Hang With Friends

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.

Men who challenge men to stop violence

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

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

Atheist Pig STRIKES AGAIN!!!

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Re the "Archie" comic....how did they end up in the Old West? (I stopped reading "Archie" at about age 10, I thought it was kinda candy-ass from the beginning.

BTW, Johnny Hart put xian messages in his "B.C" strip as often as he could....and got some fierce backlashes when he did.

Joan, Mindy said that cartoon wasn't a joke.  She was just pointing-out how religious the cartoonist was.  It was a surprise and a disappointment.  Correct me if I'm wrong Mindy.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 28, 2014 at 9:26am

Mindy, I'm very sorry to hear of the problems you are having with your old friend.

I can relate to being worried about her doing something to hurt you.  When I get into disagreements with people, even lesser disagreements than you had, I worry quite a bit.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 28, 2014 at 2:55am

Mindy, I am very happy to learn that yur daughter is doing so well! You must be very proud of hers growth!

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 28, 2014 at 2:49am

Spud, I need an ending to that cartoon as well. A long pause, and nothing came to mind. So, I hope she can explain it.  I am so bad at jokes and don't think up things fast enough to be effective

But you did very well, Mindy! It looks like your ex-friend tried to punish you for her own problems, and then there is no other way than insisting your behaviour is correct and changing your number. It's almost pleasant to cut loose someone who wants to control your life. Enjoy the extra space!

Booklover, sometimes you have to cut them loose. I cut ties with a friend of 30+ years because she started calling at three in the morning drunk. It went on for several years after I'd told her nicely to not call me when she was drinking. And never call at 3am. She didn't stop so I broke it off.
Some friendships aren't worth the aggravation.

I should have added that most atheists I know became atheists because we were searching for the truth, and read the entire buybull from cover to cover. And found nothing believable.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 27, 2014 at 6:44pm

I would add that if religion were true, its adherent would not have to bludgeon the public (by passing restrictive laws, for one thing) to convert, either.

Was doing some link-jumping off of something I saw on A|N's Amateur Radio group when I found THIS:

Seems as though the inventor of Cthulhu had it goin' on in the brainbox!
