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.

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

Joseph, good luck.

How come facebook doesn't have two separate columns, one for Theists and one for Non-Theist, then a person can define their beliefs or non-beliefs?  When I entered Atheist, I thought it was a simple thing no biggie.  On my time line, it said that I had changed my religious affiliation (WTF)!!!  What did they assume that I was?!!   

Comment by Joseph Corder on January 26, 2014 at 8:08pm

Hey guys,  facebook is pathetic!  Most of the people I've been hanging around with throw up a whole bunch of jesus crap!  I've known these people at various times, throughout my life.  No one has asked me what I believe, even though I post music of an adult theme.  No one has mentioned about how raunchy the songs are or what effect it might have on their children!  I have hatched a plan!  I want to see how many of the posers are really paying attention!  I will continue to post the music.  I will then post the music with a warning of adult content to see what happens!  Then for shits and giggles I will introduce anti-religious songs into the mix and see what happens!  I want to know how many of these people pay attention!!  It will be interesting to find out!  I have started posting explicit music and I have had NO complaints!  I know people are listening because I am getting a good number of thumbs up!  I don't know where I am going with this, but so far , it's a blast!  I believe the ones that have already given the thumbs up have failed!  How can you give a thumbs up to raunchy music and then turn around and say that raunchy music is a tool of the devil?!!!!  I am having more fun than a barrel of monkeys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Ha.  Yesterday, my sister posted a thank you to her boss for paying for a weekend get away trip (sort of..).  My sister said, "Praise god for the trip that my boss has completely paid for"!!!  Isn't that the dumbest shit?

Patricia, you wrote: 
"I'm just damn nosy so keep going to the menus & poking to see what's what."

I don't know if you are "nosy" or not, but whatever you are, you are one smooth lady to me.

Funny Ian.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 26, 2014 at 12:57pm

Eats, shoots and leaves."  That's a good one Felaine.

Ian, feeling not bad thanks.

I think I finally got my TV working right again.  It'll be 2 months before I can afford a projection bulb so I can see movies on my big screen and put the 14 year-old TV in storage again.

I've learnt the lesson. Don't pander to bad punctuation.
