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! :)

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.

My buddy's wife asked him the $100,000 question when their son came home with a C in science.

I have written a blog post that talks about "life" from a couple of different scientific points of view. If you're interested, you can read more about it here.

On this wandering/distracted mind topic (and happiness) there is the broad topic of "multitasking", which is flourishing, and how it affects on us.

There are lab experiments that show that distracting people reduces the capacity of their working memory and thus impairs their decision making. At least for high cognitive tasking.

It’s much harder to show that multitasking outside of dfficult tasks and when it results from the choices and control of an individual as in directed daydreaming fantasies, does such cognitive harm. Multitasking dan be a distraction from our main activity, but some argue that it is what evoluton has given us as a main activity. It may be a safety value for boring task and perhaps too much of work has become boring for too many. The big new player is distracting folks is email, social media and the like. This may fill a gap in people's needs.


Of course our distractable attention can be targeted for commercial, political and personal gain and misused.

I wonder what finding that planet in our galaxy that is within the habitable zone of it's star will do the Drake Equation?

Can you two take it to private chat? Thanks.

Lead ions are a lot heavier than just hydrogen ions, but still the temperature is so hot you get a sticky soup of gluons. So cool!
