Young Earth Today – EP 2024 (Total Solar Eclipse)

Welcome to Young Earth Today, Episode 2024:

I’m your host Jay Hall, former Math Professor at Howard College.

No, we don’t have two thousand episodes yet … we named this episode 2024 in honor of the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse (TSE).  This reminds us of the fantastic film (and book), The Privileged Planet.  What are the odds that the apparent size of the Moon and the apparent size of the Sun, exactly match?!  Things that make you go “hmmm …”

Oh, BTW, we are joined today by my good friend Dr. Joseph Young (☺☺).  Let me tell you, he’s Mighty smart!  The TSE will pass the SE corner of Oklahoma.  If you plan to see the Total Solar Eclipse, I would recommend staying in Paris, Texas which has a 65′ replica of the Eiffel Tower with a red cowboy hat atop, or Hugo, OK which I’ve been to numerous times or beautiful Hochatown in Eastern OK where we stayed at a wonderful resort a couple years ago – I got a “Vote for Squatch” shirt.  Hold the phones folks … I do get my kicks on Route 66 – I drive on it every week.

I’m now in OKC and I’m looking for speaking opportunities on the topic of Biological Essentialism, the title of my latest book.  This groundbreaking work has hundreds of graphics and notes.  Just search “biological essentialism jay hall” on the Barnes&Noble site.  Your positive review on B&N is greatly appreciated.  For more info give me a holler if you’d like me to speak to your group.

Be sure to visit our site early and often (note the “blog” link at the top):
