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

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

Thanks Paula for the evolvefish link. Who knew we'd need so many replacement feet for vandalized emblems. I especially liked

My only problem is that the evolvefish meme is derivative of the Xian meme, and perpetuates it through mockery.

Aw, but we should be sympathetic towards the plight of the rich guy: he can't help that his wealth is making him socially and emotionally inferior to the rest of us.

Romney is super rich and gets tax breaks - can you believe he won't release his taxes? He has something to hide. I bet he pays hardly any taxes at all. He is getting loopholes. He was quoted as saying that he only pays like 13% or something like that. He is getting off cheap. He's a big liar like all the rest of those politicians. I think that's all they do now - just lie to everyone.

"How many people think the poor live".......Apparently, Romney does because he said he wasn't worried about them.

That's real funny Patricia - I love the comic you posted.

Thanks.

That's really cute booklover - I love it - I'll have to add that one to my collection. It's great for biology too. : )

The wide-open eyes on that cat looking at the jumping dust-bunny is so amusing.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 16, 2012 at 11:26am

So, the xtian mafia is going around breaking legs?  I'm not surprised. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 16, 2012 at 11:04am

Thanks for the link Paula.  I thought replacement feet was just a joke, but I can believe they might be needed sometimes.  It is sad (and anger-inducing) that we have to put-up with vandalism from those 'loving' people.

I like several of those takeoffs on the fish.  My favorites are the one that says "Bite Me" and the fishy rocket ship that says "Science".
