The Fool Says in His Heart…

I enjoyed this short blog by Phil Ryken about somenew bus advertisements in London.  The British Humanist Association is running a month-long series of adds on the sides of buses saying, “There’s probably no God, now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”  Ryken says:

Word for word, the ad may contain more ironies than any other eleven-word slogan in the history of advertising.  For starters, it is interesting to see the BHA hedging its bets by saying there “probably” isn’t a God instead of coming right out and saying “there is no God.”  If the fool says in his heart that there is no God (see Psalm 14:1), then what should we call someone who says that there probably is no God?
