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! :)

Claiming communication to be the purpose of language is like referring to Michaelangelo as an interior decorator.

Sensationalism works in political reporting too.

As my haiku says:
"English, our language,
Has two excellent uses:
Poetry and fraud."

Ah....the sensationalism.

Comment by Grinning Cat on August 31, 2017 at 12:40pm

This could have (also) been in Media Issues...

How Science Reporting Works: (scientist, in lab coat and glasses, being interviewed by a red-haired reporter) “We destroyed ten percent of cancer cells in a lab rat’s tail.” / Newspaper headline: “CANCER CURED” / Scientist: “We didn’t CURE cancer. We’re just moving faster toward a future treatment.” / Headline: “TIME TRAVEL DISCOVERED” / Scientist: “F--K YOU!” / Headline: “SCIENTIST RAPES REPORTER”

Yeah, Sean, and I'm going to stop trolling the troll who's trolling a troll. :-))

I really should stop trolling the troll, but bad habits and all...

Perhaps you should actually do some reading (or watching of PBS educational specials for children of those are more your speed) before you make comments that make you look illiterate. There is nothing "ex nihilo" about any component of the so-called "Big Bang" theory. Perhaps the name confuses you as your voice reader sounds out the mysterious marks on the screen? Nobody actually claims that there was an explosion from nothing, except of course Creationists and other similar revelationists when attempting their weak-kneed straw-man fallacies.

Is that what you were attempting with your ludicrous claim that the Big Bang theory is proposed in Genesis?

Comment by tom sarbeck on August 24, 2017 at 1:38pm
Sean, that 195-page PDF "bible" will require you to do some serious thinking. I hope that in your "old age" you're still capable of it.

Big Bangers have believed their version of the ex nihilo story in Genesis for so long, almost ninety years, that scifi is all they can do.
Comment by Sean Murphy on August 24, 2017 at 11:35am

Sarbek - Downloaded. I've got better things to do then to spend all day reading 195 pages (I'm slowing down in my old age) so I'll read it over time. Looks entertaining, and possibly even thought-provoking, despite how you present it.

Comment by Sean Murphy on August 24, 2017 at 11:29am

Sarbek - So you want me to read your bible? Sure, I'm always up for reading (and critiquing) religious literature. I refuse to drink the Kool-Aid though...

Comment by Sean Murphy on August 24, 2017 at 11:28am

I identified it as an excerpt from a fake eclipse story. Nobody actually said that. But it was believable nowadays, sadly...

(You can also count on coal to release enough carbon-14 over the course of one month to exceed the radiation released by the Three Mile Island incident. Most people don't know that lovely bit of trivia about so-called "clean" coal.)
