Is Richard Dawkins Bus Campaign Getting Out Of Hand?

He's such a dear isn't he, always polite, never aloof and always the diplomat, a thoroughly likable bloke all in all, I would think even the Jezoids would have trouble taking exception.

Some of you will be aware of the bus ads that Richard Dawkins endorses and for those that are not the bottom line is, life is for living, so fuck the miserable theocrats and their miserable fucking ways, get partying, though I do have to admit he does tend to put it rather more eloquently than I.

Here then is a report from the Guardian and an accompanying two minute film featuring the creator of the campaign Ariane Sherine and not least the good professor being his usual pleasant self although he does manage a little barbed one liner at the end.

Have a take on Polly Toynbee the Guardian columnist, I couldn't help but wonder how long she would have been in employment were she reporting for some Yankee news organisation.

Atheist bus campaign spreads the word of no God nationwide
Anyone who has spent a chilly half-hour waiting for a double-decker may already have doubted the existence of a deity. But for those who need further proof, a nationwide advertising campaign aimed at persuading more people to "come out" as atheists was launched today with the backing of some of Britain's most famous non-believers.

The principal slogan – "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life" – can already be seen on four London bus routes, and now 200 bendy buses in London and 600 across the country are to carry the advert after a fundraising drive raised more than £140,000, exceeding the original target of £5,500. more

Oh least I forget, the header, brought about when I happened on this yoke the other day.
