One More for the List

A couple of days ago, JT Eberhard wrote a post about the five best atheists. His nominations:

1. PZ Myers
2. Greta Christina
3. Hemant Mehta
4. Dave Silverman
5. Matt Dillahunty

All good choices, but he left out one of my favorite bloggers and activists:

JT Eberhard

Unapologetic, brave, honest, and compassionate, JT Eberhard is everything that we could hope for from the next generation of activists. If you meet him at an event, he’s one of the warmest, most sincere people you’ll ever meet. And if you can’t find him, just send him a tweet at @jteberhard and he’ll let you know where to meet up. Aside from his hobby of eviscerating theist arguments, JT donates spends countless hours of his time to working for the Secular Student Alliance, fighting for the rights of students to grow up in an environment that doesn’t make them feel ostracized for being atheists. Call him a role model. Call him humanity’s best chance in a zombie apocalypse. Call him a friend. Just don’t call him a hero.

    Bah. Call him a hero!
    What’s he gonna do about it? Not return a hug? Sing off key? Write another blog post claiming he’s not a hero?
