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! :)

Considering how quick conspiracy nutters are to jump on any little/remote piece of evidence in order to support their claims, I think it's relatively reasonable to say they would have said something before 23 years had gone by.

@Aiden--I'm not sure how critical it is regarding how long the intelligentsia have known about a thing (for instance--I just learned of it on this thread!). The timer begins from when the morons in the conspiracy theory nut-house find out about it.

@Boothby

I would doubt that, considering we've known about Cruithne since 1986.

@Boothby: I think your two week estimate is a rather generousness one.

@ Stephan: I know how I made the mistake. I saw the second animation of the orbit and completely missed the point. I think I will blame the cats for this one, they were distracting me with cuteness and the need to sleep at the time.

Damn your right, that will teach me not to post stuff when I am tired. Doh

@JayBarti

The link you posted specifically says that the asteroid does not orbit the Earth.

Cruithne and Earth appear to "follow" each other in their paths around the Sun. This is why Cruithne is sometimes called "Earth's second moon". However, it does not orbit the Earth and is not a moon.

Interesting things I never knew before...

The Earth has more then one natural satellite that orbits it. That is to say we have a second moon (asteroid actually).
