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! :)

While I have not yet read the article, I know this premise to be ridiculous. First: daydreaming (more properly called reflection, perhaps) is necessary for creativity in the arts and science. Second: how is "happiness" defined? Humans have a range of emotional peaks and troughs, the dynamics of which make life worth living. I will read the article when I have time.

The research on Glia cells is fascinating. And it puts a whole new perspective on the difficulties of modeling the human brain. No model that I know of is even considering the function of the Glia cells in cognition - if they are communicating they are effecting it in some manner.
Good article!

Thanks DG, it looks super fun :D My local library even has copies of it, though they are all being read.

We are going backwards in America and it is painful to see. Soon it'll be like the Dark Ages...

Thank you Dallas. That was a great video. I don't know where you find such things.

I haven't heard anything.

The only way that letter could have been anymore amusing/tragic is if it were written in crayon.

Honestly, I feel sorry for the children he referenced.

Wow. That letter to the editor is forehead smacking stupid. I would love to see the responses.

In every other species, individuals who chose not to face reality disappear from the genetic pool, I guess the price of our enlightenment is to deal with fools.
