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 Loren Miller 7 hours ago. 16 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

God's Annual Performance Review (Betty Bowers)

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

Started by Daniel W. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 2. 28 Replies

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…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

Questions......

   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

Chris, it is about time a good event fell into your lap and I know you enjoyed it. Hope your good luck comes in huge batches. I am very happy to learn that Dido is recovering. 

Randy, may you have a happy journey, great health, delicious food, beautiful sights, and interesting conversation! 

We had virtually no winter. April showers expected this Saturday. Feels very odd for February! The sun is now well above the trees and our solar greenhouse is getting some solar heat once again. All the brassicas survived. Lettuce appears to be coming back to life.

Happy traveling, Randy.

Weather service was predicting one to seven inches of snow here. That fizzled out to a light dusting on the grass only. Sidewalks are all clear.

It's been an unusually warm winter. That sure is nice but it ain't normal.

Have a good trip, Randall.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 25, 2016 at 7:37am

Well, the so-called "blizzard" fizzled, except for the winds. It just so happened I was on the fringe with about 2-3" of snow, whereas 20 miles west of me got a foot. Whew--dodged a bullet!

See you all in 10 days.

Comment by Loren Miller on February 25, 2016 at 5:34am

Thursday morning and there's a light dusting of snow on the ground in my front yard.  How much we get from this point onward will be interesting to see.  I have to say, though, that this has been one of the weirdest winter seasons I have seen in 65 years.

New computers are always tedious, until everything's just right. Hubby's a pro and it still takes him almost two weeks until he gets every detail redone when I get a replacement. I wish you well, Plinius.

Great LOL, Flying Atheist!

Randall, I don't envy your foot of snow. At 9:12 PM, here - just north of Philly - it's 63°F. BTW, Arctic Sea Ice has been melting already since Feb 9th. When the wavy jet stream sends equatorial warmth to the North Pole it also sends North Pole cold straight down to you.

Comment by Plinius on February 24, 2016 at 8:39am

Take care with that snow, Randall!

Comment by Ian Mason on February 24, 2016 at 8:00am

What a pleasant experience, Chris. Hope that went some way to making up for bad ones.

Hope you survive the snow, Randall. Make the best of it with hot chocolate or mulled wine according to taste.

Comment by Loren Miller on February 24, 2016 at 7:51am

Carl, that pic is HILARIOUS!  Inner peace for the "Me" generation!  HAR!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 24, 2016 at 7:39am

I'm currently in the midst of a snow storm with blizzard warnings in counties immediately to the west of me. Might get a foot of snow by tomorrow. Then, the day after that, I'm planning to drive south to Florida--or should I say "was planning". I might not be able to get out of my driveway! Great timing. Bummer.
