"Minecraft is essentially virtual Legos, right?  I don't see a problem in encouraging creativity.  Ultima IV came out in '85, and while there are free copies you can download online, you may have trouble getting him to play…"

Kevin C Jenkins replied to Marc Draco's discussion Don't call me a Skeptic! in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"I think it doesn't much matter.  Either they don't know what the term means and you have a communication failure, or they do understand and thus attribute all the same traits to it that they associate with synonymous terms. …"

"You know, all this talk of Compassion, Valour, Honour, and such reminds me of the Ultima series.  I really think that contemplation of the virtue system from 'Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar' in my formative years had a big impact on…"

"Though they may often be confused, there is certainly a difference between chivalry and chauvinism.  The former considers honour as a measure of one's own behaviour, while the latter mistakes honour for a measure of the opinions of…"

"I find it useful to remind myself that most dichotomies are false ones.  The various dimensions of a person's sexual orientation lie along spectra, making the rainbow an appropriate symbol for anyone that's atypical, or for anyone…"

"I've generally considered the biological aspect of the emotion to be 'empathy', but the exercise or practise thereof to be 'compassion'.  I guess it's a personal connotational difference.  Anyway... I've…"

Kevin C Jenkins replied to Alice's discussion Which Is More Important: Truth or Happiness? in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"For me, the main thing I 'miss' about there being no afterlife is that there are just so many things I will never get to know.  If I had an eternity of consciousness, I'd spend it exploring the universe.  I'll go with…"

"One of the hosts of the Reasonable Doubts podcast is a psychologist, and he mentioned some findings that indicate that's more of a universal bias.  Most people attribute their own beliefs and actions to reason, while attributing those of…"

"It's the people, not the label they use.  'Brights' are only unified by one thing - a naturalistic worldview - just as atheists are only unified by one thing - the rejection of belief in god(s).  Not all are going to be very…"

Welcome to Atheist Nexus!

Nexus has many ways for members to be involved, make friends, learn, and express yourself.   The welcome center is composed of Nexus volunteers, sort of like greeters at your favorite store.

 

Get to know people with similar interests by searching on Groups.  Use the search box on the Groups page, or browse through the many pages of groups, to see what's there.  There are Nexus groups for many states, cities, countries, personal expression, hobbies, and many other groups.  Get to know people based on what you enjoy, or what you have in common with others.

 

Ongoing forum discussions are more general interest than the groups.

MeetupTo find local atheist groups and make friends or chat, check out Meetup.com.  (note, Meetup is not connected to AN).  Join Meetup and search on a key word, such as atheist, skeptic, freethought, to find a group.

Support Nexus by visiting Amazon.com through Nexus (see the Amazon box on the right).  Buying from Amazon via the Nexus site does not increase your cost, but results in a small donation going to Nexus.

Terms of service helps you know the "rules".  You can also find the TOS on the bottom right of the main screen.

The right sidebar shows recent posting activities and discussions by Nexus members.  Click on "more" at the bottom for additional activities.

 

If you have general questions about Nexus, how to find what you want, or other questions, feel free to ask me or another volunteer member of the Welcome center!

Enjoy!
