If Time since the emergence of flowering plants (125 million y) was a standard unit ...

  • Time since the emergence of earliest reptiles (315 million y)...more would be 2.5 x Time since the emergence of flowering plants
  • Time since the end of the Permian geologic period (252 million y)...more would be 2 x Time since the emergence of flowering plants
  • Length of one Alautun, longest unit in Mayan calendar (63.1 million y)...more would be 1/2 of Time since the emergence of flowering plants
  • Time since the first modern humans (250,000 y)...more would be 1/500 of Time since the emergence of flowering plants
  • Time since first humans in Australia (50,000 y)...more would be 1/2500 of Time since the emergence of flowering plants
