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:

Do you mean the A/T symbol?


This is a good design for tattooing: http://simboloateo.tumblr.com/

The basic symbol A + T + circle is the most popular for the web:

I understand that being atheist makes you think in religious terms and with little thought you throw into the rubbish bin an innovative symbol that has nothing to do with religion. Why don't you compare the symbol with its utopian friends like the PEACE symbol that shook the Twentieth Century in the sixties that envisioned the climate change and promoted recycling of waste, saving fauna and flora, challenged consumerism, etc. And the Anarchist Symbol that has the most advanced utopian ideas humankind has ever invented. Neither of them ever refered to religion at all.

Why don't we put the A/T symbol in the same category?. Why we have to refrain atheism to science alone?.

Maybe that's too difficult for all atheists, but recognition inter alia between atheists would be usefully improved for those who want it.
I like Aberingi's version when rendered as a black lapel badge (as shown in the tattoo above). I would wear that with ease.
It's incredible. I didn't think that you were so narrow minded :-). Consider the A/T symbol not as the PEACE symbol, never there was a hippy organization it only served a purpose to proudly, individually an globally to be identified with other alike. Woostock is an example of mass gathering of individuals expressing their lifestyle. Why since I started this thread, atheist reply comparing this amazing innovative initiative to create something like de peace symbol into a fear of a supposed atheist religion.

Time to time, the reality is that many atheists individuals like the idea. The ATOM and scarlet A a very far from becoming global. The A/T has all the chances to be the one.

Sorry this reply was intended for ORANGE, I, of course agree with Dr. Terence.
I know your logo I have seen it at Barcelona's Zoo, Spain, I live in a near by city.
Now is dead his name was "copito de nieve" "little snow flake". :-)
How in the name of reason could A-Theism ever be considered a faith? It literally means 'without theism'! According to Webster theism is the belief in a god or gods. A-Theism is the absence of such beliefs! Professing Atheism would in fact be a statement against faith! You then say the only thing that holds us together is that we all disbelieve in god/gods. This is exactly what the symbol would depict! Are you being rational?
You do know that many theists think atheism is a faith right?
Of course, what else they can think. It is their problem, no ours.

Aberingi
I will be totally honest. I have encountered a lot of theists in my 63 years and have never met one who thought Atheism was a faith. Most of the theists that I have encountered saw Atheists as morally deficient people who needed to see the light and be prayed for.
Hi Orange. What I cannot grant is that Atheism is in any way a faith or religion. Faith and religion involve a belief in a supposed god or gods. Atheism rejects the possibility of the existence of a god. In this sense it is the antithesis of faith and religion. Rather than religious, the differences among Atheists are political. Although it might not be true in your case, labeling them as religious reeks of the deployment of scare tactics to serve a hidden agenda. A hidden agenda especially comes to mind in the knowledge that the proposed symbol is being opposed when it is generic in nature, stands for no more than a rejection of worship and would empower all Atheists. Some Atheists are more critical than others and the proposed symbol is not critical in nature. I think this might be the hidden reason that some Atheists are opposing it.

He is not saying it is just acknowledging that some people do.
