Video of My “eBay Auction” Talk

Occasionally, I give talks about the eBay auction and my book to various groups.

I talk about the auction itself (“No, I did not sell my soul“), the aftermath (“Kirk Cameron, what happened to you?“), and the various ways atheists can get our message out to a larger audience (“Step one: Don’t be mean“).

Earlier this month, I spoke to the Humanists of West Suburban Chicagoland at a unitarian church in Naperville, IL.

Below is a brief excerpt from that talk. In it, I refer to the moment I decided to auction my church-going time on eBay and the initial media reaction to it. Hope you enjoy!

(Thanks to Joanne Reid for producing the video and Jack Sechrest for putting the event together.)

    Nice talk!

    I love your Chicago accent!

  • Nice to finally see you in action! 🙂

  • That was a very enjoyable few minutes of talk. Is the full talk available anywhere?

    I can’t believe they (the radio show mentioned near the end) do that to random people on the street! That’s rough, and it’s sad to see examples of non-“friendly” Christians out there.

    The thing is, the friendly Christians/Muslims/etc. and the friendly atheists don’t make much of a splash in the public sphere by being friendly and tolerant. People don’t usually take note of the atheists who stay civil and don’t try to force their beliefs on others. They notice the atheists who make noise, and that noise is often angry and bitter. It makes me really happy to see you making noise that promotes understanding and acceptance. Keep it up!

  • Nooo! It stopped too soon. Put it back. Put it back!

    Sarah, you can see them in action on YouTube. Here’s an example – start at the 4:50 mark.
