This also means that there was absolutely NO world wide flood (WWF) during those 10,434 years, as there would be no possible overlap of tree ring chronologies if there were some point at which ALL were dead.
Why would they all be dead if they were covered with water they don't have the breath of life in them? Just wondering.
With the type of a flood that YEC'S talk about yea they would be in the coal beds.
