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! :)

For those who love geology, I found an illustrator that offers images to help understand the geologic process. She is Jenda Johnson and here is one of her illustrated pieces:

As to, " intelligent people are more likely to use the analytic style"  i.e. critical thinking. 

And, oh! yes! guano improves production in the vegetable and flower garden as well!!

By the way, what is graphene? Oh,

graphene: "an allotrope of carbon in the form of a single layer of atoms in a two-dimensional hexagonal lattice in which one atom forms each vertex."

For a good laugh read the first page of Will Any Crap We Put into Graphene Increase Its Electrocatalytic Ef...

A Reddit comment: "Just for some context, Martin Pumera is a well-known researcher who tirelessly debunks a lot of magical properties of graphene in electrocatalysis. So this is more of a call for better science rather than a strictly scientific paper. Nevertheless he actually shows, that yes, guano did improve the electrocatalytic effect by the standards of the "bad science"."

Paywalled meta study confirms that intelligence correlates negatively with religiosity. 

The Negative Intelligence–Religiosity Relation: New and Confirming ...

 ... the new analysis showed that the correlation between intelligence and religious beliefs in college and noncollege samples ranged from −.20 to −.23. There was no support for mediation of the IRR [intelligence–religiosity relation] by education but there was support for partial mediation by analytic cognitive style. Thus, one possible interpretation for the IRR is that intelligent people are more likely to use analytic style (i.e., approach problems more rationally).

It's frightening, Ruth.

Watch CO2 accelerate in the atmosphere. (click on the chart to make the animation start, it starts slowly) 

The data, without animation.

I learned about geology when In high school and minored in it in my undergraduate training. I lived and studied in WA State and didn't learn about these finds until reading recent literature and research. WA State has quite a remarkable geologic history, one far more entertaining than most, and now available to the person who enjoys following the studies and visiting the sites.
