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 on Sunday. 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

   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

I agree Randy.  Jumanji is about the scariest movie I like to watch as well.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 13, 2014 at 12:19pm

That certainly is a great view Carl!  I would love to climb those things.  Heights never did bother me.

Comment by Ian Mason on August 13, 2014 at 11:18am

High anxiety, Carl. I couldn't do that.

It sounds like you're busy, Mindy, in the really good way. Hope you don't miss the young ones too much.

I'm probably in the minority here but I prefer Robin Williams stand-up work.

Comment by Plinius on August 13, 2014 at 10:09am

Are you down there Carl? Watching this with sweaty hands - I can get dizzy standing on a newspaper. But really great views!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 13, 2014 at 9:38am

This is absolutely crazy wild.  Two men doing maintenance work on one of the two antennas atop the John Hancock building here in Chicago.  Great views from high up.  Hold on to your seats!

My favorite is the Fisher King

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101889/ but I'm always attracted to ´down and out´ stories.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 13, 2014 at 8:14am

Hello, everyone!  Happy Wednesday.

It's funny how the movie Jumanji keeps popping up as a favorite.  It is for me, too.  In plain and simple terms, it's a fun movie with great special effects. 

Mindy, it's wonderful that your daughter is excited about being out on her own and returning to school.  Sorry you're going to miss your grandcat, though.  I know you mentioned about only adopting cats from now on.  Is that something you have planned for the near future or further down the road?  Wish I could have one.  [shedding tears]    

Comment by Randall Smith on August 13, 2014 at 7:36am

Spud, thanks for reminding me of Jumanji, a good movie (with Robin) with good (for the time) special effects. That's about as scary of a movie I ever care for.
