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.

A ridiculous claim should be recognized as such as a matter of course, shouldn't it?  Shouldn't It?!?  What happens if that claim is so imbued and integrated into society over hundreds if not thousands of years that it has been taken as TRUTH…Continue

coming out (TheraminTrees)

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

If God Exists (DarkMatter2525)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Dec 23, 2015. 4 Replies

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

Felaine, that's something that's on thewish list. The few times that there has been a possibilty of Aurora here in Denmark the weather has been cloudy.

I have tinnitus but the whistling/whining kind. Too many years of working with newspaper presses plus lots of punk rock concerts when I was younger. Have you found a way of coping with yours?

Patricia,  the description sounds kinda like tinnitus..except for the crackling....  I've been living with that for years.

But I still want to stand outdoors and experience the whole thing.

Interesting.  I didn't know they made noise. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on May 6, 2014 at 6:12pm

What kind of noise/sound do they make?

Comment by sk8eycat on May 6, 2014 at 5:34pm

Yeah, I kinda got that impression from watching "Northern Exposure."  Spooky.

What I really want to do is take the long train ride to Churchill, and see both the Lights AND the bears.  Totally beyond my budget, but I can still dream...

Comment by sk8eycat on May 6, 2014 at 5:20pm

Gah!  The history is amazing, but I think the entire Middle East is the last place on Earth I'd want to be.  I want to see the Canadian Rockies, and Alaska...because I've been fascinated by the Northern Lights since I was a small child.  I wanna see them with my own naked eyeballs.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on May 6, 2014 at 2:34pm

Wow!  Great photos and interesting history, Ian, always makes for a rewarding holiday.
