Atheist displace nativity scenes

 SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - Atheists have displaced most of the
Christmas Nativity scenes erected for years by a coalition of
churches in Santa Monica, Calif.
     Fourteen of the 21 display spaces have traditionally illustrated
the birth of Jesus Christ in an ocean-view park during the
holidays. But atheists claimed 18 of the spaces under a new city
lottery system and are only using three of them. Fifteen sit empty,
leaving only two spaces for churches and one for a Jewish menorah.
     One of the atheist displays features pictures of King Neptune,
Jesus Christ, Santa Claus and Satan and reads, "37 Million
Americans know MYTHS when they see them. What myths do you see?"
