Atheist bus campaign reaches £28,000

Today the Atheist Bus Campaign was launched. The goal was to raise £5,500 to pay for advertising on London buses that would say “There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” Here’s a mockup of a bus sporting the advert:

Well, they met their target at 10:06 am. At the time of writing (17:49), donations total £28,728.0. (You can see the current total here). Professor Richard Dawkins has kindly agreed to match donations up to a maxium of £5,500, so that puts the total over £34,000.

The campaign wouldn’t be complete without an arsey comment from Stephen Green, so here it is:

“How funny that Richard Dawkins is so scared of the threat which evangelical Christianity poses to atheism and his beloved Darwinism that he has to fund a campaign to attack God. He really is the nearest thing atheists have to an evangelist while his belief in non-belief is held with a fervour which many religious people would do well to emulate, so long as they don’t make themselves look as inept as he so often does, poor man … The atheist advertisers will have to be quick or the bendy-buses will be off the road in Boris’s purge, taking the anti-God message with them. Bendy-buses, like atheism, are a danger to the public at large.”

    Advertising their ignorance. What next?

    They should study Bhagavad-gita As It Is before wasting their money.

    There are many ignorant atheists. I can’t believe people would think otherwise. Atheists are the most proselytizing people on this earth today. They are most definitely making atheism a religion.

    All this does is wake people with faith up and get them off their butts to spread the Word more.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I was just wondering if you were aware of the Ancient Hebrew writing ( Dimensions 300 kilometres long X 120 kilometres wide) written on the sea bed just off the west coast of Ireland?

    Kind Regards
