Topic: Derek Yoost – DEEP TIME
“Deep Time” is the concept of geologic time. The philosophical concept of deep time was developed in the 18th century by Scottish geologist James Hutton (1726 - 1797). His "system of the habitable Earth" was a deistic mechanism keeping the world eternally suitable for humans. The modern concept of “Deep Time” shows huge changes over the age of the Earth which has been determined to be, after a long and complex history of developments, around 4.55 billion years. Derek will be exploring and discussing this concept and looking into the less often
discussed Pre-history of Earth in its formative years up to 4 billion or so years ago. Various geologic scales and perspectives will be discussed in this
presentation. Please join us for this intriguing topic — a NOT to be missed presentation.
