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! :)

Wow. That letter to the editor is forehead smacking stupid. I would love to see the responses.

In every other species, individuals who chose not to face reality disappear from the genetic pool, I guess the price of our enlightenment is to deal with fools.

I've had about 4 letters published in the Dallas paper over a period of years. All have been about animals though, not science.
Comment by A Former Member on August 18, 2010 at 8:55am
Well think about it. If a paper has a particular view on a topic, the editor has the power to publish good letters in support of that view, and bad letters opposing it. I'm not suggesting that is exactly what happened here. This is TN, after all. But here in Dallas, the Dallas paper will sometimes publish completely asinine letters that you know they know are crap, but they publish them anyway. Why? I suspect it is to allow people to see how stupid some people can be. But that is just conjecture, of course.

@Dallas: Ever the optimist....
Comment by A Former Member on August 18, 2010 at 8:40am
I know! At first I thought it was satire, but it didn't seem so by the end. However, sometimes I think newspapers publish such nonsense on purpose, just to show how stupid some people can be.

How embarrassing for Knoxville... and Tennessee... and the United States... and humanity.
Comment by Bryon on August 17, 2010 at 11:19pm
wow...seriously? This was actually published? In an actual news paper? How embarrassing for the news paper...
