Rev. Stephanie Clarke started the first multi-racial, metaphysical, community in Johannesburg in the year 2000 with the intention of healing the wounds of Apartheid. It was totally successful but, as a one-woman show, I burnt out and left S. Africa. From 2005-2015 I taught and marketed English language programmes in Europe and Japan until Spirit called me back to S. Africa to take care of my elderly parents. That was in 2015. I am delighted to be home and to be back in the spiritual saddle. I regularly offer the Sunday talks at Soul Home and enjoy giving my support to Rev. Gerd Pontow, my student and successor, and our amazing rainbow community, so deeply anchored in unconditional love. It is truly a prototype for what is possible in South Africa.

As a professional historian, published philosopher, and prominent defender of the American freethought movement, Dr. Carrier has appeared across the U.S., Canada and the U.K., and on American television and London radio, defending sound historical methods and the ethical worldview of secular naturalism. His books and articles have received international attention. With a Ph.D. from Columbia University in ancient history, he specializes in the intellectual history of Greece and Rome, particularly ancient philosophy, religion, and science, with emphasis on the origins of Christianity and the use and progress of science under the Roman empire. He is also a published expert in the modern philosophy of naturalism as a worldview. He is the author of On the Historicity of Jesus, Proving History, Sense and Goodness without God, Science Education in the Early Roman Empire, Not the Impossible Faith, Why I Am Not a Christian, and Hitler Homer Bible Christ, and a contributor to The Empty Tomb, The Christian Delusion, The End of Christianity, and Christianity Is Not Great, as well as copious work in history and philosophy, online and in print. He is currently working on several projects, but also teaching affordable online courses in secular philosophy, history, and methodology at The Secular Academy, and blogging and speaking about history, philosophy, feminism, and other moral causes, as well as his past in the military and his current life in polyamory. Dr. Kenneth W. Rhodes, II is Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Scofield Graduate School and Theological Seminary in Modesto, California. Dr. Rhodes (Pastor Kenny) also serves as the founding President of Scofield Seminary with Dr. Mal Couch serving as Vice-President. Pastor Kenny is Sr. Pastor of Mable Avenue Ministries, a ministry that oversees a number of church plants, para-church ministries and educational institutes around the world.

He is committed to Christian Apologetics and giving "an answer" to everyone. He is also involved and committed to the study of Hermeneutics, Calvinistic Dispensational Theology, and Creation Science. Pastor Kenny is part of a growing number of young theologians who have embraced true reformed theology and its implications for all doctrines of Scripture namely, that God elected Israel and their election is not subject to their sin "un-electing" them. Therefore, Israel is not replaced by the Church. This "new" historical theological view has been coined "Calvinistic Evangelical Dispensationalism." It is truly in the spirit of the premillennialism of the early church fathers, Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Scofield, Chafer, Ryrie, S. Lewis Johnson, and so on. Special Guests: Kenny Rhodes, Ph.D and Richard Carrier, Ph.D.

In 2016 Hughes launched a failed fundraising attempt for a rocket that earned only $310. After converting to believe in a flat Earth later that year, Hughes gained support of the flat-Earth community. His post-flat-Earth fundraising campaign made its $7,875 goal. He intends to make multiple rocket journeys, culminating in a flight to outer space, where he believes he will be able to take a picture of the entire Earth as a flat disk. He claimed in November 2017 that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) had given him verbal permission more than a year ago to launch his rocket, pending approval from the Federal Aviation Administration; however, a BLM spokesman said its local field office had no record of speaking to Hughes at the time. According to the BLM, after seeing some news articles about the planned launch, a BLM representative reached out to Hughes with concerns. The rocket launch was originally scheduled for the weekend of 25 November 2017; Hughes then rescheduled for 2 December, blaming ongoing difficulties in obtaining permissions. Hughes moved his launch pad four miles so that he will take off and lands on private property; however, the BLM maintains he still needs to fill out permits. Hughes defiantly stated the dispute would not stop him flying: "I'm a daredevil. I'm not much for authority or rules." The untested initial rocket is intended to reach a speed of 500 mph; further rocket trips, to be launched from a balloon 20 miles up, are intended to reach above the atmosphere into outer space. Hughes acknowledged there are risks, telling the Associated Press: "It's scary as hell. But none of us are getting out of this world alive." A fundraising campaign to cover the costs of the delay raised only around 100 of its 10,000 USD goal. On 3 February 2018 Hughes live-streamed another attempted to launch in front of spectators, but the rocket failed to ignite. Special Guests: Aron Ra and “Mad Mike” Hughes.

We've all had thoughts, felt desires and committed sins we would never speak of. We bury these skeletons so far deep in our cerebral closets that we almost forget they ever existed in the first place. The thought of them ever being resurrected from memory's abyss is enough to make us curl into the fetal position... Unless your name is Alex Botten. Special Guest: Alex Botten.

Incredible!

The NonSequitor show goes above and beyond. The Kent Hovind vs. Aron Ra showdown was epic!

A New Voice For a Community That Has Become Divided.
Mar 05, 2018 by Tony Reed

I first experienced this channel as an invite to a discussion. I had no idea what to expect, so I was pleasantly surprised to see how Steve McRae deftly handles divisive issues. This is not to say he has no biases, they certainly are there, but he handles discussions with an interesting compromise between allowing all opinions to be heard, allowing all opinions to be questioned, and a propensity to stay out of the discussion and let ideas flow. Because of this, Influential voices like AronRa, King Crocoduck, and Kent Hovind, who don't all agree, feel confident enough to present their ideas openly and honestly. Definitely worth a listen and a subscription just to avoid some of the best debates on Youtube.

Great conversations with interesting people
Mar 05, 2018 by Heretic Woman

Steve and Kyle do a great job of being fair with everyone, even people they disagree with. They put a lot of work into what they do and it shows. Great conversations and very interesting guests!

Great discussions with interesting people from across the board that will captivate the open-minded.
Mar 05, 2018 by FineMan

I ran across this show on twitter and gave the first episode a try. It's less than a week later now and I've plowed through several more trying to catch up on all their content. I especially enjoyed the discussions with Kent Hovind, or "Dr. Dino". The hosts did a great job moderating and remaining fair and unbiased while no allowing either side to question-dodge as best they could. They also have a YouTube stream so you can tap into some of these discussions with the added visual dimension. This was great with Aron Ra, whose entertaining physical presence is only eclipsed by the enthusiastic machine-gun delivery of pertinent scientific facts. Not all episodes are so emotionally charged, and I enjoy the fluid dialogue that the show presents when the guests have more congenial relationships. I'm definitely staying subscribed to this one.
