The Real Story of the Petrified Forest

When I was in town yesterday for supplies, I bumped into Lotta Lyez and Al Buehterawl from the Darwin Ranch. Al was excited about a trip to Arizona, since the foreman Rusty Swingset allowed him extra time to visit Petrified Forest National Park. Al said it was breathtaking.

He started to tell about its features, but Lotta cut him off to repeat what he told her earlier. It was the same thing in many ways that we hear from deep time proponents about gradual processes interspersed with volcanic activity. The truth is quite different.

Secular geologists give faulty stories for the formation of the petrified forest and painted desert. The true explanation is in a creation science Genesis Flood model.

Not only are there thousands of logs that have turned to stone, but numerous colors that inspire people to say the place looks painted. Supposedly, forests were knocked over and were turned to stone over long ages. Also, there are layers of different colors. Those and other details that don't fit explanations from uniformitarian geology. Creation science models of the Genesis Flood not only refute secular geological stories, but provide a superior explanation for what is observed.

When the first migrants after Babel arrived in northeastern Arizona, imagine their wonder at the sight of rainbow-colored petrified logs scattered across the “painted desert” badlands. Colorful gray, red, pinkish-orange, blue, purple, and green layered hills; flat sandstone-topped mesas; sculptured buttes; and hoodoos (tall, thin spires of soft rock with a cap of hard rock) make this deeply eroded, barren landscape a breathtaking sight to behold.

. . . 

This desert still attracts nearly a million visitors every year, each wondering the same thing: How did these hills get “painted”? And how did the colorful petrified logs form? When visitors venture to the trails, the national park signs tell them a story of slow processes over millions of years. However, this landscape actually paints a different picture—one of a violent catastrophe that overtook this area not that long ago.
