However, this wasn't the end of FSTDT as a new administrator, Yahweh (who saw fundies in much the same way as [=WinAce=]), picked up where the first left off, both in the memory of [=WinAce=] and as a project to improve her coding skills. However, Yahweh found the task of rebuilding and recompiling the website to be far more difficult than she initially expected and ended up abandoning the project after a valiant effort. The third and current administrator, Distind (who watches fundies in an attempt to figure out what makes them tick), much more confident in his programming abilities, picked up where Yahweh left off and the site flourishes under his command to this day.

[[foldercontrol]] [[folder: Tropes A-D]] * AbusiveParents: Some of the quotes actually attempt to justify child abuse. One particularly horrifying example is [[http://fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=23139&Page=3 this]]. It advocates spanking children until they cry "tears of a broken will". * AgainstMyReligion * AggressiveCategorism: [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=91933 According to Bill O'Reilly]], "industrious and hard-working", which [[InterchangeableAsianCultures applies to all Asians]], cannot possibly describe anyone who would vote Democratic or otherwise hold liberal views (read: views that aren't his). * AliensAreBastards: They [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=92633 rape this man's wife]] once a month because MarsNeedsWomen. Or something. * AliensStealCattle: Or just [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87840 kill them]] with their alien death rays. * AllBlueEntry: [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=80911&Page=2#1283741 This]] and its following post restate the original post entirely in TVTropes links. * AllGaysArePedophiles: The author of [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=12343 this]] quote makes the assumption that ''her own brother'' is going to molest her son purely because he is gay. * AllGaysArePromiscuous * AllGermansAreNazis: Apparently some fundies [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87986 sincerely believe this]]. * AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Taken UpToEleven by Vox Day, who sincerely believes that killing and raping women is [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=84101 "demonstrably more attractive to women"]] than showing them respect. * AllJewsAreCheapskates[=/=]GreedyJew: [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79167 Some fundamentalists]] quoted on the site rehash the old conspiracy theory of Jews running the banks. * AllMenAreRapists[=/=]AllMenArePerverts: While more rare than quotes from their [[DoesNotLikeWomen MRA counterparts]], every once in a while a so-called [[DoesNotLikeMen "radical feminist"]] is quoted as saying something along these lines. * [[AllCrimesAreEqual All Sins Are Equal]]: From fundamentalists we learn not only that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=80582 being angry at someone is on par with killing that person]], but also that the "sin" of homosexuality [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=74173 is the moral equivalent of gluttony, adultery, lying, etc.]] * AmbiguouslyBrown: Wyatt's Torch [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=81741 referred to Fareed Zakaria as a "camel jockey."]] Zakaria is an Indian-American, not an Arab. * AmericaTakesOverTheWorld: Until that happens [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=77386 "there will be no peace on earth."]] * AnalogyBackfire: One Freeper was arguing why the title of "marriage" should be reserved only for straight Christians--and managed to [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=89759 compare God with Santa Claus]] in the process. * AnatomicallyImpossibleSex ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=65932 This poster]], for example, believes that "God designed girls" in such a way that their "bodies wouldn't reject a foreign body", and that having multiple sex partners in one's lifetime "compromises a woman's immunity to viruses and disease greatly." (Although having multiple sex partners does give you a greater chance of getting an STD, but this probably wasn't what they had in mind.) ** Mike Frey [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93163 spoke out against same-sex marriage]] before the House Civil Law Committee in Minnesota. According to his testimony, not only do ''all'' gay men engage in anal sex, but AIDS is transmitted via enzymes and [[STDImmunity cannot be contracted through vaginal intercourse]]. ** Then there's ''[[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=77289 this quote]]'' which asserts that condoms actually ''cause'' AIDS. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=72082 "[I]t seems to me that not even biology class has any need to talk about human sex."]] ** And whatever ''this'' [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93751 insanity]] is.[[note]]Seriously, none of the other commenters knew what to make of it.[[/note]] * {{Anti-Intellectualism}} * AppealToConsequences: ** One of the more common arguments against the theory of evolution is that it is [[BlatantLies directly responsible]] for atheism, [[SuperBreedingProgram eugenics]], racism, [[AxesAtSchool school shootings]], abortion, [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazism]], [[DirtyCommunists Communism]], etc. A classic example can be found [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=92086 here]]. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=63360 "If God doesn't matter to him, do you?"]]