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.

attacking ideas (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Apr 4. 1 Reply

Attacking ideas is a considerable portion of what we as atheists do.  Why attack ideas?  Ideas earn attack when they don't serve people, not just us but those who adopt said ideas, mistakenly thinking that they have value when they don't.  Our…Continue

bending truth, or "We Can All Be Manipulated" (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Apr 4. 40 Replies

The following is one of TheraminTrees' most thorough-going pieces, wherein he looks at the process and techniques whereby a "religious" organization (which will sound VERY familiar to most of us, once introductions are made!) takes a person who…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Mar 28. 16 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

Have a good time with your son, Joan.

I can see now why Trump admires Putin. He has opponents 'removed.'

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 12, 2016 at 1:18pm

Wow!  That's scary.  Threatening to jail political enemies.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 12, 2016 at 1:14pm

Grinning Cat, threats, intimidations, thuggery, and bullying reveals a new low. This country should end. We deserve better. We need a president and Congress who stand tall, proud to be a citizen of our country, members who support free speech and assembly, that opens its books to reveal how deals come into being, and debates, properly performed, to bring out all pros and con of an issue. 

I have to believe there is a strong undercurrent of voters who understand how a federal republic works and why citizen involvement is necessary. 

I can't think of anything positive to write. Give me minute, I will catch a positive thought. 

OH YES My son from Colorado arrives in less than an hour.

Yes and yes. The tangerine would-be Mussolini (a.k.a. Hair Furor, the Calumnious Kumquat, the Screaming Orange Cheato [sic], and many other cheap but oh-so-appropriate names) threatened to jail his political enemies at the end of the last debate.

Not only that, he shows no remorse for having bragged about sexual assaults; he shrugs it off as "locker-room talk" that "all men" do.

In a truly civilized country, just one of these and other things he's done would make him unelectable to 99% of voters.

That should have read the next debate.
Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 12, 2016 at 6:54am

Before it was even over I felt like I needed a shower. Drumph was truly creepy.

Comment by k.h. ky on October 12, 2016 at 12:42am
Does anyone else feel slightly nauseous at the thought of the last debate?
Comment by Joan Denoo on October 12, 2016 at 12:28am

Oh! Yes! Muslims did so many wonderful things in the sciences until religious sank their prospects and futures. 

Love the algebra. No better proof than a mathematical one. 

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 12, 2016 at 12:25am

And there's that quip from a collection of supposed kids' quotes from school papers and exams: "We use algebraical variables when we don't know what we're talking about."

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 12, 2016 at 12:23am

Bertold, algebra was invented by those pagan, satanic Mooslims! :)
