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! :)

Ain't that the truth.

Tom, thanks for the lead to STEM. I can't believe I didn't know about this site. It looks like I am going to have some interesting reading. 

Patricia, I like the information about Sun-like star J1407. 

Grinning Cat, about the Beall's List of Predatory, Open-Access Publishers by Jeffrey Beall, this list is comprehensive. When my former husband earned his dental degree it was enough to practice, but he had to go for his boards to become Board Qualified and then board Certified. If a dentist was Board Certified, there was an asterisk behind his or her name. If they were Board Qualified, there was half an asterisk. This group was called "Half Ast" by their colleagues. We need something like that to determine the quality of the journal. I could not possibly remember all the titles, just in my field of applied behavioral science.

Nice, Ruth Anthony-Gardner  - medicine that actually works is something that will never cease to amaze me either.

A list that's unfortunately necessary: Beall's List of Predatory, Open-Access Publishers -- companies that masquerade as publishers of respected journals, but are actually vanity presses, printing articles for virtually anyone who'll pay their high fees, with sham or nonexistent "peer review".

Quite fascinating AND endlessly remarkable.

And costly beyond measure.

We Yanks have to provide opportunities for people trained in STEM (science, technology, etc).

Without a supply of such people, our war-making powers would atrophy.
