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

The first two...at the Lunch Counter (Iforgot to say that there are 7; 4 girls and 3 boys)

LOL, love the thinking poster!

The sequence starting with Tony's String Theory Flying Spaghetti Monster to The Flying Atheist's Bichon Frise cupcakes to Ska8eycat's Jasmine reminds me of one of the most popular threads in the extinct Atheist and Agnostics Myspace group. It was image association, like "this picture reminds me of." Do you think we should have an image association discussion?

This would be my association (triggered by the sequence)

I promised I'd post a photo of Jasmine and her babies as soon as her human sent me some...and she (the human) FORGOT...till I prodded her about it today.  The puppes were born last Friday night-Saturday AM.  The photo was taken yesterday.  They grow FAST!

Jasmine and Family

Yum yum. They look good enough to eat. Or pet. Whatever. Just give me a tall cold glass of milk, and I'm in.

The Flying Atheist~ Who DOESN'T like cupcakes?! How cute!!!!  I once had a friend ask someone if they wanted a doughnut and they said they weren't hungry.  She looked at them stunned.  She said "But it's a DONUT!" lol
