Got an unexpected surprise today: I got to have lunch with Thunderf00t as he passed through Columbus.
TF is one of my atheist heroes from my college days. In my debates, I use many of his arguments to this day.
In person he is very polite, almost shy. I’ve gotten to meet a lot of my heroes as I’ve become more prominent as an activist. It’s always the best feeling when they turn out to be really good people.
