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

Carl, we don't hear from you even as we think of you hoping you have the opportunity for a healthy and happy future. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 25, 2015 at 1:45am

Randy, welcome home! What a wonderful trip you had! I hope you will share more details ... describe some menus that you really enjoyed, or some interesting event. I love reading such detail.

Comment by k.h. ky on April 24, 2015 at 11:14pm
There's been no word on Carl that I know of. Welcome back Randall. I'm sure you enjoyed yourself. Hopefully you had a break from the rain.
Joan. I hope you're enjoying your stay with the family.
If anyone has heard from Carl please, please, post so I'll know how he is.

Hi Randall. I'm glad your trip was a success!

Comment by Randall Smith on April 24, 2015 at 7:44am

And I'm "back home again in Indiana" after two weeks on the Danube and surrounding countryside. It was a wonderful cruise and bus tour--the scenery, food, people, sites, and weather was fantastic. I'll put in a plug for YMT vacations. Much cheaper than Viking and just as good (according to others).

Hope I didn't miss too much. I see Joan was gone for awhile. How's Carl doing?

Welcome back, Joan. Glad to hear from you again.

Comment by Plinius on April 24, 2015 at 12:46am

Joan? I'm glad you're back but fantastic group of words?

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 23, 2015 at 5:26pm

Chris, what a fantastic group of words! I shared on Facebook with attribution to Chris of AtheistNexus.

Sorry to hear that, Ruth. Does that mean changes in your life-style and/or medication? Those I know who have had new knees have been enthusiastic about the results. There are limitations on mobility but the pain relief is good.

I'd like to hear how that Russian man gets on with his whole-body transplant. I've been feeling like I need one the past couple of years.

Comment by Plinius on April 23, 2015 at 1:28am

Joan told she was free to leave the hospital, but she'll go to her family first, I guess.

If you find that refresh button, Ruth, please tell me where? I try to get things off my list of challenges, but it grows longer.....
