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!

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! :)

Here's something that surprised me.  Viewing the earth from a distance like you were viewing a classroom globe, the depth of the oceans are very thin.  A paper towel could slurp them all up.

Spud, I'm planning on driving to where I can see the total eclipse. I've heard (and tried) photo negatives work well for looking at it. However, I think I've thrown all my old ones away.

In much less than 4 billion years, if humans don't destroy themselves, they will be able to move the earth to a better orbit, or go to some other planet.

Before Earth becomes part of the red giant, it will naturally 'evolve' into a hotter version of Venus. As Sol ages it gradually increases its temperature. Eventually, all the water will boil off. Water is as bad as CO2 fir greenhousing the world. Venus lost most of its water because it had a weak magnetic field which failed, allowing the slar wind to break H2L up ito H and O, and the H promptly floats off. Due in large part to the impact that sheared off the Moon, Earth has a strong magnetic field, which will continue to protect Earth's water from the solar wind, even after it all boils into the atmosphere. The runaway greenhouse will be hotter and faster than Venus; was, and Earth will become even more hellish than Venus.

Just something else you look forward to...

Gary S., I can't wait!

Comment by Gary S on July 27, 2017 at 7:27pm

My admiration and learning of science has told me that the Andromeda Galaxy is going to collide with the Milky Way in less than 4 billion years.  It has also told me that our sun will go through the helium-burning process and turn into a red giant in approximately 5 billion years. So, Earth will become a part of a red giant!

At the Fred Meyer store today, I saw $2 glasses made for watching the solar eclipse.  They claimed to be 100% safe. They were all cardboard except the lenses, and had no side, top, or bottom shields.  I suppose they will work because I looked at the sunlight streaming in the front of the store and saw nothing.

Joan, Brian Cox's parade is much too grand to hide under a brolly and escape the rain.

We electric universe folk have some videos too. They have the advantage that evidence gives them.

To see a few, visit

Ruth, the most pathetic and embarrassing  (not to mention frightening [We are so fucked.]) thing of all is the R science committee cartoon isn't exaggerating in the slightest.
