Recently, a 20-year-old University of Washington student named Adam Burtle posted an unusual item on the Internet auction site eBay. The bidding began at 5 cents on this particular article and eventually reached $400 by the end of the auction. It was listed under the heading of “20 yr-old Seattle boy’s SOUL, hardly used.”


Burtle, a professed atheist, stated in the listing that potential buyers should “realize I make no warranties as to the condition of the soul. As of now, it is near mint condition, with only minor scratches.” Apparently, this isn’t the only time this Internet auction site has been used for the “sale of a soul.” A spokesman for eBay pointed out that eBay had blocked such auctions before; Burtle’s posting somehow slipped through the cracks. Of course, He intended the ad to be a joke but it does say something about the value that people today place on their immortal soul.