. * AppealToIgnorance * AppealToNature: Xizor [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=91736 believes]] that racial equality is wrong because "equality exists nowhere in nature" and that in nature "there must always be a hierarchy". * AppealToPopularity: Wyatt Junker used the number of results in a Google search [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87101 to prove Sharia law was overtaking France.]] In response, nearly all the commenters [[HilarityEnsues began applying this "logic" to other search terms]], including Mars, [[Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]]. * AppealToTradition: Usually on the subject of LGBT rights or women's suffrage. * ArabOilSheikh: Amusingly averted so far. * ArkhamsRazor: Jan51 built his own computer, and after ten years, it began to emit a strange tone. Instead of coming to the conclusion that the aging hardware was malfunctioning, what does he think? [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=96600 That the government is spying on all computer users through a secret chip.]] No joke. * ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: ** [[InvokedTrope Entitled by name]] in [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79897 this quote]]. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=17930 "That includes the most heinous criminals, such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Tupac Shakur."]] ** [=IslandLifer=] hates [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86764 "monkeys, wetbacks, ragheads, and micronesians"]] [sic]. ** [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=53665 "Many Christmas songs have a rock music beat, others are sang [sic] by known homosexuals, some songs are sang [sic] so fast that it's utterly annoying."]] ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=20068 "The Super Bowl is a melting pot hot enough for atheists, Sodomites, and Teletubbies to become one with the Saved, if only for a single Sunday."]] * ArtifactOfDoom: Fundamentalists sometimes worry about inanimate objects being "cursed" or just downright "evil". ** In one example, a Christian mother was frightened because [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=61053 her son received a Magic 8 Ball for his birthday]]. ** Another quote deals with [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=60747 cursed books]]. * ArtisticLicense: Pretty much ''every trope in the index'' at least once. A few examples include: ** ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: *** Not only is [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=76077 the sun 32 miles in diameter]], [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=44889 it's also a planet]]. *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=35602 If the Earth were one inch further or closer to the sun life couldn't exist!]] [[spoiler:The Earth's distance from the sun varies by about 3 million miles over the course of the year.]] ** ArtisticLicenseAwards: *** [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=97356 "Nobel Prize to deny God? Yep"]] ** ArtisticLicenseBiology: *** [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=67928 This]]. Much of the site contains ridiculous arguments against the theory of evolution. *** Creationist teachers [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=74989 told]] a student that all humans descended from Adam and Eve, and that inbreeding would not have been an issue because "DNA wasn't invented then." *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=7877 This poster]], in addition to thinking evolution is false because there are no "[[NonMammalianMammaries giant mammaried mosquitos]]" or "feathered fish", is apparently unaware that there ''are'' live-bearing snakes. *** [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88876 This person]] thinks that if you get two of the "best and most diverse" members of every species, you're not going to have issues with inbreeding. *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=77556 This quote]] takes irreducible complexity to absurd new levels. *** According to [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88464 this one]], believing in evolution gives you [[GoalOrientedEvolution superhuman powers]] [[MindScrew or something]]. *** Todd Akin's ignorance is once again recorded in [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=92799 this quote]]. Apparently, abortions can be given to women who are not pregnant (and this is also a terrible, terrible thing). *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=50065 Kent Hovind]] has stated that "I don't think you could demonstrate bugs are alive!" *** And apparently both bacteria and plants [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93855 have a heartbeat]]... *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=64106 "Bee's and other buzzing insects displace gravity much like a gryo-scope [sic] does but in a 360 degree fasion...The bee is capable of removing an estimated 40 to 60% of the ether filling its atoms depending on how hard it is buzzing."]] *** Watergaia [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=66080 believes]] that both whales and dolphins are fish. *** omicron7 [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=65836 said]] that [[CalvinAndHobbes "bats are birds" because "they fly and look like birds."]] *** [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=98185 This quote]] gets virology completely wrong. ** ArtisticLicenseChemistry: *** Apparently, [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=72280 you can't combine oxygen and hydrogen to make water]], and even the smartest man on Earth can't. [[spoiler: A pre-schooler can do it.]] **** As many commenters gleefully noted, [[{{Hindenburg}} the Germans once did it by accident.]] *** Also, apparently [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=85517 elements rarely react with each other]], no one knows how chemical bonds form, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mx5JJWI2aaw a solid and a gas couldn't possibly react]]. ** ArtisticLicenseGeography ** ArtisticLicenseGeology: *** Apparently some fundies cannot fathom [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=64955 the concept of continental drift]]. ** ArtisticLicenseHistory: *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79012 Scott]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=91037 Lively]] and [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=76982 Bryan Fischer]] are proponents of the theory that gay men orchestrated the Holocaust. *** "[[Music/TheBeatles Lennon]], [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90002 the founder of Russian Communism, said that if you tell a lie loud enough and often enough people will believe it."]] *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=85662 This poster]] says that Hitler "wanted Germany (and possibly the rest of Europe) to be Islamic". *** [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=698 "Go back and study American history. The nation is about religious freedom.....for Christians."]] ** ArtisticLicenseLaw: *** Fundies often claim that the Constitution established the United States as a Christian nation. [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=82495 This]] quote claims that the Founding Fathers made it illegal for atheists to testify in court or to hold public office. *** Joseph Farah claimed that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=36823 abortion is illegal in the United States]], regardless of the Supreme Court's decision in ''Roe v. Wade''. ** ArtisticLicenseLinguistics: *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93194 "[I]f this abomination happens I am taking my family north and teaching them to speak Canadian".]] *** John Fast [[note]](if he isn't a Poe)[[/note]]actually believes that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94696 Jesus Christ spoke Shakespearean English.]] ** ArtisticLicenseMedicine: *** Mike Adams [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79475 has absolutely no idea]] how modern medicine actually works. ** ArtisticLicensePhysics: *** "[[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=77098 The emission theory states that]] [[EyeBeams the light emits from our own eyes]], [[ArtisticLicensePhysics not from the object we look at]]." *** "[[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=8255 The Second Law of Thermodynamics proves]] that evolution is impossible -- it could only happen if there were [[ThePowerOfTheSun a giant outside source of energy]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy]]." *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87194&Page=1 "Simply put, E=mc2 is liberal claptrap."]] ** ArtisticLicenseReligion: *** Among other things, [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90949 the]] [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=58388 Bible]] [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=54946 apparently]] [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=39147 forbids]] [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=64700 interracial]] [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=15921 marriage]]. [[spoiler:Moses and his wife were an interracial couple, and God smote someone for complaining.]] *** [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=60963 These]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=49625 two]] are considerably worse. [[http://fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=15495 This]] just doesn't make sense. *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=56139 "Atheism is just a fascist religion; akin to Islam."]] *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=61849 "...i cant imagine how insulted jesus and moses would feel if they were called jewish."]] *** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=76217 "Past immigrants were Christian Muslims who were persecuted by Islamic Muslims."]] *** And as for getting other religions totally wrong, [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=81042 this]]. All you need to know about it is that it calls Buddhism "Japanese voodoo." *** Jodie appears to have [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86682 confused the Bible]] with either ParadiseLost or TheDivineComedy. ** ArtisticLicenseStatistics: *** [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=65852 This]]. *** Not to mention [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=49956 this]]. [[spoiler:[[CaptainObvious You have to take into account the previous statistics when you go up]], so there should be ''more'' than 24% with 100+ partners. But that would be if the statistics [[LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics weren't complete bullshit]].]] ** ArtisticLicenseTraditionalChristianity ** ArtisticLicenseUniversityAdmissions: *** Usually occurs when fundies complain about affirmative action for racial minorities. [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=76474 This Freeper]], while mocking transgender people, comes up with a hypothetical scenario in which a white "transracial" individual says he's black on a college application and is automatically accepted despite low SAT scores. * AssimilationAcademy: Certain private religious schools serve as nothing more than [[{{Brainwashed}} indoctrination centers]] for children, teaching them to value rigid dogma as opposed to critical thinking skills. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94075&Page=1 Here]] is an actual science quiz from the Blue Ridge Christian Academy in [[DeepSouth South Carolina]]. