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! :)

The assertion that science requires as much faith as religion is first, and foremost, false, but furthermore an affront to thinking and objective observation of the accumulated facts. Facts, that have gradually built up in one particular direction, to the chagrin of apologists the world over. Like evolution, we are where we are by the gradual accumulation of things that work, in an atmosphere of things that don't.

COOL! (to continue the rhyming theme!)

I don't know who wrote this, but it is in response to the discovery of Saturn's new ring. - DG

When Galileo told the Pope
“Here, look into my telescope—
You’ll see much beauty there, I hope.”
His Holiness, the Pope, said “Nope.”

“Now kiss my ring, instead, and swear
That nothing of the sort is there—
I know you think it is not fair,
But I’m the Pope, as you’re aware.”

The Pope’s command was quite absurd,
But Galileo gave his word,
(Though some report him undeterred:
“E pur si muove” overheard.)

In hindsight now, with great delight,
We know, despite his Papal might,
That evidence would come to light
To prove the heretic was right.

With Urban’s ring already kissed,
The chance to get it right was missed,
Just one more error on the list—
But now, we find another twist!

What wonders will the cosmos bring?
Now Saturn sports another ring!
Much bigger than the Pope’s, this thing
Is interplanetary bling!

Four centuries have come to pass
Since Galileo ground his glass;
Far too much time for him, alas,
To tell the Pope to kiss his ass.

But now, the kids will learn in school:
That Saturn sports another jewel;
That telescopes are really cool;
One may be Pope, but still a fool.

Astronomers creating 3D map of the universe

Team hopes that the map can help in the hunt for more data about mysterious dark energy

Considering how quick conspiracy nutters are to jump on any little/remote piece of evidence in order to support their claims, I think it's relatively reasonable to say they would have said something before 23 years had gone by.

@Aiden--I'm not sure how critical it is regarding how long the intelligentsia have known about a thing (for instance--I just learned of it on this thread!). The timer begins from when the morons in the conspiracy theory nut-house find out about it.

@Boothby

I would doubt that, considering we've known about Cruithne since 1986.

@Boothby: I think your two week estimate is a rather generousness one.

@ Stephan: I know how I made the mistake. I saw the second animation of the orbit and completely missed the point. I think I will blame the cats for this one, they were distracting me with cuteness and the need to sleep at the time.

Damn your right, that will teach me not to post stuff when I am tired. Doh
