Petrified brains

This is what passes for "science" these days. Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in south-central Washington bought pine and poplar boards at a lumber yard and cut it into half-inch cubes. They then gave the pieces an acid bath, then soaked it in a silica solution for days. The wood was air-dried, cooked in an argon-filled furnace at temperatures as high as 1,400 degrees and cooled in argon to room temperature. Argon is an inert gas, so it won't react with the molecules in the wood, allowing whatever chemicals are in the wood to react to each other. The result was a new silicon carbide that exactly replicates petrified wood.

Yet when ABC News reports on the finding, they still state -- as fact -- that naturally forming petrified wood takes millions of years.

I seriously doubt any of the zealots of the religion of Evolution would admit that the experiment disproves the theory (that they pretend is a fact) that wood takes millions of years to petrify.
