10 telltale signs you are on your way to becoming a lonely atheist nerd
2. You own more pocket protectors than shirts.
3. You tell your girlfriend that she is merely a result of blind random natural forces and there is nothing particularly special about her. Of course, this lets her know that you are an insensitive liar and she starts crying (see: Atheism and deception and Atheism and social intelligence).
4. American atheists are significantly less likely to get married than the general population and atheism is significantly less appealing to women. When you had problems finding a wife, you refused to consider the possibility that you could be the problem and instead blamed it on womankind.
6. You fly into an uncontrollable rage when your girlfriend brings up Shockofgod's question.
7. After your last girlfriend dumped you, you reminded yourself that you still have a lot of atheist subscribers at your YouTube atheism channel and your Reddit atheist friend list is quite large. In addition, your mother no longer believes you are going to get married.
8. You try to convince every woman you meet to visit atheists' websites. You do this because you are mad at Conservapedia for pointing out that the web traffic tracking companies Alexa and Quantcast indicate that a majority of web visitors to prominent atheists' websites are males (Please see: Atheism appears to be significantly less appealing to women).
10. Your girlfriend tells you that there needs to be better communication between you two so you buy her a Star Trek USB Communicator that will allow you two to "Stay connected Starfleet style" via Skype and IM programs. You also suggest that you and your girlfriend work on Wikipedia articles together.
Wikipedia, which was co-founded by the atheist Jimmy Wales, has an atheist nerd infestation problem and this indisputable fact will be alluded to shortly through an impeccable source (Hint concerning the impeccable source: His song is THE definitive song on nerds and nerd behavior).
Please note:! If you are an atheist male and you carefully examined the 10 telltale signs you are on your way to becoming a lonely atheist nerd and told yourself: "I didn't match any of them therefore I am not an atheist nerd and atheists are not more prone to being nerds", that is a clear and strong warning sign you are an atheist nerd! Only atheists who are nerds take atheist nerd tests! Real men don't take atheist nerd tests! They are too busy making a difference in the world. If you are an atheist and you took this test, please see: The atheist and evolutionist helpline
Attention male atheists! Nerds obviously have a significantly less likelihood of marrying. Lo and behold, as noted earlier, American atheists are significantly less likely to get married than the general population. Click HERE to read more about atheist male nerds. See also: Atheism and loneliness

Atheist PZ Myers says atheists are largely a population of internet nerds and geeks
In 2013, the atheist PZ Myers declared:
|“||If we're going to expand our base and we're going to draw in more people to recognize the virtues of living in a secular world, we need to appeal to more than just that geek and nerd subset of the population. We need to have a wider base. ...I seriously believe that we're on the cusp of a crisis. We're not there yet but it's looming in front of us. Will we adapt and thrive and change the world? Or will we remain an avocation for a prosperous and largely irrelevant subset of the population? Will we become something more than a scattered society of internet nerds? That's what we have to do.||”|
In response, Evolution News and Views wrote:
|“||A crisis looms, in Myers's view, because he looks around himself and sees a not very promising basis for a mass movement. He's right. There is indeed a quality of geeky isolation from reality, common sense, and the fullness of life that I see as a motif in atheist and Darwin activism alike.||”|
Atheist nerds don't do disco
In 2015, BloombergView reported concerning the United States:
|“|| According to a much-discussed 2012 report from the Pew Research Center on Religion and Public Life, only 3 percent of U.S. atheists and agnostics are black, 6 percent are Hispanic, and 4 percent are Asian. Some 82 percent are white. (The relevant figures for the population at large at the time of the survey were 66 percent white, 11 percent black, 15 percent Hispanic, 5 percent Asian.)
...Craig Keener, in his huge review of claims of miracles in a wide variety of cultures, concludes that routine rejection of the possibility of the supernatural represents an impulse that is deeply Eurocentric.

