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.

Evangelicals Unmasked (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 26. 4 Replies

After roughly two months of "shelter-in-place," it would seem that evangelical Christians are champing at the bit to get back to their money-making-machines churches, because empty pews mean empty collection plates, which means no moolah in pastors'…Continue

Ian, "All progress depends on the unreasonable man" and woman!

Isn't it just grand to be alive at this time in human history!!! We can take action to shape our world to fit our image of the world living with justice and peace.

Made me laugh.

BTW, there's a picture of our new cat, Stella, in Atheist Ailurophiles.

Yes, kitty approvals are important.

Ruth, my son, Craig, has two Ragdoll cats; they are beautiful! They both slept with me the winter I lived with Craig's family. They inspected my suitcases, clothes, shoes, and me before they decided I was worthy of their attention. They were excellent companions for me!

Great voices, great message...

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 20, 2020 at 1:22pm

I often mention information about the geology of my home state and the fact that I had volcanic and ice age flood evidence at my home there and Spokane is an important part of the Ice Age Floods story.

This video made by a geologist gives important information about both. He made the video this morning, June 20, Summer Solstice, the first day of summer.

Thanks, Ian. We are trying to adopt a retired 3 1/2 year old Ragdoll breeder named Stella. I'll send pics of whatever cat we end up getting.

Agreed, Joan. Real social change never comes easily. Adopting new technology, yes. Treating people  fairly, nope.
