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.

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

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 0 Replies

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

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

Carl, we need adult supervision.

What the hell?!  I'm gone for a couple of days and when I come back you're talking about butt plugs!  I love Europe!

Nice to know Ruth is doing fine.  Thanks for checking, Grinning Cat.

Daniel, you have such a cozy looking home. Very inviting.

It's been chilly and rainy here. I just read Halloween is forecast to be 70-degrees and that we're supposed to have a bunch of snow starting mid-November.

I'm going to be making some nice chicken recipes in the slow-cooker the next couple of days. I love filling up the freezer with meals.

"Resembles a butt plug," Bertold?  Hell, it IS a butt plug ... for the Jolly Green Giant!

I love my 105 year old farm house, but the one thing it lacks is a fireplace. I have a wood burning furnace in the basement, but I can't watch the fire with a cup of coffee in hand.

Kathy, thanks for the link! Excellent information. I hope the family feel some peace.

LA Times today. Genetic evidence exonerates Canadian flight attendant widely blamed for bringing HIV to the USA. Fascinating article from both human and scientific perspectives.

Looks great, Daniel! I'll drop in some day...
