Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

Questions......

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Pretty much, Ian, as long as it shows respect. We're wide open to what's on your mind, Rhonda. I'm sure you have a lot to add. It's as easy as "how did your weekend go?" or have you burst out laughing about a funny LOLcat today? Here's mine...

I know what you mean Rhonda. I feel the same. But I think it's a place where anything goes.
Comment by Rhonda Boyer on May 22, 2011 at 2:19pm

So, I am new to this group.  I read a lot on groups before I comment much.  Like to see how things go, test the waters, so to speak.

If I don't comment much, it isn't that I am not interested.  I am usually just trying to see if I have anything to add.

A religious hypocrite (interchangeable) would be right at home and among friends.
Comment by Donald R Barbera on May 20, 2011 at 7:10am
I just wanted to comment on the coming Rapture and say that I have done my share by setting up a filthy lucre recycling bin. That way those who are about to become the "dearly departed" can rest assurred that the evil of money isn't rubbing off on the greater community. Of course, I will be offering loans at the respected business discount of 22% compounded daily. Asides for that, I have waited impatiently for this day. At least the grounds will be clear for those of us without such understanding to gather it in peace!

Was at the theatre last night and saw "Tartuffe". There was a comment in the programme that put forward the opinion that a religious hypocrite/con-man like Tartuffe would not succeed in the U.S. if he was an immigrant. Any comments?

Semantics...semiotics...Semolina...it'll all be over on Saturday, May 21, 2011 anyway. Who cares? Anyone else going to an "End Of The World" masquerade party? My daughter's giving one for friends and I'm invited. I'm going as a Borgia Pope..

@Kate - LOL, I have a blog cued up for 6pm UTC+14 called Prophecy FAIL! to deal with just that.

Have to share the front page of the Boston Phoenix I stumbled upon today:

Sail Roz, I live in a drinking town with a sailing problem (lol), so I'm jealous. :P

 

On the upside, I have a day off today! It's a miracle. ;)
