Ariane Sherine is a 29 year old British comedy writer & journalist. She is also an Atheist.
In June 2008, Ariane saw a red London bus featuring a Bible quote and the URL of a website. When she visited the website, it told her non-Christians would burn in hell for all eternity. Ariane then wrote an article for The Guardian’s Comment Is Free site, “Atheists – Gimme Five”, At the end of her article, keen to suggest a solution, she proposed: [if all atheists reading this] contribute £5, it’s possible that we can fund a much-needed atheist London bus ad with the slogan: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and [enjoy] your life.”
Thus was born the Atheist Bus Campaign! You see the link provided in the header of this blog? Ok, so many Atheists responded and in January of this year the buses with the ads were running around in London. By now, it has spread to cities Germany, Canada, Finland, Holland, Switzerland, Croatia, Spain, Italy & the US.
