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! :)

he he
ID wouldn't even fit into a pseudoscience table! I had a local guy rant to me last year about how an Italian had discovered a form of energy that would solve all the world's energy problems... I looked at this guy, who I'd been working with for a few weeks, with dumbfounded eyes and was thinking... no... you are not saying what I think you are saying... you cannot be THAT dumb... you're a nice decently intelligent guy... I THOUGHT. But he did, he was saying that crazy Italian physicist faking nuclear fission was going to revolutionise the world. I asked: nuclear fission? that stuff has yet to be demonstrated.

I've not spoken to him since, or I'd end up insulting him. ID is oodles farther even from any respectable realm of thought :)

Oops. My bad. :P

Comment by TNT666 on March 11, 2012 at 4:54am

ahem... cuz it's not a science.  The table's about real science gets corrupted... not religious fakers :)

Comment by Sarah Walton on March 11, 2012 at 2:34am

I note that ID education is a glaring omission from the table.

Comment by Sarah Walton on March 11, 2012 at 2:30am

Thanks TNT666! I shared that widely.

Something any non science trained atheist needs to understand: Science is not immune from corruption and political manipulation. Without scientific training or scientific research skills, it can be quite difficult to know the difference between truthful and science and lying science. This table might help a bit:

Dear Rational Robot. Your link would have been better posted as a discussion than a comment, because my reply is now disconnected from it. I don't buy France-Presse's argument that "history shows that science can thrive alongside religion" when the only evidence given is

"By their senior year, 79 percent said they don't see a conflict, but a collaboration model instead."

presumably based on a survey at one or a few schools.

Also his claim that "A perceived conflict between science and religion has led Americans to rank nearly last among industrialized countries in understanding evolution." had no evidence at all. Religious opposition to science, including evolution, doesn't get off the hook for terrible US science eduction by suggesting that if we only collaborated with religions our science education would advance light years. This makes no sense to me at all. Just because 79% of seniors at some school imagine that science and religion can peacefully coexist, doesn't make it so on the broader stage.

The body is the shape of a Soviet F1 Hand Grenade, made out of the sturdy Tusk2700T resin. The metal parts are created from silver, complete with an operational trigger mechanism that begins the recording process. “I wanted it to look elegant, a bottle of high-class perfume, as much as a weapon,” said Oliver in an interview with We Make Money, Not Art.

includes a computer with a microphone and powerful wireless antenna that captures network traffic and audio in a location and anonymously streams it to an external server that mines it for information — including e-mail excerpts, web pages, images and voice. The server then uploads that data to a public website and positions it on a map.
