Completely Arbitrary
This is nothing more than mental self loving. If the Bible said that there were 9 days you would claim that there were 9 eras. If the Bible said that there were 4 days you would claim that there are 4 eras. You are arbitrarily dividing up time to fit your preconceived conclusions.

What is stopping me from claiming that there are 20 eras?

Re: Selective learning
It is true that the classification of the events are subjective.

That shoots a hole in your argument. The eras you are speaking of can be any number you choose.

Re: Selective learning
The focus is on events, which are marked in the rocks in seven places.

There are more than 7 events marked in the rocks. If the Bible said that there were 12 creation days you would claim that there are 12 events marked in the geologic record. We can all see what is going on here.

You could just as easily divide it up into 13 sections: Hadean, Archean, Proterozoic, Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, Carboniferous, Permian, Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, Paleogene, and Neogene. Each of these sections can be further divided up. You are just picking the number 7 because that is the number you want. There is no objective reason why geologic history should be divided up into 7 sections and no other number of sections.

Re: Selective learning
Genesis and geology are referring to major events.

And you are arbitrarily deciding what those events are so that you arrive at the answer you wanted to start with.

Seven (7) Major historically events are those which also compare one-to-one with the events of the history of the cosmic unfolding in Genesis to which we are referring in this thread.

There are 13 major events, as I showed earlier. Therefore, Genesis does not align with the geologic history.

Edited by Taq, : No reason given.

Re: Selective learning
Name five or six that I am ignoring if you can.

Take your pick from any on of these 50 or so divisions:

and the Cryptic morning of the Hadean Era/ = First Day

You have 4 days right there: Early Imbrian, Nectarian, "Ryderian", and Cryptic.

And the pattern continues with the other "days".

The scientific grouping of these parts to the "day" is sub-divided into parts, like the dawn, morning, afternoon, and evening.

Ahh, so when there are more divisions than you want you lump them together in order to get the answer you want.

Arbitrary much?
