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.

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 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!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

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

Nice one, Carl :-D

Get well soon, Patricia.

Yes, thanks Steph. How about you?

Hope you get over the flu soon Pat. Hope everyone is doing good here.

Sorry to hear that, Pat.  Hopefully it won't last too long.  And take Mindy's advice......she's a good mom, so you should listen to her. 

Comment by Pat on January 14, 2014 at 7:50pm

Well Melinda, you got the shot, and I got the flu.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 14, 2014 at 2:42pm

Ian, I guess we can say that you'll be less shifty this year.

Augh....I know that's a really bad pun.  :)

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 14, 2014 at 1:08pm

That's a funny dog meme, Ian.  Very cute!

Comment by Ian Mason on January 14, 2014 at 12:34pm

Was told today that I'm now old enough for "senior days" at work. That means 3 extra shifts off per year. How nice!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 14, 2014 at 12:20pm

Thinking about you, Chris.  Take care of yourself as well.  Make sure to give yourself some "me time" so you don't overwhelm yourself. 

Comment by Ian Mason on January 14, 2014 at 12:10pm

That's a lot to take on, Chris. Hope your b-i-l gets recovers. I agree with Mindy - take good care of yourself too. Best wishes and hugs from here :-)

I will be very busy for some time. I have one brother-in-law, who suffers from Asperger's and from anxiety disorder. He's got a hemorrhage in the brain, probably from a fall. Sunday night he got an emergency operation and we're still waiting for him to come out of the coma. While waiting, we went to his apartment to take care of the cat. We hadn't been there for years, brother-in-law hates visitors. But the cat had taken on his anxiety disorder and was scared to death of us. The apartment was a shambles, the sort you see in real life TV-programs - everything was out of order, broken, very dirty and there was a lot of garbage. We attacked the mountains of work at once, but there is enough to do for a month at least. And we still have to wait how brother-in-law fares. He could become his old disastrous self, or get another handicap, or he might die. Whatever happens, my partner and I will have to clean up. I'll read here every day, but most of the time I'm in public transport somewhere between the disaster area, hospital and home.
