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 8 hours ago. 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

What a wonderful gift, sk8eycat!  I couldn't be happier for you. 

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 4:45pm

Patricia...you're right, NO rosemary! !  It will make a simple scent decoration....maybe a sprig on the wall above each cat box....   Heh 

Just thyme, salt, pepper, onion, carrots....peas....ham, ham broth....and maybe a sprinkle of hot red pepper flakes at the table.  Oh!  And BUTTER!  I can't cook without butter.

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 4:22pm

He also brought some sprigs of fresh rosemary (eww...we have a whole bush outside the front door)...I don't really like it in my food, but I think I'm going to put a red bow on it and hang it in the living room.  For remembrance.

Mike is SO incredibly NICE (and single/divorced)!  Wish I was 30 or 40 years younger......

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 4:06pm

OMNerrrrrrves!  My real estate agent just brought us a CARE package!  1 chicken, 1 ham, bananas, and everything else I need to make split pea w/ham soup.....and 4 or 5 real meals.

Excuse me; I need to cry.....   Haven't done that in ages.

Oops, thought I was posting in the food group.  I'll put a pointer in there to here.

Well, we had some puns in the FOOD discussion, so we need a few here.  IMO.

Carl, I love the "Stable Myth" cartoon....I just forwarded it to a few atheist friends....and am thinking about sending it to a Catholic...

I (who have had WAYYYYYY too many surgeries) have often wondered about the effect of all the bacteria crawling around in a pre-Pasteur stable on a woman who has just given birth, not to mention on the infant.

Comment by sk8eycat on December 23, 2014 at 11:05am

Randall, that's not a "spoiler;" I remember the trial.  The wife was so brainwashed from birth that she believed that putting up with that kind of treatment meant she was a "good xian."  After she left her husband, she became a JW....worse and worse.

Her childhood brainwashing doesn't alter the fact that her paintings are garbage...like Kinkade's.....  Little old ladies (especially ones who were hippies in the '60s) love that kind of crap.  Their husbands LOVVVVVE the poker-playing dogs.    Gaaaaahhhhhh!
