“I think your comparison with the Indian sub-continent is a faulty one since there is clear evidence off shore of how, when and where India was moving. Something we have not seen in the Atlantic other then within the already shown hundreds of millions of years timeline for the geology of Greenland.
Even if you could show the movement of India was relational to Greenland, you'd still have to show that humans were around and formed societies and a tool using culture. “
I understand what you are saying, but that is part of what we had already discussed here (since this is a “no time” experiment). Sorry, i cannot leave this “timeless” experiment, otherwise everything falls apart. It only functions when the “current” time scale does not tell when events did happen. You really think that in the eventuality of such an event ever happened, you would be able to conclude that it did, only by regular observation of what surrounds us?
Millions of years could really mean a few minutes or hours. Nobody was actually there to check it, correct? I do not mean to say that it (time scale) is incorrect, but rather that it could be wrong...
Is it not possible for geological time scale to be wrong? Are you absolutely sure dating is correct?
Many scientists claim that there should not be a term like “absolute dating”, since nothing is absolute...
