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 yesterday. 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

Questions......

   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

Very nice.  I'm saving those sunsets.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 4, 2016 at 1:45pm

We live in and have seen so many spectacular scenes of our good Earth, it is pure joy to celebrate it and participate with it. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 4, 2016 at 1:14pm

Chris, a stunning sight; to think you have that scene every day of the windmill. It is beautiful alone and with the sunrises and sunsets, a welcome image. 

Comment by Randall Smith on November 4, 2016 at 7:55am

Cubs win! Cubs win! And I missed it. Wouldn't you know, after 73 years of agony and heartbreak, I'd miss the "grand finale"? Why, you ask? It just so happened, that my daughter from Honduras was flying in to Indianapolis that night-- 11:45, to be exact. I was away from the TV for two and a half hours. And no Indy station had the game on the radio. Oh well, disappointments are part of life. "Wait'll next year"!

Comment by Loren Miller on November 4, 2016 at 7:47am

Wow, Chris!  That shot is positively iconic!

Comment by Randall Smith on November 4, 2016 at 7:44am

Oh, Chris, what a glorious photo!!  It's prize worthy.

I'm one of those great appreciators of sunrises/sets. I try not to miss them because when I'm dead, I will.

It's beautiful, Loren!

One more sunset, you've seen more of that mill, but it's in the middle of my view..

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 4, 2016 at 1:06am

The early morning photos look peaceful and comforting. I like the sounds when birds wake up and celebrate another day. Hope all of you are healthy, happy, peaceful and surrounded by loved ones. 

Comment by Daniel W on November 3, 2016 at 7:23pm

All quite beautiful. 

We noticed rivers of fog down in the valley while we were walking the dogs this morning.  Unfortunately, no pics.  That too, was lovely. 

What a nice day.

Long as we're posting pretty sunsets:
