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.

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 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!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

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

Questions......

   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

Ha!  I hadn't heard about Dan Savage's little challenge to Ben Carson, Grinning Cat.  Brilliant!  

Comment by Grinning Cat on June 23, 2015 at 11:40am
Homosexuality is a choice.  At least that's what the right-wing response would be...

Carl, I remember how Dan Savage responded to that myth: he challenged Ben Carson to turn gay, to show that that's possible, and "suck my dick."

LOL, Joan. Fantastic video. Especially, “On religious grounds we still fight and kill and maim / but we are good and innocent and not the ones to blame.”

Hi! Deidre, welcome back. How are you doing? Hope you are having fun.

Oh dear, playing the blame game when there are still so many unknowns. I guess this is where Fags of the Gaps" come into play. If we don't know why our world is so fucked up, it must be because of fags. 

God of the Gaps when we don't know.

I wasn't able to see a video of bögarnas fel so downloaded another copy. In case others couldn’t see the original video, I posted this one.

Homosexuals are to blame! (bögarnas fel - english translation)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 22, 2015 at 9:55pm

You can't blame straight couples.  Straight people don't make gay babies.  Homosexuality is a choice.  At least that's what the right-wing response would be to that notion.  "The gay" is caused by the influence of demonic forces, or by not having enough Jesus in your life, or by the relentless recruitment tactics of other homos who are fulfilling the tenets of their Big Gay Master Plan for World Domination.
