Babies with morals

Posted on October 9, 2011 at 8:00am 2 Comments

This article discusses research done that shows babies as young as 15 months old demonstrate knowledge of right and wrong, specifically when it comes to sharing. Now I doubt it's because their parents bring them to church or read the bible to them. I know from experience, what you teach a baby around the 1 year mark is walking and taking, image…

Fibonacci Sequence

Posted on October 8, 2011 at 7:42am 3 Comments

Hey gang,

I was looking at some science tattoos, and one was of 'The Golden Spiral' which depicts the Fibonacci sequence in graphic form. I then decided to look at videos on YouTube about this formula, and came upon this fantastic and beautiful video explaining it. Now I see this 'sequence'  as a way of nature to develop in the most efficient way possible, maximizing the energy of the sun,…

Hello, Mark. I have a question about your atheist logos that I'd like to ask you about. Please accept my request so that I can send you a message.

At 5:16pm on December 14, 2013, Kenny Wyland said…

Hi Marc,

I used your fantastic A logo within a logo design for my own website. I credited you, as you requested, here: http://liberalgeek.com/content/liberal-geek-logo-information

I have a CafePress store where I try to sell various Atheist or Skeptic shirts and I wanted to toss my Liberal Geek logo up there, but you requested that your logo not be sold. I wanted to ask you if it would be ok with you if I sell shirts with my Liberal Geek logo even though it includes your Atheist A logo. It's just a small part of my Liberal Geek logo, but I don't want to use your artwork in ways that you don't want it used. 

Let me know what you think. Thanks!

You caught me before I could send you a proper message! Thank you for the beautiful design. I plan to give you credit whenever someone asks about it. I'm extremely proud :)

Thanks for the add Marc. It will be my first tattoo !! Decided I must get one before the big 50 (in a few years). However I am an outspoken Atheist and with it I can talk about Atheism, Physics and our little blue dot. I will post a photo soon.
