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.

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

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

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

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Oh! Yes! Muslims did so many wonderful things in the sciences until religious sank their prospects and futures. 

Love the algebra. No better proof than a mathematical one. 

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 12, 2016 at 12:25am

And there's that quip from a collection of supposed kids' quotes from school papers and exams: "We use algebraical variables when we don't know what we're talking about."

Comment by Grinning Cat on October 12, 2016 at 12:23am

Bertold, algebra was invented by those pagan, satanic Mooslims! :)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 11, 2016 at 8:49pm

The Duggar's and anyone like them.  If they are not suffering from a mental illness, then I would like to know what ails them.  They personify the death cult which they worship.  Scary....AND DANGEROUS!

Great post, Bertold!

That computes true Bertold.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 11, 2016 at 5:50pm

Also, God = Life - Truth

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 11, 2016 at 4:54pm

Let's hear it for algebra.

Interesting picture, Carl. I haven't been to Paris since 1981. Must go there again at some point.

I've never been to a reunion. Britain was never the kind of place for that. It might be different now.

Joan, it was a lovely experience seeing so many young people that have "come out" about their problems and daring to be open.It's a normal, human thing to want the next generation to have a better life. I've learned to cope with many of my problems but the shyness will always be with me - particularly around women. I get very flustered when women try to flirt. That's if I notice it.

Grandchildren are something I'm looking forward to. I'm going to bore everyone in sight with chatter and photos.

"Panik før lukketid" is a standard Danish expression, often used about middle-aged men who chase younger women. That, at least, is not so in my case.
