Is Zero an Even Number?

This might get filed on your list of questions you never knew existed, but it turns out it’s actually a well discussed question that’s been asked online since 1997. Quora has an article about it here and it looks like all sources point to the same answer (at least online). 

But having the same answer or even having the answer can often deprive someone of the valuable insight that comes from exploring the question.  Is Zero Even?  Those of you who’ve been regularly trolling the archives of this blog will remember finding that I’ve enjoyed the concept of Zero so much that I read a book about it back in 2016.

Since I find that the exploration of this question is so much fun and we’re not in person to have the conversation together, I’d like to supply a Numberphile video to help you through the thinking process.
