Latest Activity: yesterday

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 on Sunday. 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

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

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

But-but-but...the Palestinians WERE there....only they were called either Philistines or Canaanites...depending on who was speaking, and when.

Comment by Ian Mason on February 4, 2015 at 2:30pm

An interesting bit of rhetoric from that Israeli, Patricia.

I'm taking Mindy's "die" too. A very astute comment.

That sounds tasty, Joan. I might try that.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on February 4, 2015 at 11:48am

Mindy, once again you hit the ball out of the ballpark.  Spud mentions many times that he's "saving that one" and I confess, I often do the same thing. 

Joan, your chicken dinner sounds scrumptious.  A great medley of flavors.   

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 4, 2015 at 11:32am

Thanks, Spud, for Mindy's comment, "When you die..."

Here is a bit of information you are just eager to know. 

Monkey Mustaches Reveal Evolution of Facial Hair

There is some 'science' behind Groundhog Day

'If Candlemas be fair and bright, Come winter, take another flight. If Candlemas be clouds and rain, Go winter, come back not again,'"

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 4, 2015 at 11:00am

Snifters of snow, then rain, then another snifter. All winter long. I am eager to see how lilacs and tulips tolerate such conditions. Cary hosted me for dinner out last night to a most delicious chicken meal. It was served with rice and quinoa with cranberries and delicious light green slivers of Granny Smith Apple on top. Perfect blending of flavors. 

With Feb 1, the beginning of Imbolc, meaning lamb's milk, the Celtic beginning of spring and Feb 2 Groundhog's Day, marks the halfway point of winter on our calendar. Our groundhogs did not see their shadows in Spokane either. 

Richard Goscicki's book, Pot Stories and Humanist Essays provide me a wonderful time during this unpredictable winter's day.

Carl, I love the beer truck "commercial"! It sounded like the pushers were even having fun and a bit of excitement, trying to stay away from other parked cars. 

Kathy, very good advice for others as well, " I decided at this age l won't do anything l don't have to."

Felaine, in response to your comment, I Googled " Sr. Nutrition Program, Spokane, WA. and found several sources. Meal on Wheels is one and there was one funded by USDA US Dept of Agriculture, that coordinates with farmers and Senior Services to get food to low-income people. There was a couple of other small group programs. You may have something in your area that you could find via the internet.  

Mindy, I always know you provide great comments, and especially when others comment about them. Sorry, our machines don't talk to each other sometimes. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 4, 2015 at 9:54am

Another great one Mindy.  Pilfering it.

Comment by Plinius on February 4, 2015 at 9:43am

I love that one, Mindy!
