Religions are 'Scams,' Atheist Group Declares in Alabama Advertisement

A new advertisement in Alabama by a national atheist group is reportedly declaring religions to be "scams."

The Huntsville ad -- produced by the American Atheists -- displays the message "You know they're all scams" alongside pictures of religious symbols, such as Islam's crescent moon and star, the cross and the Jewish star, according to the Christian Post.

The billboard also claims that the national group has been "telling the truth since 1963."

The American Atheists define "scam" as a fraudulent business scheme or ploy to intentionally mislead a person, usually with the goal of financial gains, the Post reports.

According to the group, "all religions make lots of promises about an afterlife that doesn't exist."
