Welcome to the group for biologists on Athiest Nexus.

Researchers, students and interested individuals should feel free to get involved and to start discussions on whatever topics interest you.

There's already an Anti-creationist group on Atheist Nexus, you might be interested in joining that group, too!

There's also a group for People who love science

Thanks Dylan -- I'll check that out.

Hi all.


I read an article in Scientific American on speciation and it provides a web-link to

which provides a fun college freshman-level overview of evolution, if anyone is interested.

That sounds awesome... I don't have cable :( We just have a few basic channels.

Hey all -- thought you might like to see this new show.

The Discovery Channel is hosting a new program, Curiosity, that aims to provoke thought and discussion and ask the “fundamental questions facing the world today”. Their first episode (Sunday Aug. 7th, 8 p.m. ET/PT) will be a special with the eminent Stephen Hawking titled, “Is There a Creator?”

To those who love microbes and cartoon humour. A shameless push towards my microbe cartoon blog :)

Roughly 1 in 8 of high school teachers whom teach biology in the United States teach it from a creationist stance.  Personally I don't care how a person squares their religion with evolution.  But I don't for a second agree with this religious bullshit that some theists constantly seek to interject into the classroom.  Evolution is a fact for all intents and purposes when discussing it in common parlance.

I don't think there are very many biologists who have serious doubts about the ubiquitousness of life in the universe.

Sorry, "Increased Odds."  My mistake.

Tripling the estimate of the number of stars in the universe is not old news. Not only was that number increased, but red dwarf stars are long-lived and stable. This impacts the Drake equation and that's always a popular game.
