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! :)

There are some very nice people who want children but who have genetic conditions that result in their children not surviving even to birth, let alone to adulthood.

Here, a woman gave her daughter beliefs that might result in the girl's not making it in life.

In the first case, Ma and Pa Nature do what they do. In the second case, the girl's mother did what she did. Life goes on.

I am retired from teaching. One year I got a new student in my class who had been home schooled the previous year. Her mom told me all of the things she had taught her daughter including astrology!

I found it remarkable evidence of one breathtakingly ignorant home teacher. Tammy's post dismays me so much in many ways, including the fact that the particular mom's ignorance was/is not remarkable at all.

How daunting it feels right now to arouse the public about the reality of global warming if they start from this kind of knowledge base as big $$$$ propaganda swirls around them reassuring them it is nothing to worry about and no action is needed. Arrrrgh

Thanks guys!

Rebekah, I was going to point you to Science Based Medicine also. Best source of info I've found on vaccines, unless you want to read a book. Paul Offit's book is the one I read recently, so you might be able to look up his articles to see if he mentions those ingredients in particular online somewhere.

I want to try to explain to a non-medical person the negligible amounts of formaldehyde and Triton X in the flu vaccine I give. Are there other everyday things anyone can point me to, that a non-vaccinated person might get similar exposure or worse? So I can explain that the vaccines aren't full of chemicals? Thanks for your help!
