Christian challenges atheist bus advert

From the page: Mr Green released a statement saying: “I believe the ad breaks the Advertising Code, unless the advertisers hold evidence that God probably does not exist.

“The ASA does not just cover goods and services, it covers all advertising. The advertisers cannot hide behind the ASA’s ‘matters of opinion’ exclusion, because no person or body is named as the author of the statement. It is given as a statement of fact and that means it must be capable of substantiation if it is not to break the rules.”

Mr Green has challenged the adverts on grounds of “truthfulness” and “substantiation”, suggesting that there is not “a shred of supporting evidence” that there is probably no God.

…which is hilarious when you consider that there isn’t a shred of supporting evidence that there is one.
