A blogger friend of mine, Jon Worth, has been part in kicking off this fantastic campaign in the UK, the Atheist Bus. What started as a wild idea in a Guardian column written by Ariane Sherine (who also has a blog), became realistic after a photoshop mockup and lots of entusiastic pledges in the pledgebank, support from the British Humanist Association, involvement from famous atheist author, Richard “The God Delusion” Dawkins, a Facebook group, a campaign site, and a donation site. As you can see, the campaign has more than reached it donation goal:
The original idea was to fund one bus with one atheist banner (4,680 atheists could contribute £5) has now expanded – the new goal is to fund 30 buses across the capital for four weeks with the slogan: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”
There is going to be a lot of atheist busriding in the UK from now.
A friend of mine suggested another hardhitting atheist slogan: There is NO God. You are responsible!
The use of “probably” can probably save the campaign from some litigations.
