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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller on Thursday. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

how dogma pollutes discourse (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

Got back yesterday from a trip to England. Spent several days showing a friend around London and then a long weekend with family. All very nice. Will post a few pics.

Its a pitiful A, but still clearer than most claimed images of jebus.

It's a modern miracle! After a little windstorm this atheist "A" appeared on my driveway.

. . .Or is it anarchist? Or asshole??

To me "motivational speaker" is an oxymoron, and in the later years of my life few things have been easier to hate than Windows (Apple is an exception). Yet, Bill Gates gave a graduation speech that I think qualifies as inspirational, and I don't say that sort of thing lightly. I was struck by his humble tone.

Bill Gates has a message for every college grad who wants to change the world

I just filled out a "rate your trip" form for the Road Scholars Tuscany trip I recently completed. I don't like doing it, but I had some concerns. First of all, no trip is perfect. Secondly, we each respond differently due to our interests and personalities. I want to be sincere without sounding picky. Overall, I will give the experience a B+ and would recommend the trip to those interested in the region.

Villages, fields and the beach, Carl. All very nice although you have to be careful when running on farm tracks. They're really just wheel ruts from tractors and rather uneven.
