I think it's time that the rational viewpoint was advertised for a change, so please spare a few quid for this if you agree.

Thanks!

Probably?  Good to see how sure they are. Shouldn't this be the Agnostics Bus?  ;)

Nice idea though.


Dont you start again  ;)

Because the BHA will be able to pay for even more posters, on even more buses. The Ã,£5,500 was
a minimum requirement for this.

I personally don't like the use of the word "probably", but it at least reflects the fact that we can't be absolutely certain, and avoids the accusation that atheists understand the reality of God's non-existence as an article of knowledge. Perhaps it was hoped that this note of circumspection would appeal to a wider section of the populace.

However, personally I would prefer a simple "There's no God", or "God's not real" - although we can't be absolutely certain that fairies, leprechauns, gods and so on aren't real we can at least profess practical certainty; ie the possibility that there's a god is so slight that it's negligible, and an assertion such as "There's no God" is pragmatically correct for most intents and purposes.

Totally agree with the sentiment although the slogan really is abysmal. Do belivers worry more than atheists? Are atheists happier due to their non-belief.

I`m an atheist and I`m a right miserable bastard!

I offer this up as evidence that I, as an Atheist, worry about the state of our planet when people who think/believe as this video shows are elected*

I think one of the youtube comments describes her best...."An ignorant c**t". I almost feel sorry for people like that. McCain is certaintly going after this type of "Voter", but he will not win. Not in this life ;).
