An unofficial question: if Agnostic.com had a mascot who or what should it be?

Would it be a famous person?
Perhaps, an animal?
An object? A statue? A flag?
Fictional or not?

What do you think?

The Thinker by Rodin: It was originally designed for "The Gate of Hell" by Dante; however, it became famous as a stand-alone sculpture. It is a very moving piece of sculpture, and I was spellbound when I saw it. To me, it symbolizes the way we (agnostics/atheists) came to realize the truth.

Or a Calvin and Hobbes comic.

Excellent choice! Hits the mark, definitely. I've seen two of them (Paris and Stanford), I should have checked out the Philly one.

One of Rodin's original castings of "The Thinker," owned by Gerald Cantor, a former employer of mine, went down with the North Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11 along with something like 900 Cantor-Fitzgerald employees. The sculpture's head was recovered but disappeared mysteriously soon after. I like the idea of the sculpture being a logo or "mascot" for the site but it may be trade marked.

I'd vote for a winged unicorn with colorful smoke emanating from its butt, but that's just me.

I was actually thinking of that car shopping commercial with the custom van being traded in...we're on the same page though! Want some sparkly rainbow ice cream?

I vote for @silvereyes. 😉

That's okay, @silvereyes, because nothing exists outside my mind. And nothing exists outside yours. Each of us is a bubble of unverifiable perceptions. Every sight, sound, touch, smell, taste… every pleasure and every pain… it all takes place in the mind, and we can never see the minds of one another. And none of us can ever be certain anything at all exists outside ourselves. Each of us, whether we know it or not, is the embodiment of solipsism. And so my experience of you, indeed, resides in my mind and is for all intents and purposes a product of my imagination.

An ape.

How about a platypus?

I don't know what it should be but I know what it should be doing. It should be holding something simple, a rock, a seed, a flower and it should be looking into it deeply as if it's seeing it for the first time.
