I also want to point out that you don't need any particular major in order to get into law school, just good grades. After I finish my BA this spring I'll be just as qualified to enter law school as anybody else with a similar GPA.

Hi people! I was very new at the old place just as it moved; so now I am very old at the new place.

I suppose it would be quickest to just copy-and-paste my intro in the LGBT Thread:

I was invited to FSTDT forums a few days ago by gyeonghwa after something I posted elsewhere. Thanks, friend!  ;D

I am an almost asexual, autistic gay male brain with a (mostly) female body. Married for 32 years to a straight Aspie guy (IT geek and chess nerd) who appears gay. We met in 1979 through our mutual love of motorcycles. I used to reckon he only married me because I was a non-drinker who could ferry him home from the pub on the back of my motorcycle and fix it if it broke down on the way.  ;)

Mother to five, 1 daughter, 4 sons. Grandmother to eight (four biological grandsons and their four half-brothers/sister) and (it sometimes seems) half the denizens of the internet (the cool half, of course 8) ).

Came to Australia for six months in February 2005 and got stuck. Health issues mean I'm probably stuck here for life.

The photo in my sig was taken in 2001 on the West Coast of Ireland (home is in County Cork) and the bike is my 1988 GL1500 GoldWing, nicknamed Tigger (hence my username).

That bit of silliness aside, I am Rookie. I am a straight white married father of four and a half kids. There is much more about me, but I'm not sure what all is relevant. So, um, hello again all my old friends and I look forward to our newbies becoming our new friends.

This is my third incarnation on the FSTDT forums.

- High school kicked-out, currently self-educating.
- Kinda stupid (see first entry.)
- Artist.
- Love music: Prog, Goth, Glam, Hard Rock, Industrial, oldschool Heavy Metal.
- Love animals.
- Aspie.
- Agnostic-leaning atheist.  Very anti-scripture.

'Ello, I'm Randomwolf42! Not sure what to say... well I'm Canadian, gay, an atheist (mostly, I have my "I don't know what I believe" moments), and deaf in my right ear. I've made a single comment on the old forum (reporting spam, I think) and I'm generally bad at forums. There's only one I regularly visit and it's deader than Marley's ghost. I'm an avid reader and an aspiring writer, by which I mean I have some stories floating around my hard drive that I won't let anyone read, and despite this post, I do know how paragraphs and sentence structure work. (Forgive me, I'm tired.)

What else... oh, I like to think I subvert the "wolf rule" that I've read about where anyone with "wolf" in their username is either a complete ass or crazy. Well, maybe I'm crazy, but it's a harmless, fun kind of crazy.

I've been reading the quotes list for a while, I first came across it researching religious stances on homosexuality for an ethics assignment, and I've been dipping in and out ever since.

Anways. I'm 18, English, and a university student. Politically, I reckon I probably fall somewhere in the centre. I'm pretty much an atheist, having pretty much abandoned religion a few years back. Guitar player. Generally into most rock and metal, with a preference for pre-90s stuff. First found FSTDT thanks to some links on another forum in a thread about general religious fuckwittery.

I don't have much to say except...uh...nice to meet you guys and/or gals. ;D

That is all. :P

Hello!  I actually had an account on the old forums under a different name (I'm not saying what it was....I like being mysterious  ;)).  I stopped coming for some reason, than I checked back recently and found everything completely different.  Oh well.  Nice the meet you, people I am already somewhat familiar with. ;D

Alright so I guess this is the place where I should have posted my introduction in the first place, I'm off to a great start following the rules already... ???

So, uh, hi?  :o

I'm not technically a total 'newbie' to FSTDT, but I don't need to get into that again...this time around I'm looking forward to actually getting to know some of the unique and interesting characters that I know this place attracts...

Not too much really to say about me...I'm a 21-year-old bi male from New York, currently in my senior year of college in Massachusetts. Formerly Catholic... depending on the day you ask, I'd describe my current view on religion as either agnostic, atheist, or just apatheist...I do have a tendency to be somewhat awkward at times, but, um, yeah... peace.  :)

im an idiot, i posted this on the old board a few min. ago... pardon my stupid


hi, im speshuled, i grew up in a fundamentalist church and it wasn't until i was 18-ish that i just kind of gave up trying to convince myself of the existence of god.

politically i lean left, kinda far too. lately ive noticed how extreme the extremists are getting in america, and it fascinates me. i dont know if im just noticing more, or if they are actually going more and more publicly insane.

im looking forward to joining in some discussion with rational people about the state of affairs in the world. hopefully i can learn something, which is my favorite hobby.

As I recall, he's quite open to discussion, isn't rude, and doesn't dodge points or direct questions. I actually quite enjoyed debating with him, and never disliked him as a person. Assuming I'm not mixing people up here, I think he even admitted that something I'd said got him to reconsider some of his views on the legality of gay marriage, even if he still opposed it on a personal level, which was something I really respected about him -- few people will admit that kind of thing. I'll see if I can find the thread, though I can't guarantee that I won't be lazy and give up ten seconds after submitting this post. ;)

Hello, everyone!  I've been meaning to register here for a whole now and just got around to doing so.

Many of you know me from my comments on the main quotes page from FSTDT but here's some more about me.  I just turned 40 last month, have been married for nearly nine years and have two kids, ages 7 and 5.  I've been an atheist by and large since my bar mitzvah and was labelled an antisemitic Jew in my 20s because I had the audacity to criticize the policies of the state of Israel.  My user name, for those of you who might wonder, is the Russian word for asshole.

