Atheist bus campaign

March 21, 2009
The atheist bus campaign has legs. It has spread to Barcelona Spain, much to the annoyance of the Catholic Church. It's rolling along in Toronto, Canada. And after a rough start, the campaign is even in Genoa, Italy. (The first Italian bus touting their message, "The Good News Is There Are Millions of Atheists In Italy; The Excellent News Is They Believe In Freedom Of Expression" conked out and had to head back to the depot for repairs.)

It's also about to start up in Seattle, Washington. The campaign will place ads inside 40 buses. They won't be as "in your face" as the European ads. Here are a couple examples:
"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires." Susan B. Anthony

"If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed." Albert Einstein
The movement even has a Wikipedia entry. Here is a link to a list of celebrity atheist and agnostics. Below is a video with Richard Dawkins and Ariana Sherine talking about the bus campaign.
