Letter: Believe in not believing

By Tristan Schorn

Editor, the Gauntlet,

With regards to the article “The birth of the atheist evangelical” [Tyler Wolfe, Jan. 22] Wolfe’s comparison of the atheist bus ads with religious proselytizing is absurd. In no way does the atheist campaign tell you how to live your life or what to believe, it specifically tells you one thing not to believe in: the existence of a god. And this is perfectly legitimate, in that all evidence points definitively in the direction that a god probably doesn’t exist. Even the wording of the ads is incredibly fair, with the use of the word probably.
