Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

Joan, I love the kitten and the lizard, too.  That's such a typical "cat thing"...trying to get up the courage to swat something.  I've seen my older cat do that once or twice at the younger (but not by much) one when they chase each other around the house.

Ahah!  I had to laugh at this...people posting faked photos that were supposed to be of yesterday's storm...THAT'S why I call it "FakeBook."  Too many people who don't bother to fact-check anything before they post it or email it:

Ps: I love "I love you, couch." 

I think Hairy Jerry loves my glasses; he licks the lenses when I fall asleep with them on...then I wake up with my "vision" all blurry. Just what I need first thing in the morning - cleaning dried cat spit off my glasses. (Maybe it's a good thing that I don't wear contact lenses.)

You can't tell me we have common ancestors!

8-cat, hope you don't mind me shortening your handle.  I still can't remember how to spell it.  I agree with everything you said about HillBilly Graham-Cracker (love that name for him!).

The bible is so contradictory and unclear, but even if it were clear, it would still prove nothing.

Ruth, glad you came-out OK.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 30, 2012 at 11:24am

Thanks, everybody. I appreciate your concern.

Comment by Steph S. on October 30, 2012 at 11:11am

We were worried about you Ruth! So glad to hear from you and know that you are safe and doing well.

Comment by Lillie on October 30, 2012 at 11:10am

Glad you are safe, Ruth.  Hope everyone is.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 30, 2012 at 9:45am

Good to hear from you so soon, Ruth.  Glad you managed through with minimal problems. 

Comment by Ian Mason on October 30, 2012 at 1:24am

Glad to hear that, Ruth.

Comment by Plinius on October 30, 2012 at 1:01am

I'm glad you're all right, Ruth!
