The Atheist Foundation of Australia is proud to say that it will be releasing full video footage of the 2010 Global Atheist Convention over the coming weeks, as excitement builds surrounding the announcement of the next Global Atheist Convention, to take place in April 2012.
The high quality video footage will be released for free via a designated channels on the popular video sharing sites YouTube and Vimeo. Both of these sites allow for full-length HD footage, as well as the ability to comment, share, bookmark and embed videos. Vimeo also offers the ability to download the video file. Look out for the subscription buttons, so you can easily be notified as soon as new footage is released.
The first presentation released is that of Professor Richard Dawkins, who spoke eloquently of the gratitude we should feel for our good fortune in being the products of a remarkable evolutionary process that could have so easily resulted in us not existing. The controversial Q&A session is also included, in which Dawkins’ comments about Pope Pius XII were famously taken out of context by Fairfax religion reporters Barney Zwartz and Jacqueline Maley. Both the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age later apologised for the mistake. The Herald Sun did not apologise or issue a retraction.
Further presentations will be released on the site over the coming weeks.
The DVD of highlights from the 2010 Global Atheist Convention, released by Siren Visual, is still available for purchase online, with a percentage of the proceeds going to the Atheist Foundation.
