NZ Atheist Bus Campaign Seeks Donations

NZ Atheist Bus Campaign Seeks Donations to Spread Message


Click for big version

The New Zealand Atheist Bus Campaign plans to put ads carrying atheist and humanist messages on buses in major NZ cities, encouraging Kiwis to think critically about their beliefs.

Following the success of the original UK campaign and other campaigns around the world, a positive message of atheism and humanism will soon be travelling around on NZ buses.

Buses will feature the same slogan that was used in the UK campaign "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."

The campaign will be entirely funded by donations from the public, with administrative support provided by the Humanist Society of New Zealand. People are able to make donations online at http://nogod.org.nz/.

"While New Zealand is by and large a very tolerant and inclusive society, there is still stigma associated with an atheistic position. At the same time we have recently seen the growing influence of radical religious groups such Brian Tamaki's Destiny Church. With this campaign we hope to encourage positive debate on these issues - religion should not be a taboo topic." said campaign spokesperson Simon Fisher.

The Atheist Bus Campaign is designed to get people to think critically about their religious beliefs, and rationally about the world in general. The campaign promotes a positive humanist world view, and the affirmation that there is no need to believe in a supernatural being to live a full and rich life.

For further information about the campaign see the website at http://nogod.org.nz/
