Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 1 hour ago

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.

A ridiculous claim should be recognized as such as a matter of course, shouldn't it?  Shouldn't It?!?  What happens if that claim is so imbued and integrated into society over hundreds if not thousands of years that it has been taken as TRUTH…Continue

coming out (TheraminTrees)

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

If God Exists (DarkMatter2525)

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

Get better soon, Ruth!

Ruth, here's a nice bowl of tomato soup with garlic toast. I'm thinking of you healing, resting, and restoring your energy.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 21, 2016 at 1:23am

Thank you, Grinning Cat, on the update on Ruth. Good news she doesn't need a stent. 

Ruth, I hope you can relax even though restricted! Can you just lay back and enjoy the inactivity? I see you have a piece on Climate Concerns. Can't keep a good person down! 

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 21, 2016 at 1:07am

Just wanted to let everyone know that Ruth's heart catheterization went well yesterday (Tuesday). She did not need a stent; only meds.

To ensure that the puncture site near her right wrist heals properly, she's supposed to treat her wrist as if it's broken for three days, even though it doesn't hurt anymore. No bending it, no carrying anything heavier than 5 pounds, and it's taped to a splint. That makes typing inconvenient, so she won't be writing on here as much as she'd like.

I goofed, big time; old news, old weather news report and I forgot to include the article that caught my attention. Worse, yet, I can't find the original piece. Sorry

Kelly, Nigeria and Iran are two countries that have the death penalty for gays. There are others. Prison time with hard labor are common punishment.

Google it. I think you will be shocked.

Christianity Debunked Using Science and History - Richard Carrier

Here is on of the firebrands, using critical thinking skills to analyze evidence 

Comment by Plinius on January 19, 2016 at 7:16am

I like it, Ian, clear and well told, but I don't like that depression.

You reminded me of my own "spider", so I'll put it here:

Between hope and fear

on a silken thread

..

from cantilever window

to the window-frame

I build security

without  a doubt.

..

I’m a spider.
