New Atheism Bus Ad Uses Famous Woody Allen Line

Christians, say it in a really nebbishy voice, and it won't hurt so bad.

The new campaign, titled "a celebration of reason", was just launched in Australia to coincide with next month's 2012 Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne. Says Atheist Foundation president David Nicholls:

Woody Allen’s words encapsulate the thoughts of the freethinking community and the sneaking suspicions of a growing number of religious people as well. Considering the immensity of the unnecessary death, pain and suffering on the planet, an alleged all-powerful and all-loving god certainly has a lot to answer for.

I guess this Allen God quote was too esoteric: "As the poet said, ‘Only God can make a tree,’ probably because it’s so hard to figure out how to get the bark on."
