“No God” slogan to run on UK buses

Posted by Andy Welfle on October 23, 2008

London buses will soon be running an ad on the side that says “There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

This is probably the best advice anyone can get, ever. See the article, here.

The British Humanist Association (BHA) is sponsoring the campaign, which was only intending to raised £5,500, with another £5,500 to be donated by Richard Dawkins. But through their own efforts, they’ve raised over £36,000 by themselves!

Sez Professor Dawkins:

“Religion is accustomed to getting a free ride — Automatic tax breaks, unearned respect and the right not to be offended, the right to brainwash children. Even on the buses, nobody thinks twice when they see a religious slogan plastered across the side. This campaign to put alternative slogans on London buses will make people think — and thinking is anathema to religion.”

Do you ever think we could get away with this here across the pond?  I bet there isn’t a bus company out there that would accept this sort of contract.

  1. Do you ever think we could get away with this here across the pond? I bet there isn’t a bus company out there that would accept this sort of contract.

    Most likely something like this would never happen in the states. If someone had enough testicular fortitude to do it. His/Her company would plummet. There would be outrages and protests, boycotts and sit-ins, lynchings and …. Maybe not lynchings but you get the picture. I’m glad that Europe is coming out of the religious closet, and with their influx of the Muslim populous, they are being even more straight forward with their denouncing of faith.
