Debate on existence of God won by sticker on the side of a bus

A large atheistic sticker which reads "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life" on the side of a bus was today awarded the Nobel Prize for Debate after yesterday winning the coveted Oxford Student Union Red-stripe of Argument following its successful denunciation of religious faith.

"It has taken thousands of years and millions of deaths arguing over whose manmade image of a possibly extra-worldy force was better and we have never reached a conclusion. Until now," explained Professor J. Scott Billingsworth, the somewhat erratic behavioural psychologist from the Jeremy Kyle University.

The sticker finally won the debate when it was taken to the Advertising Standards Agency by Christian Voice, an institute for well-meaning people to support each other’s irrational views that preach about how complete strangers should live their lives and teach their children.

"There is plenty of evidence for God, from people's personal experience, such as when they are shouted at by religious people in the streets, " said Bill Worthings a spokesman for a religious think tank. "Just look at the complexity, interdependence, beauty and design of the natural world which is having the shit bombed out of it in the middle-east by two groups of God’s children earnestly debating over which flavour is best."

The debate - as to whether or not God exists, what kind of God He is and why He creates all the nasty people, events and evil in the world - has baffled those who fail to see irrationality as the only means of explanation. However most rational commentators believe complaining to the ASA is an admission of defeat.

"There is scant evidence that God doesn’t exist," said Worthings. "It’s not about what is written on the bus, one must look deeper and peek inside the bus. All of the faithless struggle with Soduku, or Crosswords, whereas anything a believer doesn’t understand, he just fills in the word God or a variation. Job done, Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Now let us imprison the gays."

The sticker was not available for comment, although there are persistent rumours that it will replace Rufus Hound as the blue team’s captain on the TV programme "Argumental".
