I personally would keep the ".org" but perhaps we could take it more to the background. Your other adjustments are great. I changed my original files accordingly (click here for demo).

The symbol in A and B looks a bit like a stylized human laying down. How would it be to stand it up? My favorite is C. I'm not sure what it symbolizes, but it looks very nice.

Mine too. Particle collisions, perhaps?

I like C the best as well. To me it looks like a 'joy' dance. :smile: :dance:

I'd go with C too, looks like a stylised RS collision to me! :thumbup:

I'd keep the '.org', too. That way potential new members don't even have to look us up. Also, it'd help avoid confusion with www.rationalskepticism.com. :mrgreen:

C is a combination of art and science. It was inspired by Alexander Calder and the reading Tyson's Death by Black Hole. Calder created whimsical mobiles and I combined that with the eliptical orbit of planets.

the Giraffe conceit is also cool in a different manner... :clap: with wood and skin contrasting the harder edge aspect.

Missed that one...yeah very nice illumination and transparency tho won't do much on a mug or t-shirt.
The speed is better as well..
It could be extended to a great banner - superb work Emerg.

You see, the icon is so strong you can even play with it! :clap: :clap: Personally, I'd like to see a paisley and daisy, hippy special with peace signs. :lol:

Now that you mention it, it does resemble a particle jet.
