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.

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Patricia on Tuesday. 1 Reply

I'm going to keep this one short and sweet.  Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has seen what is going on with the current occupant of the Oval Office, and my impression is that she is not at all happy with it.  True to her citizenship,…Continue

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 11. 30 Replies

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

I'm OK, flying Atheist. Just a bit depressed about Climate Destabilization. Today I was thinking a lot about how people in Central America are already having heat-related health ef..., when the forecasts for coming decades are so much worse.

That squirrel does look unusually tired, or hot.

I'd never heard of Atheist Cosmos on Facebook.

The supreme court finally got something right in the ruling against police being allowed access to our cell phones without a warrant.
I wonder how they'll rule when I bring down a drone with a shotgun...

Looks like a good present Plinius.

Joan, of all the thousands of squirrels I've seen in this neighborhood over the years, I can't remember seeing one rest.

Hi, Ruth.  It's always good hearing from you.

Great photo, Chris.  That was such a thoughtful gift.  Did it pass Luna's inspection?

Comment by Plinius on June 25, 2014 at 1:46am

The promised pic of the present I got from my students. With Luna who loves chives.
