Hang With Friends

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 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

Here we had 'god zij met ons' on the rim of coins, but the Euros show no gods, only markings for the blind. Much better!

Comment by Randall Smith on March 27, 2016 at 7:15am

I often take a black marker to cross out "In God We Trust" on dollar bills. I'd like to do it to Indiana license plates, too, but I'm afraid I'll get caught.

Quite right, Bertold.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 26, 2016 at 1:10pm

From Atheists Against Pseudoscientific Nonsense:

The reason why scientists and intellectuals don’t respect religion is because religion disrespects human intelligence, that is why we ridicule it. Religion is currently in its death throes and should be allowed to fade away so we as humanity can move on to bigger and better things.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 26, 2016 at 12:48pm

For any fans of Walker, Texas Ranger:

Another lover of dumbocracy and freedumb! You gotta love the implication that besides being godless rabble, atheists are unpatriotic as well.

Comment by Ian Mason on March 25, 2016 at 10:57pm

A good quote. Bertold. Odd that it somes from someone that was such a strict Xtian.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on March 25, 2016 at 8:05pm

Astute quote, Bertold.

I hadn't known about James Martin's death. Thanks. An notification is an "in case of death" list is a great idea.

Comment by Plinius on March 25, 2016 at 9:00am

Perhaps you've got a list of things to be done in case of death - you could put your inlog and a message on the list. I hope my partner remembers my list...
