Newsflash: There is no God… probably!

Atheist poster on bus“Atheists clamber on board in Dawkins-driven ad campaign.” So we have atheists running an ad campaign on London buses do we? Ironic as I am sure a lot of prayers went up following the 7/7 terrorist attacks on the London buses. Honestly, some people obviously have more money than sense.

So let’s work this through. Someone thought about the concept of this campaign, then designed the poster, on a bus that someone else designed, driven on roads that were designed, in a city that has been designed – all using creativity, imagination, logic…

…oh sorry, no they didn’t – it happened by chance and a random series of events over time – there was this huge explosion in a soup bowl in this restaurant, and low and behold within a matter of time a poster appeared – maybe someone threw ink on the paper several times and freak snow-storm on a sunny day circumvented the printing process and it appeared out of the chaos as if by magic!

What a complete load of scientific clap-trap. It’s an insult to my logical designer’s mind, and the years of experience via blood, sweat and tears.

Oh but hold on, I am not supposed to think am I?

Dawkins said: “This campaign to put alternative slogans on London buses will make people think – and thinking is anathema to religion.”

Right then, so we are back to Descartes “I think therefore I am” are we? Talk about progression, where as for me, “I am therefore I think”.

But that’s possibly because I equally am as designed as that poster or that bus by someone whom was once asked His name, and simply replied “I am”. (Exodus 3:14)

I am… what? See no more explanations or qualifications, nothing like ‘I am great’, or ‘I am beautiful’ or even ‘I am God’… because your mind would only limit the creative possibilities via an adjective of all that could be imagined and it still would not even come close, and therefore we are left with the most ultimate descriptor we can tangibly grasp, “I am…”

Genius! Blows my little transistors just thinking about it. Now that’s copywriting for you.

Just, please don’t you think about it – you may find yourself becoming an atheist – “probably” – as apparently even Richard Dawkins is not convinced!

Now am just left thinking the cost of campaign could have helped people in a lot more practical ways – and logically, why He has sold a few more books then you, Mr. Dawkins.

    I do believe that Mr Dawkins once said that the only thing he had been unable to prove was that there wasn’t a God!

    Get your noggin round that logic!

    I believe that there is a pink elephant flying around the universe spewing jelly babies- now I challenge you to go and prove to me that it doesn’t exist. However you might concede that it ‘probably’ doesn’t.

    Of course as a scientist you can never prove a negative, only accept that there is not a single shred of evidence for a god.

    Oh my gosh, you are so right in your logical deduction!

    And to think I have been deluded all these years thinking there may actually have been some kind of design mould to this, when actually it was all just a random series of events…

    To think the jelly baby ‘probably’ doesn’t actually have a mould, let alone the elephant. Squirt the jelly out there, and hey presto – it has a head, arms and legs… and I wonder how many years it took for the elephant to develop knee caps all facing the same way unlike the rest of the animals – must have been so difficult in the beginning for the poor thing – and I bet there is so much evidence to show the development of the moving knee cap out there too!

    Or is my scientific reasoning so off?
