Basic Description Edit

13Heathens (also known as Shadow Heathen, 13Shadows, and Freelance Vigilante) is an accomplished writer and storyteller, and is knowledgeable on a variety of topics, including cults, shamanism, Native American spirituality, psychology, mental illness and religious history. Of course, he'll never admit to any of that.

13 got his start on YouTube back in 2008, with an extensive series of videos attacking the Church of $cientology and dissecting the inane writings of L Ron Hubbard. (See this playlist for an archive of some of this content.) He eventually moved onto making videos related to the age-old atheist vs. theist discussion (aka the "Great Debate"), while refusing to identify as a member of either camp.

In 2015, he put together a well-researched series of videos debunking New Age spirituality and pseudoscientific claims, entitled "The Power of Woo".

13 is currently working on getting some of his books published, so he's fairly inactive on G+ right now.

Insomnia Shuffle Edit

From 2014 through 2016, 13Heathens ran semi-regular late night hangouts called the Insomnia Shuffles during which much lulz were had. Shuffles were on an indefinite hiatus since late 2016, but have recently resumed and can be found on the Shadow Heathen channel.
