Atheists in England Sued for False Advertising

Okay, they’re really agnostics, so that’s a little false advertising on my part. In case you don’t know, agnostics (from the Greek word gnosis meaning knowledge) claim no knowledge of God. Atheists, on the other hand, claim that there is no God and that they are certain of it.

Anyways, a group of agnostics started and advertising campaign via eight hundred of England’s public transportation buses. Each bus displayed a sign which read: "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."

So now the agnostics are being sued for false advertising by Christian Voice, an organization in England which seeks to defend Christianity in a secular society that works to oppose it more and more.

Apparently it all comes down to England’s rules for advertising. “According to [Advertising Standards Authority] codes,” reads one article on the issue, “advertisements are not allowed to mislead consumers, so advertisers must hold evidence to prove the claims they make about their products or services before an ad appears.”

In other words, the agnostics must have some proof related the probable non-existence of God!

All I can say is well done Christian Voice!
