It keeps it light-hearted as well. Remember the message is intended to reassure people who are feeling guilty/worried/distressed by their faith as much as it's an advert for atheism.

I have never been too crazy about the "probably" being added but I guess it was a legal thing. Makes us seem as if we are unsure of ourselves.

Did anyone see the bus ads?

I was researching the donation of my carcass to science or a medical school after I'm done with it and found that it is covered in the UK by the Human Tissues Authority: http://www.hta.gov.uk I get a JRun Server error for this link. Anyone have another? [Note: in the US contact www.anatomicgift.com] Thai medical schools won't accept foreigners (a legal thing).

I had to laugh at this one....there is "a strict code of conduct in the dissection room, which includes only exposing the specific body part being examined." Just how modest are you when you're dead? You can always blame the small size on being stuck in a frig all night.

There is apparently a 30% shortfall in required bodies so all you atheists out there need to sign up if you truly believe you're going to end up as worm food in the end. Free cremation. Probably do need to opt out of the "small service" conducted unless its just the medical students standing around lifting a pint in your memory.

UK medical schools will only accept whole bodies which is a shame since it keeps you from also being an organ donor. Need to choose between transplant or teaching.

I'm not too crazy about leaving Thailand but in the current economy a job is a job. At least they aren't sending me back to the USA. Has everyone in the Uk figure out, with the choice of Rick Warren to lead the "invocation" at the inauguration, that Obama is just another two-faced politician or are you still falsely clinging to hope that he'll be different? USA is just a big, powerful retard.

Besides atrocious taxes, what can I expect living in Wales? Are there religious loonies running around knocking on doors? Hope so. I enjoy answering the door in my boxers, tatooes showing, then screaming "You better have a bloody good reason for waking me up so damn early!" Note the use of "bloody". I'm practicing.

I'm actually a Yank but the company is moving from Bangkok to the factory in Pencoed, Wales next month. Thought I would say hello to my future, heathen neighbors. I'm more a an apatheist as I rarely even give religion a thought.

My wife is a Thai Buddhist however. Does anyone know if there is a temple anywhere in southern Wales. She only goes for the big holidays so its no big deal really. She can wave her incense over a statue in the corner of the living room if the mood strikes her.
