Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 865
Latest Activity: on Thursday

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

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Donatien Alphonse François on Tuesday. 6 Replies

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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Annie Willis Apr 20. 7 Replies

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

Survived. Food was great, and only one prayer to suffer through. Though my son kept making faces at me during it, to try to get me to laugh. I'm an easy one to get to make laugh. But I made it.

Hope you feel better soon Ian.

Did everyone survive Xmas with the relatives?

Comment by Ian Mason on December 25, 2012 at 1:46pm

This part of everyone if fine apart from some bothersome virus in the throat - but that just means I have to drink more tea :-)

How are you? Are you enjoying the holidays?

Comment by Steph S. on December 25, 2012 at 11:06am

Tony - that Aztec picture is really cool.

Checking out your post Loren - thanks for linking it.

Love the cats Booklover.

Ian I love the coffee pic and xmas Ninja - cool.

Thanks for the pigs picture Chris.

So how is everyone today?

I did comment, Loren (as I had seventeen years in the Navy I am quite familiar with that of which you wrote).

And it is only getting worse. I fear for my country; I see a military overthrow as a possibility, in the name of "domestic enemies," (those enemies being supporters of the Secular State).

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 25, 2012 at 8:45am

Chris, I love the pigs.  Believe it or not, my father has a pig collection!  Years ago he decided to share them with the family, so I have two of them.  lol

Comment by Loren Miller on December 25, 2012 at 8:13am

Peeps, I don't ordinarily go overboard promoting my own stuff on here, but in this case, I can't hold myself back.  I am PISSED about the matter of proselytism in the military and I urge you do do something about it!

Please check out my post about this ... then WRITE!

Comment by Ian Mason on December 25, 2012 at 3:43am

That's a good one, Chris

Good morning all

Comment by Plinius on December 25, 2012 at 2:46am
