We are still deciding on the best type of adverts to put up along buses and subways, if you have any suggestions please feel free to comment. As of right now I think it would be best to use quotes that encourage free thinking from famous atheists and humanists. These quotes would be a great rebuttal to all of those adverts around the country that display bible verses. Nonetheless we should still have some sort of original slogan for the campaign as well.
Here are a few example quotes:
“The way to see by Faith is to shut the eye of Reason.” – Benjamin Franklin
“Since it is obviously inconceivable that all religions can’t be right, the most reasonable conclusion is that they are all wrong.” – Christopher Hitchens
“Question: How do you know you’re God?
Answer: Simple. WHen I pray to him, I find I’m talking to myself.” – Peter O’Toole
“Science has done more for the development of Western civilization in one hundred years than Christinaity did in eighteen hundred.” – John Burroughs
“The difference between religions and cults is determined by how much real estate is owned.” – Frank Zappa
“Faith is the great co-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.” – Richard Dawkins
There will be a compiled list of quotes posted later on once we get some more ideas rolling. Again, feel free to comment with your ideas and thoguhts.
*UPDATE* I have asked Ariane Sherine about the possibility of using “There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy life”, her response:
That’s certainly possible – they have done the same thing in Spain. Happy to let you use it if you go ahead.
Very best wishes,
It is not certain if we will use this yet but we’ll keep it open as an option.
*UPDATE* We’ll be using “There’s Probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” on our adverts. Stay tuned on whether we choose to put up other quotes along side, similar to the TubeCards in the UK.
