Wow! Great post, Tim!

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

Do they think that Christians sit around worrying constantly? That without my faith, I would have more fun?

As Bugs Bunny would say, "They don't know me very well, do they?"

Here's my suggestion for a similar ad campaign in America:

"There's probably no Heaven. So get to work, battling the despair of THIS existence. VOTE PRO LIFE!"

Paul S.

"The second sentence is simply inane and could have been tagged on by any group; Buddhists - "Life is an illusion. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."... Muslims - "There is no God but God, and Mohamed is His Prophet. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."... Insurance companies - "ABC Insurance is rated #1 in customer service. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."."

You crack me up.

"There is entailed in this also the curious idea that atheists now find evangelism and missionary work - that is, assertively trying to convert people out of their own presently held beliefs - to be quite commendable. Given that this has been a favorite charge against the Church - that we don't respect others' right to their own beliefs and culture, that we won't let things be - this is quite a step for atheists. They now give tacit assent to the importance of "spreading the good news", and it is refreshing and comforting that we now enjoy their understanding and sympathy, at least on that point."

Yes, and as always the atheists would never admit to this. They would say something like it was the result of a collective consciousness being realized. Atheism is self-refutation.

Excellent post.

ZING!

I agree!

It seems that the atheists aren't even sure what they believe anymore.

'probably'.

What a joke. They should be agnostics, probably. LOL!
