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.

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

Some William Blake to Ponder

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Donatien Alphonse François on Tuesday. 6 Replies

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

God's Not Dead - The Christian Persecution Complex (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Annie Willis Apr 20. 7 Replies

Doubtless most if not all of you have heard about that sorry piece of cinema known as God's Not Dead, and perhaps its sequel, cleverly entitled: God's Not Dead 2 (wow, how original!).  Personally, I have wasted neither time nor money on either,…Continue

The Value of Atheist Nexus ... and of Keeping Contact

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 17. 13 Replies

I don't know about you, but the last 24+ hours were VERY uncomfortable for me.  Why?  Because something I value a LOT, being Atheist Nexus and the people I care about on A|N were temporarily unavailable to me.  No, we're not Facebook; I don't think…Continue

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

Patricia, I like your new avatar.  Do you have a large one I could save?

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:

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 8, 2014 at 10:12pm

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.
Comment by Joan Denoo on August 8, 2014 at 6:56pm

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.
