Oil & Natural Gas
Natural Renewable Resources Manufactured in Earth’s Crust
(Not From Dead Dinosaurs and Decaying Plant Life)
The question of oil’s origin has been going on for hundreds of years. We are taught as children that buried plants & dinosaurs is where oil comes from. This happens because deep in the earth it is very hot and there is so much pressure that carbon is fuse to become diamonds and plants & animals become oil. This is hard to prove scientifically, but it seems like a good theory. The only problem is, when we run out of dinosaurs & plants, we run out of oil.
Now comes scientific proof that oil is not necessarily manufactured from dinosaurs & pants. The data indicates that oil is actually generated deep beneath the earth’s surface by fusing those smelly rotten egg gasses from
If this is correct, the oil supply on earth is a renewable resource. This means an “unlimited” supply of oil and natural gas for all practical purposes. But how do we know for sure?
We may start with some NASA discoveries as further proof that oil & natural gas does not require dead plants & animals. NASA discovered that Titan, the largest moon of Saturn, contains natural gas. Now who is to argue that at some point there were dinosaurs on Titan, or ancient forests, or possibly even plankton of some kind. As far as the scientists know, no sign of biological life has been found to have ever lived on Titan. Yet, there is abundant natural gas.
NASA also reported natural gas in the atmosphere of Mars by the Mars Express spacecraft. The source of the natural gas on Mars could be either buried plants & old dead dinosaurs or it could be manufactured in some other way.
These recent scientific findings are important because they support the argument that the origins of oil and natural gas come from deep within “Mother Earth” herself in places where no biological life can exist. Oil and gas are most probably manufactured all over inside the planet without the requirements of plant and animal waist. It would seem that oil and natural gas are a renewable resource and manufactured in tremendous amounts providing us with a nearly inexhaustible supply.

Laser heating shows that petroleum could have non-dinosaur origins
Laser Focus World, News Breaks, Vol. 46, No. 5, Page 9, May 2010
Researchers at the Carnegie Institution of Washington (Washington, DC), the Lomonosov Moscow State Academy of Fine Chemical Technology (Moscow, Russia), and the Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm, Sweden) have used laser heating in a diamond anvil cell (DAC) to demonstrate that high-temperature compression of natural elements in the upper mantle of the earth do indeed create hydrocarbons that could be transported through deep faults to shallower regions of the crust and contribute to petroleum reserves in an abiotic (having nothing to do with biology) process.
By exposing methane and ethane—both naturally occurring mantle gases—to pressures higher than 2 GPa and heating them with a yttrium lithium fluoride (
