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 Loren Miller yesterday. 16 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

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

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

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

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

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

Loren, the interview was conducted by Savage: 

Adam Savage Interviews 'The Martian' Author Andy Weir - The Talking...

A great interview and a great teaser making me want to see the movie. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 24, 2015 at 10:13pm

Carl, the video not only cheers me up but gives me some eye-candy to enjoy as well.

I guess I've lost track, Joan - which interview and which film?

Comment by Randall Smith on June 24, 2015 at 7:24am

Carl, not my style, but it IS "feel good" music. Thanks for sharing. Hope you're doing well. You sound happy enough.

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 23, 2015 at 11:30pm

Loren, a great interview! I love problem-solving films and this one sounds like problems from beginning to end. Savage's office looks like mine, floor to ceiling, wall to wall books.  Andy Weir seems like a nice fellow, interesting the way he wrote his books. I look forward to the film.

Thanks, Sk8eycat.  I really enjoyed the Jimmy Buffett song. 

I've been listening to a lot of Spanish and Portuguese ballads the past couple of years.  They are so beautiful and emotional.  I built an entire Pandora Music Radio station around them. 

The video I posted earlier, Canta Corazon (Heart Song), was sung by Mexican international superstar Alejandro Fernandez

I hope nobody here minds, but here is another version of the same song.  This is sung by Peruvian Gian Marco, who actually composed the song.  It's performed at a slower tempo with a Reggaeton shuffle feel.  I think it's great.

That works big-time, Carl!  Molto grazie!

Comment by sk8eycat on June 23, 2015 at 9:50pm

Carl, I love Mexican ballads...and mariachi music, and a LOT of Caribbean music.  This is a "Thank you."
