Oh good, this will stir up some much-needed/needless* controversy:
An atheist campaign plans to raise $10,000 to run controversial slogan advertisements on New Zealand buses.I'm not a critic of the campaign. In fact, if there was a pay TV channel devoted to filming the feathers of religious folk being ruffled, I would buy a subscription.
The adverts, which read "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life", created a storm when they ran on the London Underground and British buses earlier this year.
The campaign was launched here yesterday. New Zealand Atheist Bus Campaign spokesman Simon Fisher said it would provoke discussion on religion and take away the stigma of atheism.
It's about time the atheists and doubters stood up for what they don't believe in.
My favourite quote on religion is by Douglas Adams:
Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?* You decide.
