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! :)

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

I really should stop trolling the troll, but bad habits and all...

Perhaps you should actually do some reading (or watching of PBS educational specials for children of those are more your speed) before you make comments that make you look illiterate. There is nothing "ex nihilo" about any component of the so-called "Big Bang" theory. Perhaps the name confuses you as your voice reader sounds out the mysterious marks on the screen? Nobody actually claims that there was an explosion from nothing, except of course Creationists and other similar revelationists when attempting their weak-kneed straw-man fallacies.

Is that what you were attempting with your ludicrous claim that the Big Bang theory is proposed in Genesis?

Sean, that 195-page PDF "bible" will require you to do some serious thinking. I hope that in your "old age" you're still capable of it.

Big Bangers have believed their version of the ex nihilo story in Genesis for so long, almost ninety years, that scifi is all they can do.

Sarbek - Downloaded. I've got better things to do then to spend all day reading 195 pages (I'm slowing down in my old age) so I'll read it over time. Looks entertaining, and possibly even thought-provoking, despite how you present it.

Comment by Sean Murphy on August 24, 2017 at 11:29am

Sarbek - So you want me to read your bible? Sure, I'm always up for reading (and critiquing) religious literature. I refuse to drink the Kool-Aid though...

Comment by Sean Murphy on August 24, 2017 at 11:28am

I identified it as an excerpt from a fake eclipse story. Nobody actually said that. But it was believable nowadays, sadly...

(You can also count on coal to release enough carbon-14 over the course of one month to exceed the radiation released by the Three Mile Island incident. Most people don't know that lovely bit of trivia about so-called "clean" coal.)

Sean, when you have done all the name calling your beliefs require of you, go to and download the free PDF file.

"You can count on coal 24/7. You can't always depend on the sun!"

~ Major Joseph Calvin, Media Coordinator, Kentuckians for Coal.

Excuse me!? You can count on coal to fill the air with acrid smoke, to leave behind huge piles of rocks and dirt from mining the coal, miners suffer from diseases caused by coal dust even as they risk their lives to get it out of the ground. It is a non-renewable and non-sustainable fuel that stokes global warming. Coal mining lays waste to landscapes, leaving behind contaminated, undrinkable water. 

The sun does none of these things.

Astronomers have been observing snow on Mars for over a hundred years. Whether it was water or carbon dioxide was impossible to determine nor did anyone seriously consider that some of it might be water.

As for the troll, Sarbeck - Volcanism has already been observed on other worlds in this solar system, and multiple photographs have been taken of it. I know I'm feeding the troll, but c'mon - you seriously don't believe in volcanism? Or orbital mechanics that have been observed and confirmed over and over for literally hundreds of years?

Time already HAS told, dumbass.

Comment by tom sarbeck on August 22, 2017 at 12:10pm
Snow, of the frozen water variety, on Mars?

"It happens on Earth, or we can hypothesize it. Identical processes therefore happen on planets and the bodies that orbit them."

Spud, the claim doesn't surprise folks who follow the claims Bangers make without evidence, such as
1) volcanism on bodies that orbit the planets, and
2) gravity's pulling space objects into radially-directed paths as they approach Earth.

Time, and the end of taxpayer subsidies, will tell.
