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 Orange. We might be landing on the same page. In the part of your original statement where you said "then there is the other issue in regards to Atheists that don't want to be seen as just another faith so to speak" I thought you were suggesting that Atheism could be a faith. Then in your follow up statement you said that maybe you should have used "organized religion" instead of "faith so to speak". This would have read "then there is the other issue in regards to Atheists that don't want to be seen as just another organized religion". Again I thought you were suggesting that Atheism could be an organized religion especially when you used the word, creeds, to describe the differing Atheist perspectives. I am glad you didn't mean that Atheism could be a faith or religion. I hope nobody else thought that you meant it could be.

Live long.....
I hope you continue to feel free to express your very interesting and stimulating thoughts.

Live long......Orange
Hi John,

The proposal is not "Aberingi's symbol" the A/T circled was born in 2000 in a cyberassembly held by Spanish speaking people all over the World, mainly latin countries.

The propsed symbol has no intention to be an organizational unbrela for atheist and does no want to compete with existing symbols, the more atheist symbols are designed de better for diversity and knowledge.

I my self as a citizen follow different symbols. My city Town, Barcelo, Spain Europen Union and the United Nations for example.

The need for a global atheist symbol is obvious and it only serves a purpose...

To be able to identify ourselves despite language, culture or country. We deserve to stand up globally, this will help many atheists to come out of the closet specially those that live under theologist distatorships.

Cheers.

PD.- This design is good for tattooing, many of my friends already have tattooed it. I personally don't like tattoos, I prefer the basic circled A/T for a key holder. There is no copyrights its GNU Free to use and free to reproduce.

I like this gleaming version. Right now it is too easy for the theist community to depict us as bad, negative or even evil. A positive symbol like this one would leave us much less vulnerable to attack as malign.
This is just another design. Taken out of a design contest we made in 2008.

The good thing about the A/T circled is that as far that the 90% of the basic symbol is respected anybody can make their own design. There are already quite a few personalised ones. Even some people, gropus and organisations have given the A/T symbol a double meaning by inputting flags, for example:

the Vasque one.


Or without circle:


Or hand made on the wall:


ETC., imagination and responsability are endless.

The most popular and the "official"

one is this one:
I think one of the stylish dynamic versions would better convey that we are not malign.
Hi Orange........An Atheist Academy would require that there were dogma to be taught. Are you contradicting your earlier position that you cannot see Atheists coming together under one banner (system of beliefs) due to their diversified perspectives? Also, again you have said "rather than a church style organization". Despite your previous disclaimers it seems that you did and are suggesting the absurd that Atheism could be considered a religion. In this I do not see why you are not using scare tactics to serve your agenda.
Just for fun :-)

"Atheist Academy" could just be a place to learn how to think in a world without god. I like the idea, at the begging of the post I thought the pic looked like the starfleet logo then I wondered if the creator of starfleet had the atheist in mined, seams to similar to be chance lol =) Seams to me thats there society is in pretty good shape. 1000 years from now I don't think it would be a big stretch.
I though it looked familar :)
Couldn't of said it better myself. Perfect. Thats all "coming together under one banner" would mean. This is the sign for not believing in gods. period. we have a word its called Atheism, we need a symbol to relate with our word. Thats all, you might as well be saying we don't need a word and non of us should even be talking on this site.
I agree completely Bryan.
