Hi. I am Hekataios Pindaros Amerikos and this blog spot is Pagan Voices Almanac. Today I introduce both. I am a Pagan, a philosopher, a veteran, and an author. This blog spot is not primarily about promoting my book, but I do believe that my book is an essential element toward greater understanding. It is entitled “Apocalypse and Armageddon, the Secret Origins of Christianity: The First Shall be Last and the Last Shall be First“. As one may suspect by this title, I was once a fundamentalist Christian and I am well-educated in that venue. My book not only elaborates on the earliest, formative history of what became Christianity (the history that the powers-that-be do not want the general public to know about in detail), bringing out the brutal truth based upon fact, not faith or belief, it is also a catharsis, of sorts, for me bringing out in historical terms why I am no longer a Christian. In short, it is my belief that if one knows the real history then it should test one’s faith. For those who can read it and retain their faith, more power to them, for this book is not about beating up on Christianity, but about telling the truth based upon cold, hard facts. For those who cannot, like me, we sense that there must be some other truth or way to truth, then. I personally find that truth or truths by way of ancient western philosophy and religion. Our ancestors were so much more than we tend to give them credit for. They were not stupid brutes who needed help from aliens to crawl up the evolutionary chain! And, essentially, I want their voices to be heard here through myself and other bloggers.
That said, this blog site is not yet completely functional as I am learning how to use it myself. Once it is fully active, there will be two main rules for anyone who wishes to post or comment here. First, if you are a hater or hatemonger (and you already know whether you are or not), then you are not welcome to post here. I will have no sympathy for anyone posting hateful material toward any other person here or toward any religion. We may not all agree on everything and, in fact, I am sure that we won’t. But attacks on people and their religion will simply not be tolerated here. Second, no racist materials or statements will be allowed. Period. Both men and women as well as all races and cultures are welcome to express their views as long as they adhere to these rules.
My ultimate aim with this blog is to work toward the creation of an on-line Pagan magazine that, I hope, will be unique, but not too much unlike others already out there. It is my objective that it work toward greater understanding between religions so that, ultimately, modern Paganism may be recognized and respected as a legitimate religion, which, today, it generally is not. I am about dispelling the myths associated with Paganism and bringing out what Paganism is really all about. We have been painted as perverse, immoral, etc. for too long. This must change. It is truly time for this to happen.
