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.

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

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Donald R Barbera Sep 27, 2017. 5 Replies

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

10 Things About Patriotism (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Plinius Sep 26, 2017. 2 Replies

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

It seems that Atheist Nexus is working now.

Loren, that was a problem for me too... before it took half a minute to post a comment, but it is fine now.

That rooster is so cool!

For about a week, A|N was REALLY SLOW ... as in taking between 20 and 40 seconds for a comment to post once the button was pressed.  Night now, everything appears to be working fine for me, but if you are having a problem, PLEASE let me know.

My Nexus experience is fine right now.  There was the awfully slow comment posting problem that occured a couple of weeks ago, but that has been resolved.  I have no current issues.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 16, 2017 at 8:19am

My A/N site problem is the comment box. It often is a blank, yellow rectangle--no headings. But it works when I hit "Add Comment". Like right now!

I love that rooster Patricia! 

Good luck with your pronouns, Ian! Most of the time it's easy, especially when you see how much trans people are at peace with themselves. We were at an all-girls tea this week and it was a big success: no one noticed that Luca is trans, but the best was that she talked, thought and made friends like the happiest woman in the world. Really great to see!

Joan, pages load, but I can't post until I refresh, or I get a page that is strictly plain print, no graphics/pictures, snail paced slowness. Many of the same issues over at atheist universe as well.

Thomas, I have no problem with Ning, except it was slow to upload for a while and I notified Richard and Loren. That problem is now solved for me. 

Have you notified Richard or Loren of your problems?

Ian, I don't know anything about Bit-Coin other than the term. I suppose it isn't any riskier than the "market" and the Federal Reserve. I'm not much of a risk taker when it comes to finances. 

Do you have a favorable feeling about Bit-Coins?

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 15, 2017 at 8:04pm

Patricia, you state you have issues with Ning. Can you be more specific? What are the things about Ning you do not like?
