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! :)

@Cane
that's how the FSM was born!

The highlighted molecule seeming to fly out of the dividing cell represents a fluorescent protein called “MiniSOG” that scientists are beginning to use to refine their electron microscope images.

Air pollution tied to stroke, memory loss
Studies recommend that the EPA reconsider the upper limits of what is an acceptable amount of pollutants.

"WTF is wrong with the VA legislature. electorate?"

Little is seriously wrong with the VA electorate unless they let that whacko remain in the legislature.

After all, voting doesn't guarantee that we get good leaders; it guarantees only that we can get rid of them without assassination.

Here is that amendment to the Oklahoma personhood bill:

"...provided, however, any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman's vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child."

WTF is wrong with the VA legislature. electorate?

Everybody who isn't a right wing religious wacko should vote.

 

The Oklahoma personhood bill is intentional humor. 

About My 'Spilled Semen' Amendment to Oklahoma's Personhood Bill

By Constance Johnson, Guardian UK

10 February 12

 

s a woman and a 31-year veteran of the legislative process in Oklahoma, I am increasingly offended by state law trends that solely focus on the female's role in the reproductive process. With Oklahoma's new, never-before-experienced Republican majority, we are seeing enactment of more and more measures that adversely affect women and their rights to access safe medical procedures when making reproductive healthcare decisions.

My action to amend the so-called "Personhood" bill – SB 1433, introduced by Senator Brian Crain (Republican, Tulsa) – represents the culmination of my and many other Oklahomans' frustration regarding the ridiculousness of our reproductive policy initiatives in Oklahoma. I have received overwhelmingly positive responses from men and women in Oklahoma – and worldwide. The Personhood bill would potentially allow governmental intrusion into families' personal lives by policing what happens to a woman's eggs without any similar thought to what happens to a man's sperm.

Have fun with the idea of VA adopting the determined ignorance of fundamentalist xianity, but someone will do the arithmetic and realize that if the bill becomes law the state will go broke.

Let's have a contest: ask people to describe the strangest law a fundamentalist-influenced state legislature could pass.

Or, there being a number of strangely-named communities in America (like Intercourse Pennsylvania), we can identify a community and describe the strangest law their council could pass.

You perhaps heard of what an Oklahoma legislator did when a member introduced a personhood amendment (a just-fertilized egg is a legal person and entitled to the law's protections). She introduced a bill that would make male masturbation a crime because it would waste potential life.

Wow, what a Bill! Much worse than I was even anticipating.

Julie, I love your second paragraph.
