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! :)

Chuck, my education has been neglected; didn't know about this and the Dude de Ching! ... interesting!

I think I will stick with quantum physics, even if I don't understand it ... however, religious don't seem to understand their dogma either!

@Tom - I know. That was a cheap shot and just rude of me. I know better than to act like an ass (especially to a fellow atheist). I hope you'll accept my apology.

Chick in TN: Gregory didn't blind me with science.

Comment by Chuck in TN on March 14, 2014 at 6:54pm

Gregory - Admittedly, I am quite the lay-person when speaking of science, but I was more than a little surprised when Tom suggested that red-shift was fictitious. In this day and age that sounds a lot like a flat-earth argument to me. Unfortunately, Tom left the group before I had the opportunity to read his last few comments.

Several years ago I read Simon Singh's 'Big Bang' and thought it was very well written for laymen like myself.

Patricia - Haha! That certainly reinforces my opinion that all religions are silly. Yes, even those that worship cats. ;-)

Comment by Chuck in TN on March 14, 2014 at 1:09pm

@ Joan - The only religion that I am interested in is Dudeism and it, like all other religions, is silly too. (but in a good way - IMHO)

Comment by Chuck in TN on March 14, 2014 at 1:04pm

I think Gregory "blinded Tom with science"..........or something.

You can lead a horse to water.......

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 14, 2014 at 12:42pm

Well, I assume you two know what you write about and it is just a bunch of words to me. That is a reflection of my inadeq1uacy, not yours. 

Thanks, Gregory, for reminding of that great video of Krauss and Dawkins. I suppose the science will be explained so that mere mortals can understand it, and I look forward to that time. 

Surely the best explainer is Krauss.

That's funny, I majored in math and physics too, yeah, in fact I BS'd in both. No, actually I went on to PhD in both, and am now a tenured professor at- eh, enough feeding the troll. All I actually have is a BA in Psychology (I lazed out in college), but the Doppler Effect that you demonstrated that you don't understand in your earlier post is grade school science,and is really quite simple.

Comment by Sean Murphy on March 13, 2014 at 8:22pm

True - we don't know. But there is evidence, clues and echoes left behind by those ancient events, and we can derive knowledge from them.
