Atheist buses in London to have 'no God' ads

Buses with the slogan "There's probably no God" could soon be driving around the streets of London.

The adverts, which also tell readers to "stop worrying and enjoy your life" are the idea of the British Humanist Association (BHA)

Atheist Bus Campaign have already raised well over the £5,500 from supporters they needed to get the anit-God ads on 30 London bendy-buses for a month.

Supported by prominent atheist Professor Richard Dawkins the BHA say the slogan will offer breath of fresh air amongst the posters advertising salvation through Jesus or threatening us with eternal damnation.

Critics say the busses are a sure way to eternal damnation ... well they are if you get the No 59 to Brixton.
The group had met their fundraising target within one hour of launching their website and by midday had raised over £55,500.

A spokesperson for the campaign said: "We can brighten people's days on the way to work, help raise awareness of atheism in the UK, and hopefully encourage more people to come out as atheists. 

"We can also counter the religious adverts which are currently running on London buses, and help people think for themselves. 

Speaking of the adverts Richard Dawkins added: "This campaign to put alternative slogans on London buses will make people think - and thinking is anathema to religion."