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=91914 This]] is a page from an actual Creationist textbook. * AssociationFallacy: [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87615 This]] is a notable example. * AxCrazy: Damian apparently [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=97262 views the U.S. as a battlefield]] and genuinely ''wants'' [[{{Sadist}} to go on a murder spree,]] [[BloodLust drinking the blood of his enemies in the process]]. Several commenters are legitimately terrified by his comments. * BeautyIsBad: [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=25520 According to Mercy Burst, anyway...]] * BeliefMakesYouStupid: Sometimes. Though the site is careful to differentiate between religious moderates and [[ChurchMilitant religious fundamentalists]]. * BestialityIsDepraved: It's not uncommon for fundies to accuse homosexuals or atheists of bestiality; this has led to many comments about their apparent obsession with the topic. Made all the more disturbing by Neal Horsley, who [[spoiler: admitted in a radio interview to [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=74052 having had sex with a mule]].]] * BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: The creators of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' are trying to teach children the [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=74559 truth about reptilians!]] * BerserkButton: ** For FSTDT commenters, fundie quotes about rape, specifically those which attempt [[NeverMyFault to excuse the rapist]] or [[ImAManICantHelpIt to shift blame to the victim]]. [[JustifiedTrope Naturally]], these particular quotes receive by far the most vitriolic comments and usually attain especially high Fundie Indexes. As a result, the [[http://fstdt.com/Top100.aspx?Archive=1 Top 100]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=64100 page]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=80416 contains]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=74747 a]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=78607 markedly]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=73179 disproportionate]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79872 number]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=84101 of]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79807 posts]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=81990 about]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=71305 rape]]. ** Posts promoting abusive parenting practices and similar abuse of children tend to get [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=67487 similar]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79263 enraged]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=64958 reactions]].

The early days of the site were mostly good for a laugh, if you find yourself amused by extremes of human stupidity. Quotes came mostly from religious web fora, and were, for the most part, the type of humorous idiocy exhibited by the users of Rapture Ready and CARM. The splitting off of CSTDT and RSTDT into their own sections led to many quotes being submitted not because of their stupidity, but because they represented a throwback to less-enlightened times. The situation went FromBadToWorse after the election of Barack Obama and the rise of the Tea Party, which released a fury of conservatives all eager to say the most horrible and disgusting things about the President, and quotes promoting racism or [[AynRand Objectivism]] became more common than the original science-denying quotes.

Not content with butchering science, he has apparently decided to [[ArtisticLicenseLinguistics butcher the English language]] as well, [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=18673 claiming that the words "life" and "faith" are verbs]]. Amongst all the people quoted on FSTDT, Supersport's claims are so unbelievable that on the FAQ, Distind singles him out as someone he still cannot understand, despite years of trying. As of this edit he has been quoted 149 times![[note]]The two are so unbelievably stupid that some have suggested that Cassiterides is Supersport's kid, hoping that there is no way that two people so stupid could exist independently of one another.[[/note]] ** Another contender to the title of "dumbest person on the Internet" is Self-Mutation. He has made such stupid statements as that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83091 a crucifix will not shake during an earthquake]] (because [[ArtisticLicenseGeology earthquakes are caused by the devil]]), that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83092 God is the only reason that the rules of basic arithmetic stay internally consistent]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83118 atheists will not accept the truth of religion no matter how much "evidence" they are given]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83119 scientists refer to science textbooks as Holy Writ, instead of, you know, actually doing the scientific method]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83161 critical thinking is a religion]] (and that it is a bad thing), that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87136 radiometric dating doesn't work on objects of known age]],[[note]]Just because something was recently manufactured does not mean the raw materials are young.[[/note]] that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87346 God would actively prevent atheists from learning of his existence]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87349 China did not exist before the Flood]] even after being '''given the evidence''' that shows otherwise, that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90898 atheists only pretend to be moral "just in case" it turns out that God actually exists]], and that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90904 babies and small children are evil little hellions who deserve to die if their parents do not believe in God]].[[note]]Also that those children would never have rejected the bad parts of their culture had they been allowed to live -- in the fundies' world, if you were born into a backwards society then there is no hope for you.