Paleocene

August 21

For the king had merchant ships at sea with the fleet of Hiram. Once every three years the merchant ships came bringing gold, silver, ivory, apes, and monkeys.

(1 Kings 10:22) KJV

The Paleocene is an ecosystem which has been destroyed, transported and buried in sediment during a world-wide flood.

The Paleogene begins the Tertiary which means third. It’s obvious that the stratigraphic column, Cambrian through Tertiary, was deposited in three stages, the deluge, inundation and subsidence.

– The timeline of Noah’s Flood. Each stage corresponds to an Era in the geologic timescale.

The Tertiary has been split into 5 Epochs by our guide, Wilson N. Stewart, in Paleobotany and the evolution of plants. Suffice it to say that it’s the fudging and massaging needed to fit the physical evidence into the evolution narrative.

Paleobotany and the evolution of plants

We’re studying the periods of geological history as described by Wilson N. Stewart.

This was the text book we used in grad school when we studied for a masters of science in Biology.

The description of each Epoch is either a description of an ecosystem or a note about a tectonic event that would be necessary to explain the distribution of the fossil material.

PALEOCENE
Trend from temperate climates to subtropical. Some seasonal variations.
Continued inundation of embayments and synclines. Angiosperms having affinities with Magnoliaceae, Lauraceae, Juglandaceae. Floras having more in common with Upper Cretaceous than modern ones. First lemurs; some modern groups of birds.
