About Marc Young

My name is Marc Young, I am 29 years old and I'm studying a double bachelor of archaeology and science in South Australia, with plans for a PhD, hopefully studying the Younger Dryas in Mongolia. When I was young, I dreamed of becoming a palaeontologist or archaeologist, but abandoned that dream for various reasons. After a stint of unemployment following a workplace injury, I stumbled upon the Joe Rogan Podcast episode with Graham and Randall Carlson, and after watching all of their other episodes, was inspired to enroll in university to study these subjects. The podcasts changed my life, and I owe a debt of gratitude to both Graham and Randall.

Since 2018 I have been working with George Howard and other scientists studying the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis to compile a complete bibliography of all scientific papers pertaining to the impact. My areas of interest include human evolution/palaeoanthropology, mega-flooding, cosmic impacts, and epistemology. The essay was written for my History of Archaeological Thought class after a discussion earlier in the year about the difference between fringe archaeology and pseudoarchaeology.
