The Pliocene was a geological time period which, according to evolutionists and Old Earth Creationists, occurred approximately 5 million to 2 million years ago.[1] Evolutionists believe that Hominids evolved throughout this epoch and by the end of the Pliocene, Homo habilus first appeared. They further believe that at the end of the Pliocene was also marked by the beginning of the Pleistocene ice ages.[1] Evolutionists speculate that Sabre toothed cats first appeared in the Pliocene around 2.5 million years ago.