Excerpts from the song White and Nerdy
"All of my action figures are Cherry, Stephen Hawking's in my library....
They were havin' a sale down at The Gap, Spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap...
I edit Wikipedia...I'm nerdy in the extreme, whiter than sour cream...
They see me strollin', they're laughin'
And rollin' their eyes cause I'm so
White and nerdy". - White and Nerdy, Weird Al Yankovic

The Christian apologist Michael Caputo wrote:
|“||Recently the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has published its mammoth study on Religion in America based on 35,000 interviews... According to the Pew Forum a whopping 37% of atheists never marry as opposed to 19% of the American population, 17% of Protestants and 17% of Catholics.||”|
The Ammerican contrarian blog Half Sigma declared:
|“|| ...atheists are most likely to live alone.
This is not surprising. Atheists are less desirable...partners. I observed this once when I was living in Washington, DC, and I wandered by an atheist convention happening on the mall. The atheist were predominately male, and significantly uglier than average.
Jay Fink writes:
If you are attractive and have a good social life you will generally not be interested in out of the mainstream groups or ideas. Why buck the status quo when it's working in your interests?
In 2011, only 2 of the Miss USA contestants thought evolution should be taught in schools. Since World War II a majority of the most prominent and vocal defenders of the theory of evolution which employs methodological naturalism have been atheists or agnostics.
The Audacious Epigone blog, which specializes in collecting data relative to stereotypes, writes about atheists having an above average propensity to live in single person households:
|“||The low rates of multiple person households is part of the explanation, but the high number of lone wolves among their ranks illustrates their social marginality in another way relative to the cognitive endowments they enjoy. This does little to dispel stereotype I hold of atheists as cynical, single white guys who live in apartments downtown, work at used record stores, love George Carlin, and watch Adult Swim.||”|

Why most people have never heard an "atheism dance song"
Below are Indian Christian Music dance songs:
- Suraj chandha
- Ayega Ayega
- Tamil Christian Song - Poorana Azhagullavar
- Hosana Hosana
- Ten Bridesmaids dance
- Maadu Adayum
- Masilla Mainthan Ontru
When is the last time you heard an "atheism dance song"? Never. That is because atheism is such a bleak worldview filled with depressed atheists (Please see: Atheism and depression). Another reason why the atheist community has not developed atheism dance music is of course that the atheist community suffers from a major nerd infestation.
For more information please see:

Racial minority population views' of two white, male, atheist nerds
According to the web traffic tracking firm Quantcast, the following racial groups have below average interest in Richard Dawkins' website richarddawkins.net: Asians, Hispanics, and African Americans. In addition, according to the web traffic tracking firm Quantcast, the following racial groups have below average interest in Sam Harris' website samharris.org: Asians, Hispanics, and African Americans. This data combined with the aforementioned data, suggest that the New Atheist movement (which appears to largely appeal to white, male, atheist nerds) is significantly less appealing to racial minorities.
Bill Gates Interview with Time Magazine. Was Bill Gates a white, agnostic nerd? You decide!
Time Magazine reporter Walter Isaacson: Right? Isn't there something special, perhaps even divine, about the human soul?
His face suddenly becomes expressionless, his squeaky voice turns toneless, and he folds his arms across his belly and vigorously rocks back and forth in a mannerism that has become so mimicked at Microsoft that a meeting there can resemble a round table of ecstatic rabbis. Finally, as if from an automaton, comes the answer: "I don't have any evidence on that." Rock, rock, rock. "I don't have any evidence on that."
Recently, Bill Gates became a theist. In 2014, Gates declared, "But the mystery and the beauty of the world is overwhelmingly amazing, and there's no scientific explanation of how it came about. To say that it was generated by random numbers, that does seem, you know, sort of an uncharitable view [laughs]. I think it makes sense to believe in God...”
Women's views of the atheists Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris
According to the website tracking firms Alexa and Quantcast women frequent the website of Samharris.org and richarddawkins.net significantly less than men. Apparently, women are not particularly interested in the words of white, atheist, male nerds. Perhaps, this partly explains the two divorces of Richard Dawkins, although certainly his abrasiveness no doubt was the dominant factor (please see: Women's views of Richard Dawkins and Atheism and marriageability ).
