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! :)

A friend of mine suggest that someone should make a buddy cop movie starting Neil deGrasse Tyson and Michio Kaku.

Isn't Lake Vostok just microorganisms though? I expect those everywhere, hehe. 3-inch shrimp is a different matter if the life is truly independent of a marine source.

Woah no way!!! That is so cool!! I am going to show this to my mentor, he'll love it! Thanks again!! It begs the questions: what about in Europa's subsurface ocean? What about Enceladus' geysers? However the food source for these shrimp is a mystery- I can't imagine why they didn't sample the water and check for zooplankton? Or perhaps the shrimp somehow live off detritus, otherwise it's not impossible that there is some deep inlet from the Ocean- 12 miles isn't a lot and they only sampled a tiny hole. They can't completely rule out the possibility of there being no link to open water, as cool as it would be for these guys to be living independently of a marine source. Sorry to rant, that's brilliant though.

Thank you for the article, Dallas! Very interesting and I look forward to seeing the results of that marine sediment coring expedition. I bet there are anaerobic bacteria making up a giant layer of the ocean floor. Some people in my lab are working on marine sediments in the Arctic, very cool work :) Thanks again, going to repost this on my page.

Hugh, that was great - since I know the tune it was easy to follow. If only Rita Rudner was singing it with a carrot.

A caring god would not have designed us like this -

"...Our genome is an unmitigated mess. The replication and repair mechanisms are inadequate, making mutations commonplace. The genome is infested with parasitic DNA that often wreaks havoc. The convoluted control mechanisms are prone to error. The huge amount of junk, not just between genes but within them, wastes resources. And some crucial bits of DNA are kept in the power factories - mitochondria - where they are exposed to mutagenic byproducts. "It is downright ludicrous!" declares John Avise, an evolutionary geneticist at the University of California, Irvine..."

Time for some Shameless self promotion.

If you guys are interested, the Ferris State Rube Goldberg team spent two weeks in Japan building a machine for a t.v show called Spring of Trivia (roughly translated), and I have some videos up on my youtube channel.
