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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jun 3. 1 Reply

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

Melinda, love the kitty. Am reposting. Thanks.

Okay, with Thanksgiving and the holidays fast approaching, this one made me laugh. Now I wonder, where does the whipped cream come from?

Comment by Tony Carroll on September 30, 2012 at 9:23am

Goooooood morning everyone!!! Lovely blasphemy day to all. Just getting up. Turned on tv to catch some news, first thing on was Joel Osteen! Aaaaaaahh! My eyes, my ears! It burns!

Anyway, I love Sunday mornings. Get to sleep in, get up and watch the news shows, eat donuts (can't go wrong with fried dough and sugar), take a nap, visit with my sisters, see my son and daughter-in-law. Life is good.

Grinning cat, that bird is beautiful. I will be taking it for my picture files.

FA, made me groan. I do love a play on words (pictures). Ha-ha.

sk8eycat, I hope they are orthodox swiss mice. After all, it IS the holey-one.

This is a tessellated rock formation at sunrise. From the island of Tasmania. Thought it was beautiful. Later guys.

Reminder: Sunday, Sept. 30 is INTERNATIONAL BLASPHEMY DAY!

What I would LOVE to do is picket a catholic church with a placard showing a grossly bloody crucifix superimposed on a communion wafer, with this caption: "Are you REALLY going to EAT that?"
