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! :)

Spud, NASA is reacting to probable budget cuts. They want Congress to continue giving them taxpayers' money.

NASA book shows how Space Station research offers "Benefits for Humanity". http://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-book-shows-how-space-station...

Yep. I used to do that on a pc. It roasted. Now i get no little x since I am using a galaxy 3 android phone in phone mode. It seems to work better in the microsoft phone browser though; and not Chrome either.

I repair my sometimes egregious errors by:

1) selecting and copying the text (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C for DOS users),

2) deleting the post via the tiny X in the upper right corner,

3) pasting the copied text into a new comment box (Ctrl-V), and

4) editing as required and adding the comment.

I'm getting some problems with seeing the type i set here. I will watch more carefully now that i have seen the results.

Tom Sarbeck:
I think nature and the things within it's locus have properties that can to a large degree be seen, felt, heard, or ascertained in some manner. Children and adults may suffer privation but it is no likely from nature which offers abundance. The rich bounty of our oceans are being decimated not by nature but by Fukishima. Philosophical defaults that lead to a non-failsafe nuclear power plant (multi) at that site would where blame for suffering should rest.

Clarence, I hadn't thought of Catholicism as the foundation of my atheism but I now see it really was.

I told many people that during its long history its leaders had devised answers to some hard questions, and for me to leave it I needed replies that would prevent my later return from either a personal crisis or "my deathbed".

What nuns or priests had described as heresies (i.e., the Pelagian heresy) I later saw were questions that merited better answers than dogmatic rejections.

For instance, in The Big Bang Never Happened, author Eric Lerner said Pelagius and his disciples had taught that the world’s pains and diseases were the result of nature’s laws and not punishment for sin. Catholicism, if it was to survive, had to call Pelagius an enemy.

Hi Tom. In my family it was my mom who instigated the trips me and my siblings made through Catholic school. I was thr first and only one besides my mom to make it through 12th grade in that kind of an "institution". You would think this would give me more in common with my mom as a result of rhe shared experience. While she accepted their dogma as defining the human condition; i found it to be the foundation of my atheism.
