Sort of tangetally related, but a while back when I was looking at different funeral markers for my father's military funeral at the local National Cemetery, they had little icons for every religion under the sun for engraving. The mark for the athiest was a stylized Atom, which I thought looked neat. I was a little disappointed they didn't have a guy shrugging for agnostic.
