Well the entire "molecular clock" notion is always going to be merely supplemental to real fossils, and real geology.
I am either amused, or irritated (depending on the weather = fishing conditions) when people treat these genetic "ages" as if they were real.
To quote Lewis Black to creationists,
"We have the fossils!"
Here is another fun one;
"Science is the horse that pulls the cart of philosophy."
