    Then there should be banners arguing for religion. Fair is fair.
    That's the reason they're putting the atheist banners up in the first place.

    Against it. How is that any better than force-feeding religion, it's the exact same thing. Let people live how they want.

    It's hardly force-feeding religion on anyone, just as putting a McDonalds advert on a bus is hardly force-feeding big macs on anyone. It's just an annoying little sign that will please atheists and aggravate theists.

    For it in one way, as it's a step towards matching religious advertising, which is a good thing i feel.
    Against it more though, I think, as certainly the money can be spent on better things.
    Certainly if you don't believe eternal salvation will be caused by this, I'm not sure it's worth the money, compared with charity.

    Why do athiests care so much if someone is religious anyway? Some theists try and get people to convert because they feel they are saving them from hell etc, but what leads atheists to try and get everyone to give up their beliefs?

    I think this is a bad idea. If they are going to do this then they should put religious advertisements aswell otherwise its unfair.

    I think its pretty hypocritical, The way I see it, atheism is a religious choice/belief, same as being a christian, muslim, jew whatever. So to put the ideas on buses is preaching. Its the same as any other religion trying to convert people,, which i think is wrong. People should just have their own belief and keep it to themselves.

    I'm an athiest, dont see what all the fuss is about really... Religion isnt a big thing where i live, 90% of people are middle class atheists... I've never seen a poster advertising 'religion', i've seen posters advertising church meetings every now and then but that's kind of different.

    Londons a very different place from where i live so i dont think i can really comment on this. Very funny quote from the christian bloke though "Bendy-buses, like atheism, are a danger to the public at large." :laughing:

    Some find it annoying when people believe seemingly nonsensical things.
    Also, probably more the fact that people have tried to push religious views on them, causign a dislike of religion..or they could be against negative effects in society or w/e.
    As for me, atheist as I am, I couldn't care less what other people believe.

    I don't mean it like that, I mean it's hypocritical if they are putting those up to protest freedom of belief.

    If it was intended as a retaliation to religious posters then it's more understandable, but I've never actually seen any religious advertisments on Buses.

    Seems pointless to me. Anyone reading the sign already knows and believes what it says, or will never believe what it says.

    I don't think that there should be anything publicised relating to religion, even though I am atheist myself, basically because belief is a personal subject and others shouldn't be subjected to listening to others views whether religious or otherwise. Perhaps I'm wrong, I don't know.
    Why must we always tip toe around religion. Other personal beliefs are fine to question /sigh.
