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

Felaine, have you kept a diary? I think I asked you that before. Maybe you could recall enough of your experiences to write a book.

Patricia, I really enjoy watching all the trains, the scenery and the engineering of the whole system. The Master Engineer poking his head out draws one back to reality of the size of the trains.

Procter & Gamble is making a big to-do over their support of the Pink Ribbon/Breast Cancer cause.  HOWEVER at least 90% of their products contain known carcinogens.

If you want to support the cause, find some way of doing it without buying ANY P&G products.  Ever. 

(I have hated that company since I was a child listening to their stupid commercials on the radio...."Oh, I don't use [bleep] any more.  I use New, Improved [bleep]!"  As IF women are too stupid to know it's still the same old crap, no matter what they call it.)

I wasn't too thrilled when we had to do early morning shortened shows for the company brass when we played Cincinnati, either.  Rudest audiences I've ever skated for. .8 > (

Ian, happy and safe travels and great times with your family. Build up some good memories to hold you over until your next visit.

Have a good trip and visit, Ian!

Have a great trip, Ian.  Enjoy the time with your family. 

Comment by Ian Mason on November 25, 2014 at 1:18pm

Not going to Hell but am going to England in the morning to see some of the family. This will be the last visit for a while. Be good and be safe for the next few days.

Well, it looks like I have no choice.  I'm going to have to give up my gangster rapper behavior in order to get to heaven.

"tattoo getters" is funny, as is "girly men", and a few others. :)

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on November 25, 2014 at 11:33am

If the sign bearer's going to be in heaven, I'll take hell any day. (Makes me want to get a tatoo.)
