I first saw Marc Defant on this episode of the Joe Rogan podcast debating Graham Hancock and Randall Carlson. I didn't think he had enough time to make his points, so I wanted to bring him on. We talk Gobekli Tepe, Graham Hancock, Egypt, comets, social justice warriors, biology, science and why he thinks there's no intelligent life in our galaxy other than us.
Dr. Marc J. Defant is a professor of geology/geochemistry at the University of South Florida. Before he became involved in research related to the misuse or misunderstanding of science by society, he specialized in the study of volcanoes — more specifically, the geochemistry of volcanic rocks, the associated processes within the mantle, and the origin of the continental crust. He has been funded by the National Science Foundation, National Geographic, the American Chemical Society, and the National Academy of Sciences, and has published in many internationally renowned scientific journals including Nature.
He has written a book entitled Voyage of Discovery: From the Big Bang to the Ice Age and published several articles for general readership magazines such as Skeptic and Popular Science and appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
