Thunderf00t (aka: Phil Mason) is an atheist YouTube video blogger.He is famous for his series of videos Why Do People Laugh at Creationists? where he lampoons the Young Earth Creationists; in addition of those he has also made scientific videos and exchanges between fellow video bloggers.His YouTube channel can be found here, and his web blog here.
Tropes associated with Thunderf00t:
Arch-Enemy: VenomFangX. At least back when the latter was a bit more active on youtube.
These days, he's locked in mortal combat against skeptical/feminist blogger Rebecca Watson of skepchick.org.
Artistic License - Economics: While he is very professional and knowledgeable in the field of his expertise such as biology and physics, his understanding on economic concepts such as the definition of what a 'free market' stands for was questionable at best.
Averted with his criticism of Solar Roadways, in which he actually points out this trope from the part of the proposers, while going through all the cost-benefit analysis and the actual economics involved if such project is ever realized.
Double Standard: He points out in a video how some prominent people in the videogame industry take Anita Sarkeesian's ideas seriously, while dismissing the ones from the likes of Jack Thompson and Glenn Beck, since they both essentially advocate that videogames affect the behavior of gamers (something that has been debunked by recent studies), provoking violence according to Thompson and Beck and misogyny according to Sarkeesian.
Fun with Acronyms: His personal brand of atheism is called PEARL, which stands for Physical Evidence And Reasoned Logic.
Humiliation Conga: Famously he delivered one to Christian vblogger VenomfangX, after several exchanges which culminated with the latter unfairly DMCAing Thunderf00t's videos, thecounterattack was epic.
I Did What I Had to Do: His explanation of his actions after being expelled from FreeThoughtBlogs, in which he published and forwarded the emails of the FTB private backchannel in which he published and forwarded the emails of the FTB private backchannel where the members discussed and plotted on how to ruin the careers and lives of all those in the secular community who had said dissented from FTB. On the other hand, the list contained private information on the private lives of the bloggers, prompting one transgendered blogger to quit due to the risk, and the FTB community claims that it was an unnecessary and vindictive breach of backchannel privacy.
Implied Death Threat: Infamously, he received one from Muslim video blogger Dawahfilms, after several videos Tf00t made critical of Islam.
Mundane Made Awesome: Several videos deal with seemingly mundane things like explosions of potassium and water, and then he starts showing how interesting are the chemical mechanisms involved and pointing out at unanswered questions.
Playing the Victim Card: He accuses fundamentalist Christians doing this by them claiming to be oppressed; the same goes for feminists like Rebecca Watson and Anita Sarkeesian who claim to be attacked because of misogyny on the internet, to which he points out "If you say stupid shit online, people will call you for it" regardless of you are a man or a woman.
Political Correctness Gone Mad: He has taken issue on what he perceives is an increasingly whiny attitude towards speech that might be considered "offensive", mainly because of the censoring of free speech that would ensue and that the best counter to a stupid/hateful argument is to rebut it and, if necessary, ridicule it, not suppress it.
Shown His Work: The vast majority of time his points are extremely well-researched, as he will quote the studies of the subject, and he will also examine the opponents quoted studies to test the validity of their claims.
What the Hell, Hero?: The reaction of some of his fans to his actions of publishing and forwarding the private mails of the FTB backchannel (especially when it involved exploiting a security loophole to regain access to it), see I Did What I Had to Do.
