Your roving reporter, Richard Wade here.
Several news services are reporting that the surprisingly successful bus advertisement campaign in the UK featuring banners saying “There probably is no god, now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” has been picked up in two other European countries.
The British Humanist Association aimed to raise enough money to run the atheist campaign adverts on a CBS Outdoor central London bus route; instead, public donations to the value of £130,000 mean the advert will run on CBS Outdoor’s national bus route packs and on London Underground sites. Spain”’s Union of Atheists and Freethinkers is launching buses across Barcelona today with the UK slogan translated into Spanish, Italy”’s Union of Atheists, Agnostics and Rationalists is also planning a bus campaign, while the American Humanist Association has brought out atheist bus adverts in Washington DC. Atheist slogans have begun popping up again on public transport around the UK in the second phase of the record-breaking Atheist Bus Campaign.
Britain, the US, Spain, Italy, where next?
