Relative geological times for events in Earth’s history are presented in relation to times of other geological events.
Specific geological ages, which can be referred to as absolute times versus relative times, are determined conventionally by radiometric methods.
Our attention here is focused on the characterization of geological time that encompasses the evolutionary sequence of the material geological environment, or more accurately, the stratigraphic divisions.
We call time geological due to specifics regarding the fixation of geological events over billions of years.
This is an unusual conclusion that is difficult to accept using common sense.
However, if we follow through with this logic and extend the growth rate over Earth’s entire geological history, then present day Earth with a radius of 6371 km could have been formed in 4.6 billion years.
Stratigraphic divisions are associated with certain development stages, and then they disappear as they are replaced by other divisions i.e., basically they represent time categories that form the geological history.
