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! :)

Scientists encounter prejudices and conservatism of other scientists and the public only to be found accurate, sometimes decades later. Current disputes about weather change, political change, economic change and religious change all reveal present challenges represented by people who want to conserve the status quo and who are unwilling to look at evidence for what it can tell us. Here are just a very few and very important paradigm changes taking place right now. 

 

Alexander Fleming’s discovery of penicillin changed the way disease is treated.

Edward Jenner discovered a vaccine for smallpox that killed one in three of those who caught it and badly disfigured those who survived.

http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/edward_jenner.htm

 

Louis Pasteur, building on the work of Edward Jenner, discovered germs that transformed medicine and pasteurized milk was named in his honor.

http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/louis_pasteur.htm

 

Robert Koch worked on anthrax and tuberculosis (TB) and further developed the work of Louis Pasteur.

Joseph Lister discovered the link between lack of cleanliness in hospitals and deaths after operations. For this reason, he is known as the ‘Father of Antiseptic Surgery’.

Christian Barnard performed the first open heart transplant.

J Harlen Bretz interpreted evidence of water flow that created the channeled scablands of Eastern Washington. He was roundly lampooned and criticized because there was no sign of sufficient water to create such a flood. Geologists and biblical scholars cited it as evidence of The Biblical Flood. In 1940, Lake Missoula, an Ice Age lake the size of Lake Michigan, defined by geologist Joseph Pardee, explained the evidence.

Speaking of science and secular content - we need science links: we have created an easy as heck to navigate website with all the content on one page. It consists of FREE films, books, videos, links, etc. for those who need a good dose of science, logic and reality. Go to http://www.charliescrusade.org. please help.  Thanks.

Very cool wind map Ruth!

Comment by Barbara Walker on March 31, 2012 at 12:13pm

Sara- Hello - Just happy to have found your site. I am very busy with work and my business, but science always keeps me interested.

Wind Map

...visualization designers Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg have crafted something truly awe-inspiring from it. Wind Map pulls in hourly data from the National Digital Forecast Database, tracing wind speed and direction in near real-time while providing nationwide maximum and average figures. The result is something remarkably similar to NASA's Perpetual Ocean video, only Wind Map is an interactive, zoomable, and constantly changing project.
