  • From religioustolerance.com: "When American Atheists (AA) was founded in 1963, they chose the atomic symbol as seen in the center of the above graphic as their logo. The use of the atomic symbol flowed from their belief that human progress can best be achieved through the scientific method and rational, open inquiry."

    That symbol is the logo for American Atheists and that's their reasoning behind it. To me it doesn't mean much. I just see it is a play on the atomic symbol. I prefer the A symbol from Dawkin's site. I have it on my homepage.

  • That's going to be my next tattoo, except I'm going to replace the A in the middle, with Richard Dawkin's Scarlet A, so it represents both. I was also thinking about having the Humanist guy holding it up above him.

  • A is for Atheism and the design is an atom representing science.

  • Actually the A is for American. If you were British there would be a B in the middle, or Canadian a C, etc..