So … Hi everyone!
Title: Re: The Newbie Thread

Hey, everyone. I don't exactly know how I will go about this, but I figure if I'm going to be on this forum, I might as well introduce myself. I've lurked the FSTDT forums for quite some time. I remember the old board, though not very well, and I had an account there, but I posted there literally only about three times. I had a different username too, so I expect no one to recognize me. That's perfectly fine with me though, I decided to join again so that I could get a fresh start somewhere. I haven't frequented a forum in years, so this is almost like a new experience.

... Bleh, what do I talk about? I've been an atheist for three years, I used to check the main page and Youtube comments sections of atheist and Christian videos, though I stopped doing that years ago. I've never been adamant about my atheism in real life either, tt's just not my thing. My reasons for finally registering are a little complicated, nothing to delve into here.

So... hey.

child!

FSTDT! Realizing this forum came into existence so as to give punks, drop-outs and bullies a kindred space, is it any wonder so many on the net laugh at you all because post after post you demonstrate "Fucked up Shit Tards, Deviants and Trolls say!"

Hello, everyone.

I've been lurking this site and its forums for a while. I decided that if I want to hang around here, then why shouldn't I join?

I'm pretty much the black sheep in my family. I am a liberal/progressive/green/social-democrat in a family of hot-blooded conservatives (back in 2000 when there was the election between Al Gore and George W. Bush, when my mother voted for Al Gore, my family treated her like she was from another planet!). I am also a Christian turned Agnostic turned Atheist (I am, however, still in the closet, as I sometimes get flak for being so different. Good thing my family loves me unconditionally). I share an extreme disdain for religious/political/economic fundamentalists/fanatics, and because of that, I'm so happy to see there is a site that snark on some of the craziest quotes from these awful, just plain pathetic people from all over the internet.

I also share a love for lesser known video games.

I'm a transwoman otaku super-liberal almost-pacifist who loves games and anime and tend to develop an encyclopedic memory of anything I enjoy.
Interesting, a transwoman on this forum.

Anyway, welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your stay.

I'm new to the forum, but I mostly post comments on fundie quotes from the site. As of writing, I haven't modified my profile because I'm not sure if I'll stay on this part of the site.

Anyway, I'm another Christian member who hates fundamentalists with the rest of them. I also spend some time bashing racists and conspiracy theorists (especially the latter, since they're usually funnier and the former is always incredibly mean.) And other than that, I might stay to discuss stuff with people.

Howdy howdy howdy everybody.  I'm Mech610, feel free to just call me Mech, though I also go by the nickname Dire or my real name which is Noah.

Let's see, where to begin?  Well, I've been a member and commenter on the main site for probably about 5 years now but I've been a lurker for at least 2 or 3 years longer then that.  Today I decided I should probably join and start posting in the forums, so here I am!

Now, about me.  I'm 23 years old currently pursuing my undergrad degree in fiction writing at Columbia College of Chicago ((Any other Columbians around feel free to PM me!)), afterwards I plan to get certified as a teacher or join the Peace Corps for 2 years before going to grad school to pursue a doctorate in Mythology and/or History and I hope to become a professor on one or both of those subjects.  I'm a huge history and mythology nerd you see.

Politically I'm very far left and I label myself a Democratic Socialist.  I'm not an Atheist like so many of my fellows here.  I'm a Pantheist which is the belief that the universe is a living thing that is unaware of our existence.  From what I understand Carl Sagan held a similar belief, essentially it's applying a spiritual aspect to science.  I was raised Jewish however.

I'm an Otaku, I play Japanese RPGs regularly, watch anime, read manga, attend cons ((Where I like to collect swag)).  I'm a big gamer and sci-fi/fantasy nerd.  I have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Elder Scrolls universe ((I've played every main series game since Arena)).  I'm a big Joss Whedon fan.  I enjoy watching Law and Order and NCIS pn occasion.  My favorite TV show ever is the remade Battlestar Galactica.  I got into the webcomic Homestuck back in October ((If you couldn't tell from my avatar)) and while I enjoy it a great deal I'm proud to say I'm not one of it's OMFGCRAZYGONUTS fans writing fanfiction and making up an OC and what not.  I previously read the author's other work Problem Sleuth and watched his Star Trek Next Generation edits.  Oh yeah, and I like Star Trek.

I enjoy hiking and urban exploration and recently took up boxing ((Much to the girlfriend's chagrin))...I kinda suck at it.  I also obviously enjoy talking...A lot.  Sorry about that.

Oh and I like long walks on the beach and quiet dinners at home.

I haven't decided what board to lurk in yet but I'm sure that'll come to me soon.

Hi guys! I'm RinellaWasHere, but I'll answer to Rin, Rinella, RWH, or David. Whatever you want, really. Just not Dave. Never Dave.

I live in Portland, Oregon, and I'm an English and Education major at the University of Portland. I'm a writer, actor, and rap musician. I write science fiction and fantasy, as well as various fan fiction when the mood strikes me. I don't watch much TV, but I love me some Game of Thrones, Dr. Who, Firefly, and My Little Pony. I play tons of video games- mostly RPGs and action games, but my main criteria for choosing games is the strength of the story.

As for faith and politics, I'm a diehard liberal and a Catholic. I believe in God, but I refuse to believe in some asshole version who cares about the what (sexual orientation, race, religion), since I think all that matters is the who (are you a good person?). I've got no problem with any faith or lack thereof, sexual orientation, gender, or race, or any other qualifier. As long as you're a good person, it doesn't matter at all.

Despite my Italian last name, I'm of Scottish and Irish descent- I'm adopted. I wear a kilt pretty much all the time, and I will not tell you what's under it, so don't ask. I'm also autistic- I've got Aspergers Syndrome. If I ever act like a douche, that's probably part of the reason, and I'm sorry. Call me out on it when it happens: Aspergers is an explanation, not an excuse, and I'll be happy to apologize again.

