    Stephen Green can fuck right off.
    Not sure if I totally agree with the whole "Hm. Christians are preachy, I know, we should be. Let's join together under our beliefs. That's not hypocritical" thing, but fuck Stephen Green.

    Yeah, that's the way to get back at the preachy proselytizing Christians.


    Seriously... fuck that shit.

    There's probably no god?

    That doesn't sound like the words of a tr00 atheist to me. It sounds like something an agnostic would say, on a bad day. You're not an atheist if you're not 100% committed to your belief!

    They had to say probably, since the advertising watchdog whatevers over there require you to back up any claims you make in an ad, and you can't prove there is no God.

    Yah I read that but still...I'm sure they could have done better. Probably sounds so suggestive and weak. And yah, it's basically impossible to prove the non-existence of something that's never had any proof of existence to begin with. :loco:

    When you're dealing with people who are likely to believe in a god, it's easier to suggest that there probably isn't one, than to completely deny one. That's easier for a person to just dismiss.

    Sounds like a cool campaign. I'd be happy to see an ad like that.

    Ironically the reason I don't worry is because I believe there is a God. If there wasn't one I would be worried as hell (note: not worried about hell).

    If I were a Christian I'd be pissed off at Stephen Green for attempting to speak on my behalf and making me look like a complete idiot with no sense of humour. It's always funny how people in positions like his actually do the people they supposedly represent disservice after disservice. Just keep digging, guys.

    I don't see how this is different than a "come to Jesus" poster.

    If I were in Stephen Green's position I would not be taking any kind of action, except possibly making a statement or whatever. It's not going to do much except to cause people to think about things, which in fact is a positive thing. But I agree with him that there is plenty of evidence for God. Not test tube evidence, and not hard proof, but things which an individual can evaluate and come to a decision to believe.

    I wonder who the "stop worrying" is directed at. I think it obviously stems from the misconception of what Christianity is about, seeing it as primarily behavior control through guilt. So are they trying to get Christians to stop believing so they can start enjoying their lives? Or are the appealing to those who are not Christians, but who might be plagued by their consciences about some of their actions? Or maybe it is appealing to non-Christians who are trying to decide if they want to become Christians.

    Either way it is a waste of their time, money and effort.

    The worrying is whether there's a God who will damn you to Hell if you don't worship him to some completely arbitrary degree, from simply acknowledging his existence to devoting every iota of your life to him.

    Kind of like religion, amirite?
