Since when do mathematicians have anyone to dump?
BAM! I’ll be here all night.

Hemant Mehta is the chair of Foundation Beyond Belief and a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. He began writing the Friendly Atheist blog in 2006. His latest book is called The Young Atheist's Survival Guide.
Dammit, Hemant, I was gonna make that joke.
It’s funny that you’re reading lots of the same comics I read.
I think Danica probably has had a few to dump in her time…
Eh, don’t get me started on Danica. She might have written some math books to help middle school girls, but she’s otherwise wasted her life on crap acting jobs like cartoon character voices, SyFy Channel movies and “Inspector Mom.”
“Wasted her life”? What, for working?
Plenty of mentally mediocre actresses could have played the roles Danica took for the trash put out by the SyFy Channel and Lifetime. High-IQ people like Danica have no business wasting their potentials on this nonsense when they could attain hard but useful goals which lay beyond the abilities of the world’s dumbasses.
Pretty harsh advancedatheist! What if she likes being an actress? Does that count for anything?
And, doesn’t her exposure as an actress give her a forum to reach and potentially influence the (as you call them) world’s dumbasses?
Maybe, but she’ll have a hell of a hard time getting a job in academia. Math departments don’t like pretty girls – at least not in tenure-track positions.
So you’re saying that all tenured/tenure track female professors are ugly. Congratulations. You just insulted half the women in my family.
Man, and they say we religious folks are judgmental. Yeesh.
…and don’t forget to tip your waitress!
I”m looking for my next girlfriend by induction over N.
Better stick to your day job.
…because you’re awesome at it!
Say, where are all the people who complain about posts that aren’t about PURE UNDILUTED ATHEISM?
Well according to math, 1+1+1 = 3. But for Christians, 1+1+1 = “1″. So I’m sure, math leads to atheism
I think that removing the nouns that the quantifiers modify does tend to misrepresent the claim, no?4 quarters = 1 dollar looks a lot more rational than 4 = 1, for example. Obviously, the Trinity is counterintuitive and mysterious, but it is not a mathematical contradiction.
OK, let’s do a complete version of each, with full specification of the units involved: 4 × ¼ × dollar = 1 dollar
Looks good to me, for the rationality side. Now let’s look at the superstition side: 1 god + 1 god + 1 god = 1 god Still YARF (Yet Another Religion Fail).
The failure of logic on your part is equivocating the word “is” with an equal sign. For example, if we do so, then Jack is an evil man, and Jack is an Arab, would mean evil man = Jack = Arab, which would lead to the conclusion that evil man = Arab, which is nonsense. In the same way, one cannot treat “is” as an equals sign as you have done above without committing willfully ignorant slips of illogic.
WHERE’S THE ATHEISM?! How dare you waste 15 seconds of my time with something you think is funny!
As a conventionally attractive lady mathematician, I am offended by your insinuation that -
Hahahaha. Just kidding. Forever alone.

He’s making a “replacement.” see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integration_by_substitution
A whole new meaning to the term +1…
He better watch out, or she’s going to reduce him into partial fractions.
