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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

Thanks, Ian! Trumpinde... the clones are popping up everywhere! Here one of the xian politicians has earned the name Wilders light, as in cola light.

Non illegitimi fascisti carborundum.

(Don't let the fascist bastards wear you down.)

Oh yes! Happy Vernal Equinox to everyone. 

Ruth, sorry to learn this POTUS 45 and all the enablers are getting you down. Wish I could think of a joke or something funny, but my funny bone doesn't come up with anything useful.

Nice one, Bertold.

Thank you, Ruth. The same to you and everyone here.

LOL, Bertold. Good one. I needed a dark laugh. Feeling depressed and terrified about the rise of fascism.

The government in DK is a liberal/neo-liberal/conservative coalition supported by the nationalists. (liberal means right-wing here). The Social Democrats are still the 3rd largest party. The Socialist party had a brief spell as part of a governing coalition a few years ago and lost a lot of support, most of it going to the United List, the most left-leaning of the major parties.

The current intergration minister has recently caused a scandal by celebrating her 50th tightening up of migration laws with a cake. The German magazine Bild has dubbed her 'Trumpinde'.

Chris, thanks for the article on Pence. I agree that we're on the brink of what will pretend to be God-led government, but will be a fascist corporatist police state.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 19, 2017 at 3:09pm

Thank you Berthold for the links to The Secular Web

I did not know about this resource. They go into my Reading List to read after I get back from the greenhouse.
