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! :)

I think this will be heralded as a giant leap forward for "man":

I also enjoyed this. I went through it but I intend on going back and spending more time with this. I was interested on the part where we was down to 10,000 at one point. I actually heard 2500 on another site. Scientist think that this most likely thinned out all but the very smartest and strongest which gave us a big boost to becoming the people we are now. I sometimes wonder if we don't need thinning again.

I just sent this to my dad. Very interesting nad perfect for a visual learner such as myself.

What a great link JayBarti, thanks! I remember I used to think that as a kid too, that scientists were all "mad" and had crazy hair and mixed stuff in test tubes. But then I realized both my parents are scientists (and now I am one) and we're all relatively normal, just slightly more curious :)

Who's the Scientist?
Seventh graders describe scientists before and after a visit to Fermilab.

Today is Alan Turing's birthday: mathematician, computer scientist, helped break the German Enigma Code in WW2. He was an Atheist. He was gay.

If you are looking for interesting science news, I recommend bookmarking or RSSing Nobel Intent from arstechnica.

Thanks JayBarti!

Titan's atmosphere oddity consistent with methane-based life

This is still speculation, they do not actually know why there is a methane cycle in the atmosphere, but it is a nice short read on the possibility that life which evolved under different chemistry might exist within our own solar system.
