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

I just flew with a pilot at my company who showed pictures to me that he took from the cockpit when he was flying into LAX on the same day of the shuttle landing.  They were lucky enough on their approach to be landing at the same time on parallel runways.  And what a treat for a plane full of passengers as well.  Wish I could have seen that.

Hi!  I'm up to my eyes in Pet Press work today and tomorrow, but I HAD to show you-all this photo.  (Please click the link to read the article and following comments.  SOME people actually know something about photography and telephoto lenses!  Amazing!)

Hi, Stlcharliebrown.  Welcome to the site.  I'm not sure about t/a.  Can you provide the context in which it was used?

Comment by Stlcharliebrown on September 26, 2012 at 2:01pm
I'm new here and I have a question. Someone was talking in a post and used the abbreviation a/n for athiest nexus, they also used the abbreviation t/a. What does it mean it was in reference to another site.

Good morning Tony Carroll, John Denver is always a goo way to start out a rainy day. John Denver was the first concert I ever went to at age 8. It was too loud and we had to leave. LOL

Steph, love the yearbook pic of the cat.  It looks like what my daughter says is the 'sorority-pose', lol.  Glad you and Joan liked the penguin-cat.  Maybe I should have posted it in your birders group! lol.

Joan, your yard is wonderful and so are you.  My Awesome Grandma was like that.  Always doing outdoorsy-things, and things for the neighborhood and the neighborhood children.  Your haven is a real heaven!~ Melinda
