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.

So I've been thinking about this some lately, and I wanted to see what your thoughts were:I read a novel last fall that was making the rounds of Atheist blogs and what not called "Christian Nation", which is part alternative history and part…Continue

Science, Atheism & the Joyful Life -- by Sean Faircloth, Richard Dawkins Foundation

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 9. 6 Replies

Some speeches by atheists are factual and practical, dealing with the nuts and bolts of reality.  Some are diatribes against the superstitions we seek to overcome, pointing out the man behind the curtain and the fallacies and snake oil he tries to…Continue

Bedtime Bible Stories (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 8. 0 Replies

Uh, oh!  America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, is at it again, THIS time with bedtime stories!  Somehow with her retelling of some of the classics, I'm dubious that her versions would go over with the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson,…Continue

Chris, nice to receive your message and participation in the group hug! It does feel good. Your last day of the course, with tokens of appreciation from your students, life just doesn't get any better.

Over 50 messages while I slept and worked! But I'll still join in the group hug for the Patricia's anniversary, Joan's chemo, Felaine's sore head and cat, .... just for all of you.

Today was the last day of my course; flowers, kisses and presents for the teacher! They always make me happy!

Steph, this is a work of art. Di you do it? Very clever. All the elements are there, especially the head on the head! Try to duplicate that!

Flying Atheist that is so funny. I love it.

Patricia I love those flowers. So beautiful.

Her son has lived in Alberta for years now so his phones/internet is already there.

As for hearing any bad news, I don't know if any of the kids would get in touch as they don't know my address or email address, & I've had no contact with any of them since they grew up.

Her sister is something of a rotter, to put it politely, so I don't know about her.

I doubt anyone would even think to get in touch with me somehow. I can't find listings for anyone at 411 either as most of them now are wireless & not with the usual phone book type thing.

As for her daughter, I have no idea what last name she goes by as she's been married, divorced, & living with, that even Isabel has trouble knowing what name she uses.
