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! :)

How embarrassing for Knoxville... and Tennessee... and the United States... and humanity.

wow...seriously? This was actually published? In an actual news paper? How embarrassing for the news paper...

I just finished 'Demon Haunted World' last month. Incredible book. I was surprised I had not stumbled upon it earlier.

Does the disappearance of time have anything to do with fucking magnets? Because it sounds like it could be related.

@Dallas: No, it just means spacetime will curve upon contact with mass, since it cannot permeate through it. That, however, is just speculation on my part. I only have a high-school knowledge of physics :)
@Mike: Well, that was just a guess on my part. Truth is, we still don't know exactly what makes up the spacetime fabric, so why mass distorts it is anybody's guess. :)

Umh, the only two massless particles we know of are photons and gluons. Rather than being matter, they are carriers of different types of forces - electromagnetism and strong force respectively. Photons, however, do have a relativistic mass. Roughly put - and as I understand it, hence I might be wrong - photons acquire mass at relativistic speeds, which means they are affected by gravitation.

Space-time distortion causing mass, sounds weird to me. No, it is definitely mass that distorts spacetime. You can say that spacetime's inability to penetrate atomic nuclei might be the fundamental reason why spacetime is distorted upon contact with mass, but you still need said mass to produce a distortion.

Rather than being a property of mass I suppose it's an intrinsic property of the spacetime fabric. We don't really know what spacetime itself is made of, but whatever it is made of, it probably cannot penetrate atomic nuclei, hence bending under their mass. That's just my two cents, of course :)

Looks like a rocket to me.
