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 Chris yesterday. 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!

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

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

You'll be glad that we're not praying at you, Carl  =^.^=

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 27, 2015 at 10:58am

Chris. I looked back a few pages and can't find what impresses me so much, and I can't remember. Whatever it was, it either inspired me or encouraged me.

The past several months I have heard some of the most idiotic religious talk. There's nothing like a major health condition that brings out the most ridiculous comments from people.
Comment by Idaho Spud on April 27, 2015 at 10:24am

Carl, so sorry to hear of the excruciating painful pluricy, but glad that you're on the mend.

Comment by Plinius on April 27, 2015 at 9:21am

No one but a xtian would claim someone else's lucky break, however small. I'd be livid too Randall.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 27, 2015 at 8:26am

Good to hear from you, Carl.  Please take care of YOU!

Comment by Randall Smith on April 27, 2015 at 7:59am
Yes, it's a relief to not only hear from you, Carl, but to know you're on the mend. You'll make it.
Reminds me of telling my sister that my thumb arthritis disappeared for a few days while on my cruise. It felt so good to be pain free. She replied "the power of prayer". For some reason, her comment made me livid. I informed her of studies/experiments done that prove prayer is worthless--in fact, just the opposite. Of course, she won't accept the truth. My arthritis has returned.

It's so good to hear from you, Carl. Keep getting well.

Comment by k.h. ky on April 27, 2015 at 12:21am
CARL, we are all so relieved to hear from you! And I cheerfully speak for all. Thanks for touching base now get back to getting well :))
Comment by Plinius on April 26, 2015 at 11:43pm

Carl! Good to see you're back! Happy to hear that you're on the mend!
