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! :)

Tom - Did the search. After Ken Hovind, found this on Quora:

The key point is that we don't really know about the time prior to t=1 second. The Big Bang Theory does, however, make a lot of sense for the following 13,800,000,000 years. Its basic tenets are unlikely to be overthrown whatever happened in that first second.

In the beginning there was Genesis which exploded. That's how we got the talking snake. Imagine a god who wanted to tell his buddy Moses (or whoever it was) "How He Did It" by having him write a book. Reality went out the window at that point.

“To write, you must read extensively, both inside and outside your chosen genre and to the point of overflow”.

Sir Terry Pratchett (Novelist, Science Fiction writer)

Make that "Bangers claim gravitation explains space."

Comment by tom sarbeck on April 24, 2017 at 11:18pm

Sean, Bangers claim gravitation only in space.

The solar wind's ionized atoms, an electric current, falsifies their claim and the Bang.

Bert, search on "nothing exploded"

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on April 24, 2017 at 9:45pm

I haven't seen them.

Comment by tom sarbeck on April 24, 2017 at 9:37pm

Bert, have you seen any of the longer versions of Pratchett's line?

At least one version nicely satirizes both Genesis and the Bang.

Comment by Sean Murphy on April 24, 2017 at 6:59pm

So instruments meant to measure the solar wind are somehow proof that there was no Big Bang? And if I turn on my windshield wipers, does that (by the same logic) therefore prove that the Dodo is actually not extinct?

@Tom - Truth (if there is such) be damned; you've set me up too nicely not to do this:
