Dang,

I liked the bees.

 

My vote is for something fresh. Not a symbol that is the same as the other groups. Here are some more photos. Hopefully someone can capitalize on a theme here.

 

Something political?

This could work with a few changes…… to some extent

Of course there could be a spacey look with text?

TV head?

Tin foil hats?

We could use pigs flying in some sort of way?

I am not an artist, but I do this type stuff. If we want, I could make us a poster. It would take me a month. (I work a lot)

 

This is called the price of success

Everyone! I am a graphic artist, or at least my job tells me so, I'm really not so sure yet. But I will definitely work on something within the next couple days. And please, feel free to continue to make suggestions!! Just maybe no more bee attacks.

I joined the group; haven't been to a meeting yet, for one reason or another, but have thoroughly enjoyed reading the dialogue between you guys....and no, don't have anything more enlightening to add to the discussion as of yet, but that could change! keep on including me in the conversation!
I AM an artist, maybe someone knew that which is why I am getting the beckons for a graphic artist to do the Logo for this group?  Sounds as if you have a concept already.

John, (may I call you John?)

 

Sure I believe in God. Not like the biblical God, but in a way that comforts me.

 

The truth is we don?t have an adequate explanation for the origin of the universe. I mean by that we invent other realities, brames, and imagine them bumping together to create our reality, a new brame. All this accomplishes is to push our creation point down the line, to some other area that we can never investigate.

 

Now it is true God could be some kid running a science fair experiment that we are all part of. Or God could be whatever I imagined him to be. Or he could be any of the things that are listed such as the tooth fairy with an experimental bent. But I prefer to perceive God in a way that gives me comfort. I also prefer to view science as the process in which God, the tooth fairy or the kid in a science class created this reality in which we live.

 

 

So I chose to believe. I chose because it is more comforting to believe. It?s not that I don?t know that the possibility equally exists that there isn?t one or that if there is one has just as much a chance of being evil as good.

 

Since there is no way to conclusively prove that there is a supreme being just as there is no way to prove there is one both are equally skeptic.

 

Being a scientist I am skeptical about everything, especially things that I know. (It is funny how many things I have know that turned out to be wrong during just my lifetime much less during recorded history.)

 

As far as religions go I find them very interesting. They are a great part of human history, record our early attempts at science, and some of our largest advances in philosophy.

 

Also, your point mocking of my views is well received.  I look forward to your exact explanation as to how everything has happened in this universe. If you believe that what you say is true well then perhaps you should keep the items!

 

You see if I took your definition to heart then we could all truly know nothing and be unable to meet for beers.

 

Is belief in something based on evidence that eventually turns out to have been based anymore noble? I think not. Some of mans greatest concepts/scientific principals have come in the absence of any as you say evidence. They came from the mind. Read Aquinces work on how many angles can sit on the head of a pin and then compare that to Quantum mechanics. The similarities are remarkable. It is amazing that different intelligent folks could reach the same conclusions when it comes to separate forms of energy existing in the same place and time.

 

By the way, or hold no belief, you are obviously a skeptic..   or hold no belief, you are an Atheist.

 

Wow, you got me there!

 

Cheers,

Just a question, Mr.Wilson,



Do you believe in God? In Biblical God or just some god, like The Force? Old or New Testament? Hinduism? Reincarnation? Ouija boards? John Edwards? Big Foot? The Tooth Fairy?

If you either actively disbelieve in these or hold no belief, you are obviously a skeptic. But if you disbelieve or hold no belief, including holding an agnostic point of view, in the deities mentioned, you are an Atheist.

If you say you are a "skeptic" but that you accept claims of the supernatural without evidence... well, then I have a lovely set of Kevin Truedeau books I'd love to sell you as well as several vials of the blood of Christ I obtained from a blind rabbi in Jerusalem. You can have whole lot if you pick up my tab the next time the group holds a Skeptics in the Pub.

Thanks for the clarification,

John-Paul Mitchell

I'm CC'ing Keith McCaffety, founding genius of the late and sorely missed Houston Atheist Society.  He's a graphic artist and had a good, simple logo (lightning bolt coming out of a brain).  I don't seem to have a copy of it in my old e-mail files.  And, I don't know whether Keith had copyrighted it.  Maybe he can send a sample if he's agreeable to making it available.
Peace

I've been asked a couple times about having a logo for the Houston Skeptics group, to put on other skeptic websites. I am woefully uncreative in this regard.

If anyone has an artistic bent and would like to submit a possible logo, we'd appreciate it it. It would need to be fairly simple and clean-lined, no small or complicated details. (Think Exxon logo). A friend sent me an alien flying in a space ship around the city of Houston - it was too detailed and would not reproduce well, especially when shrunk down for brochures.
