Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 865
Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

Some William Blake to Ponder

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Donatien Alphonse François on Tuesday. 6 Replies

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

God's Not Dead - The Christian Persecution Complex (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Annie Willis Apr 20. 7 Replies

Doubtless most if not all of you have heard about that sorry piece of cinema known as God's Not Dead, and perhaps its sequel, cleverly entitled: God's Not Dead 2 (wow, how original!).  Personally, I have wasted neither time nor money on either,…Continue

The Value of Atheist Nexus ... and of Keeping Contact

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 17. 13 Replies

I don't know about you, but the last 24+ hours were VERY uncomfortable for me.  Why?  Because something I value a LOT, being Atheist Nexus and the people I care about on A|N were temporarily unavailable to me.  No, we're not Facebook; I don't think…Continue

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Today, Christmas, doesn't feel any different than any other day--except for the radio music. Home alone all day and glad for it!

Here's wishing you all good health and happy non-theistic thoughts.

I'm gonna make cram-berry sawse in the morning, and put orange zest and juice in it...and 2 tsp cinnamon.  YUM!  Good on biscuits or toast.  Or chicken.  Or Yams.  ALL of that!

Now that I have REAL food to cook, I'm not hungry.  Yet.

Oh!  Pet fans, I bought some of that new stuff for my cats..."Beyond"....they really snarfed it down, but it's expensive.  $1.30 for a small 3 oz. can.  They will get it for an occasional treat, but not every day. 

But Pumpkin just came in and thanked me...my sweet little old man will be 16 on Jan. 1st.  Still acts like a juvenile; looks like one, too.  (He was a bit of a runt; his feral mother was much too young to have kittens when she got pregnant.  She went to live in Kanab, Utah, at the Best /Friends Sanctuary....no place else would accept her.)

Sounds like a good feast, K.H.  I heartily approve of all your choices!  Enjoy the time with your loved ones.

If I met a Satyr, I'd want him to bring me to Camp Half-Blood ASAP! (I just made a reference to a book series called Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which although is meant for middle school students, and I'm in my 20's, I admit to really enjoying!)

I hope you all have enjoyable holidays, with or without snow, as you prefer.
