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! :)

Question: If the polar ice melts will that generate changes in tectonic plates, increasing earthquakes and volcanic eruptions?

I like Gates and I like China - but then again they are both very powerful - so......

I just read 

Gates discussing new nuclear reactor with China - Yahoo! News

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates confirmed Wednesday he is in discussions with China to jointly develop a new and safer kind of nuclear reactor.

What is your take on this?  Can nuclear power be made cheaply and safely, without risk during earthquakes, tsunamis and without weapons grade material as a by-product? How will spent fuel be disposed?
