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.

BC is still in production. Here's the Wikipedia entry on the strip: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B.C._(comic_strip)

Mindy! Good news! Now, on to great thoughts and actions that bring you joy, comfort, and satisfaction!

Mindy, good news about your test results.

Apparently the "xian Archie" comics came out in the late 1960s, or early '70s, and were not published by the company that published the original comics.  I'm not even sure that they were done by the original artist-writer(s).  The major comic book publishers, usually had a stable of artists, and several might work on a single issue.  One artist-writer did all the "xian Archie" books.

Johnny Hart (B.C.) died in 2007, but the LA Times dropped "B.C." after the 2001 Easter fiasco, where a lit menorah slowly burned down into a cross, so I don't know if somebody else is doing the strip now, or if they're doing re-runs, or what...  (I mean the Times is reprinting "Peanuts")

Great news, Mindy. Glad to hear that you're not abnormal.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 28, 2014 at 12:58pm

Never heard about Archie, and I've been aware of Johnny Hart's predilection for christianity for longer than I care to think.

In both cases, anything associated with the other side of the conversation is set up as a straw man - no serious conversation or discussion of what atheism MIGHT be beyond that, which is predictable.

Yay!

Comment by booklover on April 28, 2014 at 12:34pm
I just found that Archie comic when I was on Facebook and thought it was bizarre, so I shared. You are right Spud! And B.C. also? Disappointing!
I got my pathology report today from last Mondays surgery, and no abnormal cells! Yay!

I juust found an interesting article about the xian conversion of "Archie," and it happened LONNNNG after I stopped reading comics and playing with paper dolls.
