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! :)

In my humble opinion, temper tantrums, violent behavior, being out of control are learned behavior and can be unlearned.  I could be wrong, but I have lived with a lot of violent men and as a child I had to learn how to survive; as an older woman I had to learn how to leave and survive on my own.  The strange thing is, the violent men of my younger days seem to be able to control themselves now and have turned out to be great friends. "Trustworthy?" No.  Once trust is lost it does not seem to come back.

Scientists Discover Gene Linked With Violent Behavior

Punk rock legend Henry Rollins, prone to his own violent behavior, hosts a television show that investigates the origins of the short fuse. In “Explorer: Born To Rage,” Rollins and a diverse group of men agree to be tested for what is called “the Warrior Gene.”

Scientists say if the gene is non-functioning in men, they may be more prone to violent behavior.  “Born To Rage” airs at 9pm ET Tuesday on the National Geographic Channel.

The Second law of Thermodynamics is the Ultimate God killer and anyone that tries to argue for God's existence based upon it does not understand Entropy. 

God, in the universe, has an entropy of high order; S=1 or lower order; S=1+. Non existence is as low an entropy there is; S=0. The BB has an entropy of S=1/0 which approaches infinity; S=.000000000000...1 but never S=0. Since God with entropy S=1  has a higher entropy then S=1/0 it can not effect the BB without the use of mechanical device which implies material existence before material existence which is a violation of the second law. God with a lower entropy then the BB would have to have an entropy of S=0 which is impossible since that implies non-existence and thus God does not exist.

But what if God is not within the universe. How can the second law account for his entropy?

It does not mater whether god exists within the universe or not. This does not affect the necessity of his having entropy. If god is in a  state of high order, then he has low entropy; S=1 minimum for existence. If god is not in an ordered state, and thus in a disordered state, he has high entropy and can not effect a lower entropy state. If he is neither in an ordered state nor a disordered state, then god has no properties and thus, HE DOES NOT EXIST!

I came across an argument by a creationist in which I couldn't find any one answer to him. The question had to do with the second law of Thermodynamics and the big expansion. Now there are multiple answers that I've found but I've been unable to determine if any of them are the official explanation by the scientific community. So far, I have gathered that either the expansion itself prevents the violation, gravity prevents the violation, the rule doesn't apply, or Work prevents the violation. Does anyone know which,if any of these are the official explanation and do you know any articles, websites, books, or other source material that I can look into. Thanks.

Hi everybody! New to the group & here learn.I probably won't be commenting much here except to ask questions if I have any.

I remember being good at science in High School,but things have advance and gotten even more complicated since then!

But it still strikes me as funny (and a little sad) that all you need to mop up the floor with creationists is a basic first year Junior High School understanding of Biology.

Your brain on culture
The burgeoning field of cultural neuroscience is finding that culture influences brain development, and perhaps vice versa.
