Introduction to: The Expeditioner's Discovery Guild
(Author: Destin Bogart)
Here at the Expeditioner’s Discovery Guild, we look at the living world around us and bring to you our findings and hypothesis for your criticism. This website, although about the life sciences, will strive to cover the sciences of Biology, Botany, Zoology, Geology, Mineralogy, Paleontology, Cryptozoology, Xenobiology, Astrobiology, and Speculative Evolution.
If you are wondering what these sciences are than it is best we explain: Biology is the study of living things and encompasses many different sciences, Botany falls under Biology alongside Zoology with Botany being the study of plant-life and Zoology being the Study of animals. Geology is another large encompassing science that explains the earth and its processes; Paleontology and Mineralogy fall under this category. Paleontology is the study of ancient organisms and Mineralogy is the study of crystals and minerals. These are the known and solid sciences; however, we here at the Guild have an interest in some other, more loose sciences. Cryptozoology is the study for unknown organisms, more commonly known as Cryptids; like Bigfoot, The Loch Ness Monster, and the Chupacabra. Cryptozoology gets a bad reputation due to the large amount of amateur “monster hunter” types that make a name for the science. Astrobiology, Xenobiology, and Speculative Evolution are all fictitious flights-of-fancy and serve only to help people understand the mechanisms of Evolution as well as an entertaining look into what could be. Astrobiology is the search for extraterrestrial life, Xenobiology is the study of extraterrestrial organisms and is entirely fiction just like Speculative Evolution, which basically takes an event, or situation in which evolution could occur differently than how it has and then imagine organisms along this separate timeline. This group will focus mainly on the solid sciences and will occasionally delve into these fictitious sciences to prove, disprove, and approve.
Our team here at the Expeditioner’s Discovery Guild will continue to bring to you only the most accurate and scientifically acceptable information and speculations that can be created. Over the timespan of this project you will learn through videos, presentations, talk-seminars, and info videos about the earth, its composition, the life that lived and still lives on it and speculations on the future of Earth and other life carrying bodies in the universe. As of now our crew consists of Destin Bogart, Brandon Ahrens, Sergio Treviso, and David lichliter. Together we will bring to you the very latest in scientific literature in as entertaining a light as we are capable of. We would like to have new videos for you every week Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Thank you for viewing; The Expeditioner’s Discovery Guild!
