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 Loren Miller on Tuesday. 16 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

God's Annual Performance Review (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Mar 19. 6 Replies

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

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

Started by Daniel W. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 2. 28 Replies

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

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

I'll try to post again over here:

Daniel, next years sweet corn, or whatever you plant in the garden with all that chicken much will just love you and reward you with bushel crops. That will also be an excellent place to plant the three sisters. 

"The Three Sisters are the three main agricultural crops of various Native American groups in North America: winter squash, maize (corn), and climbing beans (typically tepary beans or common beans)."

It worked, now to the rest of my A/N friends, Good afternoon. I will take advantage of the successful last tries and say how glad I am to have you to participate with trying to get oil companies to explore and develop alternative energy sources. 

I successfully sent an invitation to A/N members from A to L to join the group, Renewable Energy Sources

I am unable to send invitations to A/N members because I have been unsuccessful in figuring out how to send to A/N friends. I will keep trying. 

My old brain just can't keep up with this new-fangled technology and I send hugs to all those who are smart and able. How I envy you your brightness!

Attempt #2
Hi, Spud, it seems our little group has a reason to grow now that some fossil fuel corporations look to doing research on alternative energy sources. There exist great opportunities for those who create, invent, develop alternative energy. 

We live in an incredibly exciting time of human development. I jus wish I could remember how to invite A/N members to this site. I tried and tried, finally got through A - L and then sent that request off. I tried to duplicate sending the rest and I am still struggling with how to invite A/N members. 

I'm too old for this kind of brain twisting. 

How are you doing!

Ian, you mentioned practicing scales on your bass guitar; couldn't resist this:

Kathy, have you tried Lore's recommendation? Go to Loren's page

Ning, Error 500s, and Whether to Migrate

page 2 about 1 hour ago. I also made a check list to follow for his instructions. 

Let me know if you can't find it.

Here we go again. One comment will post the next one won't.
Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 1, 2016 at 3:21pm

Please pardon this little rant.

Last night, October 31 (Halloween), I walked over to the Walgreens pharmacy to pick-up a prescription. They already had Xmas items on display next to the Halloween items.

Today I received an email from Amazon.com announcing their "Countdown to Black Friday."

Ugh! I'd like to fast forward to Thanksgiving, enjoy that day, and then fast forward again to the day after the Super Bowl.

Comment by Ian Mason on November 1, 2016 at 1:16pm

Ruth,that's the sort of day I would call productive. I'm so untidy by nature that any kind of sorting out is a victory.

I spent the morning at the gym and the middle of the day at a new meeting place for those who don't get out much such as psych patients, handicapped, the severely shy (me) and anyone else who wants to join in. Quite nice. The rest of the day's gone on household chores and practicing scales on my bass guitar.

Comment by Daniel W on November 1, 2016 at 11:04am

Randy, your comment here did show up.

I don't see your comment on Loren's discussion.  Mine also took a while to appear, but not this long.

Comment by Randall Smith on November 1, 2016 at 10:19am

Rats. I added a comment to Loren's discussion above, but it didn't submit. Will this, I wonder?
