Hello everyone,

My name is Mark and I live in Nashville, TN. I just joined Atheist Nexus today, although I have known about it for a year or two from all of the freethought podcasts that I subscribe to.

I got married on 11/7 and just got back from a great Caribbean honeymoon. My wife is also atheist. We attend the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Nashville, and while I am neither a Unitarian or a Universalist, it is a great community with lots of like-minded and highly intelligent people. We also occasionally attend events hosted by the Nashville chapter of Americans United.

I am looking forward to meeting people, especially fellow Middle Tennesseans, because as most people know, this area can be very lonely for atheists at times!

Welcome to the site, Mark. Congratulations on your wedding! Was the ceremony held at the UU site?

What island(s) did you visit in the Caribbean?
Sounds like a nice mix of places to visit. I'll admit to being envious...need some time in the tropics...I'm due.
Nashville eh? Country capitol as it's called, I rebuke that fact.... but another time. I'm from Kingston myself. The one that was capitol for a day because they were afraid of them (don't remember who) attacking.

Congratulations on your marriage from myself all well Mark.

As for the lonely part... I can relate from over here. My school is around 90% dead blood Christian. From Baptist to Church of God. I wear shirts (obviously home made) saying things as simple as Atheist. On my recent Birthday (Nov. 16) I wore one that said:

We are good. (Pun from the Bible, what's in the brackets was not on the shirt.)
Would you wish one a "happy" Birthday.

This was enlightening because my little was of getting people used to me this was has some Christan friend truly accepting me at this point. I never argue when someone tries, just express my point and move on.

But now I've babbled, sorry. One thing I'd like to know (Because I've been contemplating going for deals) is are there cheep guitars there from aspiring players that never pulled through? Because I play myself and was thinking I'd get a nice guitar from a rich boy that fell through pretty cheep.

Welcome and glad to meet you.
