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.

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

Such Lyrics!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Friday. 8 Replies

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

Atheist Pig STRIKES AGAIN!!!

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

I've no idea about the cats, Spud. Just a Google search.

Mindy, well put, at least about the convinced, fully believing Christians. It's part of the mindware's "immune system" that suffering and dying "can't be" evidence that the belief system doesn't work so well, but rather reinforce that the mindware is "right" -- because everything will be made right in heaven.

I'll share again DarkMatter2525's video pointing out that most Christians might hope for heaven, but don't really believe in it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMaK6k4oZ20

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that those who have the most live the longest. Happy Birthday, Elaine!I'm glad you're here!

Ian, are those the singing cats from "Babe: Pig in the City"?

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 23, 2014 at 10:45am

Happy day after birthday Felaine.  Always sorry for your circumstances, and appreciate your humor.

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 23, 2014 at 10:43am

Love the Christian vs Atheist statements Mindy, and glad your feeling better.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 23, 2014 at 7:34am

Yes, Happy (now belated) Birthday, Felaine. I love your sense of humor and outlook on life's foibles.

Thanks to a piano moving outfit, the piano is officially in its new home. It cost $300 to move it, but worth every penny. Another $100 for tuning, and we're all set.

Mindy, gee I wish you felt better. It's no fun feeling icky.

The things I discover over my first cup of coffee...

Happy birthday, Felaine, I hope there's a wonderful year in store for you!
