Yes, I understand that. How do we know that the worlds current weather wasnt or isnt a repeating weather pattern? For example: what if during the Jurassic period of the dinosaurs this was the weather pattern (our current weather), but due to the E.L.E this information isnt attainable. Observations in natures weather patterns would be skewed by such a catastrophic event.
