Does a Block Height depend entirely on the genesis block?

Block Height is the number of blocks preceding the genesis block(first block) on the blockchain. The block height is the number of blocks since the genesis. The block height will keep on increasing overtime. Roughly the block height seems to be a metric of time and for measuring distance.
