Having references is nice and all but 14 for a single paragraph strikes me as a bit excessive. --Sulgran 04:36, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

Name

It appears from some searching that "Precambrian" (one word) is the normal version of the name. Any objections to renaming the article that? Philip J. Rayment 11:35, 9 August 2007 (EDT)

Nope. Please create a redirect page from "Pre-Cambrian" to "Precambrian" though, as both are potential searches for the topic. ΨtrykeЯ eh?> 11:38, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
Rename done. Pre-Cambrian already existed as a redirect to this, but I did update it. Philip J. Rayment 08:01, 10 August 2007 (EDT)

"According to evolutionary scientists..."

This is a geological term. The theory of evolution has nothing to say about geology. BrentH 21:30, 26 August 2011 (EDT)

Geological timescale. Meaning, a period of time determined by the layering of certain sediments that dates when certain species existed (and whatnot). ~ JonG ~ 21:32, 26 August 2011 (EDT)
We can use the timescale to do a lot of things, one of which is to trace the existence of species. But that has nothing to do with the theory of evolution, because it makes no attempt to say anything about how those species got there. It's about rocks, which everyone agrees don't evolve.
