God-botherers annoyed by bus adverts

Personally, I thought the Atheist bus adverts were fantastic.

However, Christian Voice, with what appear to be grand delusions of their own relevance in modern society, have complained to the ASA claiming, and this bit is a fucking hoot, that:

"There is plenty of evidence for God, from people's personal experience, to the complexity, interdependence, beauty and design of the natural world.

"But there is scant evidence on the other side, so I think the advertisers are really going to struggle to show their claim is not an exaggeration or inaccurate, as the ASA code puts it."

Plenty of evidence for God?

Other than that from nutters such as yourself?

Right, thought not. As you were.

Ok, so an ad on a bus suggests that God does not exist. Well, that's a relief. We can all relax cos Richard Dawkins has done the thinking for us.

I do believe the whole ad idea is insane, but let them waste their money if they want to.

So it's ok when the God Squad are out in force terrorizing revellers enjoying a well deserved night out in our town centres when all they want to do is get chinese-eyed, but when someone outs an ad up claiming there "probably" is no God, then they can take offence? Is this perhaps because they are afraid that if people drift from the "faith" then they start to lose any control they think they can have over them? I'm not a "Botherer" myself but i'm a firm believer in the old adage "whatever floats your boat" so long as nobody is being harmed in the process, this is something the God Squad should bear in mind, especially when the Bible quotes Jesus as saying "turn the other cheek"

The only proof that there is a god, is all made up. There is a massive amount of evidence against the 'perfect by design' theory for a start, and the rest is easily disproved.
If their faith was strong enough, they would not be so easily upset by the advert in the first place.
