Welcome!

Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!

We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.

Attention Atheists and Christians: Read.

Let's get one thing clear. I'm a full fletched  Atheist, agnostic/Atheist that is. I cannot claim that I know for certain that there isn't a God, but I lean towards the idea that no, there isn't. I can see the arguments people make in favour of God, I can see the supposed evidence, but again it is my own opinion that there is no solid argument in the case of god/gods/whatever. One thing that annoys the hell of out me, although, is this superiority complex both sides seem to enjoy. 

For example, if a Fundie Christian were to come out, screaming bible quotes and trying to enforce his faith on me, I'd ruddy well bad mouth said person for thinking he has a higher deck than me. That his knowledge is greater, therefore he feels entitled to give me hell. But what some Atheists forget to remember is, they're in exactly the same boat. …

High Scores: A Classroom Model

When I am not writing or out fighting crime dressed as a large marsupial (I'm Koalaman,) I spend my days working in the field of education, and I am fascinated by the way education has changed and how it hasn't. (I have written about it before.) The more I have observed and the more I have researched I have become convinced that if there is a way to fix an broken classroom system it is through the use of video games. Now, I know that sounds crazier than anthropomorphic animal starfighter pilots, but bear…

Bachelor thesis on Nerdfighteria (Questionnaire)

Hello! 

I'm a student at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. Right now I'm in the process of writing my Bachelor thesis in Global Studies, and have chosen the subject of Nerdfighteria. More specifically the purpose of my study is to examine ideas among Nerdfighters about things like society, morals and action for positive change. 



The material for the essay will be a selection of the answers to a questionnaire and six depth interviews with different Nerdfighters (participants in the questionnaire who agree to be interviewed). I would be glad if some of you would answer my questionnaire. Unfortunately, because of research ethical decisions and practical decisions I've had to make, you have to be 21 or over to participate - but I will share my results with all of you here afterwards, if you're interested. 



Here is the link for the questionnaire: …

So to get this started...I was having a discussion recently in which it was brought up that Donald Trump doesn't seem like the likely candidate as someone who would run for president.- winning or not aside- the individual thought there were two major reasons that he would run.reason one:that he is running on the democratic ticket support the democrats by possibly shaming the GOP an then dropping out after the primaries,  which may concentrate the vote towards the democrats. this might make…See More
