Atheist adverts reported to industry watchdog

As ever, Stephen Green of “Christian Voice” teeters perilously on the brink of self-parody, arguing that the Atheist Bus Campaign banners breach advertising regulations on grounds of… evidence.

Campaign: Atheist Bus

In response to offensively fire-and-brimstoney religious groups’ ads on the sides of London buses, a comedian started a campaign to run ads saying “There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” After 24 hours, they’ve exceeded their desired £5,500 goal… by almost £40,000!

Liquor, Coffee & Scripture

Liquor, Coffee & Scripture

An odd selection of signs on this liquor store. (And another Eye-Fi test… this photo was uploaded via the Wi-Fi hotspot in the McDonald's behind me as I took the photo, and was in Flickr before I got back to my desk)

A Screenshot of God's Inbox (from Time Magazine) [PDF]

God uses a Mac, apparently. A funny list, made funnier by details like “Jesus Baby Pictures” on the desktop.

Teaching "Intelligent Design" in US public schools is unconstitutional [PDF]

The 139-page ruling. My favourite bit starts on page 31, and explains how “Of Pandas And People” (the “textbook” that kids in Dover were supposed to read as part of their biology class) had the word “creationism” search-n-replaced to “intelligent design” after the 1987 ruling saying teaching “creationism” was unconstitutional. These fundamentalist fuckwits are shameless.

NPR : There is No God (Penn Jilette)

Excellent commentary by Penn Jillette on atheism. This is my “belief system” too.

“Believing there is no God means the suffering I’ve seen in my family, and indeed all the suffering in the world, isn’t caused by an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent force that isn’t bothered to help or is just testing us, but rather something we all may be able to help others with in the future. No God means the possibility of less suffering in the future.”
