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! :)

Love the video, GC!  Very clever!

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on September 11, 2014 at 2:03pm

Yeah, GC. An xian once challenged me to name a benefit of evolution.

To make sure he wouldn't give me a "Yes, but evolution also...." response, I told him a pond scum descendant gave us chocolate.

Science and chocolate: always a good combination!

It was science that turned me away from superstition (religion). Thumbs up.

The True Appliance Of Science

Museum | Indianapolis, IN, USA | Awesome Customers, Math & Science

(I volunteer at a children’s museum in their dinosaur area, where I work in the lab. We work behind a glass window that we keep open so the kids can ask us questions about the bones we are cleaning.)

Every Kid: *completely ignoring me* “Wow! A real dinosaur bone!”

One Awesome Kid: *staring directly at me* “Wow! A real scientist!”

Now we know.  Science triumphs again.

That was a good explanation, thanks Joan!

How Rocks Move, I have wondered about this for a long time. Now we know.

A couple of other notes. Don't get me wrong--I am still interested in what's going on in the world of astronomy. I just don't keep up on the latest like I did when I was teaching the subject. In past years, I would watch the Perseid meteor shower "show". I say that parenthetically because it was always disappointing. The promise of "one per minute" was more like one per 15 minutes. Nowadays, I value my sleep more.

Ruth, this article, White dwarfs crashing into neutron stars explain loneliest supernovae, offers a very nice example of what happens in our sky, far beyond our ability to see. There is so much activity, and interesting new discoveries, it is better than a mystery series. Thanks. I am reposting. 

Tom, the photo by NASA Collapse in Hebes Chasma on Mars, is so clear and beautiful, and to think it has been there all along and we just didn't have the technology to see it. I am so grateful to be alive at this time. I am reposting this as well.
