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! :)

Storms on one side and storms on the other side we could just all move to the center of the country. No, wait a minute don't we have a super volcano sitting under Yellowstone Park. So much for the land of milk and honey. I guess this means we are all going to die someday. I feel so unprepared. Any body got a valium?

The difference betwen God, Santa Claus, and Humpty Dumpty is all in the mind

Here's a new study of brain activity of Christians who were either praying (i.e. a personal prayer), reciting the Lord's Prayer, reciting a nursery rhyme, or making wishes to Santa Claus.

What they found was that, unlike the other activities, personal prayer lit up sections of the brain that seem to be connected normal social interactions. It activated so called 'theory of mind' processing.

In the graphic shown, they're looking specifically at a region of the brain (the temporo-parietal junction) that is thought to be involved in figuring out why people are behaving the way they are.

Read the rest on Epiphenom.
