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 Loren Miller yesterday. 16 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

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

Started by Daniel W. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 2. 28 Replies

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 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

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

My "sustainable" farmer son-in-law just received 240 baby chicks (lost three). They are so adorable! He and his 5 yr old son spend a lot of time with them attempting to bond. Seems plausible (see dog and chicks below).

From Freethought Today:

Studies show exempting churches and religious organizations from taxes in America costs taxpayers between $71 billion and $83.5 billion a year.

Can we say "rip-off," boys & girls?

Comment by sk8eycat on January 17, 2015 at 6:32pm

I didn't make that LOL...my sister found it on Cheezburger.  I rarely go there anymore; it's become too complicated and FlakeBook-y.  Since it's impossible to tell the sex of baby ducks....till they get their adult plumage, I dunno why the Akita is bitching about sandwiches.  I think the dog is a female, anyway.  I've seen those pix before with different captions.

Thanks, Joan. I'm happy about more sunshine every day too.

I like your evolution poster, Ian. Not sure what writing a story in alternating passages means.

Glad some of you are enjoying the weather.

Cute LOL sk8eycat, excepting that the caption suggests that women should be making food for men.

Wut's wit the LOLspeak?

If I could export the rain there's been in Denmark I would be a wealthy man. It looks like the freeze is going to start though.

I've just started a little project with a Danish online friend. Writing stories in alternating sentences/passages. I've never tried it before and it's strange. All my mental images that I have when I write are knocked down by the words I recieve and I have to start again. Relinquishing control does not come easy. I'm sure it's stimulating for the "little gray cells" though.

Felaine, I would share some of our rain ... except, we lack snow pack. Summer may be a scorcher. Who knows, with all the different weather patterns we have seen in Spokane.

Haven't seen that one Ian.  I'm saving it.
