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.

Men who challenge men to stop violence

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

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

Same here Spud. From what I can tell, based on the remarks I remember him leaving that aren't there anymore, I'm guessing he's gone (hopefully banned). Should have stood up to him, but I guess I wasn't looking for an all-in brawl with a troll.

Patricia, I like your lumbarghini.  Cool vehicle.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 8, 2014 at 9:56am

Loren, I would have loved being at that get together with you and the other atheists.  

I wouldn't want an autograph or even a handshake (I'm a slight germaphobe), but I would very much like a picture with you and some others, especially Richard Dawkins.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 8, 2014 at 9:50am

Brent, it's too bad that you had to leave because of a bully.  I hope he's gone for good.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 8, 2014 at 9:49am

For those of you who are interested, I've posted my impressions of The Unbelievers in my blog.  There may be more regarding the book signing, which left its own impressions and which I think want some commentary.

I WILL get there eventually!

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 8, 2014 at 9:48am

Patricia, what a sad childhood.  I don't know what to say, so I'll just say I second what Joan has said.

I think it would do me good to work at being humorous like you do.

Comment by Pat on April 8, 2014 at 7:15am

Outstanding Loren! Can't wait to read the review.

Welcome back Ian, and thanks for the pictures, I like them very much.

" many need help just to survive their families"

Very true, but the stories are told and shared here: we're in good company!

I imagine that at least a couple of you want to know how The Unbelievers was last night.  I will likely be a little while writing about that, but in the meantime, here's a little something to let you all know that yours truly wasn't just blowing smoke:

Grottos at Rosh HaNrika, near the Lebanese border.
