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.

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

Joan, the secret I found was googling till I hit the fb how to delete. Lol. As soon as I managed to log into fb it started pushing a mobile app and wouldn't let me bypass it. Everything had changed over the years and it wasn't user friendly to a strangers

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 13, 2016 at 4:53pm

Joan, please know that I'm thinking about Craig, you, and your family. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 13, 2016 at 2:27pm

Thank you, Daniel and Qiana. Craig gives me great comfort and so do my A/N Support Team.

Joan, Im glad you havd Craig there with you while going through this with Csry.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 13, 2016 at 1:23pm

Craig arrived and he sports a beautiful beard, a beautiful gray with white going up his cheeks into his temples. Oh, it felt good to have him here. 

Cary; in mid September was diagnoses with esophageal cancer that spread to his lymph glands, lungs, and into his brain. He was told he had one month to live. It is now five weeks. His weight is down to 132.

I will be posting his progress in "Cancer", Daniel's very supportive group.

That is "Every time", not "Overtime"  Autocorrect on this new computer is another aggravation.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 13, 2016 at 1:09pm

Congratulations Kathy.  I can understand the aggravation of things like that.  I put off things like that also.

I deleted my fb account about 2 years ago, but don't remember it being aggravating.  What was aggravating was them saving my account information for about a year after that.  Overtime I unknowingly tried to do something that required fb, it would give me my account details and ask me if I wanted to re-up, or something like that.  I always refused.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 13, 2016 at 1:07pm

Is there a secret to deleting fb? If you discover it, Kathy, let me know 

Comment by k.h. ky on October 13, 2016 at 1:02pm
I just spent 45 minutes deleting my fb account. I hadn't even looked at it for two years. Kept meaning to delete it and putting it off because I knew it would be aggravating. And it was.
