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 10 hours 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

   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

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

Meant to put this up earlier today, but what the heck.  Here's something to wake you up Tuesday morning - a little Don Ross:

Dog prejudice goes WAYYYY back in history, and perhaps prehistory. Especially against black dogs.  The Romans of the Republic era believed that black dogs originated from the "underworld," and  of course black cats were believed to be witchs' "familiars.  Whatever that means.

Some shelters refuse to adopt  out black cats and dogs from late September to early November because some superstitious idiots torture and kill them....especially here in SoCal where there is a large Latino population.

I currently have an orange cat and a fat black cat ....perfect for Halloween, but they are strictly indoor cats.  Funny thiing is that the Black Blimp has totally adopted my red-headed sister.  They make a very striking "couple,".

So, k.h., are you on a jury or did you get released? 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 5, 2014 at 7:27pm

Patricia, perhaps with all the advancements we've made in gene and DNA science, perhaps you'll be able to have a purple cat in the near future.

Thanks sk8ycat, I'm handicapped when it comes to posting links. I did for awhilebbut posting from this tiny phone is a double hindrance.

Interesting article, Sk8eycat.  Thanks for the info.

BTW, Patricia, I wouldn't mind having a black cat that sparkles!  lol

Love the photos, Patricia.  That horse is gorgeous. 

These photos reminded me of a song from my childhood.  I used to listen to my copy of this Captain Kangaroo record over and over.

That is a bit surprising to me, Mindy.  I guess there's no end to the fascinating behavior of humans.  It never once occurred to me that dogs -- dogs! -- could be subjected to prejudices of color.  I am aware that some people have unfounded fears against certain breeds but having an adverse reaction to a dog's color never crossed my mind.

Randy, what a fine specimen of a dog you chose. Beautiful, looks like she is in charge of keeping you and yours safe, can give and take love and attention.
