Dead-eye Dick Dawkins is at it again. Dick and his humanist disciples are going to advertise on our bendy buses.
"There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."
Let's just break that down, shall we?
"There's probably no God."
Yes, this is the best that science can come up with. "Probably". Science does not prove that there wasn't a creator. So it's basically a matter of belief or non-belief.
"Now stop worrying".
Just a minute. Who's doing the worrying?
Believers aren't worrying about whether there's a God.
Non-believers aren't worrying about whether there's a God.
"and enjoy your life."
If you're the sort of person who spends a lot of your time worrying whether there's a God, you sound like you've got a masochistic streak. So maybe you're the sort of person who enjoys this worrying.
Both the British Humanist Association and the Methodist Church believe the campaign will make people think.
It makes me think the £36,000 raised for the advertising would be better spent alleviating suffering somewhere.
