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.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris yesterday. 14 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

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

   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

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Pleasantville was an amazing film. The first time I saw it, I thought I was in for a lame piece of fluff, but it developed a hell of a bite real fast. The gradual intro of color and reprise of courtroom scenes from To Kill a Mockingbird were brilliant.

Comment by Loren Miller on November 20, 2015 at 7:53am

I did indeed see Don in Pleasantville, and his was a wonderful touch to a movie I enjoy a lot.  That story, though, to put it at its mildest, was disturbing.

Comment by Greyfax Grimwald on November 20, 2015 at 7:07am

Is that the prequel to the TV series Smallville?

Comment by Randall Smith on November 20, 2015 at 7:04am

Insecure in life, insecure on stage. Poor Don. Did you ever see him in the movie, Pleasantville? A great movie, by the way.

For those of you who grew up with The Andy Griffith Show or watched the antics between Steve Allen and Don Knotts, this vignette, courtesy of delanceyplace.com, will doubtless come as something of a shock.  It sure did to me.

Wonderful video, Loren!  Lots of fun.  I elected to take a jazz dance class in college for the sole reason to get out of having to participate in marching band.  Believe me, I am NO dancer!  But it was fun.

Even Superman gets older.

Best wishes to you and your man, Ruth.  All the best.

Hope all goes well for you and hubby, Ruth.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrHxhQPOO2c

And hope your sister feels better soon, Carl. The pain meds will hopefully only be for a short while.

Those aren't my roses, k.h. ky, they grow by our gym parking lot. I had roses years ago and gave up due to Japanese beetles. They no only ate every petal, year after year, I couldn't even save the roses by putting netting bags over them. The little buggers ate up our roses by sticking their mouthparts through the tiny holes in the netting. That was the last straw.

Sorry to hear that your sister is having a hard time after helping you out, Flying Atheist. <sigh> Life isn't fair. I'm happy you're doing well.

Fun-filled  dance remix, Loren. This is a different universe of visual images that what I imagined when I hear the same song on the gym loudspeaker today. LOL Much more imaginative. Thanks!

I may not be around much the next 4 or 5 days. Hubby needs me to drive him for cataract surgery tomorrow and thereafter for follow up visits. This is the last time around. We'll both have artificial lenses in both eyes by noon tomorrow.
