I’m so lonely

This is so sad. There is now a Richard Dawkins social networking site, and I have no friends. Not even among those dour, hateful, amoral atheists. You’d think we’d be so perfect together!

    You could start something called the PZ Myers Lonely Hearts Club. (And maybe it could have a band.) Dawkins would be so jealous!

    I signed up to the thing a couple of months ago but haven’t been back. It’s not very well maintained. I created a group for films and filmmakers, and one day I logged on and was told I was not a member of the group I created and couldn’t post to it. So I thought, screw it. The site needs to get over its teething pains in a major way before it’s as worthwhile as the others.

    If there’s one thing worse than religion, it’s social networking sites.

    Perversely (godless heathen that I am), I’m glad to hear that, Professor. I was beginning to think that I was the only one. ­čśë And Martin Wagner makes a good point – it does seem as though they are working out bugs as they go along.

    Sorry to tell you this, but the latest issue of Wired Magazine (Sept. 2007) lists the Dawkins Social Network in an article called “World’s Lamest Social Networks.”

    “Who you’ll meet: Humorless atheists”

    “What’s annoying: Dont these people realize that the earth is only 6,000 years old?”

    Maybe you could pray for friends.

    To Dawkins, of course.

    Boy, talk about instant gratification in the modern electronic world.

    Note that PZ has been a member for less than a day and has 44 friends in a network of 632. Not that I have any clue as to how many unique individuals have purposefully connected to him.

    Semper ubi sub ubi.

    (yes – even on the internet)

    How long until the Richard Dawkins soda?
