The Atheist Bus Campaign Update

In the first “official” day of the campaign to put a pro-atheist slogan on buses in the UK, the goal of £5,500 was reached at 10:06 a.m. this morning. That amount puts the slogan on “30 buses across the capital for four weeks.”

As of this moment, they’ve raised nearly £50,000. And that’s not including Richard Dawkin’s £5,500 matching gift.


Jon Worth and the British Humanist Association ought to just buy their own bus and run the ad indefinitely.

It’s a good investment, since they’ll be needing the bus when they make their way to hell :)

    Amazing! And people say atheists never donate and are hard to rally behind a cause…

    Grammar fix: needed => needing.

    Use the money to buy the city a Heathen Mobile. It could be covered with anti-religious logos like a Nascar vehicle is with advertisments for junk food products, and could run entirely on the souls of the innocent. It could be like a tourist attraction for sane people.

    This is really the best way to champion atheism with over £50,000? I’m disappointed.

    As much as I deplore NASCAR, I adore Asylum Seeker’s suggestion, and I think having an actual NASCAR vehicle festooned with Darwin fish and anti-religion/pro-atheism (or at least pro-freethought) slogans would be well worth the money. That sort of advertising, however, probably costs something on the order of million$.

    The next bus slogan should simply be, “Don’t Panic” in honor of the late, great, Douglas Adams.

    A commenter on a theistic blog suggested that it wasn’t a good use of money when compared to helping starving people. I wonder if they’d feel similar about the erection of enormous crosses?

    Shit. If it’s this easy, why aren’t there more drives like this in the US?

    We need to get organized behind this stuff more often.
