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 those same strata, we found hundreds of ammonites, some a foot across.  They are reported to grow as large as a house, although I looked and could not find one that large.


Central Texas is Cretaceous Era ... that ancient sea that covered all the central USA and Canada.  Trilobites, ammonites, sharks teeth, gastropods, cephalopods, all can be found in river and stream cuts.  If you go into really deep cuts you can find Devonian Era and there you will find the earliest signs of living matter.

Harry, I found a great site, Trilobite Paleogeography. They show a map of  Pangea supercontinent with the 

Lower Ordovician configuration, which means trilobites formed during that Era in the tropical zone.

The modern version is horseshoe crabs.  They can be found by the thousands, alive, I think it was Chesapeake Bay where I saw them. We lived in Wash DC and went to the ocean.

I sounds like  a pop-up ad.  Try cleaning your cache (browser history)  If that doesn't help then scan it with a spyware scan.  I recommend Malware Bytes.

No, not pop-up.  It is an adv that covers the page, even if I change the page size, and there are no escape buttons.  

I love my computer, but the advs are getting so aggressive and so prolific.  You know, I don't swear, but this has me bolloxed.

are we talking pop-up ads?
Comment by Joan Denoo on March 26, 2011 at 11:44am

I am so FUCKIN mad, I tried to Google "trilobites" and I got an adv. that I could not erase.  I got rid of my TV  because of adv. litter and am I going to have to get rid of my computer as well? 


In any even, I collected hundred of trilobites in central Texas and they are beautiful!  What a wonderful adventure you have planned.  I didn't go there, but I understand Arkansas has some beauties, and Wyoming.  But, the best way to discover where they are is through the search engine that does not dead end you into adv.

Does anyone know where I can take my daughter to dig trilobites? Without having to pay a fortune? Campgrounds nearby? We'd like to find other fossil beds as well. Our summer vacation will be a fossil digging trip, I hope.
