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 Feb 19. 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

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

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

Wow, Joan.  What a treasure you have one block from your house.  The photos are beautiful.  I'm very envious!  Whenever I have daydreamed of being a multimillionaire, I've ALWAYS envisioned myself living on a large estate with beautiful surrounding gardens like that.  Thanks for sharing!

What a beautiful park Joan.  I'd love to spend time there.  I have ducks and geese fly over my house often also, and I enjoy watching them.

Idaho Spud, No, I don't have a cat myself, but I have a wildlife refuge in my back yard and every cat in the neighborhood knows about it and comes calling every day. They had regular patterns, some come once a day, others more frequently. I have set up bird feeders and water with cages around them so the birds can escape the pouncing cat, thus, I have the best of both worlds. And I don't have to take care of anything, other than fill bird food and water daily. If I don't, the birds have a lovely pond just a block away from my home. Ducks and geese nest to the east of my house and fly over every morning on the way to their pond. A lovely sight to see them in formation going about their daily routine.

Thanks sk8eycat - that was interesting.

Hope all of you are having a good day.

As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, it suddenly occurred to me that I don 't really care.
Think about this:
1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat.
3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years.
4. A tortoise doesn 't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.
And you 're telling me to exercise? I don 't think so. I 'm retired. Go around me.

What a beautiful hummingbird picture you posted Tony.

I saw a hummingbird just the other day in the yard by one of the apple trees.

Joan Denoo, I'm seriously considering bringing a cat home to live with me and wonder if you have any thoughts on the subject.  I get the idea you don't have one.

Subwoofers made me smile :)
