I hope we can start a serious disscusion about having one Global Atheist Symbol to identify all the atheists in the World.

The two letters A + T are at the root of more than 80 official languages plus hundreds of unofficial languages or regional languages:

Hi Aberingi. I am in favor of the stylish circled A over T in order to make it as difficult as possible for the church et alia to depict us as malign. If uniting will result in our being depicted as more malign then it will not be worth doing. I am for moving ahead in any way we can to establish a universal symbol but with a symbol that will be read as standing for good. The style of the Nazi swastika for example did not lend itself to the presentation of a wholesome image. We can learn a lesson from the Gay community. In its fight for parity it vividly realizes the importance of not being depicted as malign and vehemently opposes any suggestions that it is. Let us not learn from the mistake of choosing an a-positive symbol what the Gay community knows so well about the importance of being received as having a conscionable message. I think the stylish version of the circled A over T will provide that the symbol stands for A-Theism rather than Anti-Theism but I am not so sure that the other symbols involving A and T will not be perceived as standing for anti-theism. I don't think it would be in the best interests of the movement for it to be labelled as anti-theist because this would make it too vulnerable to being scapegoated as evil.
this thread is depressing me. bicker bicker bicker.
overall this thread is just a dialogue not "bicker bicker bicker".
Sooner or later the issue of having an Universal Atheist Symbol had to come out and this is one of this moments.
I am Asok Kumar Das of Kolkata, India now at Pleasnton, California, USA. I want to say that a thing which does not exist at all cannot hate or love us. Hence God does not hate us. Be assured.


just something i whipped up, not too confident about it but i figured i'd put it out
Yes A/T is the answer. Althoug, this one is upside down T over A. The word atheism has to be written. Without a circle looks naked. Is good for a personalised logo on the net. The word atheism could be replaced by any of the over 80 official languages that use A/T as the root letter for ATheism.

Who is using this logo?.

Aberingi
ill try to work on a logo like that... i dont know who's using this logo? the one i just posted i made myself. but i think i can do what you described in an hour or so. i'll post it here when i'm done.


is this kind of what youre referring to? kind of just fiddling with green cuz i like green. =P
Hi Aberinqi and Jason. I know no harm is meant by the upside down T but I think theists would exploit it by saying Atheists (the A) want to slay theists (the upside down T). I still like the stylish circled A over T.
John Jubinsky: "..... I still like the stylish circled A over T."

This is my preference too--all silver, all black, or with the green T.
I can live with any of those. What can Atheists really do to make a symbol their official symbol?
This is exactly the type of thing that we need. It is positive and upbeat and we need to have this image so as not to fall prey to being scapegoated as malign by the church. It is especially good because it puts the T above the A so that theists cannot say it stands for anti-theism. Also, it has the word atheism in it with the a in lower case. This is modest thereby again protecting it from attacks to the effect that it stands for evil. Also, having the word Atheism in it literally demonstrates that it stands for Atheism and not anti-theism while informing the unknowing of what it represents. Finally, I think the blue on black color coding with the blue again as a shadow in the back gives it a cool and pleasant appearance that provides for it to be entertained nearly preclusively of an accompanying connotation of malignancy. In my opinion this is truly an excellent possibility.
