Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 884
Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Plinius, I couldn't watch that video because I won't sign on to facebook again.  Is this the video?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys-KP8oPdvg

 Carl,

 I dunno why but I am always uncomfortable in a "all the same" setting. Like if I walked into a room of just white people, I get uncomfortable. Even though I am white socializing with only white people is like being locked up in a cage. I haven't figured out why this is so.

 So yea, the A.N. community members are a rare breed.

Here's something for you, Plinius...

Comment by Plinius on November 18, 2017 at 1:37pm

And I love green, Carl!

I enjoy hearing from others not in my little place on the planet. I feel we have plenty of interesting things to learn from each other.

Thomas, this is my only social site as well.  I've never had a Facebook or MySpace account or any other like that.  I feel like we are a rare breed.

Chris (NL) I love that video.  Very funny.  I didn't realize you get so much precipitation.  The upside is that you have lots of greenery, which is definitely nice! 

Comment by Plinius on November 18, 2017 at 1:32pm

Thomas, I was only joking - lately I've seen a lot of people on internet who think that the world ends at the borders of the USA - they always make me laugh. 

But you're right, accepting differences and enjoying the colourful company is good for us all.

  Pilnius,

 Atheist Nexus is the first (..and still is) online community I've signed up for. I have never been a member of any internet community before A.N.. So  what urged me to finally let go and sign up for A.N. because of the need to belong to a community. So this is still all new and I dunno if there is or not an online decorum to follow.

"Foreign? Are we THAT different? ;-)"

 That question made me think a bit here....and I think we are that different. One of the religious churches goal is to make everybody the same...To born the same, to think the same,..to act the same, and to die the same. Religion was designed to brainwash people and to set in a conformist personality. So far I have not seen A.N. doing that..here we only affirm that there is no God. Everything else we are different... and I think that is amazing. We accept our differences and actually welcome different kinds of people.

Accepting our differences makes us a stronger individual.

You make me LOL, Joan! You can't mean that you don't like rain?
