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.

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

Going to bed now. Suppose to be 70 when I get up. Perfect weather to walk to work in, which I'm planning to do. Pleasant dreams, one and all.

Here is the video and you can see how angry the audience is and how the vote obviously did NOT pass.

Ok - getting caught up on the other pictures - I love that post about Evolution Tony  - kinda looks like Futurama (the way it's drawn).

Booklover I love the cats and the death ray - very funny.

And Joan - that's telling them! You need to go to that Democratic Convention and tell them all that - just what you said here and also make them know how upset we are with them for reinstating god in the platform. Those people make no sense!

Comment by Steph S. on September 6, 2012 at 8:45pm

Patricia I love the cute cat cartoon with the lady and Tony with your African Iris.

Yeah I'm upset with the Democratic Party too and that sham of a vote.

The nays won and he went ahead and passed it anyway - it's like they planned on passing it regardless.

You all have been posting such fun stuff today, but I need to rant (sorry)

**********************

My in-box has been crammed with begging e-mails from every pol who has my addy.  I just sent the following to ALL of them (not that I expect it to change anything, but it makes me feel better):
 
I'm not donating another dime until:
 
1) "god" (WHICH one?) is removed from the DNC platform.
2) Antonio Villaraigosa makes an apology for that farce of a voice vote Wednesday.
3) everybody makes it clear to the American people that our constitution is a SECULAR document with no mention of any gods whatsoever.
 
It would also be refreshing if just ONE speaker could refrain from "god-blessing" everything in sight.

Now I'll go check out that "death ray" 

Thanks.

What Joan said!!!!!!

I love the ray of death.  What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 6, 2012 at 3:22pm

"I don't under stand evolution!" Why is it any more difficult to believe that some sky spirit created Earth and all that inhabits it in six day and took the seventh off? Or believe dinosaurs and homo sapiens co-existed? Or believe the Earth is 6,000 years old +- whatever? Or believe that man was created to obey "god" and how do you define god? Or believe that Noah's flood created the Grand Canyon, or that some poor bloke lived inside the belly of a whale, or stones talk, or a man named Jesus is the son of god, born of a virgin, was crucified, died, was resurrected and ascended into heaven? or god punishes all who do not obey him and sends them to eternal damnation in a lake of fire and rewards those sheep who follow him with eternal life with relative who make no sense, or that one must be "born-again" to satisfy some unseeable being, or that there is no moral or ethical code without religion. 

You folks just make no sense to me and I am not interested in your people knocking on my door and calling me. I have very low regard for those who manipulate and exploit others using fear as a weapon instead of thinking reasonably. And above all else, keep your damnable beliefs out of science school rooms. Your message is just plain child abuse.
