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 Feb 19. 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

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

I couldn't resist:

sk8eycat so sorry to hear about your beloved Harry Jerry. I hope the medication helps. You are in our thoughts.

Yes, hugs to both of you.

Comment by Grinning Cat on April 12, 2013 at 8:05pm

Felaine, sorry to hear about Hairy Jerry! Please accept some hugs for both of you. He certainly couldn't ask for a better human to help him through a difficult end of life.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on April 12, 2013 at 7:12pm

Hi, Elaine.


I also wanted to express my sadness about Hairy Jerry's health news.  He is very lucky to have such a loving house companion such as you.  He'll be under great care. 

It's dinner time here in Chicago, and I have to admit that chopped white meat chicken sounds good to me as well.  --Carl

Thank you all.  I had a fairly accurate idea about that lump on Jerry's neck was before I took him to the vet, and I knew it wasn't good.  I've taken cae of so many cats and dogs over the past 40 years that I can tell whether a lump is a fattty tumor, an abcess, or something malignant just by feeling it, and seeing the animal's reaction.

Right now Jerry is in no pain, wants chopped  chicken white meat ALL the time, and still wants to bonk heads with me, so.....

I'm waiting for the pharmacy to deliver his prednisone, and we'll see how he reacts to that.

It's a risk I take gladly, especially with Hitch for an example.

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 12, 2013 at 4:53pm

Felaine, sorry about Hairy Jerry.

My computer is running dreadfully slowly, so I leave you with a little sight and sound candy.

Felaine, I am very sorry to learn Hairy Jerry has a thyroid cancer. Hopefully, you will have good books to read while you are gone; not very satisfying to watch distractions on TV. I will be thinking of you.
