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! :)

Thanks DG - for both links!

This should start up the free will vs determinism, classical vs quantum mechanics debates again: UCSB Physicists Show Theory of Quantum Mechanics Applies to the Mot...

Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have provided the first clear demonstration that the theory of quantum mechanics applies to the mechanical motion of an object large enough to be seen by the naked eye. Their work satisfies a longstanding goal among physicists.

The problem with string theory, is the same with Multiple Universes,
there is no way to test the theory false. The same is said for the God concept. Maybe God is sleeping and created the human comedy for his wife's amusement?

Yes, for the theoretical physicist String has color and imagination.
It also has more solutions to its equations than cat has hair strains.
So it is not science and more metaphysics.

A friend of mine suggest that someone should make a buddy cop movie starting Neil deGrasse Tyson and Michio Kaku.

Isn't Lake Vostok just microorganisms though? I expect those everywhere, hehe. 3-inch shrimp is a different matter if the life is truly independent of a marine source.

Woah no way!!! That is so cool!! I am going to show this to my mentor, he'll love it! Thanks again!! It begs the questions: what about in Europa's subsurface ocean? What about Enceladus' geysers? However the food source for these shrimp is a mystery- I can't imagine why they didn't sample the water and check for zooplankton? Or perhaps the shrimp somehow live off detritus, otherwise it's not impossible that there is some deep inlet from the Ocean- 12 miles isn't a lot and they only sampled a tiny hole. They can't completely rule out the possibility of there being no link to open water, as cool as it would be for these guys to be living independently of a marine source. Sorry to rant, that's brilliant though.

Thank you for the article, Dallas! Very interesting and I look forward to seeing the results of that marine sediment coring expedition. I bet there are anaerobic bacteria making up a giant layer of the ocean floor. Some people in my lab are working on marine sediments in the Arctic, very cool work :) Thanks again, going to repost this on my page.
