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 says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

What Bible-believing types mean by "faith" is not what some of you have suggested, although quite rightly, it may have that connotation to you. To them (I speak from the vantage point of a former Christian), it means 'the belief in things unseen and the hope for things to come'. It is a source of relatively rational strength for many serious believers. It doesn't always lead to wild-eyed, tongue-speaking, snake-handling, child-sacrificing madness.
Moreover, just because I am now an atheist does not exempt me from this relatively harmless human practice of optimism prior to the onset of reality's weightiness.

Good night, lady and gentleman - to sleep perchance to dream - that is the question.  a lesson on how to create catastrophic confusion for Shakespeare students.

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.

Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.

Isn't faith like wanting wishing hoping to be or become true? Faith sounds like a stupid word.

About respect: A long time ago (30 or 40 years) I was watching some kind of serious talk show, a panel discussion, and somebody said (about someone else's religion), "Well, I don't agree with him, but I have to respect him for it." He meant for having faith.  And I thought, "WHY?"


"Faith is beleivin' what you know ain't so." Mark Twain
