Note: as Wehpudicabok mentioned Andy did NOT write this. It was a user by the name of 'Conservative'. Not all the shit on conservapedia is written by Andy himself (whether that's a good or bad thing I'll let the reader decide).

Hmmm...OK...I'm white, married, not socially challenged. Maybe a nerd. But a woman. And I happen to have quite a nice, full life, thank you very much.

Andy and "Conservative": why don't YOU two get a life and meet some real atheists? You might be surprised at who we are. You might even (gasp!) meet them in your daily lives!

Not Today

White - check
Unmarried - wrong
Socially challenged - Maybe just a little bit :)
Nerd - Absolutely, and proud of it!
Atheist - Close, but haven't quite crossed the bridge from agnostic to atheist.

Oddly, I would consider one of the nerdier things you can do - not that there's anything wrong with that - is to setup a wiki and post random crap that nobody outside of your group cares about. And I'm pretty sure that Andy is a white married guy. Setting up the wiki puts him squarely in the nerd category. Don't know about his social skills, but I have my suspicions.

And the Shatner skit is one of the funniest things that SNL has ever done. It's up there with the Martin Short male synchronized swimming skit.

Oh, drat. I'm not in the "cool kids" group. I shall go cry my wittle eyes out now.

Listen up, fucknut. Nobody gives a damn. At least I don't. This isn't a popularity contest and it isn't high school either. You want me to be part of your little cult? Present some evidence that you're right or shut the fuck up. No, not your Wholly Babble. Real evidence. The kind that's testable, verifiable and non-contradictory.

"The largely white and male crowd — imagine a Star Trek convention, but older..."

Doesn't sound unlike a tea party

Attention Andy Schlafly: Please get a life!

More evidence that Andy quite is white, married but incapable of letting certain others marry, a socially challenged nerd! A Schlafly meeting was organized in the United States concerning the future direction of the Schlaflyist movement and only Andy and Phyllis attended. The New York Times described the attendees as "The all white, male/female couple — imagine a Star Trek convention, but older... and smaller"[1] For more information, please see Schlaflyism, which appears to be significantly less appealing to men and women of mental discrimination.

Schlaflyists, please consider the advice that William Shatner gave to Trekkies in a comedy skit: Get a life!

Um, we could substitute a word here, and with minor modification make a similar (and equally stupid) point:

"Attention ASTRONAUTS: Please get a life!
More evidence that ASTRONAUTS quite often tend to be white! An ASTRONAUTS' meeting was organized in the United States concerning the future direction of the ASRONAUT movement and a few hundred people attended. The New York Times described the attendees as "The largely white and male crowd — imagine a Star Trek convention, but older..."[1]

YIKES, Xotan beat me to it. Sorry about that, I didn't read to the end of the thread before posting.

Most atheists I know, or have even heard of, purposely live a full and meaningful life because they realize it's the only life they'll ever have.

Most fundies restrict their thinking and activities, disparage human nature, and view the only life they will ever have as a burden to be gotten through until they can start their real life in a mythical heaven.

Tell us again WHO needs to get a life.

Look who needs a life!

Is there an atheist movement, at all? There's not much to do after you say "I find no evidence for the existence of any gods", really.
As only 370 people attended, it seems most atheists already have a life, which felt more important than the future direction of non-belief.

Do hairdressers meet and discuss the options of baldness, too?

"...white, unmarried, socially challenged nerds!"

And the problem is...what? That's all I've ever dated. I'm dating one of those guys now, and I love him so much that we might take care of that "unmarried" part sooner or later.

Let's hear it for the nerds!

"The largely white and male crowd — imagine a Star Trek convention, but older..."

Sounds like the College of Cardinals to me. The costumes might be a bit more effeminate though, and no one at a Star Trek convention would prefer the red tunic.

Um Andy dear,
You do realize that when Shatner said "Get a life" it was in a fucking comedy skit on SNL? Right?
You know, he was reading a from a script on a sketch comedy show, not expressing his actual opinion.

What a maroon.

I'm a teenager.
And a girl.
And an atheist.

I don't exist!

Woo-hoo! My quote submission has finally been accepted! And it already got sixty-four comments!

Celebration aside, Schlafly's stereotyping is just not true. I'm sure all you commenters can find dozens of counterexamples.

@ Wehpudicabok and others:

Whoops! Sorry about that. I couldn't see the byline on Conservapedia (and was linked to the page from Schlafly's quotes) so I assumed it was by him. Can we change the attribution on FSTDT?

I'm subbed to some of the hottest female youtubers, and they happen to be atheists as well....

Around here 370 people isn't even all the atheists you could find in a 10 minute walk.

I'm a married female atheist. I think it's strange that he thinks atheism isn't appealing to women. There is no atheist holy book that states women, by default, are 2nd class citizens.

Andy, you are a nerdy white male who believes a book of fairy tales is a science text. Get a life!

Strangely enough, "the largely white and male crowd -- imagine a Star Trek convention, but older" could also describe a Tea Party, and I don't see Conservapedophiles telling THEM to get lives...

I kind of find it ironic that he quotes Bill Shatner, a well known atheist in this.

I admit to the white part. But I am married with a rockin' social life.

Yeah, because you're a real winner yourself. Aren't you Andy.

A person who spends his time redefining a holy book because he finds the original "too liberal" as well as writing another pile of lies and calling it an "encyclopedia". Yeah, who's the one without a life here?

I'm trying to find his point, I'm sure it must be buried somewhere in there.
