Geologic Time Scale From a Creationist Perspective

The evolutionary geologic time scale

Both Creationists and Evolutionists believe in biological speciation. However Creationists believe that speciation occurred from kinds which were formed originally by the Creator.  Creationists also believe that our present species descend from those pairs who survived the great Flood. Young earth creationists believe that speciation can take place rapidly and all our modern day species plus many extinct species descended from the kinds in the Ark or those marine kinds that survived the upheaval of the Flood.

Many Creationists believe that the extinctions of the Permian period in which 90 % of marine and 70% of animal life became extinct was due to the Great Flood of Noah. Many Creationists hold that the Great Flood occurred about 4,350-4,450 years ago not 245 million years ago proposed by the Evolutionists for the Permian. Other people believe the Great Flood occurred at an earlier date around 4700-5000 years ago. I hold that the Flood probably occurred around 2404 BC. I hold that the separation of Pangaea (which like some scientists I believe was circular) and the formation of continents occurred rapidly during the catastrophe of the Tower of Babel at the end of the Triassic and beginning of the Jurassic-Cretaceous-Paleocene-Eocene period (they are four layers of the cataclysmic events of 1960 BC).  The so-called Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary and the Eocene–Oligocene extinction event  which were synonymous was the time of the catastrophes of the time of Abraham and destruction of Sodom around 3,950 years ago and the end of most of the dinosaur kinds. However the so-called Paleocene and Eocene periods may have been synonymous with the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods being deposits caused by the cataclysm of the the time of Abraham and Sodom. This was also a time of rapid speciation by mammals.

I also propose that around 3,760 years ago there was a nuclear winter in the days of Joseph that ushered in the Ice Age during the time Evolutionists call the Pleistocene. At the end of the Pleistocene were the events of the Exodus around 3,350 years ago which began the so-called Holocene period rather than 11,000 years ago claimed by the Evolutionists. In the Triassic Period the climate was mostly hot and dry which dried up the earth after the great flood and during the Jurassic-Cretaceous-Paleocene-Eocene period the climate became warm and humid with the growth of tropical jungles. After the cataclysmic events around 1960 BC the weather became a lot cooler (Oligocene) but then warming up in what is called the Miocene and then cooling again in the Pliocene before the events around 1766 BC that led to the Ice Age. The Ice Age lasted about 200 years not the thousands taught by Evolutionists.

Creationists have differing opinions about what part of the geologic deposits are a result of the worldwide Flood and what the boundary is between the Flood and post-flood period.  Many of them see the death of the dinosaurs as occurring with the worldwide Flood and thus see the Triassic and Jurassic periods as part of the Flood of Noah deposits. I however think that the reptilian dinosaur ancestors were brought on the Ark and they possibly attained their great heights due to human manipulation of the genes by the civilisation of Cainan and Nimrod in the late Triassic period. Most of the Dinosaurs but not all were killed by the events 1960 BC. The destruction that left these geologic layers was due to a Nuclear War which destroyed Uruk (Mt Augustus), Sodom and Gomorrah and formed craters such as the Chicxulub, Chesapeake Bay and the Popigai craters which triggered further natural environmental destructions and led to a cooler period in earth history.

Note: While I am not convinced of a Darwinian evolutionary understanding of science I do not believe that those who do hold evolutionary views can't be just as devout Catholics or Christians. Nor do I think God couldn't have used a evolutionary method for creation, I just don't believe he did. I am opposed to fanaticism on both sides of the issue and believe one shouldn't lose their sense of humour.  That being said I know I am a Divine creation and those who disagree with me are definitely descended from ape-like creatures!!!!
