Kewl. I'll Go Play Lotto.

"There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."

Probably? Where did this group find the statistics it's quoting? "Probably" no God... what are the probabilities? How would you ever know? And have you considered the consequences if you're wrong in taking your chances?

Well, an atheist group managed to scrape up enough money to advertise on four "bendy busses" in London for four weeks. I've seen a "bendy bus" at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney, and it's basically a two-part car with an accordion-like middle so it can get around corners well.

"Stephen Green of pressure group Christian Voice said: 'Bendy-buses, like atheism, are a danger to the public at large.'" Who says only the religious are looking for converts?

  1. Atheist groups are hilarious to me. People united together around something that DON'T believe in....as oppossed to every other organization/church/society that unites around something they DO believe in.

    Odd, isn't it?

  2. I have a master's degree in statistics. Whenever you make a mathematical model to calculate probability, you have to make assumptions. If your assumptions are faulty, then so are your conclusions! I wonder what they are going to say when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess. . .
