However, when the interpretation of scientific data contradicts the true history of the world as revealed in the Bible, then it’s the interpretation of the data that is at fault.It’s important to remember that we have limited data, and new discoveries have often overturned previous ‘hard facts’.His belief that these narrowest tree rings may have coincided with comet activity, rather than volcanic eruptions, led him into controversy.But he also came to accept that such variously gathered samples of Irish oaks were not reliable material for reconstructing precise temperature and rainfall records.Bought as a prostrate tree in a garden centre pot, it has since built the base of a dark tower, several metres across and head high.At its heart, where blackbirds hide, an inaccessible briar has sprung up to crown the canopy with thorns.Galvin’s work established the long-lived yew as a reliable barometer of environmental change.
As a tree physiologist I would say that evidence of false rings in surely counts much more strongly against such the notion. Considering that the immediate post-Flood world would have been wetter with less contrasting seasons until the Ice Age waned (see Q&A: Ice Age), many extra growth rings would have been produced in the Bristlecone pines (even though extra rings are not produced today because of the seasonal extremes).
The largest and probably oldest known tree in Ireland is at Ballyrankin, Co Wexford, with a girth of 7.64m, found by the hunter of Ireland’s champion trees, Aubrey Fennell (Perrin TCD thesis 7341).
