Hang With Friends

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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

I hate to sound like an atheist preacher,

Generally people are kind and compasionate.

Religion is immeterial to that.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 21, 2017 at 12:25pm

That's what I was wondering Chris.

Comment by Chris on January 21, 2017 at 12:16pm

I wonder if atheists are more apt to offer a sholder to cry on and listen without judging or gawd forbid bringing up Abrahamic religionious stuff............

Comment by Chris on January 21, 2017 at 12:01pm

As Atheists how do we grieve.

Just like everyone else does.

Comment by Loren Miller on January 21, 2017 at 11:27am

That is positively lousy news, Daniel.  For all the pix I saw of him, I can't escape the feeling that Baigou was a neat dog and doubtless a great friend to you.  Condolences, bro.

Comment by Plinius on January 21, 2017 at 11:21am

(Sloppy reading!)

So sorry for your loss, Daniel! But think of all that Baigou and you have shared and given to each other. The world would be a sorry place if we stopped loving because of the pain. Take some time off to remember Baigou.

Actually, people could make life a lot more fair if they wanted to.  And just to be clear, I'm not talking about you atheist peeps.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 21, 2017 at 10:22am

Daniel, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 21, 2017 at 10:20am

It seems most of you peeps are younger than me, but have more physical problems than me.  Not fair is it?  

The response to that sentence is usually "Who said life is fair?"  Well, not me.  But it should be.  If there were a loving god, it would be.  People could make life a little more fair if they wanted to.

Nice way to make contact!
