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.

God's Annual Performance Review (Betty Bowers)

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

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

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!

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

Loren, that's a crazy video (in a good way.)  I just subscribed to his YouTube channel.  He's made some great stuff.

Chris, I absolutely love your cat.  So beautiful.  (The flowers are pretty, too!)

Comment by Loren Miller on April 20, 2013 at 6:53am

So ... have you had your Cyriak today?  No?  My goodness, we MUST do something about that:




There, now, don't you feel better?

I wish you a carefree year, Melinda! And here are some flowers.

NOW I understand how Moses "spoke" with a burning bush, FA. Also explains how he wandered around the desert for 40 years!

   5) The veil on my eyes are lifted, and verily I say unto thee, my brethren, thou shalt stone the heathen, the adulterers, the thief in the night.

   6) For it is pleasing in the sight and smell of the most high.

   7) And the burning thereof shall rise to the heavens as a sweet gift, pleasing unto the lord of hosts. And thou shalt praise his name on high forevermore as 'Dude'!!!

                             Second Book of Cheech (NIV)

                                  Chapter 3, vs 5-7

Joan, I'm so glad you're recovering nicely.  It's great to hear "positive" stories from you and others here on Atheist/Nexus regarding cancer.

**sending you a virtual warm and friendly "heal quickly" hug.** 

No, I did not make the "Shake Your Pants" cat video.  I'm not that talented in the computer/video department.  My great talent is stealing material and passing it on.  Kinda like Milton Berle.  

Tony, this is for you........

Please excuse me, my computer is just being plain stubborn. It is slow, won't post, or posts multiple times. I guess a spring cleaning is in order. Sorry. Now, I can't delete the excesses.

Melinda. Wanted to get you something for your birthday, then realized that you have more un-birthdays than birthdays, just like the rest of us. So, for all the rest of your days, may I present the following.
