Alternative atheist bus advert

February 27, 2010

Atheists want to spread their message on the sides of New Zealand buses.

There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and get on with your life.

An alternative message might be:

Atheists will probably go to Hell. That’s a shame, isn’t it.

Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to move out of the atheist camp.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son. So that whosoever believes in him might not perish, but have everlasting life.
