"I remember having a discussion about this with someone once. I hadn't actually ever been told why the moon is synchronized with the earths rotation, but I took a best guess at it and I was spot on. It's not hard to comprehend why the moon…"

"Oops. I didn't see that you included a video clip (I've been reading and replying to the emails, ignoring the forum post). Yeah, funny that the movie came out nearly at the same time that Genie was rescued."

Mormon Theology Cartoon

Should be taken with much salt; it has inflammatory inclinations. But, it's still a gas!

I tend not to communicate back and forth very long with friends by comment or message. Mostly I find participation in a group more satisfying. Although discussions peter out too, each one is like a thread of conversation in a room. The interaction (virtual conversation) moves from one discussion to another, over time, and there's continuity... especially among core members who post often and get to know each other. Think about it. In meatspace we don't spend all evening dwelling on one topic of converstation, we jump around.

Yes, Andrew, I see that petering out of conversations between friends a lot here. That's one reason I started Hang with Friends about 5 days ago. About 80% of members start out and stall quickly, everybody isolated more of less. A group for socializing has been sorely needed, with ongoing conversations and a feeling of community.

Greetings, Andrew! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Dec. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

Thanks for the add, Andrew. If I recall correctly, you and I have chatted before in some of the threads, but it was quite some time ago. Thanks for adding the discussion to Linguaphiles. I'll check it out now.

Nice to meet you...virtually at least. Hope to meet you for reals at an AHA meeting next fall. If you haven't, join our facebook group too. We have a rather large group there!
