Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Friday

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.

Alexa for Evangelicals! (Betty Bowers)

Never let it be said that Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is anything less than up to date with the state of the art as it comes to the modern household.  However, as a discriminating conservative Christian, Betty would never tolerate…Continue

New Rule: Church and Destroy (Real Time with Bill Maher - HBO)

Bill Maher is an atheist [whoa, shock and amazement!].  He is also a dedicated opponent of Donald Trump and anyone who would support the man or his goals ... and that includes ol' Yahweh, himself!  As it turns out, there is a substantial correlation…Continue

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Grinning Cat Aug 27. 20 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

We had a few good days but are socked in again with the smoke. One thing in its favour.....the sun can't get through enough to get the heat up, so the temps have been more tolerable.

Many schools did not start up because of all this, & more evacuations have gone on so it isn't over by any means.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 7, 2017 at 1:16pm

This is a video by one of the homesteaders I follow daily. They live just over the mountain from where I live. The smoke has been terrible and not nearly as thick as what Patricia experiences.

Nice, Randall! 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 6, 2017 at 5:52pm

Just wanted to share this video.  It's such a beautiful story.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 6, 2017 at 4:42pm

Randy, I'm sure you're going to love your trip to China.  I haven't been there, but how can you not be fascinated and enchanted by such a rich and diverse culture?  (That's a rhetorical question....lol.)

Comment by Patricia on September 6, 2017 at 2:16pm

I don't like ''chatting'' particularly, & don't know anyone who does.

Comment by Patricia on September 6, 2017 at 2:14pm

I do not like to travel, but the Orient has always fascinated me. A guided tour seems to be the way to go when you're doing something very different. Daniel's posts were always so interesting when I was on a/n before.

Daniel, love the cartoon. And my family and I did see it rain frogs once. I never thought it was gawd but it puzzled me for years. Until I read in the farmers almanac that they get swept up by rain clouds and dropped miles away. It's also been known to rain fish.
Comment by Ian Mason on September 6, 2017 at 1:23pm

Randy, that sounds like a great trip. The people I know who have been there have loved it. Good luck with your preparations.

I used the chat room a few times but found it to be populated with those who like puerile 'jokes' so I stopped.

Comment by Gwaithmir on September 6, 2017 at 7:32am

What's going on over in the chat room? I used to come in here on a nightly basis a couple of years ago and there were always three to six people chatting. Nowadays, the chat room is pretty much deserted all the time. Have people lost interest or is there a better atheist website to go to now?
