Earth's history in 24 hours... dinosaurs at 22:46 PM, Homo sapiens 3.1 sec before midnight



Good day!
I was just wondering how exactly could be our planet's history correctly shown 
on a 24 hour scale (just as M. Whitfield's own model). So these are the values 
given that 00:00 hrs is equal to 4.600.000.000 yrs ago and 24:00 is equal to 
present time. Shown as hours:minutes(:seconds) after the midnight. Values for 
phanerozoic eras from Gradstein, 2004:

Life on Earth (app. 3.8 Ga)  4:10 AM

Eucaryots (app. 2.1 Ga)  13:02 PM

Metazoans (1.2 Ga?)  17:44 PM

Nah, this shrinks one's ego ;o( Do we have a right to call ourselves "masters 
of nature"? Was just curious... Any comments appreciated.
