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 myth of religions

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Oh, did I just get some MONSTER news from my kid!  Two line items, in fact:

  1. She has just been accepted into Georgetown University's graduate Intelligence program (and that's "intelligence" as in Langley!).
  2. She has just been hired by the news division of WRC, the NBC affiliate in – get this – WASHINGTON, DC!!!

Yeah, she's doing both things and yeah, it'll be a challenge, but it is PRECISELY what SHE wants to do ... and I am freaking THRILLED outta my brains for her!

It takes some incredibly twisted thinking to lie for jesus, when the buybull says all liers are going to burn in hell.

Those jerks are apparently willing to do and/or claim anything in order to advance their bullshit.  The problem is that their credibility is probably on a par with a certain occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania, NW.  To a degree, they're probably trying more to salve their own belief rather than try to get others to buy into their crap, and in that regard, it's little different from Christian apologetics.

Challenged, this supposed conversion will dry up like a puddle in the Sahara, and we can get back to business.

Catholics Online Claim Stephen Hawking Experienced Deathbed Conversion

  • Liars for Jesus: In a pathetic attempt to prop up their corrupt religious superstition, some Catholics claim Stephen Hawking converted to Christianity after a blessing from Pope Francis before his death.
  • It is an all too common story: Christians often lie about a prominent atheist or freethinker experiencing a deathbed conversion after their death. For example, in 2016, Christian apologist Larry Alex Taunton claimed atheist Christopher Hitchens contemplated converting to Christianity on his deathbed.
  • In fact, the same sort of false narratives have been told about Charles Darwin, Oscar Wilde, and countless other freethinkers and atheists.
  • So it is not surprising that the faithful would attempt the same sort of smear after the death of legendary British theoretical physicist and intellectual g....
