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! :)

The Atheist Foundation of Australia works against science and it is frustrating! Comments on their "philosophy" make statements about how the mind works which contradict peer reviewed papers. Not sure why but I have written about my frustration with it here:

Here is another active geologic zone, this time in the Aleutian Basin.

My goodness, this is an active geologic zone. We know that with the weight of the ice leaving the poles, the plates will be responding to the shift in weight. Time to take a look at all the tectonic plates.

Planet 9, we know you're out there and we will find you! Unless you're not, in which case, disregard this message!

More evidence for the very likely existence of planet 9:

Bert, Kreutzer proved my point; one use of language is fraud.
Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 31, 2017 at 5:14pm

Claiming communication to be the purpose of language is like referring to Michaelangelo as an interior decorator.

Sensationalism works in political reporting too.

As my haiku says:
"English, our language,
Has two excellent uses:
Poetry and fraud."
Comment by Patricia on August 31, 2017 at 2:22pm

Ah....the sensationalism.

Comment by Grinning Cat on August 31, 2017 at 12:40pm

This could have (also) been in Media Issues...

How Science Reporting Works: (scientist, in lab coat and glasses, being interviewed by a red-haired reporter) “We destroyed ten percent of cancer cells in a lab rat’s tail.” / Newspaper headline: “CANCER CURED” / Scientist: “We didn’t CURE cancer. We’re just moving faster toward a future treatment.” / Headline: “TIME TRAVEL DISCOVERED” / Scientist: “F--K YOU!” / Headline: “SCIENTIST RAPES REPORTER”

Yeah, Sean, and I'm going to stop trolling the troll who's trolling a troll. :-))
