Hello!

I think you are our first Estonian member. Your English is perfect! I take it it's your second language?

Welcome to HAF.

Regards
Chris

Welcome to HAF, Merx!
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Estonia. One of those countries I have absolutely nothing against. (Yes, it is a bit rare)

In fact, I'm going to Pärnu to sort-of-visit some sort-of-distant family later this year.

... So yeah. Welcome and stuff.

Welcome to HAF, merx. I visited Tallinn in 2005 as part of a Baltic cruise. Loved that place and hope to be back there soon.

Would you like us to comment/critique your English? It's perfectly understandable so there is no need unless you want to tidy up some rough edges.

Are you unusual in your atheist outlook in Estonia? In the UK it's not really an issue. If fact evangelical theists are viewed as 'odd' even by mainstream theists. In some parts of the US it is very mush an issue. I'm in the UK so atheism vs theism very rarely raises it's head as far as Christianity is concerned. It's a bit more of an issue with regard to Islam as there is a minority of Muslims that do actively attempt to promote Sharia.
