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! :)

Because I love science, technology, and space exploration, this video brought tears to my eyes.  

It's a very well made video about the building of the next great telescope that in 2 years will be placed a million miles from earth and be 100 times more powerful than the Hubble telescope.

I liked a post from Nancy Atkinson.  Here are a few quotes from her:

“Space exploration brings out our best.”

“With space exploration, our desire to answer fundamental questions about our place in the Universe can not only help to expand technology, but it helps us look at things in new ways and it seems to help foster a sense of cooperation, and – if I may – peaceful and enduring connections with our fellow humans.”

“Space exploration offers an incredible example of cooperation.”

“Space exploration brings out a sense of inclusiveness. Many of the Apollo astronauts have said that when they traveled to other countries following the missions, people around the world would say how proud they were that “we went to the Moon.” It wasn’t just the US, but “we humans” did it.”

“Space explorations expands our horizons, feeds our curiosity, and helps us finding all sorts of unexpected things while helping to answer profound questions like how did the Universe begin? How did life begin? Are we alone?”

Interesting.  Someone had a bead on global warming 104 years ago.

1 year and 5 days from now, some of us in the USA will get to see a total eclipse of the sun.  Here's a map showing the locations and times. Click on it to embiggen.

Rahm Emanuel: White House Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama. He served on the board of directors of the federal mortgage firm Freddie Mac at a time when scandal was brewing at the troubled agency and the board failed to spot "red flags," entire board was later accused by the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) of having "failed in its duty to follow up on matters brought to its attention." Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Illinois's 5th congressional district, chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee during the 2006 mid-term elections. chairman of the Democratic Caucus, member of the New Democrat Coalition. Noted for his combative style and his political fundraising abilities

He articulated his view on the role of government as a positive force to face difficult challenges and solve national problems, notably combating global warming through green energy policies and completely restructuring the healthcare system. Citigroup executive at the center of the current meltdown. 

Chris Dodd:  #1 recipient of Fannie Mae contributions

Larry Summers who pushed the repeal of the Glass-Steagal Act, 

Tim Geithner who masterminded the bank bailout, 

Robert Rubin, a disgraced Citigroup executive at the center of the current meltdown. 

Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States from 1987 to 2006.


This flock of financial, banking, monied individuals do not look like a balanced cloud of advisors to me.

Immediately after his election, and again to my horror, Obama let go his progressive advisors, leaving him nesting with a brood of neocons.  

No wonder 2007-8 came so quickly.
