Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 878
Latest Activity: on Friday

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.

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

Paula - Here's the really sad part from David Barton's bio:

"David is the author of numerous best-selling books..."

..."David has received numerous national and international awards, including Who's Who in Education, DAR's Medal of Honor, and the George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge. His work in media has merited several Angel Awards, Telly Awards, and the Dove Foundation Seal of Approval."

I saw that clip last night and could not stop laughing.....after I picked my jaw off the floor!  Does he think that if he believes hard enough, other people will, too?? 

 

Susi, I looked for David, too, but too many too choose from  lol

Comment by Susi Bocks on June 10, 2011 at 9:06pm

David - I saw that video earlier (I check in to Pharyngula several times a day), and it blew me away. Our founding fathers already debated creationism? Where do these people come from???

A Facebook friend of mine posted this. Amazing. All of my friends here are welcome to add me on Facebook. I am still heavily outnumbered by my deist friends :)

I have taught many different ages from 3rd grade to college, I really like teaching 5 th grade best. 

Thank y'all for the welcome messages.

Thanks for the invite to the group.  I look forward to getting to know all of you.  In the past atheism was not something celebrated or discussed.  If one was "plagued" with this dysfunction, it was kept quite.  Closet doors open and light floods in, how nice.
