We’ve got Thunderf00t!

Yes, the awesome has just gone up another notch, because Thunderf00t has joined Freethoughtblogs.

You will never leave, ever again.


  1. Tony... therefore God says

    I hear that never leaving thing.
    Just keeping up with the blogs I like keeps me busy. I haven’t been able to really dig into various archives.
    I will say that I’ve started checking out some of the blogs and sites you recommend in the sidebar.

  2. throwaway says

    Ashley and AronRa and thunderf00t in a week’s time?!


    At that rate I’ll have my hard drive filled with nothing but bookmarks soon.

  3. says

    I already only have to type ‘f’ and my browser goes to Pharyngula. The only way to be closer is if I set freethoughtblogs.com as my browser’s Homepage.

    Welcome aboard, Thunderf00t.

  4. says

    Seriously. You guys are killing my work productivity! I can’t do work with Freethought Blogs pulling in all these awesome people. Unless…

    Hey PZ! If you ever get the chance to pull in a free-thinking computer scientist or an Internet security analyst, do it! Then I’ll be able to do my job while browsing FTB! :D

  5. briansmith says

    Oh great, between his fantastic youTube videos, and now what I am sure are going to be great blog postings, I am never going to get any work done.

    Seriously. You guys are killing my work productivity!

    I’ve had to cut back. I like to listen as well as read so having Zinnia Jones and AronRa really added to the too much time I’m here already.

  7. sundiver says

    Jesus iced haploid christ, thunderfOOt, Aron Ra, ZOMGitscris, cool shit. Considering that the line-up here was already great, well, genius likes company. One stop surfing for intellectual overload for me.

  8. Louis says

    FtB needs more synthetic chemists.

    Just sayin’


    P.S. No I am not volunteering, I wouldn’t a) know where to start, b) inflict that on anyone.

  9. Dave, the Kwisatz Haderach says

    Oh for fuck’s sake. I used to be able to keep up with the blogs and still manage a few minutes of work every day. Now I’m really screwed.

    Shhhh. Cris will be joining us later.

    Oh my nonexistant gods! AronRa and Thunderf00t and ZOMGitsCriss! I’m squeeing, I really am. Forget the rest of the interwebs, this is the only site I need.

  10. gworroll says

    He had a blog before, I was too lazy to actually keep up on it. Now that he’s here, yay! Easy keeping up on things for lazy people like me.

    I should look into RSS readers to more easily keep up on blogs elsewhere.

  11. Rip Steakface says

    P.S. No I am not volunteering, I wouldn’t a) know where to start, b) inflict that on anyone.

    I dunno Louis – you have prodigious comedic talents (at least as a writer) and definitely know how to argue a point. I think you’d be a great at it >_>

  12. says

    Cris will be joining us later.

    That is good news. I like how she doesn’t hold back. Tone be damned.

    And thirding Jacqueline Homan, based on what little I’ve read by her so far.

    So I’ve finally gotten around to adding an RSS/Atom reader widget to my phone that’s dedicated to authors here. With the stock reader on my Droid, I had the option of adding all feeds from the site with no author credit (just “Freethought Blogs”) or entering each author manually.

    I chose the latter.

    Success! Even though Tf00t is yet to be listed in the main page’s roster, the feed was added without grief.

    I will now be carrying each and every one of you on my hip.

    New authors will be added to my collection as they appear.

    Your published thoughts shall be spread to the surprisingly large population of people that I’ve met who seem to have questions about the things they were taught to believe as children but only as time and interest permit. (No shit. Polls are just showing that people being chicken-shit is geographic and socially instilled.)

    The thoughts published here will undoubtedly be criticized. That’s the very definition of “Critical Thought”.

    To those who offer up explanations of reality based on stuff that I can honestly present to my children as a glimpse at how this universe works, no standing ovation provided by this individual can suffice.

    To those who already have it all figured out:

    Please. Reconsider.

    Bill Donahue, Bill O’Reilly:

    Your words and actions are reasons that I am ashamed for being born a Catholic. When I explain to my aging mother why I’ve distanced myself from the horrible, anti-human, pro-supernatural mindset that she’s been exposed to since the ’30’s, she feels the pain of decades. If you think I feel pleasure in telling her that you are liars and self-serving, delusional assholes, you are mistaken. In fact, I will let her go to her grave without making her suffer through that Fact.

    My children, however, are a new generation. They already know that the hood has come off and we can see the face.


    Somebody light a match!

    I unsubscribed from Thunderfoot a long time ago, during his Condell-esque “you Muslims have awakened the sleeping giant of the West” Islamophobia phase.

  15. throwaway says

    I just lost a bookmark. I was only moderately familiar with Thunderf00t, and after reading this thread and his inaugural post, I won’t be missing him.

    AKA “we’re going to murder you…enmass…and it’s your fault via collective blame”

    Because our society is so insane that making a video saying “you individual person deserve to die and me and my organization are going to dedicate ourselves to killing you” is blatantly criminal, but when it comes to many many many people, say an entire nation or religion or region of the world it becomes ok!

  17. echidna says

    I loved his anti-creationist videos, and lost track of him after them. His inaugural post is disappointing, to say the least. He really doesn’t give the slightest impression that he knows anything about the subject; it’s all just hand waving.
