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 Feb 19. 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

Makes me miss my cat.

Sitting on the bridge of my ship with a watch partner that just oozes Jesus. I feel like he's eating my brain.

Mindy, I once adopted 2 kittens from the same litter....one died at about age 2 from Feline Leukemia (and so did all the other kittens from that litter...as did their feral mother), and I was terrified that Lyle (her brother) would develop it, too.  But he never did...and they ate and drank out of the same dishes, and usually slept curled up together, too.  Lyle lived to be 17.....

What Joan said! I too hope Lillian has an easy last few hours, and that your mom will be "ok" in the weeks and months ahead.

I've shared this before:

Sorry to learn of Lillian's Feline Leukemia. What were the symptoms? Hope she has an easy last few hours. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 8, 2014 at 9:26pm

I remember now, Mindy.  Lillian was partial to your daughter and gave you the cold shoulder, but Mom ended up getting the cat. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 8, 2014 at 8:52pm

Sorry to hear that, Mindy.  How sad!  Give Lillian a rub on the head for me.

He's just your garden variety asshole Patricia.
There's one on every site. Ignorant and arrogant.
I choose to ignore them.

Mindy, imagine you have a cloud of atheist going with you to the in-law's dinner. We'll be sitting on your shoulder so you can chat with us when the conversation turns to topics of no interest to you. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 8, 2014 at 6:25pm

 k.h. ky , I just read the link to the trial in which you served. I can't even imagine having to listen to that sordid story and the people involved!

The victim's brother had a long struggle. 

"Justice delay is better than no justice. Thank you for your service to your community.