It's good to finally be part of the FSTDT forums. I love you guys already.

Welcome.

There are a couple of people here in this community who are religious (I'm not one of them anymore). There are also a couple of fans of really geeky interests (I partake in several of those interests you're in as well). You will find a few people with autism/aspergers here (I've never mentioned this to anyone, but I too am autistic, and I'm afraid to mention it because I don't want to become a punching bag in some communities).

Also pretty late, but welcome to the forums, Imp and Mach. I was a lurker of this site as well before I've joined in.

Hello everyone!

I'm new, and my name is Hayley. I joined to talk, chat, converse and verbalise. I used to be part of the Richard Dawkins forum before it shut down, and I miss it, and think this is a good substitute. I wasn't an amazing contributor there or anything, my education level is sadly lacking compared to the majority of members who posted there, but the education I do have is generally enough for me.

I'm in training to become a counsellor, and am a massive information hog. What can I say, I have three book lists  :P

What else? I'm an atheist. And that... is about it, really.

I was on the old board and never bothered to create a new account until recently, but here I am now.

I'm a Political Science grad student (undergrad was American History and Political Science) and a Social Studies teacher and administrator at a school for gifted kids.  This means that I will probably disappear during the school year, because I tend to push 70-90 hours of work per week between the two.  I'm also a straight, married, atheistic Social Democrat.

I've been lurking around here as well for some time, mainly getting a laugh out of comments from racist websites. I even submitted one of my own. I usually find these sites offensive and tasteless, but I'm now glad I've found a site where I can laugh at them with others. I don't expect to be posting around here much since I also have accounts on Pixar Planet, GTAForums and YouTube of course. Everyone here seems pretty cool though, and the quotes people post here are a good laugh. I hope to stick around.

So, Things:

Heathen. Hail Odin and pass the mead.
Furry. More just general interest in monster people and stuff, but furries are awesome and weird.
Moderate (i guess). Leaning fiscal conservative, social liberal/progressive.
Aspergers. among probably other stuff.
Bisexual. woo.
And as previously stated, Homestuck. Knight of Heart, ftw.

But now I'm interested in politics and things again, so I thought I'd check this forum out! I need people to talk about these topics with, but my internet life is stationed on Tumblr, which is the absolute WORST place for discussion on things that aren't fandom-related. I browsed the forums for a bit to see if you guys didn't become a clone of Reddit, and I'm happy to see that hasn't happened. So hi! I probably remember none of you but whatever.

I'm a female. I don't really know my gender though... It swaps around from girl to virtually transgender, a mix of both boy and girl, and entirely gender-less. I'm sorry I don't know the name of that "gender". I'm also a pansexual.

It's called "karma" on some boards. Basically, if you like something someone said, you can click on "Fuck yeah," which gives them a positive point, or if you don't like something they say, you can click "Fuck no," and give them a negative point.

We don't take it very seriously though.

I'm new here too, and I like this site. I forget how I found this site... all I know is I was on the Philosophy Forum one moment then the next I was in FSTDT. The Leviathan in the bathtub was the first thing I saw, and it was a laugh riot. I knew a few people years ago who used to post some kickass "Poe" stuff on other sites only for the sake of humor - none of them were fundies or politically one-dimensional - I could not hold a candle to them although I tried my best to contribute.

So, hey. I first found FSTDT a few years back, and it was crazy-scary how much some of these quotes sounded like my fundie father in law. I wound up becoming a lurker for sheer rubbernecking value.

I'm bi, married, a parent, agnostic since the crash & burn of my belief system, and forever a nerd. I'm also a huge Mass effect geek. Seriously, it's probably not healthy. Just ask my Garrus figurine who speaks to me telepathically in Brandon Keener's voice when I'm having a bad day*, or the ME-themed shirts hanging in my closet....though it's nice in a way, because when I'm feeling nervous or insecure, I can pull on my big-girl N7 unders and ask myself, "What would Commander Shepard do?" The answer is usually some variation of "Kick some ass!" To which I usually say "(meep!) okay...."

I am also enthused to see the Shepard in the flesh (sorta) right here on the boards! lolz.

Anyway, I also have ADD and severe social awkwardness. The Internet is a fairly good medium for me because I can sit and write things out and revise (if I don't get in too much of an excited hurry) instead of running at the mouth in a nervous frenzy. I'm also pleased at the general atmosphere of this place, if I do say so myself, and I think I'm planning on settling in. :)

I live in New Mexico. I've been an atheist for about seven years (I was originally brought up as a Jehovah's Witness and it's been a slow de-fundie-ing from there). I believe the universe and everything in it can exist just fine on its own and it doesn't need a superior "creator". Politically I lean toward pinko-commie.

Hello, fellow FSTDTers! ^^ I have lurked on the site for a long time, and it is good to sign up properly!

I'm an Aussie and I'm pretty big girl-nerd! I love fiction - fantasy and sci-fi in particular. I devour books, videogames, movies and TV shows, and I absolutely love dramatic trailer-style music. Some of my favourite fictional works are Pokemon, The Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, The Elder Scrolls, Star Trek and others.

I am also a writer! I have not published anything yet, but I am writing a fantasy novel with my mother and I plan to write at least two other books by myself. I am almost entirely self-taught, but I hope to increase my skills! I find that my greatest strength in writing is inventing creative settings.

I am also an avowed transhumanist, and transhumanism has dramatically changed my view of the future of humanity, technology and capabilities of both. It has also altered my morals, and I am the first to admit that quite a few of my moral beliefs are...non-standard. As an example, I am of the opinion that all people should have a fundamental right to free or very cheap access to transhumanist technologies.

Haha, I see where you're coming from! However, I still love Doctor Who despite its generally anti-transhumanist themes. I certainly enjoy its many characters, settings, plots and unique universe.

Nice to meet you Indikins. Regarding dramatic trailer music, I have a whole playlist devoted to epicly dramatic music, mostly from movie scores.

So do I! I have dozens of dramatic songs for inspiration and to keep my spirits up. My favourites artists are Two Steps From Hell, Jo Blankenburg and Erik Ekholm. I find this music very calming and uplifting.

Guess who didn't see this until he already made over a dozen posts?

Well, my name's Cody. I'm 20 (turning 21 in May) and I'm a professional actor from the Central Florida area. I've only acted as an extra so far, but I have indeed been paid for my work and I've managed to get an IMDB page. I'll list my current resume of noticeable appearances, just so that I can link back to this post if I ever get asked about it again.

* Rockabilly Zombie Weekend, a sort of modern B-movie about zombies attacking Central Florida during a rockabilly-themed wedding of a redneck couple (and from what I've seen of the film so far, the director's statement of "$2 million movie on a $500,000 budget" is accurate). I performed as four different characters, changing my appearance each time to the point of shaving my head into a mohawk, and I was present for 1/4 of the primary photography. I also did ADR (recording many zombie noises and crowd cheering), participated in the photo shoot for the poster, and had a minor appearance in a music video for an original song written for the film.

* Shadowglade, currently a pilot for a sort of supernatural crime show (think Supernatural crossed with CSI). I played a nameless cafe patron, but it was enough to get me IMDB credit.

* Game On, a Disney sitcom set to air in Europe starting in February. I played Jack, one of the employees of the game company where the show takes place. No lines, but I'm in almost every episode and have some major interactions with the main characters.

* Punisher: Outbreak, a web video showcasing a fictional trailer for a "Punisher and Nick Fury fight zombies" film. I played one of the zombies in the forest scene and performed several stunt falls, and a screencap of my death is currently my Facebook cover photo.

I also participated as a scareactor at Halloween Horror Nights 22, with my horde (the Beasts) winning Street of the Year for the whole event. Mix that with the half-dozen high school plays I've done and a pair of crowd scenes in Renee with Kat Dennings and Chad Michael Murray, and I've amassed a sizable amount of experience.

I'm primarily a Democrat liberal, but gun rights are a subject that I remain staunchly supportive of and I'm very much against the Assault Weapons Ban. I'm the proud owner of a 1938 Mosin-Nagant 91/30, complete with bayonet. I'm also an avid gamer and occasional writer.

Yeah, poeticmind0189 is new (as you know).  Everything she said is accurate.  Um...what was I going to say again?  Oh yeah.  She had to finish some chores, which is why I took over the typing.  Now I just did the typing.  She pretty much told me what she wanted to add.

Ironbite scolded me for making a 'Which clique of fundies pisses you off the most?' thread without introducing myself here first, so here I am.

Not a lot to say that I didn't already say in that thread. I've been reading FSTDT sporadically for years, but only started commenting regularly a few months ago, and created a forum account only a few days ago.

I'm particularly irritated by MRAs.

On Rationalwiki, I use the username Fastzander, and have written a handful of articles about the manosphere for it.

Howdy, y'all.

A friend of mine referred me to these forums because they said it'd probably be a nice place to communicate every now and then. I've only really been a part of two forums online (one being webcomic related, the other being... well, I don't really know how to describe it). My friend's not actually a part of these forums, but they said I'd fit in. Since I just joined and all, I'm not entirely too sure what the forum is centered around, but it sure does look interesting. I'm a pretty big fan of all the topics here, and I'm so glad there's an entire board devoted to science and technology (science major looking possibly at a degree in either biochemistry, microbiology, biology, or neuroscience if I manage to make it look like I wasn't an underprivileged slacker in high school). Since a few other people seem to be stating this for themselves, I might as well say that I'm an agnostic bisexual independent leaning left. Actually, I think it's safer to say that I'll vote Democratic/Green no matter what because the right really lost me after 2012 (the first election I could really take part in). I'm also very keen on furry art, but I'm not one of the guys that sexualizes it, and frankly the thought of that alone makes me shudder. Oh, and I live in Texas (as if my avatar didn't already say that).

So yeah, with all that said, I hope I don't immediately forget about these forums like I did with the other twenty forums I recently joined. :/

Greetings Hunter, and welcome to the board. I guess if we centered around anything, it was the mocking of any too extremist sentiment, though it seems most of that comes from the right nowadays. Keep things civil and smart, I doubt anyone will have any troubles with ya.

Post by: IWasAPerson on February 28, 2013, 07:06:58 pm
Hey guys,

Figured I'd join these forums after a friend on another forum I frequent thought I'd fit in nicely here. Wasn't sure what they meant by that, but sure enough I've lurked a bit and you guys seem great.  Although I'm going to college for electrical engineering, politics have been a big interest of mine, especially being able to debate about it. Seeing a lot of discussion like that and being level-headed at the same time about it kinda drew me in. That, and I really like a lot of the other topics as well. So yeah, looking forward to getting to know you guys.

Might as well say this because it seems like a lot of other people are, but...

1. I'm an independent, although I kinda flip depending on the subject matter. Especially after the 2012 election, and especially considering it's the first election I could vote in, I really can't bring myself to side with either the left or the right anymore.
2. I'm an Electrical Engineering major (takes up stupid amounts of time)
3. I'm a drummer. I dunno why that's important, but it's a lot of fun.
4. I've always been interested in video game designing.
4. I've been a part of a few forums before, but I only frequent one other one nowadays.