[[/note]] All things considered, he has been compared to Supersport by more than one commenter. * SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Regular fundie commenter Phillip-George(c)2013, often to the point of being [[WordSaladPhilosophy completely unintelligible]]. * SignsOfTheEndTimes: A favorite subject of the [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=69669 folks]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=69924 at]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79693 Rapture]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86011 Ready]]. * SingleIssueWonk: ** Several, but one who comes to mind is baileysmom from Rapture Ready, whose posts are ''always'' rants against gay people. She even derails [[LeftFielder completely unrelated threads]] to take a swipe at them. *** This became so common that at least one commenter decided to post using that name, [[{{Troll}} celebrating]] [[ParentalIncest the (fabricated) child abuse of the eponymous Bailey]]. ** Another example is Headache, a commenter on FSTDT. Inevitably, when an American fundie is quoted, he would ''always'' rant about how the United States of America sucks and how the American people are stupid and have no hope of ever matching the rest of the world in intelligence. He is quite fond of calling the U.S. "batshit insane". True to this trope, he never talks about anything else with the vitriol that he reserves for Americans, and non-American fundies who are just as stupid or [[HanlonsRazor evil]] as any of the American ones tend to get little or no reaction from him. ** Savagesusie is another good example; the vast majority of her posts relate to [[RedScare Marxism]] and how the various things that she dislikes are caused by a Marxist conspiracy. (Ironically, [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93009 she herself]] [[NotSoDifferent hates democracy]].) * SlipperySlopeFallacy: ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79239 This quote]] posits a scenario that begins with people making hateful comments on the Internet and somehow ends with Christians being fed to lions. ** Also many many quotes that claim that legalizing gay marriage will naturally lead to people being allowed to marry [[BestialityIsDepraved pets]], [[PedoHunt children]], ''plants'', and '''[[CargoShip inanimate objects]]'''. Because apparently informed consent is not a concept that exists in these people's worlds. *** [[HeteronormativeCrusader Scott Lively]] believes that same-sex marriage will necessarily lead to [[MarryThemAll polygamy]], which he [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93236 repeatedly calls "bi-sexual marriage"]]. * SlutShaming: ** [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93901 This school presentation]] by abstinence-only advocate Pam Stenzel. ** Al-Haashim Kamena Atangana wants to [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88556 make it illegal for women to "dress provocatively in the streets."]] Not only does he blame rape victims for the the behavior of rapists, but he also seems to insinuate that [[AllMenAreRapists men instinctively want to rape women]] [[AllMenArePerverts whom they find attractive]]. ** [[HeManWomanHater fschmidt]] says that [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=73705 "sluts destroy civilization."]] * TheSocialDarwinist: Recently there has been an increase in quotes from hardcore [[AynRand Objectivists]] who apparently view poor people as another species entirely and believe in completely eradicating social welfare programs. Others take a more militant approach and suggest we [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86309 actively penalize the poor]]. (Ted Nugent, for example, believes welfare recipients should be [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=91242 stripped of their right to vote]].) * SophisticatedAsHell * StayInTheKitchen: David J. Stewart even [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87333 wrote a poem]] about how women should stay in the kitchen. * StopBeingStereotypical: Some of the site's fanbase are Christians who are tired of the fundies' shit. ** There's also a commenter called Sane MRA that wants to actually get rid of some double standards against men [[note]]such as women more often being given custody of children, men being viewed as more likely to do domestic abuse than women, etc etc[[/note]] and dislikes people who use the MRA label as an excuse to be a HeManWomanHater. * StrawmanFallacy * StrawmanHasAPoint: Whenever fundies try to refute opposing arguments, they wind up [[InvokedTrope invoking]] this trope. [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88377 This]] is probably the most headache-inducing example. * StrawmanU: People on the religious right tend to categorize universities as bastions of [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad political correctness]], [[DirtyCommunists Marxism]], [[StrawFeminist radical feminism]], and [[HollywoodAtheist militant atheism]]. ** Mark Wolling of Stormfront said that colleges [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94071 "are breeding camps the Jews have set up"]] where "glorified black athletes are free to roam and mass rape." He also manages to throw in witchcraft, homosexuality, Satanism, and Free Masons for good measure. * StupidEvil: [[PathOfInspiration FLDS]] leader Warren Jeffs, while he was on trial for [[OldManMarryingAChild sexual assault]], apparently thought it wise to [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=82980 threaten the jury with God's judgment]]. * StupidSexyFlanders: Heterosexual variant: quite a few of the commenters are ashamed of themselves for considering Christine O'Donnell, and occasionally Sarah Palin, to be sexually attractive, when those women have made some of the most ignorant comments on the entire site. * TeenyWeenie: [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=15849 Gonzo, apparently.]] Though we [[TooMuchInformation could have gone our entire lives without knowing that]]... * TemptingFate: -->'''Creedence Leonore Gielgud''': "At least he's not claiming teh gays and Muslims are commies, and are in cahoots." -->'''[=His4Life=]''': "[[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=76829 Creedence, I'll make that claim, and I can show you the uspporting [sic] evidence from firsthand documents as well...]]" * TestosteronePoisoning: The owner of [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90557 The World According to Bob]] believes that manliness and treating women with respect are mutually exclusive. * TheTheocracy: What the fundies, and frighteningly enough [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88136 the Republican Party of Texas]], seem to desire. ** Rep.

