So people at my office started wearing "Jesus Loves Me" lanyards, (those cloth necklacey badge holder things). I obviously got permission to wear an Atheist one.

Unfortunately I can't find one so I have to custom make one.

I need a good, short quote BUT here's the kicker. It CAN be pro-atheism but it can not be overtly anti religion general or specific.

So far I've got as thoughts:

"I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day."
and
"I'm an atheist for the same reason I'm an afairyist"

Hit me with your suggestions ;)

Both of these are pretty good
# Ethical without superstition
# Descended from apes, and happy to know it

Thanks all, I appreciate it. I'm trying to find something that espouses atheism without knocking other religions which has been difficult. I'm tempted to go wtih:

ATHEISM: "Star dust contemplating star dust"~ Carl Sagan

It gets the materialistic idea across, is beautifully encompassing yet brief, and doesn't cause discord or attack other religious views.

Here's a few that I can come up with.

  • Ethical without superstition
  • Descended from apes, and happy to know it
  • Curious, not credulous
  • Where's the evidence?

A cat may go to a monastery, but she still remains a cat!

Short answer: I really can't.
Slightly longer answer: I'm a known atheist therefore my religious views are federally protected. Since it's known I do NOT in fact worship Thor that would be much more dicey.

Or - if you'd like a shorter message why not be sarcastic and say "Thor Loves Me" or something along those lines? :-)

I was thinking bertrand russell actually but I'm trying to ride the fine line between offensive and "IMPACT".

As to "I love myself" It more says "I like playing with my genitalia" than "I'm an atheist".
