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.

A ridiculous claim should be recognized as such as a matter of course, shouldn't it?  Shouldn't It?!?  What happens if that claim is so imbued and integrated into society over hundreds if not thousands of years that it has been taken as TRUTH…Continue

coming out (TheraminTrees)

Love the "copper slalom" Ruth. I hope I can remember to try it when I get that old.

I love it, Mindy!  More cats and less stupid people.

LOL, Mindy!  Boehner, and the rest of his TP cronies could even be rehired as Congressional Litter Box Police.  That's all they're fit for.

Good idea, Mindy! When do you start?

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on July 13, 2014 at 10:33am

That's funny, booklover, thanks.

I must be getting old, because I find this hilarious.

Smooth music, Loren. Like it!

Brain isn't always well attached, Joan, but I love to be here!

Actually, the reason I like Atheist Nexus so much is that there are so many people with great style and keen brains.
