Eras, Periods and Epochs

The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

(Genesis 8:2) KJV

The geological timescale is split into four eras. These are marked by obvious transitions between sequences in sedimentary formations. The Precambrian is different to everything above it, for example.

  • Eras are subdivided into periods. This is an arbitrary designation which is necessary because of the grossly inflated timescale necessary for biological evolution.
  • Periods are divided into epochs. In general each period is a habitat or ecosystem. This is also arbitrary, based entirely on the needs of THE NARRATIVE.
  • Epochs become more frequent the closer we get to present day. Each one of them is the preserved remains of a habitat or ecosystem.

The geological timescale, constructed through hundreds of years of peer reviewed scholarship, is a giant pile of inductive reductive circular reasoning. It’s a rationalization of evidence to fit THE NARRATIVE of evolution from primitive to advanced.

from Wilson N. Stewart – Paleobotany and the evolution of plants.

Since most of the periods and epochs were deposited in Noah’s flood, exceptions to this being sediments deposited during Peleg’s tectonics, it’s not necessary to make a difference between periods and epochs.
