Anyone can spam links. You can't even post the gist of the matter regarding the issues here in a short concise way. If you could I would beat it to chaff in a New York minute anyhow. So I get why you beat around the bush pretending you could do wonders here. I know better.
As for the tree ring business I hope you get the point by now that everything in a dead or living tree depends on what nature it grew. Period.
You did not know what to look for in finding tree rings or anything else that might pre date our nature. Don't pretend you found nothing, you looked for nothing. Tree rings still formed whatever nature they grew in. It just happens that in the present state rings take a certain time to grow.
As for pretending there is some great point buried in other threads that you could not have summarized here, let's be honest.
