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.

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

A Prayer for Our Nation (Betty Bowers)

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Hey, what's the point of bringing common sense to a debate if your opponent isn't?
Comment by Ian Mason on August 14, 2011 at 10:31am

Welcome, Susan. Isn't reality wonderful? Fairy stories are good entertainment but you wouldn't like to base your life on them.

 

They're fine answers, Chris. If people don't want to debate with common sense and logic, why not make fun of them?

I feel I should help us fight the prejudice against atheists out there.  Two of the most common questions I get asked as an atheist are "How can you deny that this world is the product of anything but intelligent design?" and "What do you yell out in bed?"

In the case of the former, I answer "I can deny that we're the byproduct of intelligent desgin because you're here."  With the latter, I go "Ask your wife."

I know it makes me sound like a dick, but I really don't care.

Hi I'm Susan. My husband and I both turned 40 this year and decided it was time to grow up and stop believing in fairytales. :)

I made a mistake, the link for the "Rational Society" is www.sociedaderacionalista.org
