Battle of the bus ads
The atheist bus ads campaign has led to all sorts of reactions, from the thousands of atheists (and a few Christians) who contributed to the fund that paid for them (far in excess of expectations) to the ultra-sensitive driver who wouldn’t drive, and the sneers of those who accused us of agnosticism with that “probably”.
Now there are new ads from the Christian Party, the Trinitarian Bible Society and the Russian Orthodox Church, asserting that “There definitely is a God”, though they offer no proof, as usual.
Our ads were funded entirely by thousands of individual donors who gave small amounts in an outpouring of popular support for the positive message. The ads now launched in response to our response are funded by organisations or wealthy individuals.
Our ads were positive and peaceful. They didn’t say, for example, that religious people were ‘fools’, unlike one of the response ads being run, which says that “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.”
