Early Day Motion 424: There's Probably No God Advertising Campaign was an Early Day Motion proposed by Gregory Campbell on 13th January 2009.

The motion stated:

"That this House notes the recent advertising campaign based on London buses, There's Probably No God, the brainchild of the British Humanist Association; also notes the fact that the rationale behind it is that people can be less careful about their lifestyle choices and general approach to life's consequences by discounting the likelihood of a Creator and an afterlife; and recommends to Christian groups considering alternative advertising approaches to There's Probably No God to counter it with the simple addition of But What If There Is?"
