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! :)

Science FTW!  This is my favorite subject and I love all kinds of science.  Science is sexy!

It does sound like good news, Ann with an e.

As someone with the BRCA1 mutation I applaud this decision. Myriad's patent prevents others from researching this gene, and keeps out other tests available outside the US. It's my gene and my mutation, they can't own it. (unless they pay us a licensing fee :-) )

Yeah, they can still use the isolated genes, but I think they made the right decision regarding the patents. You could really limit availability for medical treatment and research if they were patented.

Wow, excellent, thanks!

Fractal Fun. It isn't as easy as it seems to "measure" a length of string.

I don't know, Joan.  I think I would love to have a pumpjack through my grave:)

Creepy, Joan. What a surreal image.
