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! :)

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=how-critical-think... It was amazing, but not surprising.  What was surprising was the little dig at Americans at the end.  Ha!

What happens when you wring a wet wash cloth out in space (zero gravity)? See video

Ruth,

I just read the article in your link. This is certainly something to watch with interest. It  shows that an overall warming causes unexpected consequences due to the complexity of the climate systems. Colder surface water that freezes more easily due to melting of ice, deflectling cold briney water that would otherwise sink. There must be quite a velocity to the water movement to impede the salty water sinking. All very interesting. Thanks for the post.

The southern branch of the thermohaline circulation is faltering! This is a major climate change tipping point. See my discussion in Eco-Logical.

Sim-Kidney Makes Real Urine video

Scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital have successfully bioengineered a kidney chimera by animating donor organs using stem cells.

I have lived 77 years and seen some remarkable things. I wonder what my great-grandchildren will see?

Dominic, well and powerfully stated. "Not understanding god's plan" presents a cop-out if it stops the exploration for causes, prevention, and treatment. Believing in a personal god just makes no sense, especially if one thinks some god favors one over another, or one species over another. When the assumption is human beings stand at the top of a hierarchy, and everything else must submit to the pleasures of man implies hubrus beyond common sense.