Unfortunately, because the USA is so much more populated than the rest of the English-speaking world, a naïve commenter could easily assume that all Americans are like that even though that is not the case. In fact, [[SingleIssueWonk Headache]], if he isn't a {{Troll}}, seems to believe this, as the vast majority of his comments are about how the United States is "the land of the fat and the stupid" and how the American people deserve their country to be ruined because a minority of them vote for fundie candidates. * EarthIsYoung * EatsBabies: Apparently, [[BlatantLies because atheists have no morals]], logically they find eating babies [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=73072 to be a perfectly acceptable activity]]. * TheEndIsNigh: As predicted by [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=81374 Harold]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=81540 Camping]] ''[[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=77849 et al.]]'' * EnemyCivilWar: When one religious nut criticizes another religious nut, expect a commenter to declare "FUNDIE FIGHT!" * EnemyMine: [=His4Life=], one of the fundies often mocked on the site, will join the other commenters in chewing out racists. * EnragedByIdiocy: Very very common among the commenters. * EntitledToHaveYou: [=UnderlyingWrath=] thinks he should be [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88460 "ENTITLED to a European women [sic]."]] ** [=GovernmentsGetGfs=]/coconut, likewise, believes that [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=97478 his government somehow owes him a woman]]. * EvenEvilHasStandards: ** blackmetal84 of Chimpout makes it perfectly clear that hatred against African-Americans is fine, but [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=81091 anti-Semitism crosses the line.]] *** Similarly, Mr. Interlocutor doesn't "harbor any ill feelings to Hispanics or Asians or Native people" even though [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86786 he thinks black people are "sub-human."]] ** Gonzo may be a [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=97097 virulent racist]] but [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=12147 he hates the Westboro Baptist Church]] for harassing grieving families. ** kalki666 was actually banned from Stormfront for [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94948 this anti-Semitic rant.]] That's right.

Not content with butchering science, he has apparently decided to [[ArtisticLicenseLinguistics butcher the English language]] as well, [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=18673 claiming that the words "life" and "faith" are verbs]]. Amongst all the people quoted on FSTDT, Supersport's claims are so unbelievable that on the FAQ, Distind singles him out as someone he still cannot understand, despite years of trying. As of this edit he has been quoted 149 times![[note]]The two are so unbelievably stupid that some have suggested that Cassiterides is Supersport's kid, hoping that there is no way that two people so stupid could exist independently of one another.[[/note]] ** Another contender to the title of "dumbest person on the Internet" is Self-Mutation. He has made such stupid statements as that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83091 a crucifix will not shake during an earthquake]] (because [[ArtisticLicenseGeology earthquakes are caused by the devil]]), that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83092 God is the only reason that the rules of basic arithmetic stay internally consistent]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83118 atheists will not accept the truth of religion no matter how much "evidence" they are given]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83119 scientists refer to science textbooks as Holy Writ, instead of, you know, actually doing the scientific method]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=83161 critical thinking is a religion]] (and that it is a bad thing), that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87136 radiometric dating doesn't work on objects of known age]],[[note]]Just because something was recently manufactured does not mean the raw materials are young.[[/note]] that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87346 God would actively prevent atheists from learning of his existence]], that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87349 China did not exist before the Flood]] even after being '''given the evidence''' that shows otherwise, that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90898 atheists only pretend to be moral "just in case" it turns out that God actually exists]], and that [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90904 babies and small children are evil little hellions who deserve to die if their parents do not believe in God]].[[note]]Also that those children would never have rejected the bad parts of their culture had they been allowed to live -- in the fundies' world, if you were born into a backwards society then there is no hope for you.