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! :)

Tyson didn't mention another service NASA performs. It keeps highly trained technical people off welfare. More people will acquire the training and America will have people to design the weapons for future "defense" needs.

What? Me cynical?

Remember when all those farm boys and girls came home from WW II and took advantage of the GI Bill? Out of that investment came unimaginable wealth. We didn't plan to develop any one sector, we just knew we owed these young men and women for their services. And we paid them in the best way possible .. make education available for those who were able and willing take advantage of the opportunities. Some didn't take the opportunity and wondered why their skills did not match the developing needs for technical skills, whether in science, health care, education or whatever. Those who accepted the opportunity were able to develop their natural talents into something very valuable. Prosperity and development resulted. Those GI Bill recipients are dying off now, and do we have the minds and skills to replace them? Do we?  
We have a lot of bright young people who know how to scam the financial markets. Do we have the engineers, doctors, scientists, inventers?

TNT666, I agree there are unmet needs in the USA. education, health care, infrastructure, jobs. When the government needed money to bail out the banks (which meant giving disgusting salaries and bonus to some and job losses to others) our necessary programs were cut, taxes were lowered on the wealthy, social services were severely cut, and you know the litany of awful things. Our leaders decide and our voting public elected people who care more about money that people or the planet. We think buying yachts and mansions, and fancy cars are more valuable that caring for starving, sick, young, elderly, out of work wage earners. We haven't even diverted spending money on oil, which includes going to war for oil, to renewable, sustainable energy sources. We have't even been able to find ways to lower CO2. We should get on our legislators and executive and judicial branches and demand change, if not in policies and practices, then in changing to other leadership.

Neil deGrasse Tyson argues very convincingly that we can't afford not to fund NASA.  I like his final statement: "As Goes the future of NASA, so too does the future of this nation."

Comment by TNT666 on March 18, 2012 at 2:30pm

Any amount of NASA spending is a disgrace IMO! There is so much spending required here on earth to fix the mess we've made.

Neil deGrasse Tyson argues that we can afford NASA.

he he
ID wouldn't even fit into a pseudoscience table! I had a local guy rant to me last year about how an Italian had discovered a form of energy that would solve all the world's energy problems... I looked at this guy, who I'd been working with for a few weeks, with dumbfounded eyes and was thinking... no... you are not saying what I think you are saying... you cannot be THAT dumb... you're a nice decently intelligent guy... I THOUGHT. But he did, he was saying that crazy Italian physicist faking nuclear fission was going to revolutionise the world. I asked: nuclear fission? that stuff has yet to be demonstrated.

I've not spoken to him since, or I'd end up insulting him. ID is oodles farther even from any respectable realm of thought :)

Oops. My bad. :P

Comment by TNT666 on March 11, 2012 at 4:54am
