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.

...but intelligent people believe in God (DarkMatter2525)

A ridiculous claim should be recognized as such as a matter of course, shouldn't it?  Shouldn't It?!?  What happens if that claim is so imbued and integrated into society over hundreds if not thousands of years that it has been taken as TRUTH…Continue

coming out (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Atheist in FundyLand Dec 23, 2015. 6 Replies

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

If God Exists (DarkMatter2525)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Dec 23, 2015. 4 Replies

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

Happy Birthday, Felaine.  I'm honored to know you.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 22, 2014 at 10:20pm

Felaine, A very happy birthday! Gee, I didn't know today was the day for celebration of your 75 years! Let's make it a special one. How about using your Dell/Windoze to write your life's story. You have a really great life to record. 

This is a milestone of epic proportions.

Mindy, I'm having my own pity party; shall we join up?  It's my 75th birthday, I got ONE card, from a friend who is very conscientious about such things, and I finally got my Dell/Windoze back, but everything is different....so I'm re-learning everything.

I think I'll just give up and go to bed.  G'nite, all.

Oh! Mindy! How awful. Feeling unwell just sucks. I know you have tried everything. The things we suggested didn't work or you had tried them before. So! Now that we know your reality, how can we be supportive of you in a way that helps brighten your day? If you find anything that helps, let us know so we can give it a try.

I know a few members here are from Canada, but I don't know how many, if any of you live in or around Ottawa. I don't mean to sound like a downer, but  what happened in Ottawa today is awful. And  I just want to say that I'm sending all my  love and thoughts not just to the people of Ottawa, or the Ontario Province, but to everyone in Canada today.

Ian, that's a cute little ditty.  Now time for a cup of tea.

Yes, thanks Carl.

Spud, here's the link for the cat gif.  Does this work for you?
