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

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

Randall, I don't have TV, but am able to watch Cosmos on my computer. Last night's program didn't get onto the computer site until just a few minutes ago. I have been checking last night and all day today. It finally was posted and can found here, at least for me: 

Cosmos

This one has the first six episodes. I watched only the first five minutes and will watch the rest now. 

Here is the address in case you need it:

A really funny video, GC. Tak så mykka

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 14, 2014 at 7:40pm

By the way, yesterday's Cosmos was great.  There were several facts he mentioned that I had forgotten or never heard before.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 14, 2014 at 7:39pm

I don't have cable or satellite TV, just a roof antenna, and I get Cosmos Sundays on FOX.

And now for something completely different:

The Ministry of Silly Walks is alive and well at a pedestrian crossing in Norway:

Just finished a really good book: "Dominion" by C.J.Sansom.
The year is 1952. In 1940 the British P.M., Lord Halifax surrendered to Germany after the fall of France. A Nazi-friendly government is now in power. Churchill, Atlee, Bevan etc. have gone underground to lead the resistance. In a Midland's mental hospital is a scientist who knows a dangerous secret and who has to be got out and sent to America. All of this complicated by the Great Smog of '52. A thriller that will do things to your heart rate and blood pressure.

An imagined history, but the main theme of nationalism has become murduerously relevant again the last couple of decades

only available in the US..... I'll wait.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 14, 2014 at 8:03am

Cosmos is on Fox on Sundays and the National Geographic channel on Mondays, but you can also catch it on CosmosonTV.com.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 14, 2014 at 7:48am

I keep missing Cosmos! Is it on a "cable" channel? I'm limited there, if so. I have the extreme basic package.

Great poster, Mindy. Stealing. Glad to hear that your daughter is getting out and enjoying life. One of the best natural medicines is social activity.
