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.

A ridiculous claim should be recognized as such as a matter of course, shouldn't it?  Shouldn't It?!?  What happens if that claim is so imbued and integrated into society over hundreds if not thousands of years that it has been taken as TRUTH…Continue

coming out (TheraminTrees)

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

Hey Melinda, just heard the Frito Lay company is having to make an emergency airdrop of Cheetos in the Denver area. :) lol!

Pass the twinkies, dude.

Spud, here's a horror story 4 U.  A friend in Tacoma, who IS a xian (but she tolerates me), had cataract surgery a few years ago, and just before they rolled her into the OR, the ophthalmologist came in the room and asked if he could pray with her before the operation.  SHE thought it was nice of him.  I told her I would have been off that gurney and out the door so fast.....  The last thing I want is a surgeon in any specialty who believes she/he needs supernatural help to do his/her job.

The young genius who fixed my spine in '09 is a secular Jew....we laughed at the "scarecrows" on the walls in the Cat-Lick horsepistol where he did the repair work.  It is kinda weird that they have state-of-the-art surgical equipment, but they still need mythical ornaments on the walls.  (It's the only hospital in town, and it's owned by an order of nuns....)

Thanks Joan.  Sounds like a good idea.  It's time for me to shut the computer off, so I'll talk to you about it another day.  Good nite all.

Spud, need a partner in getting off the couch? ... for me it is getting off my office chair. Maybe we can team up and set little, reachable goals for activity. I hate exercise, don't like walking much, and winter comes forcing me out of my garden. What are you doing and do find it pleasant? Or is it just grunt work? Anyway, let me know if you want a partner.

Feeling OK now, thanks Joan.  Just need to get out and get more exercise.  My body is telling me that it doesn't like being a couch-spud.

Hey you kids!  Funny!

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 8, 2012 at 6:00pm

Yes, I'm going to try to find an atheist doctor while I'm reading between the lines of my new doctor to see where he stands for sure.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 8, 2012 at 5:59pm

Spud, I do hope you are well; I'm glad you found a doctor who said "Well, you don't have to worry about that here."  Yay!"

Just imagine a world without superstition and demons and devils made up in human minds intended to scare and put fear into you. 

The good news is, our bodies give us signals when they need attention, and with preventive medicine, we are able to find things early and start treatment.

Atheist doctors - those are the ones to get.
