I was just thinking...Atheists don't have an 'official' way to greet each other or their visitors or to use as a signature line.

I mean, the Jews have 'SHALOM', the Muslims have 'AS-SALAAMU ALAIKUM', even Hindus have 'AAPKA SWAAGAT HAI'.  Some of your hardcore Catholics might occasionally whip out the old 'PAX TECUM' or 'PAX VOBISCUM' on you.

What do we, humble Atheists have?  I mean "S'happenin' mofugga?!" only goes so far and is so impersonal.  I think we need a greeting/farewell phrase to proudly identify ourselves.  Maybe we can get some suggestions going and see if one of these greetings catches on.  The only requirement is that it be a single word, two at most, and preferably something that rolls off the tongue.  Oh yeah...and it should be totally nonsensical.  That's the most important thing.

Who will start us off?

Hey, don't be dissin' on that refined and civilized greeting, now. I personally think it would go far in keeping religious nutters far, far away from us.

On the other hand, I vote for "NEE." It's short, it's simple, and has the added benefit of conferring the ability to force others to get shrubberies for you.

You know, this might actually attract the type of people we don't really wish to associate with... :snork_lach:

We could kneel down and draw that pagan fertility fish symbol in the sand to identify ourselves. :snork_lach:

Good thought.  And only a pagan would be concerned about fertility in the first place.  All of the Abrahamic death cults are constantly going on about virginity, as if it were something to be aspired to, rather than the result of a regrettable lack of experience.

Fertility is a life positive trait, a very good thing.  Virginity is like having a bank account without a checkbook, it's all potential.

Remember the movie "Mars Attacks" where the martians made the "International sign of the donut" (drawing a circle in the air) as a greeting? That would be a good hello!
