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.

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Warning! Browsing through Atheist Nexus Facebook photos is addictive. I just liked 75 photos there.

Carl, gracias por la música, mi amigo.

I hope you're all having a great day!

If not, here's a little feel-good music to cheer you up.

Ha!  I hadn't heard about Dan Savage's little challenge to Ben Carson, Grinning Cat.  Brilliant!

Homosexuality is a choice.  At least that's what the right-wing response would be...

Carl, I remember how Dan Savage responded to that myth: he challenged Ben Carson to turn gay, to show that that's possible, and "suck my dick."

LOL, Joan. Fantastic video. Especially, “On religious grounds we still fight and kill and maim / but we are good and innocent and not the ones to blame.”

Hi! Deidre, welcome back. How are you doing? Hope you are having fun. 


Comment by Joan Denoo on June 22, 2015 at 10:15pm

Oh dear, playing the blame game when there are still so many unknowns. I guess this is where Fags of the Gaps" come into play. If we don't know why our world is so fucked up, it must be because of fags. 

God of the Gaps when we don't know. 

Fags of the Gaps when we don't know.

I wasn't able to see a video of bögarnas fel so downloaded another copy. In case others couldn’t see the original video, I posted this one.
