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! :)

I just finished 'Demon Haunted World' last month. Incredible book. I was surprised I had not stumbled upon it earlier.

I'm reading Demon Haunted World, by Carl Sagan, right now. If anyone wants to mentally high five yourself, pick up a copy of this book! He was a great human being!

Does the disappearance of time have anything to do with fucking magnets? Because it sounds like it could be related.

Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History | What does it mean to be human?

About the Human Origins Initiative
The past decade has seen astonishing discoveries about human origins that captivate the imagination. We walk on two legs, make tools, and have large brains. We solve complex problems and communicate through language and art. We express our feelings and our spirituality. How did we acquire these extraordinary qualities? Are we still evolving or are we ‘it’, the endpoint of the evolutionary story?

These questions excite the deepest levels of human curiosity about our own identity and origins, and help shape one of the most awe-inspiring areas of scientific inquiry. ‘What does it mean to be human?’ – the theme of the Human Origins Initiative of the Smithsonian Institution – reflects one of humanity’s most profound quests. The initiative’s goal is to explore the universal human story at its broadest time scale. It seeks to stimulate new research findings that deepen an understanding of what makes our species unique and how we came to be.

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History is committed to expanding the public understanding of human evolution:

• An unforgettable museum experience presents the epic story of human ancestry.

• Pioneering research investigates fundamental questions about our evolutionary past, including the roots of human adaptability.

• Innovative educational programs meet the critical need for expanding public knowledge of scientific research and evolution.

Our web site is dedicated to bringing you the excitement, latest findings, and profound implications of the scientific exploration of human origins.

Mike, thanks for that video. I started watching it and then go pulled away, but I hope to get back to it soon.

TerraDaily.com: New Hypothesis For Human Evolution And Human Nature

It's no secret to any dog-lover or cat-lover that humans have a special connection with animals. But in a new journal article and forthcoming book, paleoanthropologist Pat Shipman of Penn State University argues that this human-animal connection goes well beyond simple affection.

Shipman proposes that the interdependency of ancestral humans with other animal species - "the animal connection" - played a crucial and beneficial role in human evolution over the last 2.6 million years.

Moral Camouflage or Moral Monkeys?

After being shown proudly around the campus of a prestigious American university built in gothic style, Bertrand Russell is said to have exclaimed, “Remarkable. As near Oxford as monkeys can make.” Much earlier, Immanuel Kant had expressed a less ironic amazement, “Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe … the starry heavens above and the moral law within.” Today many who look at morality through a Darwinian lens can’t help but find a charming naïveté in Kant’s thought. “Yes, remarkable. As near morality as monkeys can make.”
