There are probably three gods in a convoy

Atheist buses go nationwide (Guardian)

How ludicrous that tenets of philosophy, or science for that anti-matter, should be promoted like suntan lotion with slogans on the sides of buses. Will some cabal of Cartesians and followers of Pascal get together to sponsor posters with "I think therefore I am and I'm putting my shirt on God" for the sides of other buses. Will the Vatican bankroll a campaign to promulgate little mottoes formerly confined to small posters on church noticeboards. Will climate change enthusiasts and opponents sponsor slogans on buses that say, "It's not overheating. Chill out, now just enjoy life" or "We're all going to fry. It's too late. You are to blame."
