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! :)

Could this catching robot be the answer to space debris?

Have you seen Mars lately? Big, bright, red, high in the eastern sky at 10PM. Lunar eclipse Apr 15, I think.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 27, 2014 at 5:37pm

Egyptians gave up cats for gods, no magical qualities there. The Greeks gave up Zeus, he couldn't make things happen through magical powers, nor could Jupiter and Juno. Along came the Abrahamic faiths, one after the other, killing each other and trying to control each other. Well, so much for religion. Maybe a good dose of reality, critical thought, effective and efficient action is needed.

Let's get those religious mythologies out of our government and start practicing sound decision making.

Joan's "Dudeist" is, of course, a caricature of the famous Vitruvius "proportion of the human figure". Leonardo of Vinci  is usually given credit for it with his rendition. I'll spare you the details.

Chuck in TN, apology accepted.

Without some occasional enthusiasm, life would be dull.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 16, 2014 at 12:00am

Chuck, my education has been neglected; didn't know about this and the Dude de Ching! ... interesting!

I think I will stick with quantum physics, even if I don't understand it ... however, religious don't seem to understand their dogma either!

@Tom - I know. That was a cheap shot and just rude of me. I know better than to act like an ass (especially to a fellow atheist). I hope you'll accept my apology.

Chick in TN: Gregory didn't blind me with science.

Comment by Chuck in TN on March 14, 2014 at 6:54pm

Gregory - Admittedly, I am quite the lay-person when speaking of science, but I was more than a little surprised when Tom suggested that red-shift was fictitious. In this day and age that sounds a lot like a flat-earth argument to me. Unfortunately, Tom left the group before I had the opportunity to read his last few comments.

Several years ago I read Simon Singh's 'Big Bang' and thought it was very well written for laymen like myself.

Comment by Chuck in TN on March 14, 2014 at 6:30pm

Patricia - Haha! That certainly reinforces my opinion that all religions are silly. Yes, even those that worship cats. ;-)
