Biblical genesis most likely of Ordovician age

One of the reasons why Agesearch is still alpha is that it sometimes returns false positives e.g. when stratigraphic terms are ambiguous such as 'Canadian'.
I am testing this by feeding Agesearch with terms which should have no chronostratigraphic context, such as 'beer' or 'pizza' etc.

After it surprisingly turned out that beer does have a stratigraphic context, I formulated some more provocative queries.
The definetely funniest result was Ordovician as the best stratigraphic context for the query 'bible genesis'.

Ha! in stratigraphic terms this would indeed be a good compromise between the creationists and scientists point of view ;).
