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 on Monday. 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

Happy birthday, Randy.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 24, 2016 at 8:17am

Happy Birthday, Randy! I hope you get some nice spring weather to help you celebrate. Apricots, fresh off the tree, makes a splendid treat. Let's hope no late spring frosts interfere with their growth.

Spring here usually arrives right around my birthday (today, as a matter of fact). My apricot trees are in full pink bloom. Maybe, for once, I'll have some.

I couldn't resist this.

The Nederlands are far enough south of DK to make a difference. Usually about 3 weeks.

Comment by Plinius on March 23, 2016 at 2:32pm

Such a difference, Ian? Here the willows are tuening green.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 23, 2016 at 1:57pm

A funny video, Ruth.

I've been running in the woods today. Nothing green yet at these latitudes but the sun was shining nicely.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 23, 2016 at 1:10pm

Ian, thanks for the reminder that Spring has Sprung. I'm anxious to see what all comes up in the forest. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 23, 2016 at 10:57am

Good afternoon, all. You might enjoy this musical video about Steampunk.

It's 70°F here, and our heat's off again. Horray!

Comment by Randall Smith on March 23, 2016 at 7:36am

I still have another willow-- not all is lost. You're right, Carl, about the root system. I won't miss the catalpa with it's caterpillars every other summer.

Looks like Bernie did alright in Tuesday's primary/caucus.