I was told to put a post in the newbie thread.

So, um, there's not too much to know about me. I have a fiancee I love, I don't spend a lot of time online (thanks to said fiancee), and I have no real support system to speak of outside of said fiancee and a few friends. I have a few family members who mean a great deal to me but whom I don't talk about often. Mainly because it starts rants on the inherent unfairness of the universe. I watch Walking Dead and Community. I read; a lot. I'm currently winding my way through my three dozenth or so reading of World War Z. I have no high hopes for the the movie. I love Kevin Smith movies. My internet connection sucks so don't ever expect to see me in a chat room. If you want to know anything, ask. But don't expect quick replies (see fiancee who doesn't like me wasting all my time online).

Pagan computer tech with two adult sons, one an eclectic liberal Christian who does NOT believe that the Bible is the word of god, and the other an Autistic Bisexual Atheist who introduced me to FSTDT on Facebook.

I know the whole "Long time lurker, first time poster" thing is so cliche...

But I really am a longtime lurker, first time poster.  I've sporadically contributed to the Mainpage for like six years now, and even registered for the last version of the message board, but never got around to posting.  And then I've been lurking this board for almost six months.

I don't expect I'll post all that often, because I don't think I often have anything anybody else'd give a shit about to say, but I figured if I don't break the ice I never will.

So hi everybody.

Hi, everybody!

I'm a computer engineering student from Brazil. I like retro games a lot, and frequently play old NES, SNES and GameBoy titles on emulators. I even used some of my programming knowledge to reverse engineer some parts of old games and had a lot of fun figuring out how they work.

Besides that, I'm a freethinker and I like rock music, math and machine-level programming stuff in general. Like most of you, I don't like wingnut fundie stupidity. I also have little respect for copyright trolls who managed to lobby their way to politics and now want to inflict on people punishments more severe than the ones for actual crimes that hurt people.

It was one of my friends that first showed me the site. I almost literally rolled on the floor laughing when I read the top 100 quotes. Now I'm joining the forum to find out how people here manage to find that stuff.

I'm new to this forum.  I participated in the FSTDT forums way back in '07, but haven't been back to the forums since them.  I do, however, comment on the main quotes page fairly regularly and have been doing so for years.

A little bit about me.  I'm middle age, retired military, a family man, agnostic-atheist with leanings toward anti-theism, politically liberal (with a few exceptions on some issues) and very opinionated.  I never set out to offend people, but it does seem to happen (I'll try to behave on this forum).

And if anyone is curious, that is a caffeine molecule as my AV (for now anyway), can't live without my morning, extra strong, extra black and repeated doses of caffeine.

Buongiorno! (I don't actually speak Italian) So, I've been been lurking on the main page for several years now, and recently started posting quite infrequently under the same name. I discovered the forum several months ago, and since then I've wasted a fair few hours browsing through various threads. Thought I might as well sign up and start contributing to the madness er...posting.

So a bit about me, I guess: I'm your standard straight, white (sorta), middle-class male. I'm from Canada, and I'm halfway through my undergrad degree. My major is in genetics and evolutionary biology, and my minor is in psychology. I have no idea what I'll do with my degree; I'll figure it out as I go, I guess.

Now, if I understand this correctly, I'll assume that Ironbite will be along shortly to steal my pants and add them to his secret stash?

That is, you probably missed out on people like Chagen (yes, he had returned, under 'Agni'). He was a riot. And also, DogmasDemise and AtheismExposed (who probably was a Poe).

And then, there was brief moments of drama with other colleges, mostly new members needing time to adjust to the community.

It's one thing to know, it's another thing to care about. Outside of some tiffs where it's overblown, it never comes up because it doesn't matter.

I'm gonna do a newbie post just because I've been away from the forum for over a year, and I hadn't posted on the new forums all that much anyhow. I'm 31, just accepting that I'm bi, chronically single, and prone to anxiety and mild depression.

I have a tendency to engage with a group, whether online or in meatspace, become known, make friends and then get hit with a massive sense of "what's the point" combined with lethargy and just drop out of sight, so be warned.

TL:DR version, using "online" and "in real life" is a part of the culture that sees certain  threats, harassment and even sexual violence as "only" online. I think it was Ben Goldacre I first saw using meatspace to distinguish face-to-face from online without that problem, I like its implied comparison with cyber-space.

Hi.  I hope I'm not too late for this party...

I'm Kat S., and I'm one of the people in the oddball demographic group for the FSTDT community and forum.  I am:

-Christian
-28 years old
-straight
-white, but of Hispanic heritage
-born in the Southern United States
-raised and currently living in Texas
 
However, I tend to be more skeptical and apolitical than the types of Christians that are from my part of the world. For example, I don't reject the idea of evolution, and I don't believe politics and religion should mix.  I am aware that the founding fathers of my country were more church attending deists and not evangelical Christians trying to set up a theocracy as some in my state claim.

On the side, and a little more about me, I am also a knowledge/trivia junkie and like to read Mental Floss, Cracked.com, and of course FSTDT.com.

Hello everybody! I was on the previous forum, and I thought I should revisit the community!

I am a nerd, and I greatly enjoy games, books and writing as a hobby. I am also a life-long atheist, feminist and bisexual, and I am seriously considering that I may be a female-to-male transsexual.
I come from Australia, and I live in Victoria in the town of Wangaratta. I only really have one friend, though I am very lucky to live in a liberal and accepting family.

On a side note, I have a pet lamb who lives in my back yard. His name is George.

