Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: on Thursday

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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

TheraminTrees doesn't release videos very often these days,  but when he does, they are positive GEMS.  Most recent of his works is the following, wherein he dismantles some of the common rebuttals atheist get from believers when we assert our…Continue

You too Deidre.

Well, we had some puns in the FOOD discussion, so we need a few here.  IMO.

Carl, I love the "Stable Myth" cartoon....I just forwarded it to a few atheist friends....and am thinking about sending it to a Catholic...

I (who have had WAYYYYYY too many surgeries) have often wondered about the effect of all the bacteria crawling around in a pre-Pasteur stable on a woman who has just given birth, not to mention on the infant.

Randall, that's not a "spoiler;" I remember the trial.  The wife was so brainwashed from birth that she believed that putting up with that kind of treatment meant she was a "good xian."  After she left her husband, she became a JW....worse and worse.

Her childhood brainwashing doesn't alter the fact that her paintings are garbage...like Kinkade's.....  Little old ladies (especially ones who were hippies in the '60s) love that kind of crap.  Their husbands LOVVVVVE the poker-playing dogs.    Gaaaaahhhhhh!

OK Sk8eycat, you've made me puke. Are you happy?? Those things are even worse than dogs playing poker!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 23, 2014 at 10:13am

Happy Holidays to you also, Deidre.  I hope it's enjoyable for you.

Chris, this is just for you.  The Xmas story without all the sugar-coating.

2 bibles?! I hope they go down well, and don't forget the doggybags when you walk him...
