Hiding behind the moniker of the Prince of Darkness is a faux-avant-garde atheist/humanist/science freak/free-thinker/conoisseur slacker, ranting about evolution, contemplating the true nature of love, and wondering why the hell one has to go to Stockholm to get a decent pint. Has a more or less thoroughly naturalistic worldview, and considers religion to be a rather grave insult to the human intellect - little more than a mix-up of oral tradition, the human need for answers, and cheesy fiction. Therefore, he can't really see any reason to take the medieval, superstitious and black-and-white worldviews of religion (Abrahamic or not) seriously. Promotes secular ethics, loves his family, and enjoys throwing a party every now and then. If the Judeo-Christian mythology is indeed correct, instead of the Aztec or Slavonic, he may very well turn out to be the Antichrist. The position intrigues him, and he has all the characteristics: an impeccable suit, cane, and hat (all in black), a cultured demeanor and a mephistophelic smile (What, you thought Old John looked like a Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson shock rock clown? Listen to Sympathy for the Devil again. Satan is a man of refined manners).
Reading his blog, you’ll probably find him caught in the midst of lazy ramblings rife with natural science, obscure references to dead white men, Tarantino-esque overdoses of popular culture, and seemingly random obscenities. Quite fucking Zen.
