in their beliefs.
