I like the idea, and the cause, and the sentiment, and there's apparently money coming in from across the globe.  Might chip in a coupla quid.  ::)  ;)

Crap slogan. Noble ideal.

I was going through some old books the other day and came accross Carl Sagan's "Cosmos". Got emotional looking at the photo of Carl on the back. SUCH a monumental loss. That and the David Attenborough "Life" series should be in all science curriculums in schools IMO.

Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

Should hit six figures at the weekend, and it's been announced that the campaign will be going nationwide - now that's (real) Good News :)

Celebrating a non-superstitious point of view isn't the point - promoting it in a positive way is.

Yes, so feel free to contribute in whatever way you feel you can dom, although rational discourse is also welcome.

Six hours later, and the total stands at .. Ã,£100,967.93 :)

Result. I think the BHA is going to raise at least Ã,£200,000 before the end of the year - which should promote quite a prominent campaign, and hopefully encourage a lot of people to think.

There'll be plenty of room because there hasn't been any posts of that description.  ;)

It's catching on in America now.

You better watch out. There is a new combatant in the Christmas wars.

Ads proclaiming, "Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake," will appear on Washington, D.C., buses starting next week and running through December. The American Humanist Association unveiled the provocative $40,000 holiday ad campaign Tuesday.

In lifting lyrics from "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," the Washington-based group is wading into what has become a perennial debate over commercialism, religion in the public square and the meaning of Christmas.

"We are trying to reach our audience, and sometimes in order to reach an audience, everybody has to hear you," said Fred Edwords, spokesman for the humanist group. "Our reason for doing it during the holidays is there are an awful lot of agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists who feel a little alone during the holidays because of its association with traditional religion."

Apparently dyslexic athiests are starting a campaign claiming the non existence of dogs.
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black. The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage.
