Oxygen atmosphere dated a little bit earlier

Postby Brian Jordan » Sun Sep 07, 2014 9:33 am

Timescales have been put back a little bit earlier by evidence that oxygen-releasing organisms were around about 60 million years earlier than thought. Perhaps not a startling, discovery, but it does make it that tiny bit more difficult to accept that everything began just 6000 years ago. Well, about half a percent more difficult than it already was.
