I had this really perverse idea that it would be wickedly entertaining to visit this site and arrange a meeting with that compatible person that Gawd has been "keeping" just for you. You get to know them and then after a couple dates start asking those leading religious questions that ultimately makes them develop a sense of uneasiness and uncomfortable awareness. The different avenues of approach are limitless. Of course I realize this could be properly regarded as unethical as hell and something only a despicable atheist would dream of. I would venture that it has already happened. But why would Gawd not warn the unknowing victim of their impending dupe? Huh?

Not seeing the upside to this. It seems like it would be a waste of time. I personally hate it when people try to convert me, no matter how subtle they think they are being. also I think wasting people's time is a "sin" lol

I get sick and tired of that xianmingle .com  commercial on CNN.  They think they're better than everybody else when it's more like one delusional person looking for another.   I wonder what would happen if atheists made a commercial called   atheistmingle.com   I bet there'd be a huge uproar and tv stations in America wouldn't likely display them.

We could call it "Atheist Co-mingle.com".

"A place to find your 'Mate', male or female, humanist or atheist, available or not. You could wait for the Universe to find your 'mate' by random chance or the laundro-mat, but we suggest that our pro-active, 'Scientific' approach, might get the job done faster with less fuse, and no demand on your common sense. Fill out our on-line 82 deminsional questioneer, and let us do the rest. You are only days away from finding that perfect someone/something that will float your boat, and curl your toes! No 'god' need be applied!"

Such a suggestion might work better as a mock-u-mercial on SNL, and still work!

I started a atheist dating site called carbondate.me but it's still in beta. Meaning a lot of bugs to figure out with making it work correctly for everyone. Im looking to overhaul it the upcoming months and ill send out mass e-mail about it :]

@ Ed

I don't actually intend to

I don't remember if there's a user agreement (I'm inclined to assume so, though I wouldn't have read it), and they don't make much effort to question whether or not you're genuine.

They ask what denomination you were raised in and then how often you go to church ("Never" is not an option), then ask what denomination you're currently a part of-- "None" isn't an option, the closest consolation being "Not sure yet".

After that it's what I assume is pretty standard dating site stuff. You have to "upgrade" (pay) to access certain features.

On the upside, I feel like a number of the users (at least the ones in my preference bracket) seem to care much less about the Christian aspect and more about the dating. Regular posts in the message board like the following reaffirm this:

Christian by name only

I am just wondering what others thoughts are on this topic. You can read in someone's profile about their thankfulness to God, or how they live for God each day etc. But then you see in their profile they attend church several times a year. Or upon chatting they are OK with premarital sex. Are we not all reading the same God Breathed word that directs us how we are to live, to Glorify our Father and not bring needless suffering on ourselves?


I'd say it's worth the three minutes it takes to join just to read the posts on the message board, which can be pretty interesting. Topics include Relationships & Dating (the most popular by far), Education & Resources, Daily Devotionals (the two least popular), Prayer Requests (fairly popular), and Bible Study and Theology. Along with your standard Health & Fitness, Current Events, etc etc boards.
