Latest Activity: yesterday

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 Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat yesterday. 24 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Proselytizing in the military is a dirty little secret most radical christians would rather didn't get out.  Well, never let it be said that America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, was ever a wallflower where a pit bull was needed!  In the following…Continue

grooming minds (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Aug 10. 20 Replies

There are likely very few among those who frequent Atheist Nexus who would argue against the idea that indoctrinating children with religion is at minimum less than moral or ethical and more likely considered child abuse. Personally, I have aligned…Continue

Since you are (fairly) near Chicago, I recommend taking the Great Northern to Seattle. And back.  Beautiful scenery!

Those tiny things look like fun.

I never flew if the wind was more than about 1 mile per hour.  Even the best of the group that I was part of never flew if the wind was more than about 4 miles per hour.

I would like to fly again.  My gas model has a wingspan of 6.5 feet and I have a glider with the same wingspan.  Also a few small electric ones.

I think a trip in one of them would be a dream, Felaine.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 29, 2014 at 12:44pm

It really did remind me slightly of flying dreams I have had...only there was no motor or wings in my dreams.  Just myself dancing above the ground. 

I think part of the beauty of flying in those airplanes is that their average speed is only about 50 mph...that's a lot slower than most people drive anymore (and one reason I quit driving)... and the open cockpits, of course.

Looks like it would be a nice plane to own Felaine.  Beautiful scenery in that video.

Yes K. H., I've been enjoying My Inner Fish also.

Good helicopter flying Patricia.  I liked the landing especially.

I've never flown a helicopter, but have several model planes.  Didn't stay with it long enough to get good.  Crashed a lot.  My large model is still in pieces, patiently waiting for me to repair it.

I started when I was 65 years old.  Takes longer to learn than when you're young.
