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! :)

The why is there. It is simply replication that drives the process, without that need you die out, even if you a molecule.
It starts with simple molecule is a catalyst for replicating itself and slowly the molecules become more and more complex. Why did a molecule form that could replicate? Well it is like winning the lottery, keep trowing organic molecules together eventually someone going to win. The chance of nobody ever winning the lottery are slim. The chance me winning are also very slim, in other words most molecules don't replicate.
The questions science is asking now is what are those odds, and what kind of mix did we start out in. The how, not why.

The fact that science doesn't know WHY life exists is not a problem for me. 50 years ago, they didn't know what DNA was. That fact didn't make the science up to that time any less true. I'm not going to do a 'God done it' just because we don't have the answer...yet. Not known is not unknowable.

THAT is disturbing. I was speaking to one of my college educated medical professional colleagues, who was commenting on Michael Shermer's book about people believing strange things. When she saw the chapter about Creationism, she remarked "Creationism is a fallacy?"
I replied "yes", she said "that makes my head hurt" and changed the subject. It is difficult for me to believe that people who have had to take biological science courses can STILL believe in Creationism!

I can't wait for this Doc to arrive, I have been hearing about missing links all my life, its wonderful when we find them and even more wonderful when we understand them. I love evolution & Historical archeology documentaries, when well done the insight you can glean about deep history/prehistory is fascinating.
