you have got to be kidding me...

yup, as mentioned elsewhere ol' stephen 'dogshit' green is at it again. he is filing a complaint with the ASA that the atheist bus campaign "there probably is no god..." contravenes advertising standards because, and get this, they do not "hold evidence that god probably does not exist."! 

oh dear. steve, old chap, i'm afraid there is ample evidence that if not any god, at least your god probably does not exist. and it's all around you steve. everywhere. 

the natural world proves that god probably does not exist. as we only have one (count 'em folks) piece of evidence in favour of god (the holy babble). if god exists how could he have got the creation story so pathetically wrong? to my mind it sounds like the kind of story ancient egyptian royalty would have come up with (whoops!). so what gives?

then of course there's the universe. and genetics. and good old-fashioned reason. there would seem to be ample evidence. this could well blow up in poor stevie's face.

thanks, once again, to the esteem-able PZ for the tip off. the heresiarch's all over this one as well.

UPDATE: its gotten worser! at the Granuidad we have some daft bugger trotting out the old anthropic fallacy. oh dear, oh dear, oh dear,as DA so eloquently put it: "...imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, 'This is an interesting world I find myself in - an interesting hole I find myself in - fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it's still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for."
