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.

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

https://www.facebook.com/sylviastrange here you go Melinda!!! Sorry about that. I couldn't find you. 

Comment by booklover on July 30, 2012 at 4:51pm

Hey Sylvia, no I mean I didn't know how to edit on here when it doesn't have a button that says edit! LOL. 

As for your posting on FB, I TOTALLY AGREE!!!!  We are not 'allowed' to post our views, yet they can post all the stupid shit they want about praying (begging) their god for favors, etc.?  I am DONE with not saying what I want.  And yes, I'd love to be FB friends.  We can "like" what each other says about Atheism! lol.  I think I might have mine set that no one can ask me to be their friend anymore, so how do I ask you to be mine on FB?  Sorry, not very computer-literate~!

Comment by Sylvia on July 30, 2012 at 4:38pm

Melinda do you mean the comments from FB? I can help you! 

Comment by Sylvia on July 30, 2012 at 4:35pm

This is how it goes. I get up in the morning and sign into FB. Normally there are the ones who post God pictures and then there are the ones who thank God everyday for such a wonderful life. I see this nonsense all day long. I have a few really religious people in my life. I think they are hypocrites because they think it is ok to post their nonsense but it's not ok for me to post what I want because it could offend someone, screw that!  My husband is always telling me I don't' have to put it in their face, F that, they put their shit in my face everyday. I'm sick of it! I refuse to back down! Melinda would you like to be FB friends? El Solo Lobo, I never feels sorry for these people, if I'm smart enough to get it, they are too, they choose to be this way. 

Comment by El Solo Lobo on July 30, 2012 at 4:23pm

Here's a question: Do you ever feel genuinely sorry for a strong religious "believer" who just doesn't seem capable of 'getting it'?