Thanks for the welcome and also back in 2013 i used to be member on an offsite tvtropes forums called it just bugs me where i was at one point harassed for being a fur(i was still new),the members were very unfriendly and quite hostile. also at one point i was so stressed from it that developed a habit of making sock puppets after that i got pemabanned from both sites.

so yeah tvtropes is cesspool that I'am glad i got away from and it nearly made gave up being a fur even though its a non-fur site.

Like The Doctor said, we've got some furries here, and a few psuedo-furs, like myself (I like the artwork and draw some of it myself, and I even have a fursona of sorts, but I'm not active in the fandom). It suck to feel like giving up what you enjoy because people are jerks about it.

oddly enough i get more flak for my music tastes than for being a fur and i have a female fursona which got me mistaken for a girl once on PSN.

yeah i do feel i a little silly and i only got a bit touchy because the same thing kinda happend on one furry forum i was on for very short but unlike here they were 4chan/SA level nasty telling me like GTFO or saying the site did a good job banning me all while very poorly hiding that never read my op as one mod called me a lazy spaz for some odd reason.

Hey everyone.  I think some of you might remember me from a long while ago. If not, I'm the rookie. I've been gone a while, but like the cockroach after nuclear testing I'm back. I'm not the best at introductions, so if there's anything you want or need to knOw know feel free to ask.
For those who might remember me, I should probably catch up a little bit. You may remember I had 5 kids. Still have them and they get along very nicely with the set of twins I had during my absence. What else? I bought a house in the city (Baltimore, Maryland). I'm six months clean and sober. Still working in foodservice. And right after Christmas I added two kittens into my home despite being very much a dog person (and I found out I am slightly allergic to the furballs).
So what's been going on with you guys?

Post by: Defensor Ineptiarum on June 12, 2014, 10:34:46 pm
Eh so it looks like there is another new forum for skeptics formerly associated with FSTDT? I've been on previous incarnations of such a forum, at different stages of my life, but I guess I am a newbie here now.

When I was 15-16 years old (circa 2006), my political and religious quotes from Christian Forums made it to FSTDT numerous times, and I even joined the FSTDT forums, where I was an active poster, and from there I provided yet more quotes, I was a goldmine of 'fundie' inanities. I was an extreme Catholic and mainly posted about the evils of Jews, homosodomites, atheists, communists, etc. It was mostly over-the-top rabid nonsense, I'm not sure myself whether I even believed the drivel I was spewing or if I was just trolling for attention, I was a self-parody. I was known then as "Defensor Fidei", "Defender of the Faith". As a homage to my past, in my present incarnation, I've chosen the username "Defensor Ineptiarum", "Defender of Absurdities".  :P

It seemed like there were a whole slew of different FSTDT forums after that, I know I joined one of them long after I had outgrown the stupidity and apologized for my teenage nastiness, but that forum is evidently gone.

I think it's important to be honest and bring up my past just to show that people can wake up and change...especially if those people were self-hating closet-case teenage trolls.  :P

Anyway I just turned 24 and am now a gay atheist dating a Jewish guy (actually I just blew him about an hour ago, sorry if TMI :o).

While I am staunchly opposed to the Abrahamic religions and some of their barbaric practices, coincidentally my maternal grandmother, maiden name Stein, was ethnically Jewish, which by matrilineal descent would I guess technically make me Jewish by their own laws. Weird.

But so my homophobic, anti-Semitic rants really were quite absurd.  ::)

My current political views include anarcho-communist sympathies, although as a pragmatist my job is working for my local Democratic state assemblyman and I am involved in the local Democratic Party, including the county committee and the Young Dems. My 15-year-old self would consider me to be a total Hell-bound abomination, but fuck him ::)...I've long since been banned from Christian Forums, but this seemed like an interesting community to re-connect with.

But anyway I hope you will not judge me based on the idiot troll I was back then.  :-[

So um, hai.  ;D

Haha thanks. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing if people remember the old incarnation of me. :o What happened with all the different FSTDT fora that seemed to come and go? I remember the old FSTDT forum was run by a trans* woman, a 'pretty princess' I believe she called herself.

Funny thing, I was originally banned from Christian Forums for being too extreme in my rants against gays and Jews and my radical traditionalist version of Catholicism. A few years later I convinced them to unban me, and I ended up getting banned a second time for calling Chick-Fil-A supporters and opponents of marriage equality "bigots".  :P

What happened with all the different FSTDT fora that seemed to come and go? I remember the old FSTDT forum was run by a trans* woman, a 'pretty princess' I believe she called herself.

That was Yahweh. She eventually got burnt out on the whole thing and handed control to Distind (the current owner of FSTDT), and by "handed control" I mean she pulled the plug one day with little warning and had to be tracked down and convinced to give Distind access. Distind then set up a forum in Proboards (which is technically still alive (http://fstdt.proboards.com) though unused), which was supposed to be temporary but lasted for several years. Eventually most people got tired of Proboards' arbitrary rules and so we moved to a Simple Machines thing. As time went on Distind got tired of dealing with forum stuff so he asked if anyone else wanted to become forum admin while he ran the main page exclusively. I volunteered and got more or less democratically elected, and so for a while the forum and main page coexisted with different admins.

Then Distind said some things, people took offence, there was a lot of fighting, and he no longer wanted to keep the forum associated with FSTDT, but told me that if I wanted to keep it alive as a separate website I could. Digibase provided us with hosting and moved the database to a different domain, so essentially the forum stayed the same but with a different name.

And that is the Abridged History of FSTDT Forums, post-Yahweh era.

Welcome, Defensor.  I believe I remember you from both CF and FSTDT.  Indeed true that people can change their views, sometimes radically over the course of their lives.
 
