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.

If you spend any time around YouTube and have any history of looking at atheist material (or even theist material!), you will inevitably run into: "XX Questions Atheists Can't Answer."  These are occasionally followed by: "XX Questions Atheists…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jun 3. 1 Reply

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

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

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

How would you respond?

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

What is the story on Terrence Meaden?  I see the question asked, but for some reason I don't see the answer that people are thanking Chris and Kathy for. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 15, 2016 at 6:56pm

What the hell did that guy THINK was going to happen?!

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 15, 2016 at 5:44pm

What a maroon.  What an ultra maroon.  I could only watch a small portion of this.  I can't stand to see people try to kill themselves.

Don't try this at home, at the office, in your car, in a pool, maybe just in-sane.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 15, 2016 at 5:22pm

Daniel, do you, or anyone, have any idea why this guy would try such a stunt? He i horribly burned and he must be in a lot of pain for a long time. I hope he gets some medical help!

Rationale: 

1. Wanted to get publicity?

2. Wanted t commit suicide?

3. Is insane? 

4. Stupid can't be fixed? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 15, 2016 at 12:13am

Chris, thanks for the information about Terence Meaden. I have been looking for his new book.

The exploding palm tree I mean ; )

Carl, you know you can't trust an army of air filled snowmen.

Bert, that should be posted on a porn site. Lol
Comment by Plinius on December 14, 2016 at 10:58am

I friended him on Facebook, where he posts about the Stromberg circle and his new book.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 13, 2016 at 10:14am

Joan, I agree that those santas and snowmen are ugly, and the money could be put to much better use.

Comment by Ian Mason on December 13, 2016 at 12:53am

Carl, those assembled ranks look quite threatening. Perhaps they're caged up for a reason. And yes, the e-mails seem to come in batches every second day.

Glad to see that you're making progress, Daniel. I'm one of those with two left hands and ten thumbs.

Funny posts, Bertold, even though I don't know much about Nietzsche
