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! :)

Vanessa, Parasite Rex is a great read. I actually know several people that were in the book and I went to grad school with Dan Brooks. The way Zimmer describes him is perfect!

Hello! I am a science wannabe. I am helping organize The Atlanta Science Tavern. Check us out: http://www.AtlantaScienceTavern.com

Hi! I would fall somewhere between the "amateur" and "whatever" categories of invited newbes! =)
So now start saying smart stuff that I can interject my meaningless chatter into. Right away. Go.

Actually, the logo is on a shirt. I have two from the website http://wearscience.com/

And to Alan F. I don't know a whole lot about parasites, but after reading Carl Zimmer's Parasite Rex, I think they're kind of awesome.

As for engineers, they're pretty cool. Just not as cool as biologists.

There's nothing wrong with engineers. Engineers are basically scientists who specialize in creating useful technologies.

I personally consider myself to be both an engineer and scientist (in training). In fact, the official name of the major that I'm pursuing is Materials Science & Engineering. I've got the best of both worlds. ;)

Hey, although I'm being labeled as a physicist, I love social sciences. My motto is: field theory for everyone!
Comment by Fizzy on July 17, 2008 at 12:31pm
Well... I suppose we can let engineers in.

Q: Why don't engineering majors make jokes about physicists?
A: They need someone to help them with their homework.

Hi Folks. I'm a civil & structural engineer so I hope the "real" scientists won't hold that against me.;-) I recall an undergrad saying: "If it's green & wiggles, it's biology. If it stinks & explodes, it's chemistry. If it doesn't work, it's physics. If it's perfect, it's mathematics." I'd add "If it gets the job done and doesn't cost too much, it's engineering."

I love the logo, I want it on a t-shirt!

I'm a scientician with an emphasis on fizzicks.
Comment by Alan F. on July 16, 2008 at 3:36pm
Hi everyone. I have a PhD in biology/biochemistry. My area of specialization was parasite biochemistry, especially skin penetration mechanisms. However, I am no longer working in the field (long story).
