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.

We've all heard about the Deep Field observations of the Hubble Space Telescope, how, almost on a whim, the device was aimed at what was thought to be an empty, unoccupied section of sky and a long time exposure was taken.  What they discovered was…Continue

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a mid-term election coming up in three days, and it's more than a little important.  With it we can take back at least one if not both houses of Congress from the Republicans and send a message to Donald Trump…Continue

That would be a great thing, that filter. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 15, 2018 at 12:45am

I would like to have a filter that would identify those who are dishonest, unreliable, undependable, assaultive, sexist, or racist. Too many times I have been in a position in which I felt threatened or invaded sexually. I can't see it coming and get caught, by a closed door or by a piece of furnature. 

I had a school friend who could send out signals to men at a bar where we relaxed after class and the next time I saw her she would tell me of the wild time she had with one of the men. 

I don't want that kind of attention and believew I don't send out welcome signals to men who want to fuck. I don't think I invite such treatment and I think the aggression is in the men who initiate the action. 

Now, I am an old woman and have no desire for sexual activity. When will I be too old for men to stop acting like sophomoric college men? 

I feel for the young women who want to have control of their bodies. My college friend wanted the attention, and men read her inviting signals. I wish men and women would be able to have or not have such encounters.

What a shit he turned out to be. I wonder if some sort of screening process is possible in organisations that could prevent people like this gaining top (or any) positions? Some way of weeding them out from membership?

I thought it was directly from the american atheist site.

Comment by Patricia on April 14, 2018 at 7:38pm

I don't know very much about him, but it doesn't say much about what he was supposed to have done or is accused of.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 14, 2018 at 7:38pm

Apparently, Buzzfeed is the source of the dirt on Silverman, the same as they were regarding Krauss.  I for myself am not wild for that coincidence, especially considering that the tone of the writing on the report concerning Krauss was (to my mind, anyway) clearly slanted against the atheist movement.  While I'm not discounting Buzzfeed's reporting, I would STILL like to hear some reportage from a more neutral source.
