*God is not probable in Sweden*
According to the new posters in Swedenâs capitol Stockholm *God is not
probable*. The advertisement reads that 7 million Swedes do not claim to be religious (out of a 9 million population). But still, the sub heading say, God affects our lives and all too many citizens still support the former state church (since the year 2000)by their membership and the taxes they pay as a result.
- We like people to reflect on the fact that religion plays a more
significant role then they perceive, says Christer Sturmark, head of the Swedish Humanist association, to Resume.se in an interview.
Behind the advertisement we find the Swedish humanist society that seeks to promote humanism and debates about religion in politics and policy. In order to do that the advertisement comes with a questionnaire on the internet that will give you a verdict on your answers. Are you a full blown humanist, moderate or a believer in Godâs law in society?
Note. The Swedish sentence âGud finns nog inteâ, is hard to translate
directly to English. The best translation in my humble opinion is *God is not probable. * Word by word: *God exist probably not*.

Update 6/10 from Patrik Lindenfors
The Swedish Humanists have now launched the atheist campaign in
Sweden with the slogan God probably doesn't exist. It has a particularly Swedish twist, playing with the cross on the Swedish flag. There is an accompanying web-site here: http://www.gudfinnsnoginte.se (in Swedish) or click image to go to Swedish flash site
and a book by Patrik in Swedish
