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! :)

Throughout history, nations rise and fall based on their philosophical foundations. Nations that support flourishing of its architects, artists, commerce, engineers, mathematicians, musicians, philosophers, scientists, and writers flourish.
It is when investigation overrules revelation that innovation can occur. Unfortunately, as Islam returned to revelation for their philosophical foundation and reverted back to Bronze Age mentality, so, too, is USA.

Interesting video Joan.  It sounds like those nasal cells work like stem cells, changing to the type of cell needed to get the dog walking again.

@Tom Sarbeck, I have had the same thoughts about the changes that took place during and since Reagan's administration. One way a clever person might be able to do it is by using Gapminder, but I am not able to make it work. I wrote Hans Roslin the creator of this program to see if I could figure out a way to do it. But got nowhere. Are you good at these kinds of things? 


@ Loren Miller, perhaps you could figure it out. 

I am sure someone can create a graph such as Grinning Cat posted with her graph.

Sorry but that is quite Western oriented;  it leaves out the significant advances made by the Arabian empire (Algebra, anyone?) as well as the Chinese.  The "Dark Ages" only affected Europe.

I like the pic. Thanx, GC.

How do I edit it to show another Dark Age starting in the early 1980s? That was when President Reagan invited the xians to join the Repub Party.

We have white light and white noise.  Can we make white odor?