I used to be known as SpaceProg in both places, but I doubt you'd remember me as I was a lot quieter back in the day.

I'm one of several theistic people here, but as you can see (seeing as how I'm a mod on a predominantly atheistic forum) we don't discriminate unless people are douches about it.

I like math, video games, and pretending to be fictional characters on Tumblr. I was gonna call myself my usual username, IdiotsOpposite, but I've been trying to wean myself away from it because it sounds rather pretentious. My vices are caffeine and, to a lesser extent, alcohol. I'm a Deist, a liberal, and a big fan of strategy games.

I just realized I never posted here. I'm Svata, an avid gamer, both video and tabletop. I'm an atheist, because I have seen zero evidence of any god(s). I react adversely to idiocy, and well to reasonable, well-thought-out arguments. Unfortunately, I'm somewhat lazy, and highly sarcastic. If I ever say anything that deeply offends someone, I apologize in advance, I'm kinda bad at putting words to what I want to say sometimes, and I have a tendency to say things that people take tye wrng way. That's pretty much it.

EDIT: Also, I read a lot. Mainly sci-fi and fantasy.
Title: Re: The Newbie Thread
Post by: POSW on July 12, 2014, 08:48:04 pm
Hi.

I posted a lot on the old forums (and I mean ooooold, back in 2007-2010) under the same name. I'm an atheist - formerly a Conservative Jew - liberal, bass player and songwriter, metalhead (Devin Townsend is currently my favorite artist ever), gamer, sci-fi/fantasy reader and all-around nerd. Since checking out of the old forums, I've also become interested in linguistics in the process of trying to create several languages for a fantasy story I was writing. I'm from the US, and am attending college on the East Coast right now.

I decided to come back because I showed the FSTDT Top 100 to my roommate a week or two ago (he's an atheist too) and we both nearly laughed ourselves into a coma.

Hello everyone!

I'm a (mostly Han, pretty sure there's a Jewish ancestor somewhere on my mother's side) Chinese currently living in America, so please excuse my occasional grammatical errors. Unfortunately despite being an Asian I'm not actually that smart, nor do I consider myself a gamer (though I was a story-writer from a mod that unfortunately is dead now).

While I have been hanging around FSTDT from a few years now I didn't make an account here until now because I was having problems with keeping track of all the other online accounts that I have.

Currently studying economics at Hampden-Sydney College. Despite that I think I'm leaning towards socialism more and more...

I play the trombone and taught myself how to play the piano (rather badly, but then again I was using YouTube as a source of learning so go figure)

Hello, some people may remember me. I actually first registered on these forums in May of 2012 so I don't need a long introduction. Really, I came back to convince anyone that I have not killed myself since I've expressed... strong feelings about myself the last weeks or so I was here. I wonder if people missed me when I was gone...
Title: Re: The Newbie Thread

*Raises hand*  I was wondering where you'd gone, but I'd assumed you'd-- like it tends to happen to some members of message boards --, just sort of... drifted away to other things.

Good to see you back. :)

I feel that way a lot too.  I think it's probably my depression talking, mostly.   If it helps any, for what it's worth, I never had any problem with you, and you're very welcome here from where I stand.

Do you count as a newbie when you've been gone for 2 years?

For those with whom I've fallen out of touch, here's a rough timeline of what happened:
7/2013: Make plans to move in with my awesome Jewish boyfriend.  Parents flip the fuck out over UNMARRIED COHABITATION and act like the Manbeast is only after money and a soft warm place to stick his Kosher dill.  They make an ultimatum.  Manbeast responds by formally proposing marriage.  Parents continue to flip the fuck out.
8/2013: I cave to my parents' emotional abuse and move back in with them.   This is a VERY BAD MOVE.
9/2013: I can't take it anymore and move in with the Manbeast on Labor Day weekend, while my parents are on a cruise.
8/2014: I GOT MARRIED WHOOO!
Now: Knitting, spending too much time online, and waiting for a BJD to arrive from Korea (the cool one, not the place where human rights to to die).

Yooo y'all.

I decided to give FQA another shot. I've been a on-and-off lurker here (like, before the split) but I made an account because I was going through some shit and needed to let it out. So I did, and it was really helpful, you guys were awesome! But I never followed up on it. So I've been taking better care of myself for a while, and I kinda wanna be a part of the community now. You know, to talk about all the shit that my friends are never interested in, basically. Also it feels weird knowing you guys but you not knowing me.

I'm new...net new.  I found this place because I've become a regular on FSTDT.com and got reading lots of the comments, saw that there were regular people and wondered if there was a forum where the all congregated.  I was pointed here.

I live in Canada.  I'm 48 (but I'm extremely immature for 48).  Agnostic but not sure if theist or atheist, I never understood the finer points of how that definition is supposed to work.  I'm a musician.  Pet peeve is fundamentalists.

as long as you have a sense of humor and don't get on ironbite's bad side, you should be fine. then again, he's already got like, 3 chewtoys, so yeah. fine.

also, we're not rabid antitheists (well, most of us anyway). it's just a place to talk about most things in a calm and collected way with each other.

new blood is always welcome, after the split a lot of members left, feelings were hurt, and the separation from the boards didn't help keep the forum population afloat.

Thanks for the info regarding board history.  Shame when things like that happen. 

I'm not an antitheist, hell, I'm even a church organist.  And even though I agree with most things atheists say, I can't quite make the leap to calling myself atheist for some reason.  Not sure why.  I think it sounds too much like you've arrived at some concrete decision which of course I haven't, and never expect to.  I was raised Catholic, gradually moved towards the atheist side of the spectrum but stopped just short of it.

