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! :)

That is Americans United for the Separation of Church and State.  Not Atheists.

What? Atheists organize?

My kneejerk response: We're too into debating each other and attacking Xianity.

A considered response: We have to do what gayfolk, the most recently successful minority to win elections, did: go public and become better known to people who vote. For a while, we'll have to become known in the campaigns of others; and then ourselves become candidates for and win minor local offices.

And this: be workaholic, or nearly so.

Where do we Atheists get organized so that we can voice our opinions when voting. We need to send a message to the religious right that we will no longer stand for their delusions. We need Atheists in Congress and as President in order for this country to be a leader in science and education. So, as Atheists, and hopefully, scientists, how do we get organized?

science is up against quite the threat; one educated human at a time is all it takes

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.
