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.

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

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 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

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

Hope everybody is doing well. It's been sort of quiet around A/N. I notice only a handful of members are online at any one time, and there are few comments. New members seem to join and then abandon us. It's difficult to socialize with ones self. Since we don't (as a rule) celebrate Christmas, what's the excuse?

Congrats Ludwig! I liked the google animation/puzzle!

Chris, oh good, I was looking at the correct bldg! A lovely spot in a beautiful city. I like the architecture. Everything looks so green.

Ian, I Google Earthed  Odder, Denmark. It looks like a ring fort on the east side of town. Is that correct? What is the history of your part of the world? What types of work supports Odder?

Chris I like this a lot. It reminds me of the neighborhood l was raised in in the Chicago area as a young child. I liked it. We were in walking distance of anything we needed. Movie theatre, five blocks down take a right! City park, restaurant, grocery, clothing you name it! I didn't want to move to the country and have never really liked it. That's not true. I enjoy it very much in the spring and summer : )

Good luck, Randy. I just got reamed at both ends, and Friday I get to have a wisdom tooth chopped out.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 15, 2015 at 7:37am

In a few minutes I visit my doctor for my annual physical. I don't expect anything unusual, but you never know. My blood tests were good. He'll ask if I've had my flu shot, and I'll say NEVER. Then we'll argue about its effectiveness. He may think my cholesterol is too high (266), but my HDL is 88, so the ratio is within recommended limits. We'll see.

Comment by Ian Mason on December 14, 2015 at 10:23am

That looks like a good place to live, Chris. And the other pictures show a clean and neat town. Gin and ships: sort of what one might expect of the Netherlands.

I've tried to find my road on Google street view but it's too unimportant to be included. I will have to take a pic at some point. I've also looked for Odder, Denmark via Google images but most show the nearby coast and surrounding villages rather than the town itself.
