And I said later that it is not NOW sea floor because it sank after the strata of the geological column were in place, and the strata on the sea floors now are not the geological column.

Well you’re wrong about all of that.

Obviously it is sea floor because the Gulf of Mexico is a sea. Nothing else is needed.

Obviously the strata are part of the geological column because they exist.

And, for, your information the rifting that formed the Gulf of Mexico started in the late Triassic, so obviously even the Jurassic strata are later than that.

But since those in the Gulf do seem to be the same strata I supposed that they had formed on the land and that the Gulf itself formed after they were all laid down, which seems to be the case with a lot of phenomena.

Since the evidence shows that many strata did not form on land that is a rather poor piece of reasoning. And there is a big difference between something seeming to be the case and you desperately wanting it to be the case, no matter what the evidence shows.

In that sense it is not part of the oceans, even though now it might be right to call it a sea or part of the oceans.

It is obviously right to call it a sea since it is a large expanse of salt water connected to the ocean. Your weird ideas about the origins of the strata underneath it are completely irrelevant.
