The purpose of this group is to discuss morality from all points of view: biological, evolutionary, philosophical. Specific moral questions are also encouraged: if you have a moral question for us atheists, feel free to post it here.See More
News from the cosmos. Information and news streams about the very huge to the very small. Astronomy, physics, astrophysics, astrochemistry, space, time, and all the strange cosmic phenomena we are constantly discovering.
"@_@ When I read your profile, I didn't even look to see you were also in Lafayette. Are you part of the non-theist society at Purdue? I know I'm not, but I also know you don't have to be a student to join up and meet lots of others…"

I thought I'd send a comment your way since you showed an interest in someone that is rarely online long enough to comment. Plus, your own comments and posts are fascinating.
Thanks for the friend add, as well!"
"You have opened up a whole plane of distraction for me with that site, DG. Now it comes down to listening to podcasts or finishing a really boring presentation for a class I don't want to fail. . . >_<</body>"
I am a graduate student at Purdue University. My thesis is to cover the role of fungi the mobility of beryllium within the soil column. I've got a lot of learning to do on these subjects, but it will be worth it. This is a new look at a soil dating scheme that will be quite useful in geoarchaeology and Quaternary geology.
That being said, I'm sure you can tell I'm passionate about my studies. The rest of my life is filled with playing with my cats, reading books (Prachett is my favourite), cooking, walking, bike riding, hiking, and botany. I like other stuff too, but these things make my priority list when I have free time.
I'm positively addicted to tea. My other vices: I'm also an unrepentant bibliophile, have a daily craving for dark chocolate, and love learning. I also have decided to start my own R&D company. Things are going slow, but it is what takes over my life. (If you're interested in checking out what I'm doing so far, go to my website at http://insanitek.net)
Why are you here?
I might make friends on the off chance that I have time to log on and spend here.

Why you left your religion.
I was never part of a religion, but there are many reasons for that. Someday I'll get around to either explaining it in detail, or you can just ask reasonable, non-accusatory questions to find out.

Hey Grace, I read an article you published on AAAS, "Trials of teaching social ethics in sciences." I loved it and didn't see a way to send you a message, so google landed me on your account here, which hasn't been used in several years.
But I figured it couldn't hurt to drop you a note and let you know that I really appreciated your article.
Thanks for the comment and the friend add. I'm just trying to connect with some local, like minded people. I'm hopeful that maybe we could get a small group together for mutual support from time to time. Sometimes it seems we non-believers are left to wander alone, but then, I think the believers would prefer us that way, instead of forming groups for strength and support the way they do.
