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

I wish your husband well, Patricia. Nice to have family available upon arrival.

A collection of "English as she is well spocken" (sp?) signs had one, "We serve tea in a bag like mother."

For all of you with grandchildren:

That's my kind of liberal.
Comment by Loren Miller on September 8, 2014 at 11:34am

Glad to help, Joan!  Please go to the JIBO website and have a look for yourself.  They apparently aren't out YET, but I have to believe they have the winter holidays in their sights.

I'm intrigued as well, but don't really have the money to spend right at this moment.

Comment by Grinning Cat on September 8, 2014 at 11:00am

Loren, that photo shows a use of "liberal" that's new to me.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 8, 2014 at 10:16am

Jibo actually exists? It acts like intelligence lives within a machine. I can see all kinds of uses that would facilitate my #1concern, family violence. If episodes could be recorded, perhaps both the abuser and abused would see the idiocy of dominator and victim; perhaps others would believe how bad a situation is; perhaps a professional could unwind the triggers and demonstrate ways to make healthy changes. 

Now, as to fun! Oh boy! I could get all the photos I want and from the events I want to record. l could show you that flock of goldfinch without startling them away by my movement. 

Where did you find this Lore? Wherever, I want to subscribe.

Loren, there's a humanoid robot built by Honda, called ASIMO...for Asimov?  Cute, but I'd like one that can be pre-programmmed to clean litter boxes, dust, vacuum, test and correct the pool water, and do all the other household jobs that I hate.

This is my kind of thinking, don't mess around with nice words, it just encourages them to keep trying. I'm sharing 

And I was able to open both photos.
