The Atheist Bus Campaign

What a fantastic idea!

“With your support, we hope to raise £5,500 to run 30 buses across the capital for four weeks with the slogan: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

Please give generously.

Professor Richard Dawkins, bestselling author of The God Delusion, is officially supporting the Atheist Bus Campaign, and has generously agreed to match all donations up to a maximum of £5,500, giving us a total of £11,000 if we reach the full amount – enough for a much bigger campaign. The British Humanist Association have kindly agreed to administer all donations.

With your help, we can brighten people’s days on the way to work, help raise awareness of atheism in the UK, and hopefully encourage more people to come out as atheists. We can also counter the religious adverts which are currently running on London buses, and help people think for themselves.

As Richard Dawkins says: “This campaign to put alternative slogans on London buses will make people think – and thinking is anathema to religion.”


  1. I swear you time-machined me and stole the idea for this post from the email I just sent you then went back in time by three days and posted this! Time Lord thievery!

  2. I refer you to my comment of three days ago, Mr Day.
    Oh, sorry, you won’t have seen it yet – in your timeline it doesn’t appear until January 2009.
    Silly me!
    It’s very good, anyway; I recommend sticking around to see it.

  3. I SWEAR I saw the Lord Banana. It appeared before me while out walking. At first I was sore afraid. Scared the crap out of me, it did.

    But the Banana spake, saying: “Fear ye not, for I am the Banana. Blessed be thee for I have come to thee.”

    I immediately felt a calmness envelope me and fell to my knees before the great Banana.

    “Strewth, Lord. You scared the crap out of me!!!”

    The Banana then spake unto me once more.

    “Take ye a grip of my end with your left hand, my son, and bite unto the top of me.”

    I reluctantly did as he beckoned and did verily take him in my left hand and bit into the top of him.

    “Now, take thee thy right hand and peal back my skin,” sayeth the Banana. “Now thou shalt eat of my flesh.

    Which I did. And the flesh it was good. He didn’t say much after that.
