Skepchicamp organizers flatter me so.
They’re auctioning me off to the highest bidder. But I’m not going to church this time.
The winner and I are just going on a date.
Churches once bid on eBay for the chance to have Hemant Mehta, The Friendly Atheist, attend one of their services. Now you can bid on the chance to have him spend an evening with you.
This auction will take place at the Skepchicamp fundraiser on January 23rd. Tickets are on sale and cost $30 until January 16. Afterwards, tickets go up to $40. The ticket price includes free food and drinks. There are a limited number of tickets still available.
Proceeds from ticket sales and the auction will go towards Skepchicamp, an informal skeptical gathering set for March 6th at the Galway Arms, 2442 N. Clark St, Chicago, IL 60614. The event will feature Mehta, Surly Amy of Surly Ramics, and Skepchick blogger Elyse Anders. Rebecca Watson is also scheduled to participate in a panel discussion over the Internet.
Besides being one of the most eligible atheist bachelors, he runs the Friendly Atheist Blog, is the chair of the Secular Student Alliance, and a representative to the Secular Coalition for America. He also teaches mathematics at a suburban high school.
I would like to point out that I like females.
But if a male wants to donate a hefty amount to Skepchicamp via the auction, I’ve been told I will change my mind.
