I didn’t see it in the online version of the story, but the paper version mentioned that the military currently permits a humanist symbol (a figure reaching up) and an atheist symbol (an atom!)

That was the first I had heard of those symbols.  Anybody else?

A figure reaching up ... to what?

I’d heard about the atom.

I guess he or she’s sort of reaching up to make an H:


 

And yes, it looks like American Atheists have a sort of atom that makes an A.

I’m agnostic about what symbol agnostics might have. :wink:

That’s the symbol of the American Humanist Association. 

I always thought the figure had just tossed a basketball.  LOL
