Internets 1, Allah 0

Some Iranian Islamic cleric got caught on film fucking a hooker. The video quickly got uploaded onto the Iranian internets. They should stone the bastard, just like they do with all other adulterers, right?

London Atheist Bus Ad Campaign

There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.

That's the message of a bunch of London atheists who have begun a massive ad campaign in response to a silly "Jesus Said" ad campaign already underway:

Today, thanks to many Cif readers, the overall total raised for the Atheist Bus Campaign stands at a truly overwhelming £135,000, breaking our original target of £5,500 by over 2400%. Given this unexpected amount, I'm very excited to tell you that 800 buses – instead of the 30 we were initially aiming for – are now rolling out across the UK with the slogan, "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life", in locations all over England, Scotland and Wales, including Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, York, Cardiff, Devon, Leeds, Bristol and Aberdeen.

From today's launch, two hundred of the buses will run in London, because the campaign was originally started as a positive counter-response to the Jesus Said ads running on London buses in June 2008. These ads displayed the URL of a website which stated that non-Christians "will be condemned to everlasting separation from God and then you spend all eternity in torment in hell … Jesus spoke about this as a lake of fire prepared for the devil". Our rational slogan will hopefully reassure anyone who has been scared by this kind of evangelism.
