Do the 'geological time scale/column' and the Bible match/agree with each other? Or do they conflict and one or the other is (or both are) wrong? (I mean the general sequence of periods, ignoring the ascribed dates/durations which are questioned by some scholars/scientists/creationists.)
First here is a compiled version of the Geological Time Scale which i have compiled from a number of different sources. (Note: The Precambrian periods are a little bit uncertain since there are some  differences in different sources.) You can also see another more clear version of the general eras/periods/epochs layout here .

(Cosmologic? Primordial?)
* Precambrian/Laurentian/Cryptozoic
(algae, worms, bacteria, trilobites, arthropods, microorganisms, coal)
(Paleo-Laurentian? Chaotian, Prenectarian, Cryptic, Basin)
(Zirconian, Nectarian, Early Imbrian) (water, coal, crystalline)
(primeval ocean, rain drops, hot winds, sea sediments?)
(Pongolan, Rayner orogeny, Insell orogeny, photosynthesis)
(cells/life, chemicals, Keewatin lava/sedimentary? Timiskaming?)
(metamorphised sedimentary, granite, algae, invertebrates)
(Algonkian? Keweenawan? Cadomian)
(Huronian, Tonian, Cryogenian, Ediacaran, Dorchester pot)
(biota, algae, microorganisms, oxygen-rich)
(orogenies, metamorphic, Taconic, Rodinia/Columbia)
* Phanerozoic
* Palaeozoic/Primary / old fold mountains
(invrtebrates, fish, amphibians)
* Upper Paleozoic / invertebrates (Caledonian, trilobites, graptolites)
(marine vertebrates, slallow seas, marine life, trilobites, brachipods)
(explosion, algae, aquatic invertebrates, microorganisms, fungi, spores)
(like land plants, reef, giant, orogenies, sea flooded continents)
(metamorphosed rocks, human footprint with trilobites in it)
(ice age, Taconian, Caledonian, limestone, shallow seas)
(marine invertebrates, fish, land plants, fish-like, vertebrates)
(corals, seas submerged / waters spilled over, Taconian, ash, ice)
(land plants, cephalopods, trilobites, fish, land animals, arthropods)
(marine plants, Caledonian, ash, lava, overthrust, coral)
(Upper Paleolithic tools made of Silurian material)
* Lower Paleozoic (fish, fern)
(Old Red Sandstone, Acadian)
(land plants, trees, brachiopods, fish, sharks, insects, amphibians)
(arthropods, terrestrial vertebrates, tree-like, clubmoss, ferns)
(trees, corals, igneous, granite, Euramerica landbridge, land plants)
* Amphibians
(seas invaded land, volcanoes, glaciation, land animals, marine life)
Lower Carboniferous / Mississippian
(land plants, crinoids, sharks, fish, land animals, insects, glaciation)
UpperCarboniferous / Pennsylvanian
(warm, Hercynian/Armorican, ferns, cockroaches, reptiles)
(high oxygen, humanoid tracks in sandstone / sandy beach)
(ice age, coal, ferns, confiers, trilobites)
(amphibians, reptiles, mammals, insects, evergreens)
(cone-bearing, shallow reefs, Pangaea)
Permian-Triassic extinction event
* young fold mountains
* Mesozoic/Secondary/Reptiles
(vegetarian, warm, pine/palm)
(gymnosperms, cycads, birds, ammonites, sea-urchins)
(Rhaetian, dinosaurs, mammal-like, mammals)
(present-day type insects, modern corals)
(Lias, Oolite, Oxford Clay, Nevadan)
(cycads, mammals, birds, archaeopterix, angiosperms)
(Laurasia & Gondwana, carbon dioxide, no seasons)
(Cenomanian, Turonian, Laramide)
(worldwide break/upheaval/catastrophe, four rivers in Palestine)
(mammals, dinosaurs, snakes)
(human & dinosaur footprints in same bed/strata)
(breakup of Godwana, London artefact iron hammer, Moab Man)
(fossil leaves indistinguishable from present-day flowering plants)
* Cenozoic/Mammals/sedimentary
(birds, plants, new era, Himalayas, Rockies, Andes, cold-warm-glacial)
* Tertiary (deciduous, pluvial)
* Palaeogene (nummulitic)
Palaeocene (impact, extinction event, tropical, diversify)
Eocene (Alpine, horses, warming-cooling, Himalayas, Antarctic ice)
(mastodons, monkeys, apes, seasons)
(extinction, Antarctic glaciation, diversification)
* Neogene
(Alpine, dogs, horses, apes)
(lowering carbondioxide, warmer, disruption/extinctions)
(saline lakes, moderate icehouse climate, ice ages, Antarctic ice)
(Alpine, apemen, Greenland ice, cooling, flooding of Meidterranean)
(Calveras man)
* Quarternary/Anthropocene/Anthropolithic/Posttertiary (cultivated)
(Gelasian, Calabrian, Eemian, Dryas, Toba)
(Gunz, Mindel, Riss, Wurm) (megafauna, megafauna extinction)
(Preboreal/warmer, Boreal/arid, Atlantic/warm, Climatic Optimum)
(Subboreal, Klimasturz, Subatlantic)
(Neolithic, Doggerland, Sundaland, Sahara, Little Ice Age).

NZ's mandatory fluoridation is not fair because it only forces it on the disadvantaged/some and not on the advantaged/everyone.

So far it is very tentatively provisionally looking like the Cenozoic/Cainozoic "new era" might match post-Flood in biblical. Reasons for this tentative opinion include:

- "No seasons" in Jurassic & "seasons" in Oligocene means seasons presumably appeared somewhere between these two periods around about the same time as the end of the Mesozoic and start of Cenozoic.
This could match the mention of "summer and winter, hot and cold" at end of flood in Genesis 8:22 (implying there was an axis tilt during flood)? (No earlier mention of seasons in bible before then except Genesis 1:14.)
(Though of course i can't be sure that this is not wrong because i don't know if seasons are mentioned in any other periods of geological timescale. But if there were not seasons before then then it can't be claimed that it doesn't/can't match the biblical unless the bible is wrong because the biblical seems clear there were no seasons before flood.)

I'm not going to list other evidences because i have just recently had a stuck-up geologist try to make out I am just an all wrong dumb dog and they are all right god. All stark evidences i gave for Atlantis/Tiahuanaco, Andes uplifted within human times, etc they find dirty rotten ways to falsely trash and falsely make me look/seem/feel dumb, and unfortunately it is not easy to beat them (even though i have stark matches evidences). You can see some of my recent articles which they trashed here , plus the Atlantis Location thread/topic in this forum.
