Hello members of the Science group, Some people awhile back asked for a list of transistion fossils.
Note to all members, any religious posts or News articles posted on this group will be deleted This s a science group, not a religious group. Thank you...
I heard many times that in fact power output of the Sun is very low compared to it's size. But people usually consider Sun as something monstrous with...

RANDOM SCIENCEY QUESTION TO SPARK CHATTINESS
What field of science do/have you studied?
I've studied Chemistry, Biology and Physics (GCSE level for those Brits out there) though my Biology understanding is the most advanced as I am currently studying it at A-level (again, Brits will understand).
Also Psychology if it counts.
Well, you could say that Biology is my "speciality", but I'm also trying to learn Calculus and Physics, and I'm thinking of getting into Chemistry too :)
Calculus? Good luck my friend, may his noodly appendage bless your bolognese.
LOL, I hope he watches over your bolognese too, my friend.
Our reality may be just a really large sandbox sims game...
I see there's a lack of Computer Science content here. I would like to know if you guys are interested in it? If yes, I can try and post some content here in my free time.
Of course we are interested in it, it is after all, still science.
Great! I'll try and post some content whenever I get the chance.
Sure feel free to add it!
Hardy-Weinberg. HARDY-WEINBERG. HAAAAAAARRRDYYYY-WEIIIINBEEEERGG!
Medusa_Zenovka: "I could as well say invisble pink unicorn ponies are pulling the earth around the sun."
Are you trying to say that there AREN'T invisible pink ponies?
Something I mentioned in the debating group Moddb.com but really felt I should mention it here as I feel it would increase both the activity and reputation of this group:
If science is meant to be free thinking and about finding the truth then I think that even the greatest pseudoscience should be allowed on the science page. Of course science is also about proving others wrong more often then proving something right so destroying someone's opinions if they are presented in a coherent fashion is highly recommended. If someone proposes an alternative understanding of the universe and argues for it in a scientific manner it should be allowed on the science page. If they are just jumping to conclusions and have barely any coordination with flawed/made up evidence then it shouldn't be allowed. Otherwise the debate society page is more scientific than the science page if we can only post stuff other people that the mods of the science page support have published.
science is not opinion
I answered you already on the debate group
Science can be "opinion" in that there can often be conflicting theories and hypothesizes Cervi. When The Big Bang theory was proposed, the steady state theory was proposed in response (but later debunked as we all know).
Okay but just because something isn't right doesn't mean it has to be taken down. I mean early atomic models weren't right but we still use them to help explain more complex systems. Anyways it's your group and the only reason why I am mentioning this is because this group is barely active and I like science so in my opinion being able to destroy someone's pseudoscience every weeks or so would be more fun than seeing a "this is cool" update once every few months. At least pseudoscience would provide a conversation while a picture of cool looking stars or things everyone agrees on (those that don't usually get heir comments deleted ie anything to do with evolution) usually have barely any comments and aren't posted very often since most people here likely already learned about the latest discovery. Things I think this group is lacking are scientific journals/papers, links to science apps/programs, scientific discoveries, and scientific experiments/lab reports that an adapt scientist could conduct in their house/backyard.
I'm currently in bio20ap and I have access to a couple dozen (I think) journals which I could download and upload for you guys. Hopefully I'll be able to do that tomorrow as its kind of late and I need a good nights sleep for my chem20ap test tomorrow. I hope I do well on it.
