Petrified Forests at Yellowstone Invalidate Long Ages

We know that for Darwin's speculations to have anything resembling plausibility, they require Mucho Grande amounts of time. Like evolutionists will finagle ways to convince people that they are right, often dealing from the bottom of the deck and finding other ways to cheat (or at least obfuscate), their pals in geology will also find ways to make Earth appear older than it was from the time of creation. One way to do this is to deny the Genesis Flood, which is a far better explanation of landforms and such than uniformitarianism (present processes are the key to the past). Views of origins and geology are forensic, attempting to reconstruct what happened way back when.

Petrified forests do not refute the Genesis Flood. Instead, they testify of it.

A story told to discredit the Genesis Flood is about how petrified trees, including the petrified forests at Yellowstone National Park, formed over long periods of time. (They don't tell us if woodpeckers are confused by these things.) However, the stories are just that: stories. The jaspers who tell those ignore inconvenient facts, and their icon of refutation is refuted by actual science. Petrification, like fossilization, requires the proper conditions, not great amounts of time. Indeed, the petrified forests at Yellowstone are examples of catastrophe. Namely, the same Flood that secularist storytellers try to reject. The following article includes a verified prediction by a creationary geologist.
Yellowstone National Park, the oldest national park in the United States, spans parts of three states: Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. It is famous for its geothermal activity, including 10,000 hot springs and 200 geysers, including ‘Old Faithful.’ There are also mountains, including one of black obsidian (volcanic glass), cooled and hardened basalt lava flows, deep valleys and canyons, rivers, lakes, forests, petrified wood (wood turned into rock), and wildlife.
Petrified forests?
In some places in Yellowstone Park, erosion of a hillside reveals layers of upright petrified trees. At Specimen Ridge, there are said to be 27 layers, while Specimen Creek contains about 50. This means that the Specimen Creek formation is especially huge—its total vertical height is 1,000 meters (3,400 feet). This raises the question: how did the petrified tree layers form?
