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! :)

That is something called mythblasters.  Neither Jaime nor Adam would ever say anything like that.

@Mike K re: Mythbusters

At about 2:15, the host asks "who is Jesus to you?"

"He's such a part of my life.  He is that best friend who's with you at any moment.  No matter where I'm at, whaever kind of situation I'm in, I can always turn to him and say, hey, what do I do here?"


I honestly want to know from a psychological standpoint what goes on in a person's head when they say stuff like this.  How do you "turn to Jesus"?

Years ago, I had a subscription to Science News Magazine. It was before computers. I just went to their website and started reading. I noticed that a lot of their source material was from so I went there and I like what I see. Maybe you will too?

Science is only as good as the questions we put to it to answer for us.

SunSaluter Winning Awards Left & Right

Eden and the SunSaluter (being developed by her company, Roseicollis Technologies, now) have won a number of big awards for this ‘simple’ device. As mentioned above, she just won $275,000, in the 2011 Postcode Lottery Green Challenge. She also won $10,000 in the the EcoLiving 2011 Awards a few months ago, and she’s also won a $100,000 fellowship from the Thiel Foundation this year. More on that from Tyler Hamilton of Clean Break:

There is a National Atheist Party group on this site:
have you seen it?

I began reading through the National Atheist Party's charter. It will be nice to see it grow enough that it is listed in voters pamphlets.
