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! :)

Bert, search on "nothing exploded"

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on Tuesday

I haven't seen them.

Comment by tom sarbeck on Tuesday

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 Monday

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?

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on Monday

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

Comment by Idaho Spud on Monday

Thank you Neil and thank you Ruth.  Excellent talk.

Thanks also for the post about that interesting hot gas stream called Steve.

Comment by tom sarbeck on Monday
Note that the European Space Agency sent ELECTRIC FIELD instruments to measure the HOT STREAM OF FAST-FLOWING GAS.

Steve is another nail in the Big Bangers' coffin; they refuse to call it plasma, an electric current, like the stuff we see in a fluorescent lamp or neon tube.

The ESA did not send gravity field instruments; they sent electric field instruments.

Tyson: "It's in our hands to...."

It's in Tyson's hands to blow the whistle on the Big Bang religion.

It's in our hands to SUSPEND JUDGMENT before we accept without evidence what the Bangers tell us.
Comment by Bertold Brautigan on Sunday

So god did create Adam and Steve!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on Sunday

"New" kind of sky light phenomenon studied. It's named Steve.

Aurora photographers find new night sky lights and call them Steve

Testing showed it appeared to be a hot stream of fast-flowing gas in the higher reaches of the atmosphere. The European Space Agency (ESA) sent electric field instruments to measure it 300km (190 miles) above the surface of the Earth and found the temperature of the air was 3,000C (5,432F) hotter inside the gas stream than outside it. Inside, the 25km-wide ribbon of gas was flowing at 6 km/s (13,000mph), 600 times faster than the air on either side. Relatively little else is known about the big purple light as yet but it appears it is not an aurora as it does not stem from the interaction of solar particles with the Earth's magnetic field.
