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

Happy Anniversary, Mindy, to you and your husband!

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 9, 2015 at 10:05am

27 years.  Good on you Mindy.  And, I agree about the trade-off.

Joan, you have a Mac computer don't you?  I don't know a whole lot about computers, but perhaps that's the reason you can see my pictures more often than others.  Mac to Mac.  Anyone that knows computers, tell me if that's a reasonable thought or no.

Congrats Mindy! And wishes for 27 happy years more!

Comment by Steph S. on January 9, 2015 at 9:18am

Congrats on your wedding anniversary Mindy. I hope you guys have a wonderful celebration.

Congrats Mindy!

Loved it, Ian!  No luck on your site, Carl.

For you readers out there, Diane Ackerman, author of The Zookeeper's Wife (among others), has a new book out: The Human Age. Really good! It's about our brave new world in reality. Insightful and full of information. What a writer she is!

Good one, Ian. (Someone else here just recently posted a George Carlin quote noting that god always needs money.)

Pretty as a picture, Mindy.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 9, 2015 at 1:26am

Mindy, well, if I were as pretty as you, seeing many copies of myself would make me feel magnificent. However, I see only one of you, and it was from Spud. For some reason, Patricia's didn't come through either. Mindy, your hair was long and pretty; it makes quite an impression! If you were a cheerleader, I imagine your swirling hair as you went through your routines. 

Sorry to ask for another help, I didn't get Carl's most recent photo either.
