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! :)

Gary S., I can't wait!

My admiration and learning of science has told me that the Andromeda Galaxy is going to collide with the Milky Way in less than 4 billion years.  It has also told me that our sun will go through the helium-burning process and turn into a red giant in approximately 5 billion years. So, Earth will become a part of a red giant!

At the Fred Meyer store today, I saw $2 glasses made for watching the solar eclipse.  They claimed to be 100% safe. They were all cardboard except the lenses, and had no side, top, or bottom shields.  I suppose they will work because I looked at the sunlight streaming in the front of the store and saw nothing.

Joan, Brian Cox's parade is much too grand to hide under a brolly and escape the rain.

We electric universe folk have some videos too. They have the advantage that evidence gives them.

To see a few, visit

Ruth, the most pathetic and embarrassing  (not to mention frightening [We are so fucked.]) thing of all is the R science committee cartoon isn't exaggerating in the slightest.

That sounds like a good guess Sean.

Comment by Sean Murphy on July 14, 2017 at 10:52pm

I don't know, Wild guess, perhaps they realized that they could save money if they moved it faster (less turnaround time) and in the horizontal position they would be able to move it faster - significantly less wind resistance and no worries about it tipping over from inertia when it starts or stops either.

Whatever the reason, if any public discussion board would have the answer, this one should, so I look forward to finding out!

Does anyone know why SpaceX rockets are moved to the launch site in a horizontal position, then raised to a vertical position, instead of the way NASA does it, which is to move the rocket to the site in a vertical position.

I've searched for an answer, but found none.

Educated cat.
