The Geological Time Scale in Relationship to The CCC Model

The CCC model proposes that the various geologic "Periods" are, in reality, different geographically limited ecosystems with characteristic forms of life. Ecosystems with these characteristic life-forms were all present at the completion of Creation Week. The extent of each characteristic ecosystem ("Period") must be determined by the geologic record. Through time, flora and fauna migrate, expand or diminish, change to new varieties within the restricted "kinds," and, in general, tend to expand the capacity of each local food chain. This ecologic succession through time as geologic events preserved them in the time frames of Creation Week, pre-Flood Curse events, the Flood, and post-Flood happenings were wrongly interpreted by Darwin and others as evidence for the Theory of Evolution.

Quaternary This ecosystem is most characterized by the following types of life: Man, most mammals, and flowering plants/grasses (angiosperms) in great profusion. It is the ecosystem wherein humans can thrive and characterizes what is Biblically called "[Garden of] Eden.” It now dominates the earth whereas in the early earth it was only one of various ecosystems. Today, it contains remnants of the earlier ecosystems in many life-forms termed "living fossils” because in old earth, evolutionary theories, they have remained the same for long ages. The CCC model explains their continued existence as survivors from other created ecosystems which in the early earth covered large areas.

Cretaceous This ecosystem is best known for the dinosaurs, the marine reptiles, and the flying reptiles. For most of the time, the dominant plant life consisted of cycads, conifers, ferns and other coarse herbage and succulent water vegetation that supplied food for reptiles.In the Cretaceous strata, there is a noticable change in vegetation from cycads, conifers, ferns, etc. to angiosperms. The CCC model interpretes this change of vegetation as an indication the surrounding "Cenozoic” ecosystem was expanding and beginning to invade the "Mesozoic” ecosystem. The result was a decline of the dinosaurs due to limited food supply and changing environmental conditions caused by geologic events of the pre-Flood Curse. Except for possible Ark representatives, the reptile pre-Flood world
may have been largely extinquished before the Genesis Flood Event.

The "Paleozoic” ecosystem consists of many "Periods.” Much Paleozoic strata is marine in origin. A large amount of the sea life characterized by this ecosystem is now extinct or thought to be extinct. The trilobites that especially characterize the "Cambrian” comprise one obvious example. All these life-forms were created during Creation Week, but some forms dominated the early earth and later died out or greatly diminished in the ecosystem as the food chain matured. Biblically,this is the result of life heeding God’s command to "fill the earth.” In the pre-Flood earth as the various ecosystems changed due to geologic events, pressure from surrounding ecosystems, and changes within the Genesis "kinds,” etc., the ecologic successions were preserved in the geologic record and interpreted as immense time periods by early geologists using uniformitarian theory.
Precambrian Eon Life-forms are relatively few and "simple” (algae, fungi, worms, etc.). Probably represents Creation Week/earliest post-Creation/Curse events.
