Latest Activity: yesterday

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 on Sunday. 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

   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

Lots of xmas stuff in the shops, but first Sinterklaas. UN-spokesperson Verene Shepherd said that the Netherlands are heading back to slavery because Sinterklaas has got coloured servants: called Black Peter, Moorish, in a Swiss Guard outfit. Not even the coloured people in this country understand that quote about slavery.

Spud, you asked me on Monday about the prices of Apple compared to a PC. At the time I bought my Mac, I couldn't afford a new anything and when this opportunity came up, I was delighted. I don't know about the present price differences.

Really, Patricia?  It shows up for me.  I'll repost.  Thanks.

Today is the day before Halloween.  I took the following picture earlier today of the mobile phone store at the corner of my street.  This display has already been there for several days now.  For some people, Baby Jesus can't come soon enough.

When my former husband was in dental school, I was his practice patient. He had to learn how to inject in front of the needle and I had a lot of injections in those days (1956-1959). He became very good at it, and his patients adored him. When he was in private practice his patients told me he was the most painless dentist they had experienced.
I wonder what he could have done with computer technology.

Ruth, my comment to you didn't get posted, so I'll try again.

I'm glad things went better than expected.  

I've also never heard of computer controlled pain medication delivery.  It made me think of a wonderful future, where computers read out brain signals so well that they can know when to give pain relieving drugs and when not to.

Spud, I have several options prescribed for me; however they dull my brain to the point I can't remember what I need. I use Aleve as needed and that helps, even if I can take more of that if I want. I figure I have so many chemicals in my system, I cut back on what I can. I also have a lovely time watching documentaries and that keeps my mind off pain and itching.
A dull brain bothers me more than physical pain.

Grinning Cat, finding the musical "periodic table of elements" is kind of fun to listen to, and even learning some of the list. Oh joy! I remember in high school chemistry trying to learn the elements table and what a chore that was. This should help. I know, there is no reason to learn this stuff, but it is kind of fun. Name the order of crystallization of minerals out of magma.
"Old pirates amble by quickly full meter."

olivine, pyroxene, amphiboles, biotite, quartz, feldspar, and mica.

My gosh, it has been 59 years since I learned this and still remember at 77. I guess I still have long-term memory.
