Live Video Chat Party December 25th

Sapient's picture

On December 25th I will maintain a tradition I started a few years ago, celebrating Christmas day with nonbelievers via webcam, and you're invited!  I'll be joined by longtime RRS moderator and friend Shaunphilly and his girlfriend Seana, who was a Christian before she met Shaun.  Christmas can be a depressing day if you're a non-believer, especially if you feel alienated or unwelcome at festivities of a more religious nature.  We look forward to bringing together a large group of non-believers who want to hang out, blaspheme, and exchange stories of our religious past.  This is a gathering in both live text form and video format.  We encourage you to hook up your webcam as we can have up to 6 people on webcam at once.  Christians are welcome to visit as well!  

You'll need an account with http://www.stickam.com If you don't have one, get it now.  It's free!  

The party will happen in this room: http://www.rationalresponders.com/rrs_webcam_room

If you have a problem with that page you can also view it here: http://www.stickam.com/sapient

Here is the schedule of events:

1 est: The chatroom will open to members of stickam

2 est: Christmas related youtube video presentation along with text chatting.  I'll show a conglomeration of youtube videos dealing with the history of Christmas intertwined with some atheist comedy and blasphemy.  I've prepared over 3.5 hours of youtube videos, giving you the chance to comment on these videos live, while exchanging stories.  If you have a favorite Christmas video you want me to show, you have to link to it by Tuesday the 22nd as a response to this post!

6 pm est: Shaunphilly and his girlfriend will arrive at my home and we'll all appear on webcam.  At that point we will open up the extra camera slots to as many people as possible.  We will talk about a variety of issues including but not limited to the origins of Christmas, my purpose of Christmas project, the tree of knowledge, and more. During our broadcast we will order a traditional ChristMyAss Sushi and General Tso's Chicken dinner.  We invite you to eat your ChristMyAss dinner with us!  

9 pm est: In the past we've shown The God Who Wasn't There Movie but we've never shown the commentary track version, this time we will.  

Once again the festivities will be here:

I just got an e-mail from

I just got an e-mail from The Rapture Right...

We'll also be live on stickcam to "boycott" your "boycott" of christmas day, by ourselves not attending to our traditional christmas duties instead deciding to devote all of energy to "boycotting" the Rational Response squad.

Boycott the Rapture Right by not visiting them here: http://www.theraptureright.com/

I'm currently working with them now so they can debut their newest song (a Christmas song) during the broadcast.

Here's a free download of the Rapture Right show appearance on the Rational Response Squad show.  (right click - save target as) Consider it a Solstice gift from me to you.  You can subscribe to hear all of the shows here.

 Fuckity Fuck Fuck!  Ice

 Fuckity Fuck Fuck!  Ice storm currently slated to be here on Christmas day.  My area is prone to power outages and ice on power lines is the most likely to take out the power.  

I'll start working on a backup plan just in case, but if you happen to log in on Christmas Day and you don't see anything, check the weather in Philadelphia.

This is going to be awesome

It's been forever since I've seen a show, I've been busy with college and all, and for a while there were no shows. ut I hope I can be on sometime around 6 or 7,  I have to spend time "celebrating" Christmas with family. You should have a festivus party sometime, we did that with the Freethinkers club at my university, we had an airing of grievences and the festivus pole, it was a lot of fun. For those of you who don't know, festivus is a secular holiday that started in a Seinfeld episode one year. I really hope I can make it to the show this week.

I spent a ton of time putting together the videos to show on Christmas day.  Some of the videos will be new to you, some you've seen before.  You've probably never watched them with a bunch of other atheists in the chat room.  I've put them in a strategic order which includes comedy typically followed by Christmas history.  The stream will start with a 45 minute history of Christmas video from easeen and end with my favorites including Trapped in the Clauset, The Festivus, and A brief history of Christmas from HellboundAlleee.  I hope you enjoy!
