Whether you're a professional, a student, an amateur, an enthusiast, whatever! Lots of atheists love science. Might as well have a group for it!

Feel free to nerd out, link articles, talk about your favorite field of research, whatever!

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! :)

2000 degree solar power is interesting.  I subscribed.

Yeah, it's fun and it appeals to and at least emotionally persuades many young people.

And then we have nerds. I first heard of e=mc2 in a college physics class and set out to explore it. Having been in the Navy, I calculated the energy in a pound of matter to be adequate to lift the battleship Missouri many miles high.

I think it essential to show kids what fun science can be--whether by music or  math. If we'd done so, the anti-science xianity we know would have died early.

Symphony of Science celebrates E=mc2

Joan, I've watched some of it, and will watch all of it when I get a new internet service provider that doesn't charge me extra for watching videos.

Seth Lloyd on Quantum Life

No reason quantum physics should be shunned, it begins to look understandable, even as it makes no sense to intuition.

There were three rafts full of Sierra Club folk. The other two were down river and unable to paddle back against the current. Each raft had two professional oarsmen and ours tried to paddle us out but the eddy current turned us back into the eddy. We used everything we had that would serve as paddles and got up enough momentum to get out.

We paddle-powered purists would have been embarrassed to have a motor-powered raft tow us out. I think the fear of embarrassment energized us.

One oarsman had panpipes and played them at night. What sounds they made! One nurse was ecstatic when she realized she hadn't touched soap for a week.

Connecting the Neural Dots

As with all things scientific, there are benefits and perhaps hazards. Let's hope we concentrate on solving problems, not making another way to control and dominate people.

Spud, isn't this an amazing thing! I have never heard of this before. 

Tom, getting caught in an eddy must be an adventure. Were you ... afraid? I think I would be terrified.

While floating the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon about 40 years ago, I was one of about 15 people on a paddle-powered raft that got caught in a large eddy. Getting out of it wasn't easy.

The trip was ineffable (too great to be described in words, which implies a second use for "effable").
