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! :)

Every year New Humanist magazine opens the polls to decide who will receive the prestigious Bad Faith Award. Each year, the person deemed by the voters to have made the most outstanding contribution to the cause of unreason. 2008's winner who, with 33% of the vote, was the hands-down victor in a field of nine contestants, was Alaska governor and vice-presidential nominee, Sarah Palin.
More here (including the list of this year's nominees and how to cast your vote).

Adam Carolla interviews Dr. Bruce, spends the first 20 minutes bashing idiots like Jenny McCarthy, telling her to "shut the fuck up". Good times.

The assertion that science requires as much faith as religion is first, and foremost, false, but furthermore an affront to thinking and objective observation of the accumulated facts. Facts, that have gradually built up in one particular direction, to the chagrin of apologists the world over. Like evolution, we are where we are by the gradual accumulation of things that work, in an atmosphere of things that don't.

COOL! (to continue the rhyming theme!)

Astronomers creating 3D map of the universe

Team hopes that the map can help in the hunt for more data about mysterious dark energy

Considering how quick conspiracy nutters are to jump on any little/remote piece of evidence in order to support their claims, I think it's relatively reasonable to say they would have said something before 23 years had gone by.

@Aiden--I'm not sure how critical it is regarding how long the intelligentsia have known about a thing (for instance--I just learned of it on this thread!). The timer begins from when the morons in the conspiracy theory nut-house find out about it.

@Boothby

I would doubt that, considering we've known about Cruithne since 1986.

@Boothby: I think your two week estimate is a rather generousness one.

@ Stephan: I know how I made the mistake. I saw the second animation of the orbit and completely missed the point. I think I will blame the cats for this one, they were distracting me with cuteness and the need to sleep at the time.

I give paranoid schizophrenics two weeks before this becomes the next "Planet X"
