Hang With Friends

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.

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Some William Blake to Ponder

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

God's Not Dead - The Christian Persecution Complex (The Thinking Atheist)

Doubtless most if not all of you have heard about that sorry piece of cinema known as God's Not Dead, and perhaps its sequel, cleverly entitled: God's Not Dead 2 (wow, how original!).  Personally, I have wasted neither time nor money on either,…Continue

The Value of Atheist Nexus ... and of Keeping Contact

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 17. 13 Replies

I don't know about you, but the last 24+ hours were VERY uncomfortable for me.  Why?  Because something I value a LOT, being Atheist Nexus and the people I care about on A|N were temporarily unavailable to me.  No, we're not Facebook; I don't think…Continue

Hello and welcome, Fredy.

Have a great trip, Randall. You'll enjoy it when you get there.

I've been making this year's chutney today. It's really a way of using up the tomatoes that haven't ripened. It takes a couple of months to mature so I don't know what it will taste like yet but I'm optimistic. Something spicy and tangy to keep out the winter cold when January and February come.

Greets, Fredy, and welcome.  Please have a great time here!

Comment by Randall Smith on October 12, 2015 at 7:20am

In case I haven't mentioned it here, I'll be gone a week. Off to Sac. CA to visit a daughter and son. I'm taking the train the long route, 3 days up and through Montana, etc., and south through Oregon. Worse part, I'm too cheap to buy a sleeper car. Oh boy.

Hi Fredy, welcome here!

Hi, Fredy.  A big welcome to you.  Glad you found Atheist Nexus.

Hello everyone I'm new around here

Comment by Ian Mason on October 5, 2015 at 7:40am

That's bad, Chris. One of the less tangible problems but a serious one. As you say, 'how to prove it.'

Comment by Randall Smith on October 5, 2015 at 6:40am

Yes, welcome, Jonathon. Surprised you still have your mother's ashes. 

Nice photo, Ruth--except for that stupid "star" on your left cheek!

Blackberries this time of year, Ian? Wow!

Carl, I've had to turn on my furnace. Cutting more wood today so I won't have to use propane this winter.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 5, 2015 at 2:16am

Carl, thanks for posting "Pennies from heaven". 

Craig and Laura were born Feb. 21, 1964. It seems like yesterday. Cary was five months, 13 days old when they were born.

That was a very busy year for me. 

Comment by Plinius on October 5, 2015 at 1:27am

I'm afraid so, Ian. Workplace bullying and how to prove it...

The normal reaction of a company seems to be:"We're not the problem, you are!"