I would say I'm here because it's a logical extension of the comment section of FSTST.  I love reading those comments but wish I could talk with some of the people who make them.

Not always. Additionally worth noting is that we don't shy away from pointed criticism. If the claim is outrageous enough to drop the cool and collected manner, well, it's no holds barred.

That said, most conversations here aren't like that, but expect people who disagree with your claims to let you know.

Thanks, yes, I didn't get an activation code at all!  Checked my deleted and junk folders and everything.  After a couple days the login just worked.

Yeah, there's an issue where sometimes people need their account activated manually (I try to check for that every day). You should have gotten an email when your account was activated, but maybe that isn't working right either?

I'm tired and I can't get any sleep, so screw shyness and nervousness, I'm gonna give this forum a shot.

Hey. As you can probably tell by my chosen nick, I'm from Finland. I've lurked FSTDT for years and enjoyed the smackdowns dispensed there, and recently I found this forum and saw that it's pretty chill. Good conversation, interesting people, politics that align with my interests, bashing fundies, all that good stuff. So I'm here, hoping that I'll fit in and get along.

I'm 21, my hobbies include Magic: The Gathering, novels, classic jRPGs (read: masochism and Stockholm Syndrome), writing of the "pretending to be fictional characters online" variety, overthinking fiction and trying my best to reject heteronormativity/cissexism/sexism/racism/all that "good" stuff.

I don't know what to say at introductions.

Suomi Saatana just means Finnish Satan, right? Doesn't seem terribly inappropriate, what with us all being a bunch of godless heathens (well, not all, but the rest know who they are associating with).

Or are there subtle connotations I'm missing here? Suomi is just about the only word of Finnish I know.

I am a new person. I am bad at self-description; my apologies.

I'm very bad at finishing things (for example, finishing reading a book, watching all of a show, completing a single-player game, completing writing a program, finishing writing other things).

I do computer security for a living. I live in the US.

I am one of those weird "Tumblr rationalist" people Sigmaleph is dating. Which is related to how I became aware of this place. It seems an interesting community, but I do not know if I will end up posting much as I am a shy.

I am normally more verbose than this.

So I am! Thanks. I have not inferred your Tumblr URL from your presence here so I've no idea whether I've encountered you there.

You're also adorable, let's not forget that part.

Even if that's true, I'm not going to come out and say it. Especially when I have you to do so for me.

I don't know if that means Hell is freezing over or if it just seems slightly less hot in comparison with Earth now.  I guess we'll find out after a couple years of Trump's environmental policies.

:D I don't know you Askold, but I like you already!

And thanks. Though I have been something of a regular in the FSTDT quote archives, so I haven't entirely been away. I just didn't visit this forum for a long while.

So...  *Breaths in heavily*

After almost two years of reading FSTDT and occasionally leaving comments, I felt it was time to create an account there, so may as well here.

So Hi Everybody! :)

About me: I'm an atheist (raised reformed christian), I'm Swiss and I'm almost in my 30s (damn!)
For funs I do music and origami. My political views are somewhat left of middle.

I adapted my user name because the first FSTDT quote I was commenting on, had the OP saying something like: "AAAARGGHHH!! IM NOT JUST SOME APE!!! IM A GODCHILD!!" or shit.
So I thought: "well, i'm just some ape and feeling fine about it"
As an avatar, I tried to upload the first picture I found by imagegoogling "some ape", a cool gorilla btw, but somehow it didn't work.

In Switzerland, there is not such a big problem with fundies but the conspiracy stuff is growing lately. I'm worried. There's politicians in the Nationalrat that deny climate change! I know, you've seen worse!

Eeerrmm, you know.
Ask me anything you'd like to know more about me..

Greetings

Some Ape

P.S. Forgeeve mye inglush skillz ;)

Also, how is that upload-avatar-pic working?
Sorry to bother but im not able to do this obviously. :(

Oh, I forgot to say: I'm not exactly a scientist. But I'm a sound engineer. So if youre having questions about acoustics stuff, ask me.

So did you download the picture to your computer first, or were you trying to link it from where the picture was originally located?

If you didn't download it first, it's probably better to do so.  Then..

(I'll go through the whole procedure just in case:)

Profile>Modify Profile>Forum Profile.
Tick the item on the list that says "Upload an avatar"
Click on the "browse" botton and locate the avatar image on your computer
Click "Open" and it should upload it

Does any of that help?

All three at once   ;D that would be hilarious!
No, see, the thing is this. We do have three official languages* but not everyone speaks every language. French (though it is a bit different than french in France) is spoken in the western part of Switzerland. Italian is spoken in Tessin/Ticino in the south. The rest of the country speaks Swiss german, which is again different from Germany german and comes in a variety of dialects. Though I learned French in school, I almost never use it and would probably embarass myself speaking it :)
I don't know any Italian apart from "Que cazzo fai?" (WTF are you doing?) :D

*Actually four. There is a minority in the eastern part that speak Rumantsch.

I'm a newbie to these forums but I have been part of the community on the main page for quite a while now. I used to go under the nickname Yuu. I disappeared for a few months when I got busy with college. But I came back to see the change in ownership and the re-merger. Decided since we were starting fresh (and I lost my old password months ago anyway) that I'd make a new account on both sites.

And is it Centaur or Minotaur? ...Or one of those bullshit new options like Liontaur and so on that have been invented in fiction based on the myth. (Funnily enough, all of those are built like a centaur rather than minotaur. I suppose it is the more uncommon bodytype while "animal head on a human" or "anthromorphic animal" are an existing trope as well but none of those follow the -taur naming convention.)
