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

Welcome back, Rhonda.

Stay safe, American friends.

Joan, I resemble that remark!

(I like that very savory, brown yeast extract -- a little goes a long way, though!)

Haven't been in here in months.  Glad I am finally back.  I have no idea how everyone has been, but I hope you all are well

Stay safe during the hurricane. 

Stay away from the tons of crap around the election. I am so sick of the same lies being told over and over again by people who will get nothing done, in the end.  I think a yearn and a half is too long to waste on elections, doing absolutely nothing.

Anyway, glad to be back.

You have storm worries Ruth, & we had a large earthquake off our coast last night. Luckily it was remotely centered so no damage, but tsunami was a concern.

We will be thinking of you Ruth.  I agree that Sandy may be not just a fluke, but the new normal in changes we are seeing with the Earths weather, etc.  I hope you don't lose power or have your basement flood!  Hang tight! We are land-locked here in Northern IL, but there are tornadoes aplenty!

Joan, I love the pic of the chimp hugging the dog.
