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

Slapstick seems to be a man thing. In most cases.
Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2015 at 9:16am

I still think Jesus never existed....except as a Latino baseball player.  And Larry was one of the three stooges.  A "comedy" team I never could wrap my head around.  I thought their  slapstick routines were disgusting.

"Mohammed" was a beautiful young man who is now dreadfully brain-damaged by the non-sport of boxing.

That would be cozy! I'd love to meet you here!

Yes I read it too. We still have our own little bible belt, but it's more a last resistance - a struggle about blasphemy laws, the right to ring church bells or about Sunday shopping.

Also interesting was was the outcome of research into the idea that people in the country are more neighborly than people in urban areas. Research showed it was the other way around. I'm glad of it because most people live in urban areas.

Joan, I can't answer your first question. On the second, both--eggs first (and they start laying in 5 months!), then meat (in 2 years).

I'm being "scoped" tomorrow (Tues), so today is "yuck day". No solid foods and taking the good ol' "eradicator" stuff. It's only been <4 years since my last scope, but they found polyps (benign) and recommended a 3 year follow-up. Procrastination time is over.

A beautiful dream! I'm so sorry that I could never take part in projects like these!

Here is a skill set for women to develop! 

Natural homes built by inspirational women around the world.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 19, 2015 at 1:40am

Randy, 240 chicks will turn out to be identified as male and female later? Will these chick be raised for eggs and meat? It looks like their summer will be busy! 

Patricia, I guess the pope poops just like the rest of us people.

Well, if London would have been buried by horse dung if the past trends were true today, now we have the trend lines that say London will be covered with water if all the Polar ice melts. I guess we live in the best of times.  

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 19, 2015 at 1:11am

And if that London horse dung was laid end to end, it would reach the moon and back to earth how many times?

Comment by Ian Mason on January 19, 2015 at 1:06am

It goes like this, Ruth. I write a bit then the other writes a bit, then it's my turn to continue. We take turns.

Patricia, statistics can be fun. I read once that London would be under 3 feet of horse dung by 1990 if the trends of 1890 continued.
