Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 851
Latest Activity: 1 hour ago

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.

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

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Feb 15. 4 Replies

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

What, separation of church and state? How unthinkable for a memorial.
Comment by Chris Dodds on August 24, 2011 at 11:03pm
Look, I'm all for equality at Ground Zero, but wouldn't it be easier to just take down all the religious symbolism and replace it all with, oh I don't know, the American Flag?

Don't forget a stylized capital "A" for any closeted atheists, too.
Comment by Carl Pastor on August 24, 2011 at 10:19pm
yes you are right alexa and of course yu are right too sk8.  there must be a piece of metal shaped like a crescent for the muslems that were there and died, and of course a lump of melted metal that looks like a buddha for the buddhists.

the earthquake was NOT in NY. it was in virginia and felt all the way up here in nyc and as far as the circle of the quake went (like when you drop a pebble in the water), which was all over the east coast. by the way, we are very aware of the old, old faults here as well.

Re: WTC "cross" 


Fundies are so narrow-minded that it doesn't occur to them that those towers weren't occupied by xians only.  Or even American citizens only.


And I wonder how many more years we are going to wallow in this.  We still remember Dec. 7th.  But we've almost totally forgotten July 20, 1969.  Disgusting.
