More creationist untruths by Danie Theron

In a comment made by Danie Theron on September 21. 2014 on an article, , he started with:

Yes it is Gordon...petrified trees found standing straight up through layers that is supposedly millions of years apart...

I asked him a few questions after that. My comments and questions were:

Danie on the Gish Gallop again.

 Really? Where? When?

 Please provide references to these. Not creationists claiming this. Peer-reviewed, scientific references where the scientists actually claimed this.

 Without those I think that you were telling a lie.

Danie later 'answered' with something like Google it yourself. I did. All I got were claiming the same thing, without presenting references.

My take on it is that Danie did not tell the truth.

As someone else (Cyber) put it under the comments from of the same article:

This is the ultimate creationist straw man. Make an absolute fallacious statement, attribute that statement to your opposition, and then break down that statement.


Please provide those references. Not creationists putting up a straw man, but references to geologists  claiming that in the peer-reviewed appropriate journals.

Please provide references on where those  layers are supposed to be millions of years apart.

Come on Danie, you don't want everyone else in the world to think that you lied, or don't you worry about it?
