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.

11 "unanswerable" questions for atheists - answered (Aron Ra)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Tom Sarbeck Jun 6. 1 Reply

If you spend any time around YouTube and have any history of looking at atheist material (or even theist material!), you will inevitably run into: "XX Questions Atheists Can't Answer."  These are occasionally followed by: "XX Questions Atheists…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jun 3. 1 Reply

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

How would you respond?

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

To answer Ian's question:

Honduras, especially the capital, Tegucigalpa, is a pig sty. People more than "litter"-- they dump. Garbage of all kinds line the streets. The huts they live in are deplorable. Men urinate out in the open. The streets and traffic are nightmarish.

Outside of Teguc, it's not much better. Only the scenery is nicer. Why my daughter and husband enjoy living there is a mystery to me. They just have the compassion and faith to help the needy. To me, it's a spit in the ocean.

I understand the president (Hernandez) is trying to do something, but the present culture prevents a total makeover. It's quite sad and depressing.

Thanks, but am not up to speed with learning my way around it just yet, so am still on the old one for now.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on February 20, 2018 at 9:53pm

Congrats on the new computer, Patricia.

I have heard nobody say anything positive about Windows 8 or 8.1!

Comment by Loren Miller on February 20, 2018 at 3:34pm

I'm running Windows 10, but I have to believe it will run on other platforms.  In fact, I just checked and Cliqz says it'll run on Windows 7 and 8 ... though WHY would you want to run Win8??? [grin!]

Comment by Patricia on February 20, 2018 at 3:23pm

I just got a brand new laptop with lighted keyboard, & blue light protector (macular degeneration), & it has Windows 10.

I also have a Chromebook & may give it a try on there first.

I've been on Ubuntu & Mint for a few years, so Windows is rather strange to me now.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on February 20, 2018 at 3:14pm

Patricia - I think it's compatible back to Win 7. Also works on 'Droid.

Comment by Patricia on February 20, 2018 at 3:09pm

Is that for Windows 10?

Comment by Loren Miller on February 20, 2018 at 2:51pm

Fooling around with Cliqz now, and I LIKE it, especially that it appears to be a superset of Firefox which is my primary browser and handles just like it.  Thanks for the heads-up, Bertold!

That's a long trip, Randall. I'm glad you enjoyed it. How's Honduras in general?

The Atheist Pig is pretty sharp.
