DonExodus2 is an American YouTube evolutionary biologist with over 40,000 subscribers. His credentials include BS Evolutionary Biology- UNC-Charlotte and Doctoral- UNC. He makes numerous videos explaining and proving evolution, and often refuting creationist lies and pseudoscience. DonExodus2 used to be a Christian while defending evolution on YouTube; however, he eventually lost his faith and left the Christian religion. Sadly he has not made a video for over a year
 Debate with NephilimFree
Young Earth creationist and geocentrist NephilimFree challenged the atheist community to a debate. The criteria was that the user must have 1,000 subscribers (although he said in a later video that his original challenge was 2,000 subscribers in an attempt to exclude many eligible candidates for a debate) and the debate would be on evolution and creationism. He accused atheists of being unscientific and of denying his evidence for creationism. He then went on to accuse "evilutionists" of not allowing video responses and censoring dissenters (the irony here is that no "evilutionist" does this, as NephilimFree and his ilk screen every comment). Nephilim said the debate will be professional with no name-calling or insults (and yet afterward he calls people "chicken" and "coward") or ranting or loud shouts or any of the "behavior atheists are addicted to" (what about Shockofgod or Truthfulchristian?). He now presently requires the subscriber count to be equal or higher than his own, in order to give himself the advantage of offering challenges at will to anyone while filtering out most challenges issued to him.
In the summer of 2010, NephilimFree and YouTube rationalist DonExodus2 agreed to have a debate. NephilimFree, known to censor comments and block people, in this case censors himself. At first, Neph made it appear that no one had stepped forward to challenge him, making the atheist "evilutionists" look bad. Later in a series of videos, he explained the upcoming debate with DonExodus2, in which Neph gave permission for the debate to be on blogtv. However, Neph deleted the video and later said DonExodus2 was pressuring Neph to debate on blogtv instead of blogtalkradio. The original material was mirrored by user ozpoermo . In a early video, Neph did say he would challenge an atheist to a debate on skype, but he later denied deleted the video and denied saying it. The same video did not specify who the moderator would be.
Neph also agreed to debate on certain aspect of evolution that the two agreed upon, but later says he never once agreed to narrow the debate and demanded the debate topic to be "Evolution vs. Creation" so he can discuss the scientific and philosophical aspects of it.
As for the moderator, NephilimFree claimed DonExodus2 insisted the moderator to be an atheist, but a clip from a skype message on May 28, a week before Neph's acquisitions, shows that DonExodus2 was openly willing, even promoted, that the moderator could be Jezuzfreek777 (a theist). Neph said Jezuzfreek777 would be a fine moderator, so it is clear Neph later lied that Don insisted the moderator should be an atheist. Don did suggest Thunderf00t to be the moderator, but Neph declined because "Thunderf00t studders when he gets excited."
Nephilim invited shockofgod to be the moderator, so shock could record it on his radio show. Shockofgod said in a video a "large" group of a thousand people will show up, but a video shows a mere 250 people tuned in. However, due to Shock's history of rudeness, and inability to remain neutral in debates, Don suggested Dprjones to be the moderator, due to his experience and willingness to remain neutral. Neph refused to have dprjones be the moderator because he described him as "a guy who talks about human ejaculation and sexual practices in his videos." (A somewhat ironic accusation, considering Neph's visits towards escort sites.)
After such a hassle, NephilimFree made a video demanding DonExodus2 to make a video response to agree to debate Neph on his terms (on blogtalkradio, Shockofgod as moderator, creation vs. evolution topic, etc.) and have DonExodus post these terms on his channel at a specific time. When DonExodus2 did not respond, NephilimFree made a video proclaiming victory and calling DonExodus a chicken. The debate date was scheduled to be on June 6 at 4:00 PM. The truth is, NephilimFree was an hour late to his own debate. DonExodus2 was co-hosting a blogtv with the League of Reason with about 1,500 viewers prior to debate time, and when the time came for the debate with Nephilim they tuned in to blogtalkradio to watch, but Neph did not show. So Neph was lying the entire time about wanting to have a debate. It seems in a video by Shockofgod that the creationists seemed to know beforehand that they would back out and only meant to make the appearance that DonExodus2 would "miss out" to please their religious audience.  Shockofgod was called in several times before the debate time and was told that DonExodus was on blogtv at that time with 1,500 viewers, but Shock barely let the callers talk and made no attempt to steer his audience of 250 to go to the larger crowd.
In NephilimFree's absence, YouTube creationist Truthfulchristian stepped up to challenge the League of Reason.
Atheist YouTube user MikeLibertarian recorded the history of this challenge in a four-part series called "Nephilimgate." A user named shockofgod777 (who was probably not the real Shockofgod, left comments in the section of the first and last videos, stating that "You have 48 hours to remove this video or I'll be doing it for you. Jesus loves you." Despite these threats, MikeLibertarian never took down any of the videos, and they remain on Youtube to this day.

 Magic Sandwich
In response to creationist nonsense going viral through YouTube that atheists cannot disprove God, DonExodus2 took a Carl Sagan route. Sagan often said that anyone can disprove that he has a dragon in his garage, which stimulated several other similar scenarios created by other nonbelievers - such as the magical invisible leprechaun in a box.
In this case, DonExodus2 created the Magic Sandwich. DonExodus2 argued that his Magic Sandwich could cure cancer, and the sandwich fulfilled many prophesies from the ancient cookbook. However, the cook book predicted that many people would doubt the existence of the magic sandwich, and DonExodus2 satirically showed that those who deny its existence have no rational basis for their non-belief.
