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! :)

@Boothby171: HAHAHA. I think the word "scientists" should also be in quotes there ;) You should most this into the Atheist Humor group (although it being an old article, I assume it's already there). Very funny, thank you :)

Maybe you were thinking of this article?

@MaBones: If that link below is not the right one, you can try going to google and typing in some words you remember from the argument, like gravity or religion and anything else you know was there and follow it with the operator site:atheistnexus.org.

Your search string will look like this:

gravity site:atheistnexus.org

And it will only search this site for the words you choose.

I'm new here. Was cruising through the groups and forums a few days ago and came across a very interesting discussion about gravity as a religious belief. I have searched "gravity" on the site this morning and can't seem to find it again. Does anyone know what group that thread is associated with?

Weird worlds: The solar system's 10 strangest moons

Moons may bow to planets in terms of size, but in character they often outshine their stolid parents. The named moons of the solar system outnumber planets by more than 20 to 1, and they display a remarkable diversity. There are fully fledged worlds such as Titan, as complex as any planet. There are possible havens for life, such as the ice-crusted water world Europa. New mysteries surround even the smallest satellites, most recently the apparent flying saucers orbiting Saturn.

This year it will be four centuries since Galileo discovered Jupiter's four large satellites, at a stroke quintupling the number of moons then known to humanity.

Join Stephen Battersby for a tour of some of the most frigid, violent and downright strange worlds we have discovered since then.

Meet X-woman: a possible new species of human

The human family tree may be in for a dramatic rewrite. DNA collected from a fossilised finger bone from Siberia shows it belonged to a mysterious ancient hominid – perhaps a new species.

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.
