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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

sk8eycat and Paula, Thanks for the reply. I agree!!! I am looking at the video now!!! It's funny! 

Comment by sk8eycat on July 30, 2012 at 6:30pm

"...not everyone has been called to believe..."???!  So it's already been set up, who will go to Heaving and who will go to Hail (where all the fun people supposedly go).  What's the point of proselytizing, then?

MONEY! 

God has already decided to send you/me to hell. "But he LOVES you! And he needs MONEY!" Check out George Carlin's number about religion on You Tube, and post the link on your FB page.

******************

If anyone says to me that their imaginary fiend (yes, I spelled it correctly!) is real, just toss two words at them: "Evidence, please."  There isn't any.  The buybull is not evidence. 

The same thing goes for Jesus...The Roman era in the Middle East has been thoroughly covered by scholars and historians who lived in Jerusalem and Galilee in those times, and there is NOT ONE single comment about a miracle-working, rabble rousing, self-appointed rabbi...overturning money-changers tables,  a trial in front of Pilate, anything. Or a crucifiction (again, my deliberate spelling).

"Faith" is a cop-out.

That last post is just Pascal's Wager all over again.  Old.

If you get tired of dealing with these crazies, DUMP them!  I know they "mean well," but George Bernard Shaw said that was the worst thing you can say about a person.

PS: I tried FB 3 years ago and unsubscribed after a week.  I couldn't handle it...all the crashing bores from my past seemed to crawl out of the innertubes to pester me, and the people I really like were already in touch via e-mail.  More personal, and private.

Request sent, Sylvia, thanks! :) I can't wait to see the religious-type posts in the future.

You know, when people say there is a difference between religion and a relationship with christ, I never get a coherent explanation. It's all circular BS, a always. And how do you have a 'personal' relationship with a being that has never been seen? ugh!

I don't have FB - or I would friend you guys.

Comment by Sylvia on July 30, 2012 at 6:12pm

If anyone else would like to become friends on FB just send me a request. I need all the allies I can get! https://www.facebook.com/sylviastrange?ref=tn_tnmn

I got it girl!!!! I seen the post you were talking about also! Did she take you off her list? 

Comment by Sylvia on July 30, 2012 at 5:58pm

She is the most religious person I know. Every FB post is about God or Christ!!! She says there is a difference between religion and a relationship with Christ!!!  

Comment by Sylvia on July 30, 2012 at 5:54pm

She was inviting me to a church for a recovery program. I was addicted to pills years back and have been clean almost 3 years, with NO help from anyone. I was going through a lot with my husband at this time also! 

Comment by Sylvia on July 30, 2012 at 5:48pm

I didn't figure it out yet. I added the max amount of pictures when I joined, I just don't know how to add more. I will make some more screen shots and post them.
