” I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct of revenge, for which no means are venomous enough, or secret, subterranean and small enough – I call it the one immortal blemish upon the human race.” –Friedrich Nietzsche-
My name is RJ Evans, the “American Heathen®”. I’m 53 years old. I have been a professional broadcaster and musician for most of my life. I’ve been married for 32 years and have no children. My wife and I are Atheist. We de-converted from Christianity 11 years ago. We embrace science, logic and reason. We strongly defend the United States Constitution, the First Amendment, and the principles of freedom and liberty for ALL. We are sane Libertarians politically, but registered as Independents. We believe a two-party system is extremely divisive and ineffective. From the Neocon Religious Right to the Ultra Liberal Socialist Left, the two-party system feeds extremism and fails to address the majority middle ground of American ideals.
I’m intolerant of religious dogma foisted upon the masses. Don’t preach to me or anyone who doesn’t ask for it. And if you decide to preach any religious doctrine without following its teachings to the letter yourself, you are a hypocrite and subject to my verbal wrath. I also despise lack of personal responsibility in the name of mythological entities.
I HATE your religion. I DON’T HATE you. In most cases I don’t know you at all. I cannot hate someone for simply being human. Your choice of any particular religious belief is yours to make, and I will (and do) defend your right to believe anything you’d like. But, the moment you place your belief into the public sphere, it IMMEDIATELY becomes part of the free market of ideas and therefore is subject to criticism, mockery, and disdain just like any other idea. Your beliefs are NOT sacred to me.
I encourage you to read the articles I present here. If you are a believer in deities, I implore you to entertain your own doubts and use reason and logic to evaluate what is written. If you engage your mind, you will find that religion is bullshit. If you fall back on your faith, you’re living your life in fear of reality.
For those of you that might want to comment on what is written here, I invite you to submit your comments. However, I have one rule that will dictate whether or not your comment is published. Your comment must be logical and reasoned. I will not accept comments that are based in religious dogma, supposition, personal experiences, or “feelings”. Your preaching, your faith, your holy books, your testimony to the power of the skyfairy, is meaningless and invalid. It will not be published. However, I reserve the right to publish ANY comment that might fall within any of the above criteria, and to respond accordingly.
