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 says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

@The Flying Atheist, there is a difference between those who don't finish high school and continue to pursue interests beyond the mundane daily life. I find them open to questioning, exploring for new information, and willing to look at old ways of thinking and acting and experimenting with non-traditional ideas. As I think back to my childhood, the people I admired and wanted to spend time with were the questioners, seekers. 
Did you feel accepted and supported by your grandfather? He must have meant a lot to you, to remember him with such loving and respectful terms.

My grandfather never finished high school, which was pretty common for someone born in 1910, but he was always reading and learning about some topic in a book from the library.  He was a very fun, kind, and down to earth person.  I admired him for his personality and for his scholarly eagerness to learn and to pass on what he knew.

I collect internetpictures from all over the world, and there are some 3000 books here: history, evolution, atheism, philosophy, DIYbooks and a lot of whodunnits and literature. I started to read lots of different things to patch up my poor education - still not finished ;-)
