Atheist Forums Holiday Logo 2016!
Luckie has created an assortment of holiday logos for the forum, and we would like the community to pick the one that we use. You can vote for more than one logo, and the logo with the most votes in the next 3 days will be used throughout the holiday season.

I chose 'C', since I couldn't find the logo with the baby on the rotisserie.

tough call, the gay palm trees are really charming, but I went with C

And BSB4; we did have one poaching in a thermal vent at Yellowstone, but it dissolved too much before I could get the shot set up, sorry
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

B is perfect.

The others fail either for a a lack of thematic relevance or for that writing "heathen's greetings". I find it politically incorrect, given this forum's promoted pluralism, as well as perhaps a bit too cheesy.


 

I like D a lot, minus the writing and the religious symbols, though not for the winter holidays.  Take the previously mentioned elements out, IMO, and you have a theme superior to the one currently occupying this rugged ship's flag.

Luckie, they are all great works despite those tiny flaws I found with them(for this purpose), kudos for them, and thank you for exhibiting your art for and in the use of this community. Great

One question, though, if I may. I'm curious about the phrase "heathen's greetings". Is this supposed to be reminiscent of the way in which some drinking establishments are  sometimes named, or is this phrase more literal - is a particular heathen being specified in that statement (if so, who)?

I like A and C. "Heathen's Greetings" gave me a chuckle
"When life begins, we are tender and weak.
When life ends, we are stiff and rigid.
All things, including the grass and the trees,
Are soft and pliable in life, dry and brittle in death.
So the soft and supple are the companions of life,
Whilst the stiff and unyielding are the companions of death.
An army that cannot yield will be defeated.
A tree that cannot bend will crack in the wind.
Thus, by nature's own decree,
The hard and strong are defeated,
Whilst the soft and gentle are triumphant."

Well it's a play on "Season's Greetings," but also an joke about how some religious people view atheists as heathens. So it's our ironic version of the holiday phrase.

Hehe, thanks. Cultural references like that always escape me.

I like the logos with the tree, but they do feel a bit too...umm...messy, there's too many things going on.

True that, at least the Tooth Fairy gives you something in return for your belief and sacrifical offerings. When was the last time god ever did anything for anyone?
