Atheist Anti-God Ad Campaign in England
|October 23, 2008||Posted by GilDodgen under Atheism|
Our good friend Richard Dawkins is on the march once again:
The sides of some of London’s red buses will soon carry ads asserting there is “probably no God,” as nonbelievers fight what they say is the preferential treatment given to religion in British society.
Organizers of a campaign to raise funds for the ads said Wednesday they received more than $113,000 in donations, almost seven times their target, in the hours since they launched the project on a charity Web site. Supporters include Oxford University biologist Richard Dawkins, who donated $9,000.
The money will be used to place posters on 30 buses carrying the slogan “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” [Says Dawkins]: “This campaign to put alternative slogans on London buses will make people think — and thinking is anathema to religion.”
The religious think tank Theos said it had donated $82 to the campaign, on the grounds that the ads were so bad they would probably attract people to religion. “Stunts like this demonstrate how militant atheists are often great adverts for Christianity.”
