There Probably is no God

The launch, held (January 6th) near the Albert memorial, featured speeches by Dawkins, author of The God Delusion; Ariane Sherine, creator of the Atheist Bus Campaign; and Hanne Stinson, from the British Humanist Association. (Guardian UK)

Short video interview here:

...a new campaign in Britain to get atheists to "come out."

Around £6,000 was needed to run adverts in London but within two days, individuals and organisations had pledged more than £87,000. More than £135,000 has been pledged so far.

Despite receiving more than 300 complaints,The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) concluded that the campaign did not contravene the code and it would therefore not launch an investigation.

The authority said it had received 326 complaints about the campaign, some claiming it was offensive to people of faith and others challenging whether the advertisement was misleading.

...complaints from Christians, some of whom claimed it breached ASA codes on substantiation and truthfulness. The slogan should read There Probably Is A God, they claimed.
