Whether you're a professional, a student, an amateur, an enthusiast, whatever! Lots of atheists love science. Might as well have a group for it!

Feel free to nerd out, link articles, talk about your favorite field of research, whatever!

I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

A causes B all the time - What will this mean for Obama? - BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS -> ...and caught on... -> LOCAL EYEWITLESS NEWS - A: KILLER AMONG US?? - 'What you don't know about 'A'... can KILL YOU!

I get the same problem as Joan, I seem to go around in circles trying to fix it.

Comment by Michael Penn on August 18, 2015 at 6:50pm

Google that problem, Joan, and you will find an answer for it. I. E. copy and paste not working, 2 copies of a post, etc. Usually it's a simple fix.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 18, 2015 at 5:46pm

Tom, I wish that correcting a mistake using your method worked for me. My situation is that when I copy and paste to a new post, I can't get the paste to work. It used to work. There is also a gremlin that copies a copy and repeats it at the end of the post. I call this the "echo". Sorry folks, hope you aren't confused by my posts!

Spud, NASA is reacting to probable budget cuts. They want Congress to continue giving them taxpayers' money.
