I would like to see more ads like this on school buses and shopping carts/trolleys etc, maybe humanity will be able to give one big sigh of relief when the great religious god delusion is over. Perhaps any merits in spirituality could be investigated then with clear open minds.
I wonder how much more money it would have taken for him to drive to the bus, assuming of course, he would be swayed by money - being such a spiritual soul. Has anyone ever heard of an atheist refusing to work or anytihg like that because there is an advertisement for the 'Alpha Course' or a Buddhist Meditation Retreat near them? I think not - we are too busy just getting on with our lives.

I'm sorry if I missed someone saying this, but you guys do know that he is still driving buses right?
The company he worked for had other buses without the advertising he found offensive. They agreed to let him drive one of those buses if they are available. If one isn't available, he agreed to drive the bus with the "There Probably Isn't A God" advertisement.
Ummm.....I don't see the issue.

Making this a religious issue when it is clearly a personal belief issue doesn't make sense either. Give it to you guys to blow this all out of proportion.

The white Christian gets the least help from anyone, and if they complain about it, they're an intolerant racist. Screw those atheist creeps for trying to push their agenda on others. I'm sure those hypocritical losers would be the first people to point the finger if someone tried to get them to become religious. I've never met an atheist that wasn't a walking hypocrite.

Atheists are very, very close to communists. Same mentality, same ruthless ideas...one step from mass murder.

This dear is a very broad statement which has absolutely no basis in life. Fact is There are serial killers and mass murderes who know it is bad to committ these crimes yet still do. It has nothing to do with knowing right from wrong. The fact is the world is comprised of 2 things and 2 things only.GOOD and EVIL. It has nothing to do with knowledge of wether they'r good or bad. 99% of the world knows the difference. It's just that some people are totally emotionless and void of feelings (evil).
Now all of you GO READ SOMETHING IMPORTANT!!! There are a million things wrong with the world, the first being people like us bickering over nothing while countless people in the world are oppressed and killed over real problems.
I've been told that I have the IQ of an artichoke on this this thread. I've been told that I am to burn in hell and be disemboweled for all eternity on this thread.

Yes, how dare that bus driver ioce his opinion, stand up for what he believes in, or keeps his faith.
Hey I ave a great idea, let's round up all th Christians and kill them, then we can have peace, by killing those who don't believe as you do.
Why don't you think about what you'r saying, what if it were a "Have sex with children" advertisement, or something else that went strongly agianst your beliefs would you protest? You see the thing is, these athiest hate Christians, yes they "claim: that they hate all religions, but that's not true, they have been singling out christianity for forever, they hate us, not because of anything other than for the fact that they just hate theidea that what they do here on earth could effect them for eternity, they don't like that idea of resposibility.
The bus driver had every right to protest, the sign was offensive to him, the company should think twice about putting signs on the side of there bus that may be highly offensive to the majority of people.
Atheists are full of hate, i dont see how they can sleep at night and thispitiful forum here on ATS is there little payground, the mods don't care about these constant attacks on Christian, but boy they sure do show up and say something when it comes to any other religions.
LISTEN YOU MODS, DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE ONE SIDED HATE OR LEAVE!

It's about time a christian (or at least theist) made a stand for his faith. For too long, the anti-god/occult brigade pushed their (un-)beliefs and expected God's people to remain silent. Now his head is hunted for refusing to comply with a system that insinuates (1) that God does not exist and (2) that the only way to enjoy life, is to reject the God he believes in.
Go on, Ron Heather. May the Lord bless you for not being ashamed of Him when the World expected you to be.

You said in your post, why doesnt the guy just say "god bless you" to people if he wants to protest. Maybe he doesn't want to offend, just because he was offended?
