the return of jesussaid.org

Following my little rant about the religious messages on London buses (click here for a reminder!), I’ve stumbled across a facebook group which is trying to organize an atheist advertising campaign in response to those messages.

This amuses me immensely.

Apparently it all started from Ariane Sherine’s blog about said London buses [read it here], which I’ll admit is better worded than my own rant. And perhaps, slightly more amusing.

Her concluding note in the article is that if 4,680 atheists contribute £5 each, they would be able to run a 2 week campaign on the London buses, the suggested slogan being: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and get on with your life.”

And, of course, all good ideas start with a joke, so there you go! The facebook group exists, pledges are being made, and soon instead of feeling oppressed by religious messages, we’ll have the chance to see the creators of jesussaid tear their hair out in frustration.

Sounds like a plan!

…It does make me wonder, though, what’s going to be published on buses next? Will jesussaid reply with, “There’s probably no God–but do you want to risk it?”

For more information and how to get involved, see Sherine’s follow-up blog.
