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

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

Tony I love your puppies picture! So cute!
Well I do much better without any wheat, and I eat lots of protein so for me the wheat free lifestyle is working. So just find out what works for you. Anyways, the book is fascinating and well written. He discusses how humans evolved and what our ancestors ate. I am enjoying the book.

Good morning all!  On the wheat/carb topic:  there is certainly enough evidence that shows it is a problem but not for all people.  Some of us absolutely cannot have grains (celiac here) yet there are others who cannot have excess amounts of proteins.  It's not a one or the other, black vs white situation.  

A lot of criticism is shown towards the "blood type" or "body type" diets but it's worth examining them simply because they place emphasis on the importance of variance within our species, and knowing your body.

@Tony: that is the cutest picture ever!  Or at least at this time in the AM :P

Replacement Darwin Fish legs is funny!

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 16, 2012 at 7:36am

Tony, I love the God Sent Darwin bumper sticker!

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 16, 2012 at 7:30am

That's a fascinating video (or whatever) Patricia.  Do you know if it's real, and if so why is the dog walking like that?

Heading off to work. Ya'll have a great day!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 16, 2012 at 12:31am

Great dog pics, thanks!

I would have to do some research to evaluate that wheat free diet. There are so many diet claims and diet books. I saw one study that compared health of people who had various kinds of diets and was surprised to learn that those who ate lots of pasta did well. Now I can't find a link. Sorry. Pasta is also part of a Mediterranean diet. So I have questions.

That's true Tony - friends do come in all shapes and sizes - thanks for the cute pic!

Friends come in all shapes and sizes. Cherish them at all times.
