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 myth of religions

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

"Atheists in many foxholes served"...

Let's also work towards a society that's free and thriving and where, while we recognize our appetite for aggression, war is not an "acceptable" "last resort", and "soldiers" and "armies" are simply not conceivable as things civilized people do.

Qiana, I like your Dark ages encounter, and Atheists are everywhere.  Saving both.

Comment by Grinning Cat on August 10, 2016 at 3:14pm

Qiana, thanks for sharing those perfect edits of the Ark Encounter billboards, from Friendly Atheist!

Joan and K.H., Dan Rather excoriated Trump on Facebook for his "Second Amendment" threat, "a new low and unprecedented": "The rhetoric is the candidate. This cannot be treated as just another outrageous moment in the campaign."

There are also quite a few comments over in "Atheist Reasoning on Gun Control" worth reading.

Reposting from there, Democratic Underground pointed out:

So Apparently The Party Of Lincoln Is Now The Party Of John Wilkes Booth [picture of Donald Trump giving a speech] “If [Hillary Clinton] gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I dunno.” -- Donald Trump, 8/9/16
