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! :)

Hey all -- thought you might like to see this new show.

 

The Discovery Channel is hosting a new program, Curiosity, that aims to provoke thought and discussion and ask the “fundamental questions facing the world today”. Their first episode (Sunday Aug. 7th, 8 p.m. ET/PT) will be a special with the eminent Stephen Hawking titled, “Is There a Creator?”

I could not be happier by the recent Texas Board of Education decision.  My "faith" in the process has been restored a little.

I'm from Texas and I was glad that the Board of Education in Texas didn't cave into the demands of the religious and chose to teach evolution instead of adding intelligent design to the textbooks.

I have actually never heard of Mole Day! As an engineering student, I am absolutely dorky enough to know of Pi Day, although I have never participated in any actual festivities.
Comment by Atheist Andrea on July 14, 2011 at 7:07pm
Anyone here geek enough to celebrate Mole Day or Pi Day? Just curious.

Seriously people, the religionists are now winning!  Vote for Option 3, and keep Ohio from having a election day voting sticker that calls upon God!

How Science Will Shape Human Destiny

From the archives – How will the fields of medicine, computers, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, energy production and astronautics change our lives in the not-too-distant future? We talked in April with Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at the City University of New York and author of the new book “Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100″ (Doubleday, 2011).

Listen here.
