Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Steven Weinberg on his anti-theism

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Loren Miller yesterday. 4 Replies

I like the sound of Steven Weinberg's voice. He has a calming impact on me as I rush to get my home of 41 years ready to sell and plan and put into motion the new garden at my daughter's home. My home is full o empty boxed quickly filling with the…Continue

I saved your NOthump sign Flying A.  I may put one on my door.  

I've even been considering labeling it with "NO thumping", or "NO Wakaloons", or "NO crazy people", or "NO fairy stories", or NO reality challenged proselytizers".  But you mentioned bullshit, so I'm thinking a good label would be "NO BS" or "NO BULLSHIT".

Comment by The Flying Atheist on April 30, 2013 at 2:51pm

I know damn well that I don't have to listen to door-to-door proselytizers or take any of their literature.  I totally resent that fact that they are intruding into my personal time and space with their insane bullshit while I'm eating, napping, doing chores, watching a movie, or just chilling around the house in any degree of dress or undress.  And I very sternly tell them so.  The only times I say anything more is if there are any young adults with them......high school or college age.  I'll address them and tell them not to believe the lies they're being told, to think for themselves and to use the internet to look at videos on TheThinkingAtheist.com.  And I'll say, "Remember that!  The Thinking Atheist dot com!"

I thought this touched a nerve.

Well, I didn't want it to come to this, but the above sign is going to be placed on my front door today.  Three days in a row, this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I was interrupted in my home by a knocking at the door and visited by religious solicitors.  Friday was the Jehovah Witnesses and Saturday and Sunday were ladies from a Spanish bible church.  Ugh!!!  So obnoxious.

I saw The Bear - it says in the credits NO animals were harmed, and as far as I know Annaud is keen on integrity.

Joan, thanks for the bird info.

Damn, another male top and female bottom scene.
