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

In anticipation of Friday and the weekend, here's something to ease down with.  I can truthfully say that this has been a favorite of mine for crowding half a century.

Ladies and gentlemen: Messrs. Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto - Corcovado.

I'm way ahead of you, Carl.  Gave up haggis years ago ... along with Brussels sprouts.  :-P~~~~~

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 6, 2014 at 1:02pm

I'm making the extreme sacrifice for Lent.  I'm giving up haggis.

I do "get" Napoleon.  He's using shock value to make valid points about the insanity of world in which we live.  And he's correct. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 6, 2014 at 12:13pm

Self-censorship, Napoleon? Is this supposed to be irony?

Comment by sk8eycat on March 6, 2014 at 9:43am

Hunh?

Comment by sk8eycat on March 5, 2014 at 11:17pm

A Catholic co-worker always said he was giving up "tuna melts" (which he hated) for Lent.

I still don't understand the reasoning of giving things up for Jeebus...it would make more sense (to me) to eat more to "help" him, if he were fasting. 

Are they supposed to still observe all this crap in Heaving? Go through the old rituals and stuff... eat human flesh, and drink blond, re-enact the crucifiction?  Even when I was still a believer, the idea of an eternity praising something for a life I never asked for seemed utterly borrrrring!

PS: As many others have pointed out, there's a helluva lot of ritual bloodletting in the buybull.  How barbaric!
