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! :)

In the name of the "love of science" turn on CBC Television right now and watch a very good analysis of the "expert myth"

... experts in economy and management, WHICH ARE NOT SCIENCES, and whose experts are NOT

... experts in nutrition (for all those who insist on posting miracle health cures here) who are NOT, and nutritionists who have meaningless diplomas.

Characteristics that qualify people to be "experts": Height and the watch they're wearing!

An excellent investigative piece, with Ben Goldacre, a wine-maker-expert-debunker, and various other critics and debunkers.

Full episode available on this site for Canadians, for others, I don't know: The Trouble with Experts

One of the show's best lines: Experts are the new priests/shamans... and they lie just as much!

That seems to be the way the Science news cycle works.  I'd laugh if I weren't crying.

There are some very nice people who want children but who have genetic conditions that result in their children not surviving even to birth, let alone to adulthood.

Here, a woman gave her daughter beliefs that might result in the girl's not making it in life.

In the first case, Ma and Pa Nature do what they do. In the second case, the girl's mother did what she did. Life goes on.

I am retired from teaching. One year I got a new student in my class who had been home schooled the previous year. Her mom told me all of the things she had taught her daughter including astrology!

I found it remarkable evidence of one breathtakingly ignorant home teacher. Tammy's post dismays me so much in many ways, including the fact that the particular mom's ignorance was/is not remarkable at all.

How daunting it feels right now to arouse the public about the reality of global warming if they start from this kind of knowledge base as big $$$$ propaganda swirls around them reassuring them it is nothing to worry about and no action is needed. Arrrrgh
