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.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris on Sunday. 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

Questions......

   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

Yeah, Bob Crewe is from the same generation and instrumental style as Herb Albert. 

Sk8eycat, that's a GREAT video and a great memory from your past. 

And then along came Fe-LAINE......

Here's one from the 1960s...I dated the lead singer (in this one song) a few times when we were both in high school (class of '57...different schools).  His mother was my dad's office manager....

It DOES sound very much like TJ Brass...with maybe a hint of Chuck Mangione for a different bit of flavor.

The week is winding down quickly.  Here's a groovy laid-back tune to ease you into Friday and to put you in a good mood for the weekend.

Thank you for your support, Chris. It helps.

Nice Huxley quote. Thanks. Stealing

Thanks, Loren, for ruining my day with Satan's (ex VP) photo!  Actually, nothing can ruin my godless day. It's great to be alive.

My favorite Sisyphus - Pink Floyd.  A good image for the daily struggle, Ian, and my hat off to you.

Tardis was possible too, Mindy; it's Dr. Who's telephone booth for space-time travel. 

I had my ears pierced, just because it was forbidden where I came from. I often wear silver jewelry with inexpensive green stones, but no longer in my ears, because of allergy.

Comment by Ian Mason on June 18, 2014 at 11:33pm

Joan, I like Sisyphus because of the daily labour he represents for me and the strength to keep going with a task no matter how hopeless it seems and with no end in sight. That's what depression is like at its worst. And as you say, success is not the issue. The self-respect that comes from not giving up is.

Hey!  Betty Bowers did a QUICKIE!  No, not THAT kind of quickie!  A short video featuring the devil ... and some guy in red:
