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 1 hour ago. 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

As some of you may or may not know, my daughter is a television news producer, currently working in Nashville, Tennessee.  Her assignment is the morning news, which means she blasts herself up at umpti-ump in the morning to organize and prepare a…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 thought the dogs were adorable, but liked several.  The Godzilla-eats-Baby-Jesus or the naked guys would be great in the front yard.

The Jim Beam/Corona gets my vote.

Carl, cool menorah!  How about some nice Nativity Scenes?

Standing Rock won. At least temporarily. This is the best news I've heard all year.

If I was Jewish and practicing religion, this would be my go-to Hanukkah menorah.

It's shocking how politics are lurching further to the right and how nationalists are gaining ground. In Britain there's been a campaign to bring back the 'golliwog' that used to be a trademark of a brand of jam.

Of course, and it's not the children who protest, but their parents...

Comment by Plinius on December 5, 2016 at 12:46am

Rutte is often described as a psychopath, and as far as I can see it's true. Four months more until the elections, and Wilders is the winner in the polls - another psychopath and that one walks on the Mossad's leash. I'm afraid we're in interesting times...

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 4, 2016 at 11:34pm

Chris, I saw that same video. (I subscribe to the Vox channel on YouTube.)  I have to agree, your Prime Minister seems rather flippant and insensitive about the whole blackface issue.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 4, 2016 at 7:40am

Chris, I had no knowledge of this "blackface" story. Interesting, but disturbing. It needs to be eliminated.
