Britain’s Ad-Board is apparently dodging their responsibility to create clear and accurate standards on the question of God’s existence. We will not be getting a definitive response on whether the claim that “God probably does not exist” is a factually true or false claim. According to the BBC:
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said it would not be further investigating any complaints about the campaign, which was launched on British buses and the London Underground on the 6 January.
Although the watchdog acknowledged the content of the campaign would be at odds with the beliefs of many, it concluded that it was unlikely to mislead or to cause “serious or widespread offence”.
I’d really hoped we could put this whole question behind us — but alas, perhaps someday a better, more concerned, advertising board will take up this important question and settle the problem forever.
