PBS Eons : Just a note of thanks to Dr. Joe Hanson of It's Okay To Be Smart (, who first told me about the CPE and said we should do an episode about it. Thanks Joe! (BdeP)

Cities & Skyscrapers : When the whole world is Ireland

Bob Didlboc : That sounds amazingly relaxing and peaceful.... besides flooding of course.

Galo Arizaga : I'm in South Florida dude its been raining nonstop for 3 weeks going on 4 I feel like I'm living in this video

Jammy Jam : In the UK, we call this ... Summer :/

LEGOSAURUS : Wow, I learned so much! I'm glad to see that something like this is trending! :D Yay for earth sciences!

The JurassicMan : I actually like that abandoned name

Videoscord : It can evaporate from hitting the Earth. If the surface is hot enough, rain falls and almost instantly evaporates, sending the moisture back into the atmosphere for the whole cycle to repeat. This could happen for millions of years until the Earth's surface cooled enough for pools of water to collect on the surface.

6969 subscribers with no videos challenge : That time? Oh yeah i remember that...

DebbyAbqNM : Fascinating! What caused the volcanoes to build/grow and erupt at what turned out to be the right time? What was the Sun doing then (if it is possible to know)?

Sythicol : Amazing

xx ARMY OF ME x one : So if it rained for so long because the world got hotter, speeding up the water cycle, ect.... Because of global warming, pollution, and the enhanced greenhouse effect that is caused by us, could it mean that in a million years or so, this long rainy period will occur again?? Just a thought

StardustMelange : Great channel!

Wyatt King : I live in Utah. Thats cool to realize how much water we received. Explains the incredible diversity in our landscape throughout the state.

Kevin Rush : So, a worldwide flood. Hmmmm

modolief : Hey: I just want to say about the "Eons" intro piece (the intro music or whatever we call the thing, today at 0:55) -- totally classy. You keep changing it up, *and it's short* -- I get so bored by long and repetitive branding opportunities. Extremely well done, thanks.

ProperGoodDishcloth : 1000+ triggered Christians who believe the world is only a few thousand years old....

Kris Bochenek : It is very interesting that informative channels such as this one shows only over 330K subscribers but bunch of idiots jumping around like Rhesus monkey get millions of them.

Orchidomania : Super cool! Could watch this for hours 😊👍👍👍

VINTAGE ELEMENTZ ONLINE : I refuse to believe you know all this yet you have no clue about the vast majority of the bottom of the ocean? How could you possibly know how a 200 million year old lizard lived but cant tell me what's on the darkside of the moon?

Megavicid : Atheists just use biblical references and make them Millions of years ago

Zairo : How on earth can people now study and know this thing?

Caleb : Does Earth ever not have rain?

Nexus : Fascinating and you’re a joy to watch, thank you! Subbed 😊👍

T C : Wait. So plants and such can scrub millions of years of extreme CO2 out of the air and we're worried? Global temp hasn't even risen 1 degree meanwhile the earth fixed a 10 degree difference. Why are we worried about global warming again?

Aislinn Graves : I really love learning about these lesser known ( to the layman) parts of history and how they shaped our world. :D

Han Myohset : I'm a geologist and I never knew this hypothesis. This helps me explain why the dinosaurs ruled the earth

Oliver Von arx : Another great and informative video, mate. Thanks!! 👍

King Crowder : Uhmmm, it definitely rained for 40 days and 40 nights and flooded the whole world, idk about 2 million years... they say evolution is easier to believe... but is it easier to believe that it rained for 2 million years, or 40 days and 40 nights?

FAT JAXSON : When scientists research or discover stuff like. "It rained for 2 million years" or "these Dinosaurs were crocodile like" these are just educated theories right or do they believe it as 100% fact?

Game Head : It never stopped raining in Ireland

LePequod : Your videos are so awesome!! It would be fantastic if you could give us some episodes about the evolution of humans, with aspects like human skull morphology, diet, adaptative features, social habits etc.. :D thanks alot!!!
