I am getting a collar tattoo and I need some ideas for what to get. My best idea is "Beware of Dogma", but I don't want it to seem like a warning that I have dogma, so I'm thinking I should go in a different direction. Please post your ideas for a 3-5 word atheist phrase, whether it be funny, sarcastic, abrasive, or a combination of those. Thanks for your help!!
I think that's too long, but I like it.
Perhaps instead of your original idea 'Beware of Dogma", you could go with " Free of Dogma" or "Free from Dogma". I myself have an atheist tattoo on my left inner arm, the greek word, "atheos" meaning without god/godless.
I do like "Free from Dogma", but it loses the pun made from "Beware of Dog". Not out of the question, though.
Since Latin always looks nice and lends an air of intellectualism, how about "Ratio imperat" - Reason rules.
That said, I'm not sure I conjugated that correctly. Maybe somebody out there who attended Catholic school longer than I did can check this for me.
According to Google Translator, it means, "system commands". Sometimes Translator is more accurate than others, so I have no idea. I have been translating a lot of these phrases to Latin, Greek, Dutch, Danish, German, and Swedish, just to see how they look...as well as to see if I can pronounce them if someone asks me what it says. :)
I always liked "No Gods no Masters"
I have "Hail nothing, praise no one" written on my wall.
Matt let us know what you decide and we need a pic of the finished product!
I definitely will. My appointment isn't until April 20th, so as soon as it's done, I will post a photo! I already plan to get the tattoo below, designed by Marc Poulin and edited by Peter. The string can be found here: http://www.thinkatheist.com/photo/new-atheist-symbol
This will be on the inside of my left forearm.
