funny he didnt like the advert so took the day off, now what will be hilarious is now a precedent has been set all the hndu muslim atheist bus drivers start refusing to drive them wih christian slogans on them

and the ink off your link was good about the looney complaining

Mr Green has challenged the adverts on grounds of "truthfulness" and "substantiation", suggesting that there is not "a shred of supporting evidence" that there is probably no God.

Speaking to distinguished philosopher A C Grayling defended the slogan, saying there was ample justification for the claim.

"The evidential basis for God is the same as for believing there are fairies at the bottom of the garden, and if you don't believe the latter, you shouldn't believe the former," he said.

Professor Grayling admitted secretly welcoming any Advertising Standards inquiry into the adverts, because it would necessarily impact on Christian adverts as well.

Most notably, it could effect the adverts of the Alpha Foundation, an organisation whose advert prompted the atheist response.
It organises Christian seminars nationwide and is described by God Delusion author Richard Dawkins as "a pretty dopey sort of organisation".

Hanne Stinson, chief executive of the British Humanist Association (BHA), said: "I’ve sought advice from some of our key people here, but I’m afraid all I’ve got out of them so far is peals of laughter.$1259459.htm

And so are the abortion clinics, and free speech, and free expression, etc. etc. etc. We should get rid of anything and everything that runs counter to religion so the religious sociopaths universal scheme of things isn't disturbed. While we are at it we should get rid of all the children too so Sunday School teachers aren't tempted to rape them.

I have a better idea. Let's stop indulging people of "faith" and start treating them the same as we would any other mentally diseased person.

Wow...I didn't think the Brits were THAT crazy. There is proof of a God. Who created us?

Oh, please! How about a quick history lesson. Monotheism was conceived, as far as we know, in Egypt prior to the Israelites being freed. It was actually an Egyptian cult that had the orignal "One God". prior to that, there were Gods for everything and every tribe had different ones. Even the Israelites were polytheistic early on.

Moses, being brought up in Egyptian high society, like the idea of monotheism and intorduced it to the Israelites. They liked it too, especially the bit about them being the "Chosen People". Moses had taken control of these people and led them out, wandering around for a while and became their leader.

Tyhen they cemented their view of "One God", Moses wrote some commandements as laws for his new nation and the "God" you all "know and love" was created. Prior to that, there is not one mention in archaelogy of Jehovah showing up to any other race or nation for the several thousand years of human history prior to the Exodus.

If God created us, why did he wait until only about 1300BC to show up, give some commandments and basically say he did everything? Remember that there is at least another 5000 years of recorded human history prior to this event and not one mention of him showing up to anyone.

As is the case now, religion is a form of control. Moses saw his chance and took it, created a "God" and *poof*, there we have it. Note, all the books of the Torah were written by Moses himself. Funny, huh?
