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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Yasmine Mohammed - Confessions of an Ex-Muslim (The Thinking Atheist)

A very good video, Joan. Down-to-earth logic and common sense.

Randy, I hope you escape the rain during the trip and enjoy yourself.

Have a great time, Randall.

Chaos is right, Chris. A witty collection of strange things.

Have a good trip Randall! Wave when you're in the neighborhood!

Comment by Deidre on April 7, 2015 at 8:11am

Have a fun trip, Randall...sounds wonderful!

Comment by Randall Smith on April 7, 2015 at 7:55am

Deidre, I was a born actor. It was sort of fun pretending to be a christian and preaching the gospel of ol' J.C.

For the rest of my atheist friends here at "Hangin', I'll be taking a sabbatical for two weeks while I'm traveling down and around the Danube River. Munich, Vienna, Budapest, etc. awaits. See ya'all later.

Pronunciation ís strange. At teacher training college this poem was exercise material for phonetics and pronunciation. http://ncf.idallen.com/english.html

@The Flying Atheist, Hi Carl, I'm sending a hug. Hope your energy gets stronger. Sorry that I send you a late Eostre, Ostara, Autos, Ishtar, Astarte greeting in anticipation of warm weather. We had snow this morning and expect more. 

Comment by Deidre on April 6, 2015 at 11:08pm

hahaha Randall, you taught Sunday school as a non-believer. That's epic. :)

So true, Ian. George Bernard Shaw had a famous example. If you take "g" as in "laugh," "o" as in "women," and "ti" as in "information," "fish" could be spelled goti.
