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! :)

Fractal Fun. It isn't as easy as it seems to "measure" a length of string.

I don't know, Joan.  I think I would love to have a pumpjack through my grave:)

Creepy, Joan. What a surreal image.

Greg, several years ago I visited my grandmother Denoo's birthplace at Kinzua, PA, which is now under water from the dam. We also went to burial sites of family ancestors and coming out of one of the graves was an oil "grasshopper", you know the pump, I guess you call it. But right out of the grave. We don't know if they emptied the grave first, or not, but the gravestone stood where it should have ... but seeing that oil pumping machine where the body should have been just made me ... disgusted. Couldn't they have at least drilled down on the pathway?

Clarence and Greg, I am with you on water issues! Aquifers simply must be protected ... once gone many will not be restored because the water is called "fossil water"; it is the remnant of the melting Ice Age. We must be up-to-date on the science of fracking, mining, drilling, and all other threats to clean, drinkable water.

To Joan Denoo.
Objectivism does not conflate well with one issue politics.Moreover, Rational self interest is an ethic which does not own the patent rights to mutually assured destruction. Is fracking shale for gas destructive to aquifers? It appears to be. Are there other energy technologies able to quell our appetite for energy? What patents have been granted for such applications and where is the lobbying money for its implementation coming from? Can corrupt political systems claim technical competence with respect to the stewardship of planets?

I love watching Dinosaur train with my son, it is a show on PBS.  After each show a paleontologist named Dr. Scott talks to the kids about the episode they just saw.  I think I have a crush on him!  I like when adults talk to children about science and evolution.  Dr. Scott Sampson is a Canadian dinosaur paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and educator who serves as Research Curator at the Utah Museum of Natural History, University of Utah.  We need more shows like this for children.  My son is 4 and I have started talking to him about evolution which is so much better than the xtian nonsense I was hearing when I was his age (fear and indoctrination).  My main goal is for him to stay an atheist who loves science and learning.  However, if he finds "god"  I will try to be ok with it. I just wanted to share :)  Check out his page!

Almost all of our federal legislators are corrupt

Almost all?!?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 20, 2012 at 3:19pm

And, let us be aware that public money spent on bringing oil shales across the US has a consequence, many consequences. 
1. Risk of contaminated aquifers that are fossil aquifers and will not be replenished until the end of the next ice age, if the Earth survives that long.
2. Increase of dirty substances from burning dirty oil shales and increasing the greenhouse effect.
3. Delaying the development of petroleum alternatives with sustainable, renewable energy sources.
4 ...need I go on?
