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.

Went into the chat room last Friday night, for the first time in a while, and learned that Mequa passed away. I had been good friends with him for a time, but we had differences and stopped talking back in the spring of this year. I knew however,…Continue

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

I like the sound of Steven Weinberg's voice. He has a calming impact on me as I rush to get my home of 41 years ready to sell and plan and put into motion the new garden at my daughter's home. My home is full o empty boxed quickly filling with the…Continue

TheraminTrees has recently begun producing a new series of YouTube videos, which added to a wonderful library of earlier observations regarding his experience of religion. Good as all those pieces are, I personally think they pale against this…Continue

Somebody sent me this link, but I don't "do" FlakeBook, and I refuse to register with them to see just one page.   Anybody interested in checking this out?

Hi Debbie.  Welcome!  Lot's of great people and interesting topics here.  Enjoy the rally.  I'll be home to see if and how the mainstream media covers this event.

Hello Friends! New here, I am.

I live on the eastern shore of Maryland. Can't wait til this weekend! Here's hoping that the weather cooperates!

Comment by Simone Rosa on March 19, 2012 at 11:35pm

I had this event on my calendar and was planning to attend (especially since it coincides with the Cherry Blossom Festival) but being sick for 3+ wks has sidelined me as well as stopping my income stream so this is out of the question for me due to expense, illness and my project schedule. 

 

On a related note, I haven't heard a SINGLE WORD about this event in the mainstream media channels (not even NPR) which causes concern for how effective the event will be.  I sincerely hope there's some media coverage of this weekend's event so the effort isn't in vain.

Yes I plan on going to the Reason Rally. It will be great!

My local MeetUp group, FACT (Forsyth Area Critical Thinkers) has a 15 passenger van rented, leaving at 2AM Saturday. I'm going to the Meet Up on Wednesday to decide, and if there are still openings (looks good). It all depends on whether I have to go down to Kannapolis (outside of Charlotte)  that weekend to pick up our PT Cruiser (which is getting an new engine among other things).

Comment by Loren Miller on March 19, 2012 at 8:30pm

I thought hard about going to the Reason Rally, but it may be just as well I don't.  For openers, that's money spent that could go elsewhere (still unemployed), and as it turns out, I'm available to take care of my best friend's cat while he's away over that weekend.

Still, I look forward to a LOT of stories of what goes on here and beau coup YouTube videos of the event as well.
