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! :)

@ 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.

The Geron Corporation, huh. Sounds a bit like "The Umbrella Corporation" (although most won't get that reference). Extending telomeres has been theorized to extend cell life, but really nothing has been proven!