[[/note]] All things considered, he has been compared to Supersport by more than one commenter. * SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Regular fundie commenter Phillip-George(c)2013, often to the point of being [[WordSaladPhilosophy completely unintelligible]]. * SignsOfTheEndTimes: A favorite subject of the [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=69669 folks]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=69924 at]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79693 Rapture]] [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86011 Ready]]. * SingleIssueWonk: ** Several, but one who comes to mind is baileysmom from Rapture Ready, whose posts are ''always'' rants against gay people. She even derails [[LeftFielder completely unrelated threads]] to take a swipe at them. *** This became so common that at least one commenter decided to post using that name, [[{{Troll}} celebrating]] [[ParentalIncest the (fabricated) child abuse of the eponymous Bailey]]. ** Another example is Headache, a commenter on FSTDT. Inevitably, when an American fundie is quoted, he would ''always'' rant about how the United States of America sucks and how the American people are stupid and have no hope of ever matching the rest of the world in intelligence. He is quite fond of calling the U.S. "batshit insane". True to this trope, he never talks about anything else with the vitriol that he reserves for Americans, and non-American fundies who are just as stupid or [[HanlonsRazor evil]] as any of the American ones tend to get little or no reaction from him. ** Savagesusie is another good example; the vast majority of her posts relate to [[RedScare Marxism]] and how the various things that she dislikes are caused by a Marxist conspiracy. (Ironically, [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93009 she herself]] [[NotSoDifferent hates democracy]].) * SlipperySlopeFallacy: ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=79239 This quote]] posits a scenario that begins with people making hateful comments on the Internet and somehow ends with Christians being fed to lions. ** Also many many quotes that claim that legalizing gay marriage will naturally lead to people being allowed to marry [[BestialityIsDepraved pets]], [[PedoHunt children]], ''plants'', and '''[[CargoShip inanimate objects]]'''. Because apparently informed consent is not a concept that exists in these people's worlds. *** [[HeteronormativeCrusader Scott Lively]] believes that same-sex marriage will necessarily lead to [[MarryThemAll polygamy]], which he [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93236 repeatedly calls "bi-sexual marriage"]]. * SlutShaming: ** [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=93901 This school presentation]] by abstinence-only advocate Pam Stenzel. ** Al-Haashim Kamena Atangana wants to [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88556 make it illegal for women to "dress provocatively in the streets."]] Not only does he blame rape victims for the the behavior of rapists, but he also seems to insinuate that [[AllMenAreRapists men instinctively want to rape women]] [[AllMenArePerverts whom they find attractive]]. ** [[HeManWomanHater fschmidt]] says that [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=73705 "sluts destroy civilization."]] * TheSocialDarwinist: Recently there has been an increase in quotes from hardcore [[AynRand Objectivists]] who apparently view poor people as another species entirely and believe in completely eradicating social welfare programs. Others take a more militant approach and suggest we [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86309 actively penalize the poor]]. (Ted Nugent, for example, believes welfare recipients should be [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=91242 stripped of their right to vote]].) * SophisticatedAsHell * StayInTheKitchen: David J. Stewart even [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=87333 wrote a poem]] about how women should stay in the kitchen. * StopBeingStereotypical: Some of the site's fanbase are Christians who are tired of the fundies' shit. ** There's also a commenter called Sane MRA that wants to actually get rid of some double standards against men [[note]]such as women more often being given custody of children, men being viewed as more likely to do domestic abuse than women, etc etc[[/note]] and dislikes people who use the MRA label as an excuse to be a HeManWomanHater. * StrawmanFallacy * StrawmanHasAPoint: Whenever fundies try to refute opposing arguments, they wind up [[InvokedTrope invoking]] this trope. [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88377 This]] is probably the most headache-inducing example. * StrawmanU: People on the religious right tend to categorize universities as bastions of [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad political correctness]], [[DirtyCommunists Marxism]], [[StrawFeminist radical feminism]], and [[HollywoodAtheist militant atheism]]. ** Mark Wolling of Stormfront said that colleges [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94071 "are breeding camps the Jews have set up"]] where "glorified black athletes are free to roam and mass rape." He also manages to throw in witchcraft, homosexuality, Satanism, and Free Masons for good measure. * StupidEvil: [[PathOfInspiration FLDS]] leader Warren Jeffs, while he was on trial for [[OldManMarryingAChild sexual assault]], apparently thought it wise to [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=82980 threaten the jury with God's judgment]]. * StupidSexyFlanders: Heterosexual variant: quite a few of the commenters are ashamed of themselves for considering Christine O'Donnell, and occasionally Sarah Palin, to be sexually attractive, when those women have made some of the most ignorant comments on the entire site. * TeenyWeenie: [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=15849 Gonzo, apparently.]] Though we [[TooMuchInformation could have gone our entire lives without knowing that]]... * TemptingFate: -->'''Creedence Leonore Gielgud''': "At least he's not claiming teh gays and Muslims are commies, and are in cahoots." -->'''[=His4Life=]''': "[[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=76829 Creedence, I'll make that claim, and I can show you the uspporting [sic] evidence from firsthand documents as well...]]" * TestosteronePoisoning: The owner of [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90557 The World According to Bob]] believes that manliness and treating women with respect are mutually exclusive. * TheTheocracy: What the fundies, and frighteningly enough [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88136 the Republican Party of Texas]], seem to desire. ** Rep.

