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! :)

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.

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.
