We're trying to increase the 3 of displayed discussions, consolidate the gay groups, and keep the group timely. The Social Networking platform is a bit slow to get us there, but I hope that we eventually get there.

Once again, welcome!

Hiram, welcome to Atheist Nexus. Be sure to check out the GROUPS page to find like-minded people.

I've started nine groups here, so please join any you think you might be interested in. We’d love to have your contributions.

HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.

FOUR SCORE AND SEVEN YEARS AGO: American history, politics, and culture: A non-partisan look at our past and how it influences our lives today.

THE KNIFE & FORK is a group for anyone who has a strong interest or mild curiosity in food, cooking, eating, drinking, and nutrition.

HUMANE ATHEISTS is a group for people who are interested in trying to live a humane life by understanding the issues surrounding animal welfare.

CONSUMER ETHICS was created to help us understand how our purchasing power can help or harm the world around us.

LINGUAPHILES & SESQUIPEDALIANS is a group for people who love languages, words, and grammar.

ARS POETICA is a group for those who love poetry, anyone who is just curious, and everyone in between.

LOVERS OF SHAKESPEARE is a group for fans of the Bard. Topics are open to just about anything Shakespeare.

ODDITORIUM is a group dedicated to the all that which is bizarre and unusual in the world.

I haven't read that, but Octavia was a wonderful lady and we all miss her. Hopefully our group can help you navigate all the wonderfully strange experiences science fiction and fantasy have to offer.
