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! :)

Hugh, that was great - since I know the tune it was easy to follow. If only Rita Rudner was singing it with a carrot.

A caring god would not have designed us like this -

"...Our genome is an unmitigated mess. The replication and repair mechanisms are inadequate, making mutations commonplace. The genome is infested with parasitic DNA that often wreaks havoc. The convoluted control mechanisms are prone to error. The huge amount of junk, not just between genes but within them, wastes resources. And some crucial bits of DNA are kept in the power factories - mitochondria - where they are exposed to mutagenic byproducts. "It is downright ludicrous!" declares John Avise, an evolutionary geneticist at the University of California, Irvine..."

Time for some Shameless self promotion.

If you guys are interested, the Ferris State Rube Goldberg team spent two weeks in Japan building a machine for a t.v show called Spring of Trivia (roughly translated), and I have some videos up on my youtube channel.

L.A. museum being sued for not showing anti-evolution film.

On it's Vimeo page, the American Freedom Alliance bills itself as a non-political, non partisan, movement of concerned Americans which identifies threats to western civilization. Currently, one of the threats to western civilization they are most concerned with is the cancellation of a screening of Darwin's Dilemma, an anti-evolution documentary, by Los Angeles's California Science Center.

So they're alleging that their freedom of speech was denied due to pressure from the Smithsonian Institute and the scientific community... And they're suing.

More here.

You really should check out their page on Vimeo. These guys remind me so much of the John Birch Society that I was surprised they haven't also come out against the fluoridation of water and Communism in the State Department!
