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.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris on Sunday. 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!

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

   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

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

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

That's a great video, Joan.  What a beautiful facility for those who need it, both the elderly and the young.

Kathy, I've been thinking recently about Pat (from southern Illinois) as well.  I noticed he hasn't been around for some time. I hope he's OK.

Damned auto correct! That should have been ky of course ;)

Loren, you're weather is also very similar to ours' here in western NY.
Have you caught the new show *Full Frontal* with Samantha Bee on the comedy central network? If you haven't I highly recommend it. I remember you too are a fan of Jon Stewart's. Samantha Bee is the next best thing IMHO.

At 8 AM this morning in Cleveland, Ohio, it was 82°F, and right now (1:02 PM) it is 93!!!  I've heard of Dog Days, but this is ridiculous!

Crazy weather, cold one day searing hot the next. I, too, spend a lot of my time reading. 

True to my nature, I am reading 

Can "It" Happen Again?: Essays on Instability and Finance (Routledge Classics) by Hyman Minsky.

Carl, I believe you and I are caught in the same heat/rain cycle. Except we're getting more rain and flash floods in the south. Hopefully you're surviving this summer and getting stronger.
I haven't seen a post from Pat lately have you?

By the way, Kathy, I hope you're also staying cool.
