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! :)

Titan's atmosphere oddity consistent with methane-based life

This is still speculation, they do not actually know why there is a methane cycle in the atmosphere, but it is a nice short read on the possibility that life which evolved under different chemistry might exist within our own solar system.

Fun article: The Ten Most Disturbing Scientific Discoveries. I particularly find 6 interesting.

I won't normally plug my own blog, but I really want responses to this... it would make me so happy to actually start a conversation dealing with this:

@ Richard: Yes, go to the discussion page and there is a search funtion at the top left. I've asked about this same thing before. You're wanting to know about the Doppler Effect. When a light source is moving away from your point of vision, the lightwaves become stretched out (and thinnned) and therefore shift to the red spectrum. If the light source is moving toward you, the lightwaves become compressed (and widened) and therefore shift to the blue spectrum.
