Volcanoes produced oil? Not dead dinosaurs?

July 24, 2008

I know, I know…don’t write in about the dinosaur bit, kids. Still, two scientists at the University of Alberta have a theory that most of the oil we have available today is a result of massive growth of sea life followed by a massive dieoff, 94 million years ago.

This, of course, is not the first different look at oil formation. My favorite is the theory by some Russian scientists, since as far back as the 1950s that we have the oil-production process all wrong, and that oil is constantly being produced in the Earth’s mantle. Link

In either case, we don’t have the definitive information we think we do. It may be similar to the global warming hoax, where the reality of variations of solar output explain the measurements just as well but are dismissed by those who know “how things really are.”

If there is one thing I’ve learned in almost 54 years on this planet, it’s that we certainly don’t know it all…and probably never will, until God explains it to us.
