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 on Sunday. 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

Lovely to hear that, Carl. Truly a suprise to hear from you so soon. I hope you and your sister make speedy recoveries. Yes, Joan, science at its best. To think that such a procedure is on its way to being routine.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 12, 2015 at 11:56pm

Carl, this is good news, indeed. I am astounded you respond to us on the same day as the transplant! You and your sister amaze me; your well-trained surgical team performed what at one time would have been called magic, some would say a miracle, and we know it as science at its best. 

My thoughts for a full recovery and good health for you both. I can't even imagine how grateful your family must be and proud to be on your team.

Well, today was my transplant surgery. Everything went extremely well for both my sister and me. My new kidney is functioning normally. So now begins my long-awaited recovery and return to better health.

I grew up with Peggy Lee. She was so hot! So were Lena Horne and Julie London. My mother loved their singing. I just loved their sexiness!

Flying Atheist, you got me at "diaper changing on beverage tray tables."

Comment by k.h. ky on November 8, 2015 at 2:37pm
Ian,I'm sure l speak for everyone when I say we are looking forward to it.
Comment by Ian Mason on November 8, 2015 at 2:23pm

Carl, I've often thought that I tend to get sniffles after travelling and put it down to spending time in a metal tube with 150 other people. Thanks for the practical tips.

A lovely, cheerful song, Joan. Thanks.

I will attempt to translate some poems in the coming days and hope you'll like them.

A wonderful, wonderful song by Peggy Lee!!  Thanks, Joan!
