don’t you just love the word ‘probably’
It’s all a bit of a gag, i think. The bloggers have blogged and columnists columned (eg Ariane Sherine, whose idea it was and Ruth Gledhill). And Richard Dawkins is doubling the money raised. Good for them, I say.
But what i love is the use of the word ‘probably’.
Carlsberg had made it their very own (HT ads of the world):
It sounds so reasonable and humble. But it is a façade. Carlsberg were only saying probably because they have to. After all, how do you PROVE that Carlsberg is the best lager in the world. But despite their tongues being firmly rooted in their cheeks, of course they believe it is. Which is fine.
So the bendy-buses are to parade atheism, after the Christians parade the Christmas story. And that’s great. I have no problem with anyone advertising their worldviews on buses. That’s what democracy and free speech are all about. I just love the use of the word ‘probably’. Because it’s quite hard to enjoy life in this way, when there is the scintilla of doubt…
