“For the devout Christian and man of principle, it was a step too far. Bus driver Ron Heather took one look at the 20ft-long banner declaring ‘There’s probably no God’ on the side of his vehicle and refused to get behind the wheel. Saying the atheist advert conflicted with his beliefs, he walked out of his shift in protest.
Now bosses at First Bus in Southampton have accommodated 62-year-old Mr Heather’s convictions by making other buses without the advert available to him. The vehicle was one of 800 across the country to feature the controversial £140,000 advertising campaign, the first of its kind, run by the British Humanist Association. The slogan says: ‘There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.’ The campaign has been backed by evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins, who claims the existence of God is about as likely as that of the tooth fairy.”
