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!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

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

Melinda! Your insurance doesn't pay for yearly mammograms? That is outrageous! How many women don't have that test simply because they don't have the money. Prevention is key! In my mother and grandmothers' day they didn't know they had cancer until it had grown to a point where successfully treating it was problematic! Do you know others on the same plan? I wonder if they would be willing and able to work together to get that changed.
I wonder if that is true for testicular cancer?
OH DO MAKE A NOISE!

The two hamsters I've had in the past were named Molly and Miles. 

Comment by Lillie on March 19, 2013 at 8:01pm

Melinda, I always give my pets people names because I consider them to be members of the family.

Steph, I am glad you were able to post "Conservative Christian Facebook Posts". I was unable to. I don't know if it is my computer, or what. There are just some pictures I either can't access or send.

Steph, I wonder what that cat is thinking? Some dastardly thoughts, surely. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 19, 2013 at 7:01pm

Steph, your caterfly is so cute. Look at those eyes!

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 19, 2013 at 6:59pm

Joseph Corder, what a helpless feeling! I thought cats always land on their feet. Oh dear, his poor body must have had quite a jolt. I respect the fact that you felt so much compassion for him/her. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 19, 2013 at 6:54pm

TFA, thank you for your thoughtful comment. I do feel we are a warm and cozy little family, caring for each other, keeping in touch, and sharing the scary, bad, and good things in our lives. I feel as though I have a cloud of friends around me; when I am happy and feel like exploding from the pure joy of life, I know many someones around the world care and I can share.   

Have you ever seen an Auroras during a flight. I can only imagine?   but it must be just splendid.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 19, 2013 at 6:44pm

Ian Mason, I am so very sorry to learn of your step-mum and mum doing poorly. My thoughts remain with you. Comfort and peace.

Haha - funny kitty!
