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.

So I've been thinking about this some lately, and I wanted to see what your thoughts were:I read a novel last fall that was making the rounds of Atheist blogs and what not called "Christian Nation", which is part alternative history and part…Continue

Science, Atheism & the Joyful Life -- by Sean Faircloth, Richard Dawkins Foundation

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 9. 6 Replies

Some speeches by atheists are factual and practical, dealing with the nuts and bolts of reality.  Some are diatribes against the superstitions we seek to overcome, pointing out the man behind the curtain and the fallacies and snake oil he tries to…Continue

Bedtime Bible Stories (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 8. 0 Replies

Uh, oh!  America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, is at it again, THIS time with bedtime stories!  Somehow with her retelling of some of the classics, I'm dubious that her versions would go over with the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson,…Continue

Hey, Steve

I clicked the link in the email about your comment with Firefox as my browser and no comment capability was available.  So I changed the default to Safari and the website seems normal.  I suggest it is the website.

Sy8eycat- I also have her as my hero too - along with Dan Barker! Anne Nicol Gaylor is a wonderful lady that has done much for Atheists!

Her mother, Anne Nicol Gaylor, is one of my heroes (I have a lot of heroes. If you live long enough, you tend to collect them.)...among other things, she still runs one of the first abortion assistance charities in the country, AND she's the one who came up with my all-time favorite atheist slogan:

"Nothing Fails Like Prayer." 

(Cha-cha-cha!)

I am proud to be an FFRF member!
Way to go Annie Laurie Gaylor! She's my hero!

Ergh!  I think Penn State's Athletic Dept. panicked, and came up with that grovelling pre-game prayer as an attempt at damge control. Did you see the letter Annie Laurie Gaylor wrote to Dr. Erickson, the "Interim President"? Ripped him up one side and down the other.  Makes me proud to be an FFRFer.

NITTANY HYPOCRITES

Comment by Kathy Lewis on November 15, 2011 at 6:38am

I have a Kindle ereader and just love the technology. I can choose to read print, but I can also download audiobooks from Audible.com. That's a great site for ordering audiobooks. They download to your computer and from there you can put them on your "devices" such as e readers or MP3 players. The service is incredible. I can't read much print, so the portable audiobooks are a (god?)send.  If you join the site, you get one credit per month for $ 8 -15, which is half the price of most best sellers.

Morning everyone! Quick question-Anyone know anything about e-readers? I wanted to know if I can copy all the books I have on my computer onto an e-reader. I have a ton of books in PDF or TXT files and didn't know if these e-readers use these files extensions. Thanks!
