I Need A Logo For My Religious Growth...Please Help

I used to be able to say with true conviction that I was a Christian....I can't anymore.

I believe there is a God who functions as a creator. I believe that God has and will intervene in human existence. I believe God hears prayers. I believe in an afterlife.

That's all I can say with certainty.

I believe the bible, Christianity, Isalm, bla bla bla, is totally politicized and perverted and you can't trust it, but I can't bring myself to throw the baby out with the bathwater, so I've decided to pray to and worship an "Unknown" God and just ask for strength, peacefulness, maybe a little understanding and a reduced stress level.

Here's the deal. I need a logo for this God, something I can see, maybe get tattooed on myself somewhere. And don't give me any of this "no idols" bullshit. If genuflecting to a man nailed to a cross in every art media including black velvet is not idolatry I don't know what is. Just help me out here, all you talented A2Kers. Who Knows maybe if I get peaceful I'll stop talking about sex all the time.

You could always grab the symbol off an ecstasy tablet.

Bi, just look frequently at a picture of your family--proof enough, my friend.

I'm partial to Ganesh:

How cool would this be for a tattoo? (I might need to use it...)

Quote:
The Lord of Success
The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja.

Well then.

How about a mobius strip? That has a kind of eternal quality.

The element of reverence with a hint of scepticism, that I quite share with you.

Try using the image of the index finger pointing, to something up there, but not quite sure to what.

what do you consider godly? Sunset, lightning, a tree, a mountain, a baby.....? What feels religious to you?

Quest...confusion....longing for knowledge....helplessness...submission before the inevitable, immovable, and inscutable.
