Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Such Lyrics!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Friday. 8 Replies

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

Atheist Pig STRIKES AGAIN!!!

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

The Burial Waltz

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Some William Blake to Ponder

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Donatien Alphonse François Apr 25. 6 Replies

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

Calm over here, some gusts of wind and rain but nothing out of the ordinary. Tomorrow perhaps stormy weather.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 27, 2016 at 12:45pm

Our North European friends have heavy winds today. I am interested in how winds felt to the individuals.

Here we had 'god zij met ons' on the rim of coins, but the Euros show no gods, only markings for the blind. Much better!

I often take a black marker to cross out "In God We Trust" on dollar bills. I'd like to do it to Indiana license plates, too, but I'm afraid I'll get caught.

Quite right, Bertold.

From Atheists Against Pseudoscientific Nonsense:

The reason why scientists and intellectuals don’t respect religion is because religion disrespects human intelligence, that is why we ridicule it. Religion is currently in its death throes and should be allowed to fade away so we as humanity can move on to bigger and better things.

For any fans of Walker, Texas Ranger:

Another lover of dumbocracy and freedumb! You gotta love the implication that besides being godless rabble, atheists are unpatriotic as well.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 25, 2016 at 10:57pm

A good quote. Bertold. Odd that it somes from someone that was such a strict Xtian.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 25, 2016 at 8:05pm

Astute quote, Bertold.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 25, 2016 at 8:05pm

I hadn't known about James Martin's death. Thanks. An notification is an "in case of death" list is a great idea.
