Hang With Friends

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.

Oh, NO!  The gun debate has gotten so heated that it has Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, TALKING TO HERSELF!  Apparently, one of her has had a stroke or a serious breakdown in cognitive skills, as she does little more than parrot the NRA's…Continue

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

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

That's the extent I'm going to punish myself by reading about trump for quite a while.

Plinius, I do enjoy hearing things like you mentioned.  I googled him as a spoiled child and found a Daily Mail article that said in a biography of him, he admits that he is still pretty much the same as he was as a child.

It says even as a child Trump was a horror: Throwing stones at a toddler in a playpen. Boasting he gave his teacher a black eye. Think the president's a bully now? You should’ve seen him as a boy!

It sounds like a lot of his bullying can be blamed on his father, who was a tight-fisted authoritarian patriarch, and dour disciplinarian who was determined to toughen up his sons so they could follow him into a life as a ruthless, cost-cutting businessman.

But I enjoyed very much what was in the news - that the White House staff considered t. as a spoiled child that won't listen or read.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 7, 2018 at 7:43am

I'm with you Randy.  I can't stand to watch or read about the incredible ass in the White House.  Can't even stand to look at a picture of him.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 7, 2018 at 7:25am

Well, if I ever want to check out other atheist sites, I'll know who to look for. For now, I'm sticking to A/N.

Thanks Bertold, but I won't be reading Fire and Fury. I can't stand the man, refusing to watch or read about him. I wish to maintain my sanity.

I'm on Atheist Zone as Black Cat, and on Facebook as Selena Challoner....

I am on Atheist Zone as JadeBlackOlive, but I find the site not so user friendly. Daniel has also been there for quite some time, but didn't always say much.

Atheist Universe, where I am Mrs.B, is another that he joined for awhile but didn't stay. Its quiet there.
