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! :)

Simple chemical process that may have led to the origin of life on Earth

Research has shown that reactions of alpha-hydroxy acids, similar to the alpha-amino acids that make up modern proteins, form large polymers easily under conditions presumed prevalent on early Earth. These alpha-hydroxy acid polymers may have aided in the formation of living systems on early Earth.

I concur with that Orwell pic Ruth.

Another Heartland Institute Bullet Point.

* emphasize that we are pro-science and pro-environment… and the other side is not

I don't think Joseph Bast knows what science is. He never did finish his bachelor's degree. 1976-1984: undergraduate, University of Chicago (incomplete degree(link is external))

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 18, 2017 at 10:29pm

Bullet point from Heartland Institute "Red Team Briefing" on Trump administration of a Red Team – Blue Team exercise on climate change.

* fundamentally challenge, reform, or replace the National Academy of Sciences, the source of much pseudoscience.

@Sean

I left out the link to the page which contains the quote. Sorry about that. Here it is:

Vangelis - what was the context? Without the context of the statement, there is no way to speculate meaningfully as to what was meant by the statement.
