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.

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

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

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

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Good stuf, Loren. I'm still suprised that it's necessary. Then again, Danish history books are due to be changed. It's still taught as a "fact" that Columbus discovered the world was round!

Goodness.  This cat looks like a real baby in a hoody.

How cute Booklover - love the Lolcat!
Loren I will go and check out your discussion.
Happy new year to you too Ian - love the picture!

Here I go, promoting my own stuff again ... but I thought Zack Koppelin and his fight against the teaching of creationism in New Orleans schools is very much worth your attention ... so please have a look here.

So you're well travelled in time and space, John.

Comment by John Lynch on January 1, 2013 at 2:31pm

I don't want to think how many miles that comes to after seventy two years on the planet.

Well, another year has rolled around, and it was interesting, to say the least. Almost one year for me on the Nexus, meeting wonderful people whom I have come to cherish as members of my extended friends and family.  As a species we continue to sputter forward. We are a contentious, loving, opinionated, loud, happy, sad, content, unfulfilled, artistic, kind, mean spirited, philisophical, practical, dreaming, superstitious, skeptical bunch of primates. Mostly out for ourselves, but flashes of altruism and morality do break through, giving me hope.

To all my friends here, I wish for you a Happy New Year. May you find peace, joy, and happiness, and awe in your daily lives.

My kindest regards to all-Tony

I love that button you posted Patricia. I agree No God Know Peace. So true.

Happy New Year 2013.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 1, 2013 at 2:59am

To all my friends who like to hang out together, my deepest desire is that you each feel great joy, and have good health, and peace even in the face of some interesting times ahead. At least we can share and learn and inspire each other to a better way of living. Even as it is interesting to be part of important change, it can be stressful, and enriching as well. My fondest regards to each of you. Joan
