Template talk:Phanerozoic eon

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Presently, the template stands thus:

542 Ma - Phanerozoic eon - Present
Preceded by Proterozoic eon 542 Ma - Paleozoic era - 251 Ma 251 Ma - Mesozoic era - 65 Ma 65 Ma - Cenozoic era - Present
Cambrian Ordovician Silurian Devonian Carboniferous Permian Triassic Jurassic Cretaceous Paleogene Neogene Quaternary

But wouldn't it be better (more logical) as follows?

Preceded by Proterozoic eon 542 Ma - Phanerozoic eon - Present
542 Ma - Paleozoic era - 251 Ma 251 Ma - Mesozoic era - 65 Ma 65 Ma - Cenozoic era - Present
Cambrian Ordovician Silurian Devonian Carboniferous Permian Triassic Jurassic Cretaceous Paleogene Neogene Quaternary

So you won't think the Proterozoic precedes the Cambrian but is still somehow part of the Phanerozoic. --Gro-Tsen (talk) 20:20, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

So, does anyone object to my making this change? --Gro-Tsen (talk) 00:13, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
Good suggestion. Go right ahead. »S0CO(talk|contribs) 17:29, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Quaternary, Pre-Cambrian & Tertiary[edit]

4500 Ma - Phanerozoic eon - Present
4500 Ma - Paleozoic era - 251 Ma 251 Ma - Mesozoic era - 65 Ma 65 Ma - Cenozoic era - Present
Pre-Cambrian Cambrian Ordovician Silurian Devonian Carboniferous Permian Triassic Jurassic Cretaceous Tertiary Quaternary

Would this be better? This is like the Proterozoic eon, the Archean eon & the Hadean eon are just in one period in an eon. & the whole of the Tectonic plate movements is the Phanerozoic eon! Talker26 (talkcontribs) 02:47, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Uh, this makes the Precambrian appear as part of the Phanerozoic eon, which it is not. The Precambrian refers to anything before the Phanerozoic. Am I confused, or are you? --Gro-Tsen (talk) 00:04, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
