You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

aha, that’s funny.
Allthough, it should be a bit more accurate. “invisible bus”
But if you’ve seen a bus, heard a bus, rode in a bus or been hit by a bus feel free to wait for the bus.
If I know how long it will take me to walk to the next bus stop down the line, and I have enough time, I’ll nearly always start walking. Pedantically, the existence of buses is easy to establish empirically, and in my experience they mostly follow their assigned routes and schedules quite reliably. Much more reliably than carpooling.
Yeah, just because the bus stop is evidence of the bus’ existence doesn’t mean that the world is evidence of god’s existence. Anthropic principle. Plus, the bus eventually confirms the hypothesis.
Uh, yeah, strike “anthropic principle.” I was trying to do two things at once.
It’s probably true. It probably went by just before you got there and it will be at least 30 min to an hour before another comes, IF there’s another.
Thanks for getting this out to a wider audience than would have seen it on my blog. But I should point out that I have no idea who made it or where it came from; I can’t claim any creative input myself.
I. Thou shalt have no other buses before me.
It’s not atheist, it’s abusist.
David, I’m feeling abusisted by these puns.
Wasn’t that bus DESIGNED? Intelligently too?
