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 it is: HB1207:

http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?121+sum+HB1207

Right of students to assert conscientious objection to any requirement of an academic degree program in an institution of higher education; liability.  Provides that no public or private institution of higher learning may penalize or deny academic credit to a student because he refuses to perform academic coursework because it would force him to violate a sincerely held religious belief. The bill also provides that the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia shall not recognize any accrediting agency that takes any adverse action against an institution of higher learning that exempts students from academic coursework for such reason. The Attorney General or any student, prospective student, or former student aggrieved under the bill may bring a civil action against the institution of higher learning, the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, or the relevant accrediting agency for damages, injunctive and declaratory relief, and any other relief authorized by law and may be entitled to reasonable attorney fees.

Matt,

Which bill?

Here's the listing: http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?121+sbj+022

with all the wacky bills being proposed around the US, this one somehow slipped past me:

 

— A bill in Virginia would make it illegal for state colleges to require a class that conflicts with a student’s religious views. Critics say that would enable a student to receive a biology degree, for example, without studying evolution if he or she objected to it.

 

so a student could become a Biologist without having studied Biology's foundational tenant?  good grief.

cyber ' warfare? as real as an ID theft:
At one point in the tape, a British detective can be heard saying: "We're here to help. We've cocked things up in the past, we know that."

Mike Malloy reminded me of the Cow abduction story. see more at http://www.cowabduction.com/ copyrighted by the California Milk Processor Board. I can't tell if this is a parody.
