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

With that last blast to you on Atheist Nexus, I go to chemo therapy and will be there about five hours as they drain a little bit of poison at a time into my body. I welcome it with gratitude and appreciation for the researchers who look for the best treatment and diet, the doctors and technicians who administer it, my family who  will hold my hand as I puke into whatever receptacle I can find and my support system that exists here at Atheist Nexus. Do not pray for me, get your exams regularly, and go to the best doctors you can find. Do not rely on voodoo herbalists who make claims that they cannot support with research. For those who do the research properly, separate those out from the witch doctors and think for yourself!

Yay to that lady that was not shy about saying she is an Atheist on national television!  I don't like Wolf Blitzer anymore. 

Joan!  I'm SO glad everything went well!!! I was thinking of you and waiting to hear. Also, that going under the ice video freaked me out!  I can't even imagine! Hugs from me!

Ian, you are very nice looking! I agree with Joan's advice about your Mum.  Glad you have family to go through this with you.

Carl, love the red dot cat! lol.

My daughter quit her summer job.  Too much pressure with her 3 online classes.  We told her it is perfectly fine with us, we just want her well and happy.  My lovely Mom put $1,000 into my daughter's checking-acct. and told her to have a fun summer! 

Happy hump-day you wonderful people!~ Mindy

Thank you for that video Tony! I'm so proud of her!
Comment by Joan Denoo on May 22, 2013 at 9:15am

Did you notice her expression when she reported being an atheist? I saw pride, self-respect, disdain and even sarcasm. I know, you will say I am reading into her countenance what I want to see. Did you notice how her interviewer backed right up! 

Well, I can tell you, at Sacred Heart Hospital, a Roman Catholic hospital started by Mother Joseph in 1856, whenever a technician asked my religion I spoke proudly, confidently, competently, that I am an atheist. One time I asked the questioner if that was a rare response and she said, "No, it as a very common one!" 

Hold our heads up high, with firm voices, backbones of steel and arms of velvet, say, "I am atheist." 

No one will faint or deny you services, except they do not do abortions, and I have an empty field and no need for one, nor a desire for one. If I needed or wanted an abortion, I would not be going there. 

My aunt Melda received her nursing training there, my mother worked there for many years, and I was a candy striper there from my 16th birthday when the sisters still wore burqas. They offer excellent care, and I give them credit for that.  

Just remember, think for yourself, do what is right for you, and be so very proud!

Tony, I love that clip! "Wolf Gets Blitzed"...tee-hee. 

Did anyone read the comments below the You Tube version?  they were almost all like, "Yeah, thank the lard for sending a ghastly tornado to kill more than 50 people, destroy hundreds of homes, and wipe out utilities for thousands."

BTW, what happened to our Friendly Neighborhood here?  I don't think I like the changes....

Comment by The Flying Atheist on May 22, 2013 at 12:45am

Great clip, Tony.  People need to realize that not everybody superfluously and automatically thanks god in a time of crisis.  Maybe he's learned a lesson and become a smarter man.
