Throughout its 4.5 billion year history, the geology of the Earth has created an environment that allows life to thrive or causes it to die.

As a prerequisite to this musing, I urge you to study the Geologic Time Scale posted below. In particular, note the expansion of the vertical scale from left to right and the Holocene Epoch (Recent) beginning 10,000 years ago. The Holocene marks the beginnings of modern man and the spread of human civilizations. Our presence on Earth is merely an instant in geological time.

For those interested, I explored the concept of geological time in a previous musing called “The Fourth Dimension” (Mercenary Musing, April 28, 2008).