[[/folder]] [[folder: Tropes V-Z]] * VillainousBreakdown: Many fundies completely lost it after Obama was reelected. ** Seems to have happened again after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_of_Marriage_Act#Text Section 3 of DOMA]] was struck down. * WaterSourceTampering: Any quote about water fluoridation. Most of these are, [[ConspiracyTheorist of course]], in CSTDT. These are some of the more mundane CSTDT quotes. * WeatherControlMachine: Some conspiracy theorists [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90453 believe]] that the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Frequency_Active_Auroral_Research_Program High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program]] (HAARP) was used to steer Hurricane Sandy into the east coast in order to affect the 2012 Presidential election. * WellIntentionedExtremist: [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=75903 James J.

His method, however, was to storm Discovery Channel headquarters, take everyone hostage, and demand that they broadcast [[GreenAesop pro-environmentalist]] [[CannedOrdersOverLoudspeaker propaganda]]. Needless to say, [[BoomHeadshot this did not end well]]. * WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: Racists have a particular hatred for interracial relationships--especially when they [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=85397 involve a white woman and black man]]--sometimes even blaming their existence on a [[YouHaveToHaveJews Jewish]] [[AncientConspiracy conspiracy]]. * WhoShotJFK: ** Tonya Harding, [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=24829 apparently]]. ** Zuleyka Castro [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=86521 believes]] it was done by [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness "the cabal"]]... ** Joe [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88448 suggests]] that it was [[BadassIsraeli Mossad]]. * WindmillCrusader: Just take your pick. * WordSaladHumor: ** [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=11504 Unintentional example]], but you try to figure it out. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=15167&Page=1 This too]]. ** As well as [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=90855 this]]. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=65025&Page=1 And another one.]] ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=75184 This quote]] won the "Word Salad Award". ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=91299 A bizarre quote about Revelation and aliens.]] ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94342 Whatever the fuck this thing is.]] * YellowPeril: Usually on the subject of anime, but this sometimes happens regarding Asians in general, [[MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow especially if it involves an Asian woman in an interracial relationship]]. ** [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94418 "Bring Back The Chinese Exclusion Act!!!"]] * YouAreACreditToYourRace: Happens from time to time. * YouAreWhatYouHate: At least implied by this [[http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=94310 interview between Bryan Fischer and Alan Colmes.]] * YouHaveToBelieveMe: Rapture Ready has a list of things not to do when witnessing. One of the things they think you should ''not'' do is rely on logical arguments, saying that only the Holy Spirit can convince people. * YouMakeMeSic: What a commenter did to [[http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=88009 this]] doozy of a quote from a racist idiot. * YouKeepUsingThatWord * YouNeedToGetLaid: A common response to misogynists quoted on the site. See also DoesNotLikeWomen. * YoureInsane * YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: ** Fundies all too often praise perpetrators of terrorist attacks on mosques and abortion clinics. ** Sadly, the commenters are not immune to this either. D Laurier is vocal about siding with the Palestinians in the UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict, to the point where he even claims that ''Hamas'' is benevolent.
