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 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

In D.C. The smithonian and other museums are interesting to explore.  There isn't enough time to view them all.

Explore what you are interested in.

Ian, I went to DC for the freethought rally this June.  Never went before that.  I really liked some of the museums.  It depends on what you enjoy.  My favorites were the National Gallery, the Arboretum, and walking around the mall looking at monuments, including Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, MLK Memorial.  Those last two were tear jerkers for me.  By all means, try to find some classic Southern food, although I don't have recommendations for where you might find that.  But it would be part of the local color.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 10, 2017 at 7:53pm

Ian - that's great. You'll have an amazing time. (Good timing too, while we're still here.)

Comment by Ian Mason on January 10, 2017 at 7:32pm

I'm seriously considering a trip to the U.S. this August with a possible itinery of New York, Washington and Charleston (for the eclipse). Do any of you have any tips? Should I do things in the order above or in reverse? I know that those places are hot and humid at that time of year.

Looks like what was being called the Pinapple express moved south.

Spud, those Idaho laws have to be among the funniest in the nation. I wonder what brought them to the law books? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 8, 2017 at 12:35am

Danial, good news, and bad news, indeed. I hope there is no damage and that you find a remedy that works. 

A storm came through Newport the other night with -18 degree F. Your expected storm looks as tough it might be a bad one. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 8, 2017 at 12:10am

Looks great, Daniel.  I really love the color scheme and your choice of tile.  I hope the frozen pipes haven't caused damage.  

I'm not surprised at all the crazy laws that are or once were on the books.  Afterall, there was a time when it was scandalous to see a woman's bare ankles.   

Comment by k.h. ky on January 7, 2017 at 11:24pm
Daniel it looks wonderful so far. Major improvement over the last photos. Do you have heat tape on your water pipes that run inside the house.
Comment by Daniel W on January 7, 2017 at 9:09pm

Wow, Spud.  That's weird about cannibalism. I had no idea!  I suspect you can't buy or sell long pig due to USDA safe food regulations, but I could be wrong.  Murder and desecration of a corpse would be illegal in most places, but is barbecue considered desecration? 

Frowning with intent to scowl.  Frightening!  But it's OK to carry a firearm?

Here's the endless kitchen project progress report.  Good news / bad news.  Good news is the range hood is up, as is the under-cabinet lighting.   There is still beaucoup work needed on trim, details, & tons of cleanup.  County inspection is required before we get propane.  Bad news is the water pipes  and/or well head froze last night & I have to wait for thaw to find out what's wrong.  Country living!
