Hang With Friends

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

That'll be one for the trash along with the not quite sealed candies.

Every time I stay in a hotel room and find a Gideon bible in the drawer, I have to resist the impulse to tear out the pages and throw the shreds in the trash. I don't, mostly because it would take too much time!! LOL! I am not militant, but I truly believe that religion belongs in the church and in the home, and not in public. I remember the old Christian Science Reading Rooms -- if people WANTED to go in there, they could, but the CSers were NOT out pounding the pavement. There are ways to be tolerant and civilized about religion, but passing out Bible verses to other people's children is not one of them.

So, energy, like the potential within a physical system to do work?  Or woobityjoobity energy?
Comment by Jas Brimstone on October 10, 2011 at 10:19pm
Of course they'll give out the same amount of energy... none. (cue smartass physics lecture on the minute amounts of energy all atomic particles give off in 3...2...)

Some AN subgroups ought to have an age requirement---21 and older. Like it could be rated NC-21..."Not-for-Children under 21". Or maybe...
"You must be an atheist with at least 5 years of private and public atheism in order to comment on questions at a 'profoundness level of 7 and up'..." (on a scale of 0-10)
Or maybe we coud just all retreat to neutral corners and go back to the old ways of not being candid about our personal ontological beliefs.
