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.

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

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

Loren, I would have loved being at that get together with you and the other atheists.  

I wouldn't want an autograph or even a handshake (I'm a slight germaphobe), but I would very much like a picture with you and some others, especially Richard Dawkins.

Brent, it's too bad that you had to leave because of a bully.  I hope he's gone for good.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 8, 2014 at 9:49am

For those of you who are interested, I've posted my impressions of The Unbelievers in my blog.  There may be more regarding the book signing, which left its own impressions and which I think want some commentary.

I WILL get there eventually!

Patricia, what a sad childhood.  I don't know what to say, so I'll just say I second what Joan has said.

I think it would do me good to work at being humorous like you do.

How cool Loren!

Ian, great pictures!

Patricia, I'm glad you have a good life now.  You deserve it!

Hi Brent, I'm Mindy.  I don't know if we've ever talked before!  I'm glad you came back though!

Comment by Pat on April 8, 2014 at 7:15am

Outstanding Loren! Can't wait to read the review.

Comment by Plinius on April 8, 2014 at 7:05am

Welcome back Ian, and thanks for the pictures, I like them very much.

" many need help just to survive their families"

Very true, but the stories are told and shared here: we're in good company!

I imagine that at least a couple of you want to know how The Unbelievers was last night.  I will likely be a little while writing about that, but in the meantime, here's a little something to let you all know that yours truly wasn't just blowing smoke:

Grottos at Rosh HaNrika, near the Lebanese border.

Smart wheels, Patricia.

Dome of the Rock and little brother.
