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! :)

Whatever that is, it looks pretty awesome :D

That's pretty much correct. We know the phenomenon of gravity, but don't really know what causes it. Relativity describes gravity as a property of the curvature of space-time itself. String theory describes it the way it does all other fundamental forces, as the result of the exchange of virtual particles called gravitons. To date the two views have resisted all attempts to reconcile them.

Hard to tell from an article, without reading the actual papers, but I can't put my fingers on how they could reconcile that theory with our understanding of time as dimension of space itself. How can a universe "run out" of a dimension? As far as my amateurish understanding of physics goes, time only breaks down at quantum level or at singularity level. Dark energy sounds far more likely to me.

F***ing magnets! How do they work?

I think this will be heralded as a giant leap forward for "man":

I also enjoyed this. I went through it but I intend on going back and spending more time with this. I was interested on the part where we was down to 10,000 at one point. I actually heard 2500 on another site. Scientist think that this most likely thinned out all but the very smartest and strongest which gave us a big boost to becoming the people we are now. I sometimes wonder if we don't need thinning again.

I just sent this to my dad. Very interesting nad perfect for a visual learner such as myself.

What a great link JayBarti, thanks! I remember I used to think that as a kid too, that scientists were all "mad" and had crazy hair and mixed stuff in test tubes. But then I realized both my parents are scientists (and now I am one) and we're all relatively normal, just slightly more curious :)

Who's the Scientist?
Seventh graders describe scientists before and after a visit to Fermilab.

Today is Alan Turing's birthday: mathematician, computer scientist, helped break the German Enigma Code in WW2. He was an Atheist. He was gay.
