Atheist bus ads may be crossing the pond

This Magazine Staff

Last week This editor Graham F. Scott blogged about a group of atheists in England who raised money to buy ad space on 200 London buses with the slogan: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”
Now the Globe and Mail is reporting that the ad effort may soon be making its way to the streets (and subways) of Toronto. York University student Chris Hammond launched atheistbus.ca last week, and hopes to raise at least $6,000 to buy ad space on the TTC. The ads are meant to be a reaction to the Christian ads featuring Bible quotes that can sometimes be seen around Toronto. He told the Globe,
“There’s atheists that are out there. This will show them they are not alone.”
