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.

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 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

Felaine, no reason to apologize.  You're not being selfish at all, just a very caring and loving guardian to another living being who is an important part of your life.  I understand your worries.  Hairy Jerry is lucky to be with you when he needs special care.  

Melinda, don't get too out of hand with your new-found freedom.  We don't want to read about you in the Police Blotter.  And you better stay out of the Gourmet food aisle. 

Tony.......what can I say?  Puppies!!!!!!  What a cute pic.

hey Flying Atheist I have seen that commercial and I think it really cute and funny. Make me laugh every time. Thanks for posting it.

Tony those puppies are so adorable!

Joan - thanks for the Mantis Shrimp.

Shhhh! Please be very, very, quiet. We're exhausted!

Comment by Plinius on March 21, 2013 at 3:36am

Felaine, our cats ARE our family, so you've got a family problem and I hope for a good outcome! Xtians are always shocked and angry when I talk like this and say "It's only an animal." What do they mean by ONLY? With a little understanding of evolution we know better than that.

So all the best for Hairy Jerry - and I have not forgotten Ian's mothers; all the best for them too!

Comment by sk8eycat on March 21, 2013 at 2:46am

I feel stupid for whining about my cat's condition...and selfish...when some of you are undergoing much worse medical and family problems. (I'm also terrified of the cost; I don't get my Social InSecurity deposit till next week...isn't that tacky?)

I apologize.

Felaine

PS to TFA...I want a pair of those, too!  Adorabubble!

Have any of you cat lovers seen this commercial?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 20, 2013 at 9:26pm
TFA, Oh yes! "a new salad dressing. Franch: a combination of French and Ranch." I missed the opportunity to claim a new recipe.
Propaganda has such a sinister way of kidnapping minds and distorting reality. That is why delusional thinking needs challenging!
