Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

Daniel, bamboo tile is on the kitchen floor in this house. It's different than the flooring you have. I went to a national flooring store and asked how to clean and maintain the floor. I also asked about products for the natural hardwood floors. That met with blank looks.

Go figure, no one knew the answer as I was pointed to carpet.

I haven't been able to log on to AN for the last day so a slightly belated Happy New Year to all.

Your kitchen is something special, Daniel and I'm sure you're proud of it.

That's a lovely view, Joan. Are you enjoying it in a comfy chair with a hot drink?

1.3 million cable tv viewers were without their telly on new year's eve, incluing me. I don't care but there must be many who are angry at missing the queen's annual speach and the yearly showing of 'Dinner for One.'

I have a proposal: Let's eliminate the word "happy" in "Happy New Year" and substitute it with a more appropriate adjective. Happy belongs to birthdays, a one day event.

Unless I have access to a computer, I'll be away for the next two weeks--Mexico Beach, Florida! See you all when I return--and I will return!

A very Happy New Year to my dear friends of Atheist Nexus. 

Jared snow plowing around the fire pit where our Yule logs will burn tonight; Dominic watching.

Yes... Happy new year!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 31, 2016 at 3:30pm

Happy new year everyone. We're getting a touch of snow, and going to neighbors for cedar plank salmon.

Daniel, your kitchen can be featured in any of the leading magazines on design and kitchens. It looks like a comfortable kitchen in which to do our bread, pies and produce from your garden. Lights under the cabinets offer significant advantages. I envy you the garbage pull-out. Clearly, you put a lot of thought into the design. 

I'm happy to learn iron infusion gave you more energy, especially facing the task such as yours. 

Comment by Loren Miller on December 31, 2016 at 11:09am

You do damned fine work, Daniel.  I wish I were that skilled.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 31, 2016 at 10:32am

Nice looking kitchen 2.0 Daniel.  

No, I'm not French.  Most of my ancestors lived in Wales, some in England, I think some in Ireland, and some in Sweden or Switzerland.  I forget which.
