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

   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

Actually, I heard she revoked her Swiss citizenship the very next day. So, Michelle Bachman is stiil our problem.

Comment by Tony Carroll on May 10, 2012 at 11:31pm

Hey, did anybody hear that Michelle Bachman now has dual citizenship? She recently became a Swiss citizen, as her husband is Swiss. She said her children were interested in doing it, so they did it as a family. I just want to say to Switzerland, what the hell were you thinking? She,s your problem now, no take backs.

Great picture and caption, Roz and Russ! And it's good to hear from you.

Sounds lovely. My daughter went snorkeling at the GB Reef and still thinks it was the greatest experience of her life. Fair winds and happiness to you.

Sailing is great Ian.  Thanks for asking.  We are leaving Brisbane area on Saturday and sailing up to the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands in two days.  We'll be in Australia waters until 2013 before heading to Indonesia.  You can follow us on our blog at http://worrallwind.blogspot.com

Steph, I probably will start a discussion about cat fiction in a day or two; I had a typing and printing job that I had to finish tonight so it could go out in tomorrow's snail mail, and I have a feeling that the Pet Press ads are going to start coming in next week...so I'll try to get my act together by this weekend.

The only cat warrior books I've read have been Mark Rogers' "Samurai Cat" series, and I got those mostly for his artwork. Oh, I know about Larry Niven's series about the Kzin, but I've never read any.

So many books, so little time....

Nice pic. How's the sailing going?

Congrats on the 700+ members!
Sorry I'm behind on the site here. But now I'm free! Yay!

Oh Ruth I'm going to post again more here now that the semester is over. I just got spread too thin and I haven't been posting as much as I'd like. You are doing just fine. No worries, ok?
