Atheist Buses Abroad

Mark Meynell has some smart words to say on the Atheist Bus nonsense

Now I’m sure you’ve talked about the Atheist buses adverts. And believe it or not, I’m a fan. They’re great. They get God on the agenda. But consider this. Can you imagine how they’d go down on buses in Kisangani or Kampala?

There’s probably no God – now stop worrying and enjoy your life.

Enjoy life? That’s not even an option! For countless people in our world, enjoying life doesn’t even come into it. Mere survival is all they can expect. No, you could only get away with this sort of bus thing in an affluent comfortable society like ours.
