Atheist ads liken Allah and Jesus to Bigfoot


With pro-atheism ads rolling around on buses worldwide for the past two years, how could the nonbelievers still get a rise out of the righteous? Comparing Jesus and Allah to Bigfoot and Zeus is one way to go. Canada's atheistic Centre for Inquiry plans to start a new Toronto bus campaign in January with the headline, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence," followed by this list: "Allah, Bigfoot, UFOs, Homeopathy, Zeus, Psychics, Christ." Campaign coordinator Justin Trottier says the ads aren't about "knee-jerk debunking" and adds: "We're interested in a genuine debate, a conversation about so-called extraordinary claims. We're not here to mock people who believe in these claims." Riiiight. Who could possibly feel mocked when their messiah is put on par with psychics and Sasquatch?
