In 2009 atheists in the United Kingdom launched a public campaign to preach their message of unbelief by using advertising space on public busses. These busses are emblazed with the slogan, “There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

Some people find this slogan rather odd. If these atheists are so sure there’s no god why does the sign say, “There’s PROBABLY no god.” Atheists have responded by pointing out that they can’t say there’s no god, because that would be taking a faith position.

But perhaps more puzzling is the second part of the slogan, which reads, “Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” This prompted one journalist, skeptical of religious beliefs to write, “What on earth is there to celebrate? We’re talking about death, about not existing, being wiped out forever and it could happen any time. If that’s not cause for worry what is?”

It seems Atheism is devoid of answers and devoid of hope.
