"Greatly Increased Odds of Complex Life in the Universe"  states just about everything you can say about the topic.  It's also old news.  Not only that, but how can anyone still believe that our planet is the only in the universe that supports life?

 

Look at all the "dead" topics on Origins, which simply restate a headline.

 

Nothing terrible about making a topic interesting.

So this is a redundant site?

My plan was to post biology-related news items that have broad implications, especially if they reflect on social issues. If I beat Origins to it, it can be discussed here - unless the Gorilla posts its own and ignores priority. 

Sensationalize biology news? Nah. We either contribute or close shop.

This site competes directly with "Origins", the Gorilla in terms of science topics, so just about any topic in the natural sciences can be covered there, including biology.  But biology is now a field that encompasses everything from the beginning of  life, to behavior, to life on other worlds - and since the same person can't introduce the same topic on different sites, you go where the action is.

 

I also find that topics introduced in the form of a question, or which are controversial, or for which there can be no definitive answer, draw the most responses.   Don't you agree?

Well, I tried to prime the pump here on Atheists in the Biological Sciences. This is the first comment since April and the discussions weren't picked up on. Either there are just too few of us, or we all agree about the human condition and, as my mother used to say, "If you don't have something nice to say ...

You are right. More activity would be good.

Right now I'm preparing for a job interview and a PhD viva..... so maybe I'll leave it for a bit.

I don't know if anyone reads this, but I'm very pleased to see that people are starting to get discussions going based on questions they have, or help that they're asking for.

That's exactly the kind of thing the group is for!

I've started a discussion: enjoy.

Or if the subject doesn't excite you: start your own
