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! :)

I am amazed at the technique this man uses. It is plain and simply superstition. How can he achieve such credibility when he does not know how to build a scientifically sound, verifiable, repeatable research project? When I do a research project, I am the one who makes it possible to be replicated, verified, and refute the null hypothesis. He did not even include all possible options. Having two options to prove one is a joke and reveals complete lack of scholarly rigor. For the lay public, did you fall for his charade? 

Dishonesty of inteligent design “research”

The 60 c.p.s. of course would be unbearable to listen to and probably would give you a good idea of what the crickets (?) had to put up with at 24 cps.

Comment by Chris G on March 18, 2013 at 6:25pm

That make sense Kolten. I should have read the small print or thought about it rather than taking it at face value. It might be visible at night with lights if the speaker freq was near 60 cps.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 18, 2013 at 12:12pm
Chris G, I had not thought of sound pollution. Of course! I wonder if there is a frequency that attracts wildlife?
Comment by Kolten on March 18, 2013 at 7:48am
It's only visible with a 24 fps camera, not the naked eye. Although there is a variation of the experiment that can be seen with the naked eye, but requires a strobe light.

At first I thought I wouldn't need to use my o-scope because the f-generator has a calibrated dial but after looking up Avian hearing thresholds and seeing frequencies as low as 30 Hz for Great Horned Owls I considered the other wildlife and nixed the idea as a permanent installation. Wildlife doesn't need another noise pollutant.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on March 18, 2013 at 1:20am

PS. Higher frequencies than we humans hear might bother neighborhood dogs.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on March 18, 2013 at 1:18am

Chris, if you also have an oscilloscope you can see your frequency generator's output.

Comment by Chris G on March 17, 2013 at 5:05pm

I have a frequency generator and will do that in the back yard if I can find an cheap weatherproof speaker and it doesn't bother the birds.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 17, 2013 at 2:40am
I like The water + sound video. It would make an interesting bird water fountain, too.
