The Atheist Bus

This morning a Comment is Free post (of all things) launched a campaign to counter religious advertising on London buses. Quite brilliantly, it’s already raised enough to buy space for an advert on 30 buses, which will say:

There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.

Love it. It’s in response to adverts for the Alpha Course, which linked to a website telling of the tremendous suffering that will come to unbelievers. That kind of thing really pisses me off. The Alpha Course isn’t on the fringes of UK Christianity – it’s everywhere. If it were all flowers and bunnies, it might be polite to let it go by. But it’s not, and I’d say it’s rude not to counter it. 

I’m looking forward to the whinings over this one. Not from the religious lobby – though that could be entertaining – but there’ll be claims of militancy and why are you being so aggressive and this isn’t the best way to do things and blah superior blah. Fun times.

    Yeah! You could get hit by a bus tomorrow

  2. :-)

    I’ve drawn a blank on atheist bus jokes. There must be something…

  3. What I find particularly amusing about this ‘athiest’ campaign is the wording: “There’s PROBABLY no God”. Sounds more agnostic to me!

    God bless…. perhaps? :)
