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! :)

I'm the nurse that not only is afraid of shots, hates to give them (and I have to give ~one a week!!) LOL!!

I'm the guy that's afraid of needles and cringes like a little girl with a skinned knee when Gwen injects me with the Big Pharma drugs that Stephan helps produce...
Comment by Gwen on August 11, 2009 at 11:35pm
Welcome Stephan! I'm an RN, I am the one who injects the 'big pharma' drugs after making sure it is the right drug, person, reason, route, dose, time, and administration, and watch out for side effects to make sure you don't die after I inject you! LOL!!

Silly me, I've been commenting but haven't introduced myself. I'm Stephan, and I'm educated in Molecular and Evolutionary biology with a big heap of genetics. I'm a practicing microbiologist for Big Pharma, but I'm not trying to gouge you in the wallet, just making sure you don't die after injecting something.

Linda, just remember that a strong nail needs to be hammered many times before it is flush to a piece of hardwood, but once the effort has been made to hammer it in well, it stays and it holds!! I started in my 30s when I thought I was too old to, and yet here I am! Yes, books are your friends, try auditing a community college course, it used to be free, that way you get guidance. Other good science podcasts are Astronomy Cast (a lot goes over my head, but it is in language geared toward the lay person)and skeptech and the SGU 5X5, too. Those are good starter podcasts if you like SGU and are science based.

thanks, I have been listening to lots of podcasts, like sceptics guide to the universe, which is my favorite. but many others. I find this is the best way for me to have a science education. Reading about it is soooo slow. and I have to use a dictonary all the time. Right now I'm reading "The Link" by Colin Tudge. Its very slow going. I'm worried about how much I'm acually retaining. O well little by little. Linda

Fire away with any questions Linda. I'm sure this group will be able to answer or point you to good reference materials.
Comment by linda wagner on August 11, 2009 at 7:40pm
I'm new to this group. Love Science. I don't have much education, so I'm educating myself. I guess that makes me an amateur enthusiast. Linda

There is a group about pets: Even heathens love their pets!. But post it here, I don´t have a dog and I want to read it.
Comment by Jared Lardo on July 18, 2009 at 4:36pm
vandrerol, the first time I saw it, I felt a satisfaction at the filling of that giant hole that my biology class left unfilled. The book skirted abiogenesis completely by saying something like "Scientists believe that life arose in the first place by a process know as abiogenesis." The word was bolded for certain. They just touched on it and didn't poke or look at all and moved on to the chapter about Pavlov's dogs.
